Grizzly Cooler Review

This is our Grizzly Cooler Review.  The Grizzly Cooler is an American-made premium cooler offering for those looking for a high-quality, well-constructed ice chest that will maximize ice life while being able to withstand the harsh outdoor setting.  These products are roto-molded, meaning that they are a solid piece of hard plastic and extremely tough.  The hinge is molded in place and stainless steel hardware is used to resist failure or rust.  Other helpful features include a 2” drain plug, trademarked BearClaw latches which keep a secure grip and require no hardware, non-slip rubber feet, and embossed ruler.  Cooling is maximized through the use of pressure-injected insulation as well as a premium rubber gasket.  To help with mobility, side rope handles with a nylon grip sleeve are added on both sides.  These products are available in a variety of colors, come in 15, 20, 40, 60, 75, 150, and 400-quart options, and are made of plastic, metal, and rubber.

Insulation ability – 5 star

These coolers really excel at maximizing ice life.  The combination of the thick injected insulation into the rotomolded walls means that little temperature change will happen across the walls.  The well-fitted gasket and secure BearClaw latches help to avoid much cold escaping through the lid.  Finally, the raised legs help to minimize how much heat exchange happens through the ground.  These three facts mean that this cooler should keep things cold for a long time.  Expect ice life of anywhere from 7 to 10 days on the larger sizes and 6 or more days on the smaller sizes.

Mobility and durability – 4.5 star

These are very well-constructed ice chests and as such can handle a lot of abuse.  The walls are very thick and, being one piece, there really aren’t any weak points.  The hinges and latches on the lid, which can oftentimes be failure points on other coolers, are extremely strong and either molded directly onto the body or made of tough stainless steel, making them basically impact and rust-proof.  The side handles are strong enough to carry a full load without breaking and the nylon grips provide extra gripping power.

Visual Appeal – 5 star

These are very aggressive-looking coolers and we love it!  The side and front faces are sunk in and jagged contours are molded into the face, producing a very attractive and intimidating cooler.  This is a nice contrast from many other premium coolers who opt to go with a flat and mundane box design.  The rope and hinges are an alternate color from the monochromatic body, and there are a few different color choices to mix things up.

Cost – 4 star

These are premium coolers and come with a premium price that is well into the highest tier.  You will be expected to pay a high asking price to enjoy this cooler but the features and performance more than justify it.

Overall Rating – 4.5 star

The Grizzly Cooler Review earns 4.5 coolers out of 5.  In terms of ice life, these ice chests are some of the best on the market.  High-quality materials and optimal construction are used and it shows up both in the performance as well as the looks.  The only drawback is the price but if someone is looking for a cooler that will last them for years and provide continuous great performance it is well worth the price.
