  • NRS Big Sky 65 Quart Cooler

    Q:

    I have just used my new cooler for the first time, and was impressed with all but one aspect. I had a perpetual, small leak from the drain plug no matter how tightly or featherlite I adjusted the screwplug. Am I doing something wrong, or overlooking something?

      I have the same problem with both of my coolers and it is VERY frustrating!

      A:

      Cliff, it should seal. If you haven't, check the plug and cooler surface to see if there's an irregularity that's preventing a good seal. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, if you're still having problems.

  • NRS Big Sky 65 Quart Cooler

    Q:

    Does anyone know if the inside baskets from a yeti cooler will work with these? They appear to be almost exactly the same cooler (but NRS is cheaper, has better latches, and works better with a raft frame because of the latches--yay NRS!). But I really like the yeti baskets to separate stuff like eggs, veggies, and other fragile food items that could get crushed.

      Thanks for the reply! I bought one of the 65 qt Yeti baskets and the fit is perfect! These are cheaper and much higher quality than the cheesy looking velcro-in NRS cooler shelves. They also slide back and forth for easier access to the beer at the bottom. I highly recommend both the NRS cooler and the Yeti basket for rafting.

      A:

      Can't help you with the basket dims, but it's 12 5/16" between the walls of the Big Sky 65, above the inside lip. The lips are about 5/16" in depth. Hope that helps!

    Do you have cushions for your coolers ?

      A:

      We haven't designed cushions for these coolers. Consider adding Ethafoam to the top for cushioning and additional insulation.

Comments about NRS Big Sky 65 Quart Cooler:

Bought two of these because I was tired of other coolers that did not hold the temperature. These keep the ice well. They are too heavy for kayak camping but great for many other applications. Have used them twice and will be using them up at Lake Tahoe this weekend and then for two eight day trips this summer.
