Was doing a Costco run today and I found they have the Coho rotomolded 55qt cooler on sale for $79.99.

A month ago I almost grabbed one for $119. I have wanted a rotomolded cooler for awhile and this is the best price I have seen. For almost half the price of the rtic and a fraction of the yeti I couldn’t pass it up. Grabbed one for me and one for my brother.

Don’t know how great they will be but they have to be better than the 20 year old Gatorade cooler I have been using. Plus it’s Costco so if In a year I don’t like it I can take it back. Haha.

Thought I’d pass it along.

I got the one from wallymart a few years ago, in my opinion I don't think the one I bought kept things as cold as I was expecting. I don't know the differences between the one I bought vs the high end ones. It is well built and is a heavy girl, I'll see if our local costco has these today, thanks for the heads up.

The thing with all the rotomolded coolers is you need to get the core temp of the actual cooler cold for it to perform well. Put in a bag of "sacrificial" ice to get that core temp down, drain the water, fill with drinks and ice then limit the times you open the cooler and it'll perform great.....

I have owned a 55 quart for about 3 years. It will keep some ice frozen for 5 days if I only put ice in it and access once per day but honestly I dont go that long in my boat ever. I only use it in my camper for additional ice when going to Mammoth on a week long fishing trip. I tend to use a standard cooler in the boat because it is much lighter to move around or clean out or move in or out of the boat.

Put a couple of gallon frozen water bottles in there, with ice cubes,
And they will keep stuff cold for days.

So here's the results of the 7day ice challenge. I put a 12 pack Sculpin IPA along with (2) 20#bag of ice from BevMo.
Drank some beers on the weekends and after home office and the ICE disipated around 4.5 days.
If it's loaded with provisions the cooler is heavy as f*ck and its staying in the truck.
I think it's fine for camping/fishing but for extended day I recommend a thicker insulated core like the 55qt.
