There are coolers and then there are Stingray coolers! Our Rotomolded coolers are far superior to injection molded brands and rival the best in the industry. They are super tough and keep iced for 3-5 days! Ideal for fishing, boating, the beach or any activity where you want to keep your products on ice. They all come with a handy divider/chopping board to keep drinks, food, or fish separate, and to cut those limes! Our 55L model has a heavy duty stainless steel handle and all terrain wheels to make transporting it a breeze, and the military grade rope carry straps make for a comfortable lift. Don't be fooled by cheap imitations - Some coolers say they are Rotomolded but are actually not.
We would recommend unbolting and removing the stainless steel handle if you are using this on choppy boat rides.
Coolers come in all shapes and sizes, and can be extremely expensive, so make sure you consider the following before purchasing.
Ice longevity-A cheaper injection molded cooler will keep ice solid and drinks cold for a few hours, whereas a more expensive rotomolded cooler will keep ice cold and solid for up to 5-days or more due to his perfectly even insulation distribution. So the question is what will you be using it for? And secondly how cold do you want your products? If you are going to the beach for 2-hours then a cheaper cooler may do the trick, but if you are going on a long paddle, boat trip, or camping for a few days, then it is most certainly worth getting a high end cooler. If you are fishing then spending more to keep your catch on ice not slush is wise.
Toughness and quality-You really pay for what you get in this regard. An expensive cooler is made by rotomolding which is the pinnacle of plastic moulding. It makes for an evenly distributed and thick mould that is far superior to other techniques. A detailed description of the different manufacturing processes can be foundHERE
Weight-Along with toughness and quality generally comes more weight, so a large rotomolded cooler will be difficult to carry if full of ice and drinks. Look for a lighter, smaller rotomolded cooler if you are taking it on a paddle board or kayak. Consider wheels if it's a super sized high end cooler.
