Carry handles are important to move the box from A to B, but what about over longer distances? Well, whilst you can get coolers with wheels, the weight of the Coleman Xtreme really negates that need since it weighs just 8.6 lbs (obviously more when fully loaded with goodies) but that should make it managable for a single adult or even 2 kids holding one-side each.

The 2-way handles provide easy carrying and lifting in and out of your vehicle and they are large enough to get your entire hand through, so no more tiny handles unsuitable for groups!
