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.

            The mid-size cooler is easy and comfortable to carry. Quality of construction is excellent. I have not rigorously tested thermal efficiency, so other reviews will be more helpful in that regard. If this line had not been discontinued, I would recommend that NRS produce a cooler between their medium and large, in the 24 can size, similar to those offered by a number of other competing brands. Perhaps they are planning to introduce a updated line of coolers in the future. That would be good news.

              This cooler works great, keeps things cold all day ( summer heat). We use them in our open kayaks so they sit in water at the bottom of our kayaks (warm saltwater) and have no shade and they still work great. So much so we got another one. Being soft sided they conform to just about any space we have, where a hard sided cooler would not fit. Love these coolers.

                I need a soft cooler to fit through the round 9" hatch on my Hobie Mirage Revolution kayak. Once through the hatch there is plenty of room. What can you recommend. Will the above model work?

                  I use the large size as a day cooler when rafting and it works great.  I think it would be too large for your 9" hatch though.  The six pack size should fit with no problem and the small should fit as long as you don't try to fill it too full.  The soft coolers are definitely flexible which makes them a great choice where a plastic cooler won't fit.  I have been pleased with the durability of my large soft cooler and we also use it for long road trips.

                  Joe, the dimensions of the different sizes are there in the Specs tab. Remember, since it's a soft cooler it can "scrunch" through an opening that a hard-sided cooler can't.

                  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 -

                  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 can't say exactly how long a gallon of milk will stay cold, but it's keep
                  other food like lunch meat and eggs good for three day weekend trips. I
                  just use the gel filled freezer packs​ you might ship seafood with. I put
                  one on each side and one in the top pocket. Then like I said... it's good
                  for days.

                  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!

                Q:

                Hi,

                I am looking for a small cooler for storing water bottles and sandwiches. I am going on vacation soon.

                Does your cooler fold so that it doesn't take up much space in a luggage?

                Thanks

                  Yes, Paresh. The cooler can fold and withstand being in a compacted position for a length of time.

                  Absolutely! I've taken it on tips stuffed into other luggage. Compresses
                  down to next to nothing and is ready to go when you arrive. It's really not
                  "designed" to fold up, but it smooshes down just fine. Great little
                  soft-sided cooler for a 6-pack with ice or lunch and drinks. Carried this
                  to work with veggie juices and an ice pack for years.

                  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.
