With football season and tailgating in full swing, Pelican Products, Inc. adds to its robust collection of coolers with the new Pelican 55QT Tailgater Cooler

The Pelican 55QT Tailgater Cooler is designed to take your next tailgate party in to overtime. Equipped with a built-in bottle opener, integrated dual “lid-within-a-lid” design in a distinctive gray color for easy identification access to drinks and inner trays to keep food cold and dry. For increased mobility it features heavy-duty wheels, with molded-in handles and a telescoping trolley handle.

The cooler is built tough to exacting military standards and engineered with rugged polymer exterior walls that feature a thick polyurethane foam core to ensure ice retention for days. With that kind of performance, the party will have cold drinks and fresh food all the way from game day tailgating to the end of a long weekend. In addition, the new Pelican 55QT Cooler features a sloped drain and tethered, threaded plug so users can attach it to a garden hose for easy cleanup.

“The Pelican 55QT Cooler is the ultimate tailgating solution — whether you’re at the game, hanging out on the beach, camping with family, or getting together with friends at home” said Jeff Diamond, Director of Product Management – Consumer/Outdoor and Travel Goods Markets, Pelican Products, Inc. “Its portable size, convenient trolley system and legendary ruggedness allows the party to continue all day or all weekend.”

Beyond the tailgate party, the newest Pelican Cooler holds up to 55 liquid quarts (U.S.) for use while fishing, boating or camping— secure press-and-pull latches, non-skid feet and corrosion-resistant stainless steel hardware, a freezer-grade o-ring seal and dual molded-in handles for easy transport and tie-off.

With an MSRP of $449.95 the Pelican 55QT Tailgater Cooler compliments the nine other coolers in the line (20QT, 35QT, 45QT, 45QW, 65QT, 80QT, 95QT, 150QT and 250QT) and is available in Marine White. They can be purchased through the authorized Pelican Dealer network. All Pelican Coolers are backed by a lifetime guarantee of excellence.
