Some manufacturers have 2 levels of coolers.. day tripper level and the more serious outdoorsman kind.

My experience with coolers is the better ones have tops with very deep lips, sometimes with gaskets and the tops fit so snug they are hard to open at times. The Igloo I have now is so loose that when it rains, water makes its way in through the top where you lift.

While any better made cooler has the probability of keeping ice longer....it is about being smart.

Precooling , packing, opening, keeping shaded, etc all help and are user responsibility, not the cooler's.
