Designed to traverse tough terrain with ease, the Pelican ProGear 45QW Elite Wheeled Cooler has 8-inch heavy-duty wheels with an extended pull handle.

Additional adventure-friendly features include a built-in bottle opener, lid-integrated fish scale, and raised anti-skid feet. The Pelican ProGear 45QW Elite Wheeled Cooler is also certified bear-resistant by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee.

Perfect for fishing, boating, camping, or hanging out at the beach, the newest Pelican ProGear Elite Cooler holds up to 45 U.S. liquid quarts. All Pelican ProGear Elite Coolers are built tough to exacting military standards and are engineered with rugged polymer exterior walls that feature a 2-inch polyurethane foam core, which ensures extreme ice retention.
