Why not?
My overflow-ador is the same size, but the lid lifts right off.
As long as it holds the RH in, go for it!

Short term, probably okay.

However, if you look closely, the top is not insulated and does not seal well at all.

It is basically a lunch box with insulated sides and bottom.

I actually used one of these, albeit the older version, some years ago to hold quite a few cigars. Put cedar insert sheets in and used a foam block with 50/50 pg & H2O. It kept a constant 70% with nary a fluctuation!

As they say in old folks homes, 'DEPENDS'!
If you are in a very dry environment, it is unlikely the weak seal on that coolerdor will help much. Any container with a 'good seal', ie burpable tupperware containers, tend to work quite well for short trips. Also, the burpable containers are better shaped for storage.
Mig, YMMV

I agree with mannish on this one. I agree with all that have metioned a poor seal on this particular cooler......

I have a similar sized cooler that has a hinged, flat lid that seals very well. I used it for travel only before I got serious and bought one small and one large Sherman traveldors. I agree with previous comments....avoid the one you mentioned and buy a conventional cooler with an airtight lid if you need some temporary space.
