From my studies as far as consumer grade goes , the igloos are more expensive than coleman, but have better hardware. They both hold cold as long as one another.
Ultimately its how you use the cooler. How often you open the lid, if you add another piece of foam on top of your contents, drain the water off as it melts, etc.
