      I like the cooler, but bad delivery

      My main reason for two stars is the choice of delivery method. The shipping label was put directly on the cooler... there was no box or protection. While I can appreciate avoiding packaging waste, my cooler arrived with several gouges and black marks. Also, there is adhesive residue on the cooler from the tape and packing slip. I don't plan to keep my cooler perfect because it will be used hard, but it would be nice to receive it in new condition. As for the cooler, I have a positive initial impression. The latching mechanism is a bit more involved than a yeti style cooler, but works well. The accessory system actually seems relatively useful, and I appreciate that they include at least a few accessories to get started (tray and bottle opener). I do intend to get a divider, as I think that will be useful. The handles are personal preference. They do take up more space than the rope style handles, but I like the positive connection I have to the cooler when carrying a lot of weight. That's why I focused my search on Cabela's/pelican/OtterBox style coolers. Ultimately it came down to a good sales price. Other than the disappointing shipment, I'm excited to put this cooler to use.

      Just as good as the more popular 4-letter cooler

      Be prepared for this cooler to take up some space in the back of your vehicle. Overall, it's worth it though. Full disclosure, I got it on a Deal-of-the-Day, so I paid considerably less than retail. For just bringing it in from a 90° garage and dumping ice into it and a 12-pack of cans and taking off on a road trip, it performed very well. With minimal preparation (pre-chilling the interior), I'm sure I could have gotten an additional 12 hours of ice. That is a key to preparing for use. Put a bunch of ice in it and then fill it to the top with water for a few hours. The interior will be to a more desirable temperature and then you just drain the water, add your items and ice and you're set. The extra accessories seem quite handy, and the included removable bottle opener is great. The dry box and divider weren't necessities, but came in very handy.

      Great Cooler, Poor Packaging.

      Posted

      Like others have said, there is no packaging for these coolers. I picked up in store and it has marks, scrapes, and gouges on it. It's a cooler that will see abuse, so it's not the end of the world. When you spend that kind of money on something though, you want it to be pretty when you buy it. Bought for camping since the fridge in my travel trailer isn't super reliable and can take 12-24 hours to get cold. I needed a cooler for backup that can keep cold for a weekend or even longer on a few bags of ice. This cooler has performed so far. The price is pretty steep, even at half off (Deal of the day). I can justify $150 on the cooler way easier than I can $300 though. I'm hoping this is the last cooler I ever need to buy (at least in this size).

      Bear-y Great Gift Idea

      The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. This cooler is a great gift idea for the outdoorsman on your holiday shopping list. It's a nice looking cooler, and the fact that it's rated for bear resistance means it's great for campers. I especially love the ridges in the interior that allow you to slide in a separator that works well for keeping your food and drinks separate. I also LOVE the clipping spots on the outside of the cooler that lets you hook cup holders, bottle openers, and clips to the outside of the cooler. I think this cooler is great for tailgating fans too since it looks great and can hold a LOT of drinks!

      I have been eyeing this cooler for awhile and never wanted to spend the $299 for it. I opened my email this morning and seen the price 50% off and then I knew I was going to have to get one. Let me tell you its awesome, well constructed, great big handles, tray inside for items you don't want in the ice or water, bottle opener and my favorite part the locking lid. I purchased the Walmart brand a couple of years ago and like it but the handles are just not easy when you're carrying it by yourself because it swings back and forth and just makes it awkward. Other reviews on this cooler have been good so I think I'm going to use it all the time on our side by side.

      Great Cooler But...

      We love this cooler. The 45 quart is the size we wanted so we could get a case of beer and a few other odds and ends in. The dry tray and bottle opener are a huge plus. Our issue is the coolers in the store were dirty and banged up. They don’t have these in boxes at the store and it looks like they were slid around and had other items stacked on top. I ordered online for store pickup and the two they had on hand were both dirty and scratched. I picked the better one for it was a Deal of the Day and I needed it right away. If you order online I recommend having it shipped so you get one that should be in better shape. If you buy one at a store check it out good for it may be slightly damaged.

      The OtterBox Venture 45-Quart Cooler Is Amazing

      Posted

      We took the new Venture 45-Quart Cooler with us on a 1,600-mile road trip to Fargo, ND. You know, to break it in and see how it would work for a family of 4. It let us bring everything we needed to keep cool for our week long trip without needing to restock food, drink or ice! We filled the cooler with two small bags of ice, some chicken salad, apples, lunch meat, oranges, carrots, drinks and more. Even after leaving the cooler in the car for 5 days and opening it several times a day our food and drinks were refrigerator cool.

      All the protection of a otterbox in cooler form

      This cooler is as sturdy and heavy duty as it comes. It does hold ice for a very long time. I was able to get 5 days of ice out of it with regular opening and closing of the lid. One down side is the cooler is very heavy even without anything in it. If you plan to fill it up with ice and drinks then you might need a wagon to lug it around. Be careful if you plan to have bestbuy ship it to you. The cooler was shipped to me without any protection so the cooler got pretty banged up during transportation. I got the white cooler so the damage shows a lot more than it would if I went with a darker color.
