Although many might not yet have heard of Cordova Coolers, many have heard of the TV Show Deadliest Catch. Cordova coolers was founded by former captain of the Seabrooke seen on Deadliest Catch. Needless to say, they know a thing or two about keeping a catch cold! Most importantly though, Cordova coolers are USA MADE. What we love most about Cordova though is the aggressive looking design. This is one of the best looking coolers we have tested yet. (VIDEO Review Embedded Below)

Features of a Cordova Coolers Cooler
This cooler has among the strongest handles available. They are made of pure aluminum, which are attached to the cooler’s sidewalls. The handholds are wrapped in a rubberized padding to provide for comfort when carrying even a full load.
Another nice billet design on this cooler is the drain plugs. This plug/cap stands out on the side of the cooler and is quite the welcomed change from the standard plastic caps.
Cordova cooler uses T-locks to ensure a tightly closed lid. This feature is the same type of latch that many other, high end coolers have, however the latches are attached to the base of the cooler as opposed to the lid. The oversized latches coupled with a commercial grade gasket ensures an air tight lid seal.
A bottle opener located in the billet aluminum handle is a nice feature that many other coolers do not include. With more and more people enjoying craft beer nowadays, this is becoming a necessary cooler accessory.
The cooler’s design is stylish enough to compete with almost any other cooler out there. A foam additive molded into the cooler ensures that it will not warp when exposed to sun over long periods of time. Although not many, some roto molded coolers with warp in the sun, and we have seen it in our Ice Challenges. The Cordova provides ice retention ability comparable to that of other coolers, including Yeti and Pelican, yet it is lighter.
The largest Cordova cooler has outer dimensions of 25 7/8 x 14 1/4” x 15 1/4. Inner dimensions are 8 7/8” x 18” x 10 1/8”. As originally stated, a nice added bonus is the fact that these coolers are made in the USA and comeswith a full Lifetime Warranty. Many other high end, high dollar coolers are only warrantied for a couple years.

Benefits of Owning Cordova Coolers
One of the biggest reasons people love this cooler is that they are made in USA and backed by a warranty that beats almost all other coolers available. Many like that it comes with a divider so that one side can be used for drinks and the other side for snacks. All Cordova coolers rest nicely in the back of a pickup truck or on a boat and never slide around thanks to the high quality rubber feet.
