What Did We Think?

We have tested quite a few coolers in our day and know how to put a cooler to the Tailgating Challenge. As I scrolled through social media I saw the Halftime Chiller and had to do a double take, as I was like there is no way a tailgating cooler finally looks like a whiskey barrel?

The Halftime Chiller was made to bring a new style to coolers, but also started with the game of Pickleball in mind. The cooler has multiple dry storage areas, which I appreciate to bring some extra goodies on board. This cooler also has a padded seat! This is always a win, as we know good and well we will be sitting on top of the cooler, at some point. Might as well use some padding and make it comfortable.

Next up, let’s talk about portability. The Halftime Chiller has an adjustable handle and wheels that really impressed. When you see the wheels you’re not blown away, as they aren’t giant wheels, but they got through grass, rocks and rolled right over the pavement. Each side has two wheels that helps keeps things spinning even in uneven terrains. The portability was the part of the cooler that impressed me the most.

Onto the chilling aspect. This is a great day cooler. It kept ice for 10+ in 80+ degree heat. This cooler isn’t built for the let’s keep ice for 7 days crowd. It’s made for the let’s go tailgate and drink all the beers in the cooler this afternoon crowd.

The cooler has 2 ways of getting a drink. One you can go through the padded seat and reach in to grab a drink. Another option is that you can also pop the two clasps on the side to open the barrel up.


PROS: fun design, love the wheels, multiple areas for dry storage, padded seat, fair price point
CONS: not going to keep drinks as cold as a rotomolded cooler

Overall, this cooler performed well and got many compliments when we took it out to parties. If you love the style of whiskey barrels, then the Halftime Chiller could be the cooler you didn’t know you needed, until now.
