Rated 5 out of 5 by Renegade7 Expensive but Good
Cost is considerably higher than a garden variety cooler from a big box store but the quality takes a big uptick also and as a coach that is what I need. I like the screw on top combined with a rubber gasket for a better seal and this one has that feature. The last Gatorade team cooler I bought lasted 6 years so durability should not be an issue.

This is an awesome water cooler. I was originally looking for the 5 gallon cooler, however it was not in the store. According to Gatorade labeling, this 7 gallon water cooler is sufficient for a team of 15. I was supplementing water for a marching band of 65, so this size is more appropriate for us anyway.
A gallon of water weighs 8 pounds, so full, this is 56 pounds. Each side has a solid molded handle and we can easily manage it with 2 people. Due to its weight, I would not put this on a card table, but on a solid surface. For us it was back of truck or trailer.
We have used this over 7 times now and has been awesome to hydrate our group.
