Igloo Recool vs Coleman Steel-Belted Cooler

Analysis:

The Igloo Recool 16-Qt is a great Hard Cooler for its $6 asking price.

The Coleman Steel-Belted Cooler 54-Qt, however, while a reasonable product for $149, doesn't stack up against its competitors quite as well. If you're considering Hard Coolers in the $170 range, you might want to check out some better options.

The Igloo Recool 16-Qt was loved by reviewers at Wirecutter (NYTimes), a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Coolers" roundup where it was named its "Top Pick", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Taking a look at the Coleman Steel-Belted Cooler 54-Qt, it got featured in roundups from two reliable sources that conduct their own testing - OutdoorGearLab and Your Best Digs - but it fell short of earning a top spot in either.

We also wanted to do a direct Igloo Recool 16-Qt vs. Coleman Steel-Belted Cooler 54-Qt review performance comparison, but we, unfortunately, weren't able to find any Igloo Recool 16-Qt review scores.

Finally, we compared the Coleman Steel-Belted Cooler 54-Qt to other Hard Coolers on the market and found that it did much better than its competitors - its review average of 8.0 out of 10 points is considerably higher than the 6.1 review average of Hard Coolers in general.
