Marine vs. Non marine cooler?

I'm running out of room in my ~70qt cooler and thinking of picking up a 100 or 120 quart cooler. I see threads recommending the marine coolers, but are they better for cooladors? The price is higher and it's harder to find >100 qt models for a reasonable price.

Any good pros or cons to sticking with a regular Igloo or Coleman jobber?

Thanks!

Jacob

i myself bought a marine cooler, strictly for the grooves on the sides that when stood up straight you can slide shelves in there and make it like a cabinet. but as far as keeping humidity, i dont think theres a difference.

Good to know! I don't think I'll need the groves as a chest setup will work better for the space I have.

Re: Marine vs. Non marine cooler?

I have had no issues at all with my coleman, the humidity got a tad high (about 71% i like to keep it in the low 60's) so i took my kitty litter out.. its been 3 weeks and its still only 68% in there. lol

Marine coolers are great if yer gonna take em offshore.
For cigars, it's overkill. All they need to be is airtight.

Like the others, the slots make the big difference.
The insulation factor is also huge......

Re: Marine vs. Non marine cooler?

If you want to see absolute overkill for marine coolers check out the Yetti Tundra.

You'd probably never see a temperature swing in that thing, but it has 3" of insulation in it. One of my dad's friends used one to transport halibut he caught on a fishing trip in Alaska with one, and everything remained rock solid in it for the whole drive back to Michigan.

Of course it is complete overkill for storing cigars unless you have money to throw away.

The 250qt. is only $750!!! What a deal!


Oh yah.. They are rated to keep a grizzly bear out too. Could help keep your stash safe should your house be invaded by woodland creatures.

Those are some cool coolers (pun intended). Only $750! No way I would spend that much on a cooler, but thats me.
