We bought the 45 qt Pelican (amazon) for 220 for the GA Mountain fest. And it is amazing. Highly recommend this. The only down side is the weight, even empty it is heavy. Upside on day four ice is at the same level as day one and almost one solid frozen block. Next time i will start will start with 10 pound block ice and loose ice in ziplock bags. Btw 2 bags ice went in on monday nite. Added some ice more on tuesday to top off the drinks. Last nite at pre pre fest party had to chisel out the drinks. We are both real fanatics when transporting food (too many course in bacti) and i felt really confident about the chorizo we were bring to the fest.
