Coleman Xtreme can be said to be a good brand cooler and for people who prefer a recognized brand cooler, this can be a good option. Also, as this cooler has 5 wheels, it can be easily moved from one place to another.
The technology in Coleman Xtreme uses an insulation lid along with some extra insulation in the walls so that the items that you keep in the cooler can remain cool for upto 5 days. In any cooler insulation is extremely important because it helps in maintaining the temperature. Moreover the insulation in a cooler also helps to keep the electricity bills low.
When surveyed, the Coleman Xtreme did quite well in the insulation test. For full 3 and a half days, this cooler was able to maintain the temperature below 40 O F. The reason is that this cooler has more airspace that helps in keeping the temperature cool.
Durability factor plays an important role as it determines the factors like the toughness and thickness of a cooler. Thought the number of wheels make it possible to move the cooler easily from one place to another, it comes with a small plastic handle that is not that durable. The lid is durable and is press fit and latch less.
When it comes to durability, the Coleman Xtreme cooler has the least score when compared to the other factors in Coleman Xtreme.
When portability is concerned, the Coleman Xtreme fairs well because of the wheels and the handles. The wheels helps the cooler to move around easily and quickly. But, because of the plastic handles that are provided with the Coleman Xtreme, a lot of effort is required to be put so as to move the cooler.
When compared to other coolers such as the Igloo Glide PRO, the latter was easier to move and the handles that are provided in Igloo Glide PRO provides more balance and leverage because of its rigid and long handles.
Ease of Use
From the point of view of the ease of use, the Coleman Xtreme was found to be average. The positive points include that this cooler is easy to drain as it can easily rotate or turn on its wheels. Apart from that, the draining does not causes any splashing or similar type of inconvenience. The downside is that the press fit latch may get stuck making the lid difficult to open. And on the contrary, this lid may even come off in case of travelling on bumpy roads. This insecurity of the lid makes the cooler unpredictable.
