What is a Roto Molded cooler anyway?

These high end coolers are constructed with what is known as rotationally molded plastic. The rotomolding procedure ensures that every part of the cooler is made with a continuous thick wall with no imperfectionsDue to their unique production process, Roto-molded coolers are more durable than an average plastic or styrofoam cooler. With their insulated walls and seamless design, these coolers are the best coolers for keeping ice from melting too quickly. This ice retention lets you keep your drinks cold, and keeps your catch from spoiling on your fishing, camping or hunting trip.

Why are your coolers cheaper than other brands?
