Reasons You Should Own a Pelican Cooler

Outdoor enthusiasts who love to bring their lunch, drinks, and other things on adventures need to invest in some outdoor gear that will keep all their items cold as they’re hiking, fishing, or camping. One outdoor item that works particularly well for keeping things cold is the Pelican cooler—these coolers can keep things cold or hot with no issues over extended periods.

Visual Appeal

Unlike other premium coolers where it’s hard to distinguish one from the next, Pelican’s distinctive look has managed to remain eye-catching while also standing the test of time. Thanks to their vast latches, vertical ridges, and steel bottle opener, these coolers look great. In addition to the different colors, you can choose based on the size—those who wish to can customize them.

Durability and portability

The thick walls of Pelican’s coolers and high-quality components make these quite heavy, but they come with various features to assist you. You can choose between rotating handles and molded handles (for carrying), wheeled configurations, and telescopic towing handles.

There are several convenience features included, including the built-in bottle opener, molded cup holders, fish scale, and high-flow drain port. Pelican brings quality to the market by offering a limited lifetime warranty and grizzly bear-proof hard-sided coolers.

Insulation Ability

On average, you will find that the wall thickness for premium coolers is between 2 inches and 5 inches thick. A rubber gasket holds the lid and body together while the insulation is tucked into quality rotomolded walls.

Pelican’s unique latch design offers incredible clamping force, making the gasket work to its full potential. In addition to the large storage volume, you can expect some seriously long-lasting ice. Depending on the size, placement, and conditions, you can expect it to last anywhere from 22 hours up to 45 hours.

Pelican Cooler FAQs

  1. Can my Pelican cooler retain ice regardless of its color? Pelican coolers come in a wide variety of colors, and the color of the cooler affect its ability to retain ice. An object’s color is determined by the wavelength of light it reflects or absorbs—the darker the cooler, the more light will be absorbed, generating more heat. The brighter the Cooler, the more wavelengths of light it will reflect and therefore convert less light into heat. The darker coolers will have a higher temperature, which will result in the ice inside melting more quickly. You can reduce the color effect of your cooler by placing it in a shaded area when you’re using it. This could be a tree, a picnic table, or a canopy at a campsite.
  2. Is my Pelican cooler gasket gapped? All Pelican coolers feature a small gap in the gasket to release pressure when the cooler is being used. This helps the coolers open easily. In most coolers, this gap is between 1/8″ and 1/4″ wide, and it won’t impact ice retention. In addition, it also allows you to use dry ice with your hard-sided Pelican cooler.
