So obviously I was comparing this to similar coolers on the market and I think I made the right choice. The Orca 26 just seemed cooler that the other comparable coolers. No other comparable cooler has the super handy mesh pouch attached so you can hold your stuff without putting it inside the cooler. Nobody needs cold car keys. Why would anyone put their car keys in the cooler? Because their fancy $300 cooler doesn’t even have an awesome mesh pouch to hold said car keys outside the cooler. that’s why. Onto cooler performance. If you put some cold beer, or water, or Gatorade, or whatever you’re thirsty for in this cooler with some ice, and you go to retrieve it later… you’re gonna have an ice cold beer, or water, or Gatorade, or whatever you’re thirsty for in your hand. You can put food in it too, if that’s what you’re into. Hot dogs, hamburgers, cheese, coleslaw, tater salad, you get it. You can sit on this cooler at the campsite also. It’s like a chair that keeps your drinks and food cold, and your keys at room temperature on the outside. Apparently it’s bear-proof too but I’ll fist fight a bear before I let him steal my brand new cooler.
