If there's one item that does it all it's the NRS Saddle Bag- it's a cooler, a thwart bag, a rod holder, and a drink holder.
  • The Saddle Bag has a big front pocket to hold anything you need close by.
  • The 18 oz PVC shell is ready and willing to accept the abuse of your rough and tumble adventures.
  • Two heavy duty straps let you hang the saddle bag from a frame bar and a longer strap secures the bottom through drain holes or around a tube.
  • Rod holding loops on top of the cooler are way safer than leaning your fly rod against the boat.
  • The urethane liner and a rigid bottom tray come out for easy cleaning.
  • The 32 quart capacity is ideal for day trips.

      Comments about NRS Saddle Bag Cooler:

      Took the newly purchased cooler on a six day canoe trip. The goal for the cooler was to keep the cheese and beer cold or at least cool. The small amount of solid ice we kept in there lasted 3 days in daytime temps in the 70's but since the ice was bagged the melted ice kept the items cold for another day. After that we filled the cooler with cool lake water. Cooler is solid and well constructed with multiple straps to carry or strap it to the boat in various ways.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Fast delivery as always with NRS. Great people to interact with questions.

        Comments about NRS Saddle Bag Cooler:

        Really have enjoyed using the cooler since 2009. Liner has sprung a leak so just ordered a new one - so easy to install! Much easier to use that a hard cooler, more forgiving, and easy for one person to carry. Would buy another just like it!

        Comments about NRS Saddle Bag Cooler:

        It functions but we were disappointed in how quickly ice melted and things warmed up. Maybe relative to soft coolers it does fine.

        • Held up quite well
        • Survived a Crystal flip

            Comments about NRS Saddle Bag Cooler:

            Openned and closed this cooler(zipper closure)at least 24 times a day for three weeks. It took lots of abuse in the cockpit and on the beach. Easier on the legs than a hard day cooler. Insulated quite well. Instead of drag bag just fill with river water. No beverage lose!!! Even upside down for a mile and a half!

              Q:

              Is the front pocket waterproof?

                A:

                The front pocket is made out of the same material as the rest of the
                bag, and is therefore waterproof, and it has a zipper. When you are on
                the river, a little water can get in there via the zipper, though not much.

                A:

                Hello,
                The front pocket has a stout zipper but has no obvious seal to keep water
                from entering there. I don't think that the pocket will accumulate water
                from splashing or intermittent wetting, but I do think if you submerged it,
                water will enter there.
                I'd say use the pocket for storage only and keep stuff in zip lock bags or
                small dry bags that will fit the pocket if you must keep them dry. That
                could add a little buoyancy too.
                Generally, this is a good cooler, and I am satisfied with my purchase. It
                is not the latest-greatest and I do not expect it to keep stuff frozen for
                days. I am positive about it. It has survived trips on the back of my
                motorcycle, keeping things cool even in hot weather for the trip. It
                doesn't work as an extra camp seat as the hard side types do.
                I hope this helps, sorry for the delay in a response. If you have more
                questions I can try to help.

                Very much not! But I love this cooler. I strap it into my ducky and I've got lunch and drink all day. Plenty of loops to strap dry bags to. The pocket itself fits cam straps waterproof phones and a small speaker well enough.

                No. Front pocket is not waterproof. But you can get a pelican or otter box just the right size and make it waterproof.

                Yes it's very malleable. We jam ours in our drop bag or dry box when not in
                use occasionally.

                ?I have had mine for about a year. It can be crushed, throw overboard, you name it... As long as it is filled with soft material, it will take just about any shape.

                Soft enough, yes, as long as the cooler is empty and the hole is not too small.

                Stuart, it's soft sided, so it will scrunch down. Remember, at full size it's 18"L x 11"W x 12"H, with foam insulation, so it'll still be bulky.

              So, this cooler has its own strap to wrap around a thwart or would I have to purchase one or two cam straps to do this?

                A:

                Brent, there are three straps, with side-release buckles, attached to the back of the cooler. Two are 40" in length, for wrapping around a frame member or thwart, depending on the thwart diameter. The other strap, mounted at the bottom of the cooler, is 48" in length and is handy for anchoring the cooler through the floor drain holes.

              Q:

              This is a great bag that has served us well as day drift fishers for years, however the liner seems to have been cut, is there a way to repair or replace just the liner. Seems like a waste to have to trash it.

                A:

                The 11" measurement is the width of the main bag. The pocket and drink holder extend out another 3.5". There are D-rings on the ends of the bag to which you can anchor a shoulder strap.
