Oops, i think I mispoke about the handles. :oops:
I think it was the IGLOO cooler I looked at had the same flipable handles that the Coleman does.
I will check it out hopefully tomorrow.
So the theme this year is like a giant camp out in the desert? With people bringing lots of shit from all over? uh.. -Marscrumbs

Im pretty sure Coleman has "borrowed" the handle design now.
I will try to get a pic.

I was WAY wrong about the handles in both cases!
I was at boxmart looking at coolers and the Coleman cooler was right next to an Igloo cooler and thought it was the Igloo with the flipping handles....
WRONGO!!! It was the Coleman with the bad handles!
After a closer look I do indeed see how the Coleman handles would be prone to breaking off.
Thanks to all the reviewers info, I will save up a few more $$ and go with an Igloo with the better handles!
SORRY for the misinformation on my part! :oops:

Oh, sorry. Ummm, yeah. Oops. Sometimes my keyboard gets ahead of me. I guess we're not quite at the mayonaisse stage yet.

Mayonnaise and saran wrap....good lube and protection in a bind, or strictly off limits?
