This cooler makes a great secondary cooler on multi-day river trips, and as a lunch/beverage cooler on day trips. We had our first for several years before the zipper failed, but NRS replaced it with a brand new model that has some improvements over our original. The D rings allow the cooler to be easily rigged on the side rails of our raft as a secondary cooler to access during the day. On the last days of a multi-day trip, this cooler will fit inside of our main cooler, allowing us to concentrate our remaining ice and items needing cooled into a cooler within a cooler.

A cool trick: silver air-bubble duct insulation can be cut to fit the floor and sides of this cooler between the inner liner and outer insulating layer, as well as in the mesh pocket on the inside of the lid. This adds significantly to the cooler's R value and will help it hold ice much longer.

I needed a lightweight, soft cooler for a recent extended flying/camping trip. This cooler is ok and better most than other brands I looked into. But on the fourth day I was out of ice and was buying a bag a day after that. I also purchased another cooler that was better insulated and out performed the NRS product. Keep looking, there is a better soft sided cooler out there.

    Comments about NRS Dura Soft Coolers - Closeout:

    For the price I paid it was a solid bargain. It's what I've needed for my summer field days when we are out in the Florida woods and hunker down in a small patch of shade with some breeze along a dirt road between sites. It keeps stuff cool long enough to get us thru long hot days with ice still left in the water bottle at the end of some serious sweat days.. Too bad it's going out of style, it's a step above the average big box outdoor model at this price and a much better value than the pricey/trendy Y-ish products. Buy one if they still have some left if you are impressed by steady Eddie products as opposed to the-best-ever-at-most-everything. I'll take it along on some backcountry canoe paddles in the fall and see how it subs in for the fancy iceboxes some friends occasionally haul. If if proves durable and keeps a few things cool for a day longer it'll be a success.

                A:

                I don't know about any "cans". It does call them six pack coolers, but 30
                cans???? Use the measurements in the spec section tab and forget the can
                reference. If you are kayaking "30" cans is too heavy anyway.
                It keeps hot food hot and cold food cold, but it is not a refrigerator.
                It will warm up on hot weather. But for $35 it is a good bet for an
                overnight or the day trip. The d-rings on the bottom makes it easy to
                attach to the kayak life lines. The wide strap pad makes the carry to the
                boat more comfortable. It will also "crush" and take up less space when
                empty. I've taken it to more pitch-ins dinners than camping. It carries a
                casserole dish quite well. I put a fishing magazine in the bottom for
                added rigidity. The zipper pocket carries snack bars well and has passed
                the flat coat retriever (big dog) resistance test.
                In Florida, we do most kayak camping in the winter (45-80 degrees) and
                plan frozen/refrigerated food to run on in a couple of days so I can't
                comment on multiple day performance. For me it is more versatile and better
                suits my needs than a soft side Yeti..............and cost a lot less.

                hm . . . I'd say it will hold all of that, maybe more with ice. This
                cooler is just "okay" it's more like a "day" cooler for holding items that
                you'll use throughout the day, when you dont want to get into your yeti or
                your larger raft cooler. It's tough and it will tie down well, but it's
                not meant to keep your food/beer cold for very long, particularly in very
                hot conditions -

                A:

                We have the larger size NRS cooler, and while we're quite pleased with its
                performance, I would not think that it would be very watertight. The outer
                fabric shell is not waterproof, nor are the zippers. The removable lining
                on the inside will keep the ice melt water inside the cooler, but not if
                it's turned upside down. We lashed our cooler inside a 9-ft. inflatable
                kayak that we towed behind my 17-ft. sea kayak on a 100+ mile river trip,
                but we never capsized so the cooler wasn't put to the test. It did keep
                things cool, and the ice lasted about 3 days in some pretty hot weather on
                the Upper Missouri in Montana last Sept. If you get this cooler, I would
                highly recommend adding some extra insulation in between the inside liner
                and the outer wall-it really makes a big difference in the R-value. (Just
                look for some of those silver reflective "bubble wrap" insulating sheets in
                a hardware store).
                If you really want a cooler that handles temporary submersion, I think
                you'll need something else.

                A:

                It would leak. The cooler outer material will allow water in if it sits in a ice chest with water in the bottom, and the plastic inside will eventually leak. If it was on your hard kayak, and you flipped and rolled, it might get slightly wet in side, but would definable flood if the kayak was left upside down for any real length of time. Too, I'd say your roll would be much more difficult the the cooler attached to the top of the kayak, versus rolling w/o the cooler.
                It's basically a canvas cooler, with a regular zipper lid, with a plastic liner that zips in/out. They are great little coolers, but not water proof. I've had one for years, and recently purchase a larger one too.

                I have two of these soft coolers. They stay cold longer than one would think. You could keep milk cold in one for 24 hours with enough ice. I'd say a 1/2 gallon milk container full of ice would still be cold the next day even if you let the cooler sit in a car the whole time (at least here in Michigan).

                I've kept milk on the trail for up to four days. I use regular ice packs
                and then buy the individual sized plastic bottles and freeze them. The
                milk thaws slowly, but stays very cold. By using individual sized
                containers, the pasteurization remains intact for the unopened bottles.
                Lately, I've been moving to the UHT milk -- it tastes a bit weird, but is
                fine for coffee in the morning. Throw something over the cooler so it is
                out of the sun.
                Good Luck!

                Paresh,
                When empty they collapse down to the size of a pair of dress slacks folded. These are soft sided so very easy to compress. They will hold a lot of capacity when extended to full size. I've never had one full. It will easily hold several sandwiches, 6-8 bottles of water and ice or freezer packs.

                Click on the Larger Images & More Views link. There the different model photos are labeled. The one with the two pockets is the 30-Can Cooler.

                I believe there are a couple mesh pockets un the inside 'lid' zippered flap portion of the cooler, for utinsels or items you dont want mixing in with the ice and whatever else you have in the cooler..

                I have an older model six pack cooler and does not have any additional
                pockets. However if you look at the 30 can cooler pictures you can see the
                pockets. not sure what he is looking at.
