THE SITUATION: Getting your ice cold food and drinks, or fresh bait, from the truck to the boat ramp can be an issue, especially if you need a larger capacity cooler.
A SOLUTION: Canyon Coolers has come out with its new Mule cooler. Made with two wheels and a telescoping metal handle, it makes getting it to and fro easy. A 30-quart cube, the Mule is the most insulated cooler of its size — with 3 inches of pressure injected foam in all six walls — according to the company. The cooler is designed to be ultrapackable, with all of its key features recessed into the cooler itself.
THE DETAILS: The cooler includes a built-in bottle opener and a bungee net top to keep loose items close at hand. The rugged 6-inch plastic wheels are recessed into the cooler to save space. Eight tie-down points ensure you won’t lose the cooler off the back of your boat or 4x4. It also has two built-in cup holders.
PRICE: While the coolers are expected to come out this fall, a suggested retail price has not been set.
