Coleman Steel Belted Cooler

An Alternative to Extreme


  • Classic good looks
  • Steel-sheathed durability
  • Great performance
  • Attractive pricing relative to extreme all-plastic coolers

Enduring Classic Design

The Coleman Steel-Belted Cooler is an "extremely sufficient", attractive ice chest solution. Despite the enormous growth of the all-plastic rotationally-molded, high-performance cooler category, the iconic Coleman steel belted cooler continues to stand out in the ice chest realm. For those seeking an aesthetic solution, maybe for camping, picnicking, or as a drink presentation vessel when entertaining, the Coleman steel belted cooler excels. Its insulation factor is more than enough for most short- to medium-duration demands.

Attractive Price for Performance

For long-term cold-keeping performance, these classic coolers can be beaten by modern technology. But, in the face of increasing competition from newer-technology (rotary-molded) ice chests, the prices of classic Coleman Steel-Belted Coolers seem to be more attractive than ever. Also, when compared to many less-expensive competitors, these steel-sheathed Coleman coolers remain attractive, durable considerations.

Importantly, readers should not be lead to believe that these handsome ice chests are all-metal. The exterior lid and side walls are steel. But, they are lined inside with plastic and their exterior bottoms are plastic as well.

Invaluable Gifts

Serious sportsman that need high performance ice chests for hunting or fishing might scoff at these old-technology coolers. Just about anyone else would no doubt prize such a handsome, useful and durable gift.
