Hands On: 25 Quart Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler

I picked up Igloo’s 25 Quart Marine Cooler toward the beginning of this year.  I saw someone with one at an event and I really like the size and the looks of it.  I got this primarily for carrying and keeping beer and other items cold.  I’m not suggesting this as a good cooler to use as a mash tun (no drain).  I’m suggesting it’s a good cooler to use as a… cooler.

Igloo Marine Ultra CoolerClose up of the right hand side logo – Igloo Marine Ultra

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler ReviewThe left hand side label – click to zoom.  UV Inhibitors Guard Against Sun Damage.  Long Lasting Hinges.  Stainless Steel Lid Strap.  Comfort Handles.  Made in the USA.  25 Quarts/23 Liters.  36 Can Capacity.

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler ReviewThe lid

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler ReviewHandle close up

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler ReviewThis holds both larger/taller German Style bottles and 22 oz bottles.

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler ReviewThe 22 oz bottles come very close to poking up over the top of the cooler, however, the lid has an indentation and closes fine with 22 oz bottles.

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler ReviewYou can stack two 12 ounce cans, you can also stack a 16 oz can and a 12 oz can.  Two 16 oz cans are too tall.

Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler ReviewOf course standard and standard-ish (like these Anchor Porter) beer bottles work just fine.

img_img_8393Without a lot of thought while packing… this cooler held all of this beer.

Igloo Cooler ReviewI’ve owned this since early 2015.  I really like it’s build quality and size.  It’s well made.  It’s compact, but can still hold quite a bit including the ability to carry larger 22 oz bottles.
