List Of Top Five Party Coolers

Generally speaking, a cooler isn’t a feature point. Most people’s coolers are boring and just simply do the job of keeping your drinks and food cold for a day.

But you’re better than that. You’re going to have a cooler worth being a feature point. You’re going to have a cool that every time you go to get a beer you feel a sense of pride and joy in your best coolers.

A good tailgating cooler makes the party all the more enjoyable which is why I have focused this list on tailgate coolers that have some serious wow factor while still being great at their primary job of keeping beers cold.

1. Pelican ProGear Elite 50

There are a few things that make the Pelican Elite 50 my pick for the best tailgating cooler on the market today.
Ice Retention – Pelican coolers have some of the best ice retentions of all the coolers out there. They kept ice 10+ days in my ice challenge. While you don’t need that much ice retention for a tailgate party what this means is that you can use less ice and your cooler will keep ice longer.

When you’re friends coolers are full of water you’ll still have solid ice in your cooler and your food won’t be all wet. They’ll be drinking warm beers at the end of the day while you’ll be enjoying your crisp cold ones.

Looks Awesome – The design of this cooler is really unique. It stands out and draws attention to itself. The fact that it is eye-catching mixed with how well made this product gives it the definite wow factor.

Practical and Easy To Use – The easy to use push and pull latches make accessing your contents really easy and the cup holders in the lid are a great feature.
Great Price – For a cooler of this quality and this size this is a great price. Compare that to the Yeti 65 which is a similar size and over $100 more expensive.

Tie Downs and Lockable – You can tie this baby to your car or truck and then lock the lid with a padlock. Not only will people not be able to steal your beers while you’re away but they won’t be able to steal your cooler either.

Built in Bottle Opener – This cooler has a built-in bottle opener so you never have to go digging for it. You’ll also never crack your teeth from trying to open a bottle cap using them, so it’ll save you in dentist bills.

Non-Slip Rubber Feet – The feet on this thing are non-slip meaning even if you don’t strap it down it’s not going anywhere while you drive to your tailgating party.

2. Coleman Xtreme 50-Quart Wheeled Cooler

What this cooler lacks in wow factor it makes up for in practicality and ice retention.
While it just looks like an ordinary cooler it certainly doesn’t perform like one. The ice retention in the Coleman coolers Xtreme’s rivals that of some roto-molded coolers that are 5 times more expensive.

The wheels and suitcase style pull up handle are also a great feature for when you need to park a bit of a distance away from the party and walk your stuff in. Cup holders on the lid are a great feature and overall this cooler is built pretty well.

If I could I would give this cooler a 10-star rating for value for money. For the quality of the cooler, the features like the wheels and the incredible ice retention I don’t know how this cooler is so cheap.

If you’re a budget conscious tailgater then this is absolutely the best cooler for you.

3. RovR 80 Wheeled Cooler

But what really sets this cooler apart is it’s multiple features.

The dry basket that slots inside the cooler keeping items cool and dry.
Wheels and a carry handle for easy moving
Slot in cutting board for extra food prep space
2 cup holder for your drinks
Fold out a basket that doubles as a seat allowing you to carry all your gear to the party
This cooler even has a bike attachment so you can put it on the back on your bike and ride to wherever the action is.

It’s an expensive cooler and the design isn’t as great as some other coolers which bring it down but otherwise, it’s a really great cooler

4. Corona Stainless Steel Cooler

It doesn’t feature awesome ice retention or have some amazing whizz-bang features like cup holders, dry baskets and wheels.
Overall it’s not the most practical cooler you can buy. But damn girl! This thing is hot!

Pulling a beer out of this cooler for you and your friends and then cracking it open on the attached bottle opener is just such a satisfying experience.

This cooler makes you feel relaxed and chilled out. It’s a cooler you can be proud of and one that everyone else will think is awesome.

This cooler has the ultimate “cool” factor and is perfect for a day of drinking beers and grilling burgers.

5. Orca 40 Cooler

Its design is simple, beautiful and understated. It has more insulation than almost any other cooler on the market, keeping your stuff cooler longer.

It’s built to last with strong roto-molded exterior and is backed by an amazing lifetime warranty. If you have any problems ever with this cooler you can rest assured knowing that Orca will make it right.
This is the cooler you buy if you do a lot of tailgating and you want to have a great cooler that will last you a lifetime.
