Classic Pelican Cooler Features

You already know how amazing Pelican’s hard-sided coolers are. They’ve been delivering on one adventure after another for years now. So it’s no surprise that Pelican’s personal cooler is filled with features that you’re already familiar with from their other hard-sided coolers.

A High Performance Cooler From Pelican

This versatile personal cooler is made by Pelican, so there are some things you can expect from it without question. It features a thick, continuous layer of insulation to give you maximum ice retention. The 14QT Personal Cooler can hold ice for up to 36 hours, so your drinks will stay frosty all day long. This cooler, like all Pelican coolers, is also true to capacity, which means you have a full 14 quarts inside to use as you need to! This is the perfect lunch box cooler because when you follow the 2:1 ice ratio, you’ll have room for 6 canned beverages plus food. You can even give your cooler's ice retention a boost by using two 1lb Pelican Ice packs or one 2lb Pelican Ice pack inside.

The Hardware You’re Familiar With

Hard-sided Pelican coolers are famous for their unique press & pull latches. These latches stay shut until you open them, but they’re easy to open one-handed even if you’re wearing gloves or have limited dexterity. So of course you’ll find them on the new 14QT Personal Cooler. After all, it couldn’t be called a Pelican cooler without them. You’ll also find a stainless steel bottle opener built into the lock hasp of the 14QT Personal Cooler. But on this cooler, the bottle opener has been updated with a cap-catching magnet. Now your lunch box cooler will help keep your meal site cleaner than ever.

Thoughtful Design with You in Mind

The lid of this cooler features two molded-in drink holders, so you have somewhere to set your drink while you’re eating. You’ll also find molded-in tie down slots so you can keep your cooler secure while you’re traveling with it. Of course, Pelican’s personal cooler is also easy to carry around thanks to several design features borrowed from the 20QT Elite Cooler: a rigid carry handle and an EZ carry groove that allows the cooler to be more comfortably held at your side.

Brand New Features for this Versatile Personal Cooler

The Right Accessories for a Lunch Box Cooler
