Picnicking with Coleman: The Coleman 70 Qt. Xtreme Cooler Will Keep Your Ice Frozen for 5 Days & Keep Your Drinks Cool & Food Fresh!


The Coleman 70 Qt. Xtreme Cooler…
Pure awesomeness.

Technically, the first day of Autumn this year is September 22nd, with that said, we are enjoying the warm weather and sunshine as much as we can. Some of you may know that we are huge fans of Coleman and it is one of our favorite go-to brands. I had the chance to review the Xtreme 5 cooler from Coleman and we were stoked of course.

We decided to take a little day trip bright and early with our littlest. We packed a small little picnic lunch, drinks and snacks and we headed out. We filled the cooler with ice and off we went to play in the park and walk some trails. The weather was beautiful and perfect for our little day trip!


Robust and Durable.

The Xtreme 5 cooler keeps ice for up to 5 days in temperatures up to 32 degrees. Isn’t that amazing? And we put it to the test as we left the ice in the cooler and it DID NOT melt. I was blown away by that alone and not to mention it is 66 litres and can hold up to 100 cans!

It’s EZ clean top has a smooth surface for easy and quick washing! The hinged top was useful because with a toddler, you often only have one hand and if you let go of the top, it just closes and doesn’t fall.


Roomy. Safe and Cool!

What I love about this cooler is that it is rustproof, leak-resistant and a channel drain for no-tilt easy draining. Ahhh, you don’t know how amazing that is. If you’re like me, you wait until it drains and then just push the cooler over on it’s side and drain the rest out. This drain works well and it requires no tilting. It is a godsend. I know that we will be putting this cooler to good use for many years to come.


Need a Seat?

You can take one with the Xtreme 5 cooler! The Have-a-seat lid can hold up to 250 pounds, so if you’re at the beach or at a party and there’s no seating room, you can just relax on the sturdy cooler.

This was one of my favorite features and since it holds that much weight, any adult or kiddie can sit when they want. Once you’re done sitting and you need to move the Xtreme 5, the no crush comfort handles makes the job easy.


Roll It Out.

What I loved the most about the cooler is that it has wheels! Apart from all the awesome features I’ve already mentioned, the fact that if I don’t have a big strong man to help me tug this cooler and I can do it myself–well, that speaks a million things! The tires are strong and rugged and can definitely do it’s job and do it well.

See It In Action!

Now that you’ve seen it rolling, you can see how robust and rugged it is and it’s easy to use. I love how it isn’t only a seat but, it has 4 cup holders that are super handy. Mimi liked it she asked Daddy for a ride, though this isn’t recommended, we thought it was okay to pull her slowly and for a tiny bit. She loved it! So, it’s parent and kid-approved!
