Engel Deep Blue

The Engel Deep Blue did fairly well in our insulation tests and managed to keep food at the right storage temperature for 5 days (ideal for longer trips due to its ability to store food for a long period). It also held ice in its solid state for 6 days, putting it slightly behind as compared to the ORCA 58 Quart.

In comparison to traditional models, the Engel Deep Blue does exceedingly well in terms of its performance clearly setting it apart from other traditional models available in this category. We rate the cooler among the best in terms of its durability as it has well constructed exteriors and also solid handles, hinges and latches.

The structural integrity of the lid and seal is very solid as it did not leak any water during the slosh test we put the cooler through — ranking it among the top performers such as the Pelican and the ORCA and easily outshining other models such as the Rubber Maid and the Igloo Max Cold.

The cooler also has extendible handles that are designed just short of the drain plug avoiding any obstruction. The drain works best with the lid sealed on as it creates a vacuum enforcing a faster drain.

The latches of the cooler are a bit different in design– a hard metal lid is used to hook the plastic levers shut. These metal hooks can also be used as bottle openers in case of an emergency.

The lid stays in an upright position when opened even when we kept rummaging around for a while. A small drawback, however, is that the cooler tends to be a bit uncomfortable when carrying heavy weight.

In terms of the price point, we found the cooler to be priced higher than other coolers offering the same features and performance such as the ORCA 58 Quart or the Pelican ProGear Elite.
