I have a blue 150 quart igloo cooler and open and close it 4.7 times an hour for 13 seconds each time on average. My buddy has a white 150 quart igloo cooler who opens .8 times an hour for 13 seconds on average. My cooler has ice after 5 days, his is water in 3.

I put a bag of rice in cooler to absorb water as ice melts, yet the residual ice refreezes the rice.

Everyone should look at the Orion coolers that would really fire up this debate.

I have a couple orions. The 85 and the 45. They are total overkill. I believe they hold ice longer than anything currently on the market. Retail price is insane though. They said they have a 120 qt in the works.

They look nice but I'd never know which color combo holds ice best. 😆

White cooler lasted 8% longer than black (109 vs. 101 hours - see the report)
