Engel ENG65 vs Igloo Wheelie Cooler

Analysis:

The Igloo Wheelie Cooler 38-Qt makes for a good, if unremarkable, Hard Cooler for people with a $30 budget.

The Engel ENG65, however, is merely mediocre at its $279 asking price, when compared to similarly priced products, and won't satisfy the needs of most people.

In either case, we suggest that you first take a look at some other options at the $30 and $310 price points before committing to one of these - it's likely that you'll be able to find some better alternatives.
