I have a Mesquite Ridge 37 which is the same body as the SJC but without the rope handles. Paid $99 for it at Publix of all places. Good construction but no where as good a cooler as my RTIC 45. Not even close to holding 37 quarts or 40 quarts as SJC claims, more like 32 quarts. Poor gasket material on the lid,less insulation in the body, look at the weight of the coolers compared to similar sizes. I get better ice retention from my rtic 40 soft sider. But for $100 bucks if you need a roto cooler this one will do as a day tripper.
