Voted the "COOLEST COOLER" by Cook's Illustrated Magazine - read the review HERE!
Voted as one Christopher Kimball's Mostly Practical 2011 AND 2012 Holiday Gift List (America's Test Kitchen Founder and Editor.) As stated:
"...this is by far the best cooler ever made. It has rolling wheels, a collapsible handle, and double-wall insulation with a removable inner liner, and it does a fabulous job keeping stuff cool since it is air insulated. It is also light and collapses for easy storage. (And it has a peek-a-boo flap on top for quick access.) I love it and use it all the time..."Cook's Illustrated magazine compared the T-Rex to 3 other coolers - the T-Rex came out as number ONE! Read the full review at Cook's Illustrated August 2011 magazine!
See some quotes below:
"layer of plastic lining on the interior of the T-Rex created an insulating air pocket between the cooler's interior and the foam"
"by the end of testing, we decided that the T-Rex was a cooler we'd be happy to take anywhere."
Featured on The Today Show - 8/10/2011 and the following was quoted "...the best thing I've ever brought on your show..."
It's called the T-Rex Rolling Cooler - and it's called the T-Rex for a reason! This rolling bag is the BIGGEST of all our rolling coolers
! And with it's mega wheels you can feel the vibrations before you see it!
The rolling bag has a large main compartment that holds from 62 to 70 (12oz) cans. With an easy access pocket on the lid (which means you can reach in and grab a drink/snack without unzipping the cooler, it's a small pocket on top secured by velcro) and a removable, zippered leak proof inner liner - this makes this one of our best, biggest and baddest rolling coolers!
There is also a large front zippered pocket as well as a smaller open pocket in front. This bag comes with a removable/adjustable shoulder strap plus padded carry handles.
This sturdy cooler bag is foldable and has mega sturdy wheels. Plus a NEW PUSH BUTTON RELEASE telescopic aluminum handle. From bottom of cooler to the top of handle measures in at 40.5" H.

Vinyl & polyesterSuggested ice/hot pack size:
Please do not use loose ice with these coolers
, ice packs are recommended. Please find more information in the FAQ tab (next to description tab).
Why do you suggest NOT putting loose ice into the cooler? What ice packs
should I use?
We usually suggest not putting loose ice due to it melting faster and also the sharp edges of the bag may puncture holes in the insulation causing leaks. This bag does come with a removable inner liner which helps with the insulation so please use ice packs. Ice packs are available in many different sizes and styles.
Can food be kept warm in these coolers as well as cold?
Yes, insulation can be used for both hot or cold (not together). To keep foods warm, we highly recommend using hot-packs (please read instructions on heating). A couple of tips to keep your food warm: once food has been heated - wrap in tin foil, then place inside cooler (if you have room, wrap again with a kitchen towel to keep in the heat). Place hot-paks on top. Again, try to fill any spaces with kitchen towels.
Are these coolers lead free?
The interior of these lunch coolers has been tested and has passed the lead test required.
How does the cooler collapse?
The cooler arrives in a collapsed state. There is a velcro strap on the bottom to keep it in a collapsed state.
Can I bring this cooler aboard the plane?
Although our rolling coolers are very popular for traveling, you must check with the airlines to see what size capacity is allowed. In a closed, collapsed position this cooler will fit in the overhead compartment - however will not fit under the seat. Open and full of beverages/food - check with the airlines. This is a really big bag - so it's really important that you check to make sure if it will be allowed on board. In our experience you cannot bring this aboard a domestic flight.
Note: If this bag is checked into the airline, we are not responsible for any damage that may occur to either the bag or the inside contents.
How big is this cooler?
The approx size is listed under all coolers. These sizes are of the outside of the cooler. The inside size is given in can capacity. This cooler is large enough for 4-6 people.
Can I just buy one cooler or do I have to buy in bulk?
You can buy one cooler or as many as you like.
I would like to order a couple of coolers and have them customised with my logo...
We only customise (screen print/embroider, etc) a certain quantity - for this item it's 500 units since it's imprinted overseas.
How long will my food and/or beverages stay cold/hot?
Your cooler should last all day (from 5-8 hrs). Obviously the way you pack your cooler and how many times you open
your cooler will determine how long your food and/or beverages will stay
Please read here for further information oh how to take care of and pack your radio ice cooler.
