Orca Coolers Review 26 QT, 58 QT and Pink Cooler

OrcaCoolersIn many of our video ice tests and reviews you’ll see that the Orca has regularly been THE cooler to beat. Although many coolers claim to be the best, the truth is most fall short in performance when tested. This is where Orca Coolers stand out above the rest. If you’ve never heard of an Orca Cooler, you’re likely not alone. However, after conducting numerous cooler challenges and watching Orca dominate the competition, we’re convinced everyone needs to know about the Orca line of coolers.

Orca Cooler Performance- Our Five Day Ice Challenge Results

Orca 58 Q Drained After Five Day Ice Challenge

Orca 58 Q Drained After Five Day Ice Challenge

In our Five Day Ice Challenge, where we matched up all the high end roto molded coolers such as Yeti Coolers, Pelican, Grizzly, Igloo, and more, the Orca 58 Q cooler absolutely blew the competition away. Three times a day we shifted the six beverages around to mimic actual use and all coolers were pre-chilled for 24 hours prior to the test. After five days, the Orca had plenty of ice to go a few more days. The orca was by far the most impressive cooler in our Five Day Ice Challenge. We feel confident in saying the Orca can go 5-7 days of use with ease. Since then, we have put the Orca through a multitude of tests, all of which resulted in top performances.

About Orca Coolers

Orca coolers are brought to you by a company whose very name stands for outdoor adventures. Orca is short for,The Outdoor Recreation Company of America.” This cooler was designed by two men who themselves are active outdoorsmen whom, like you, were tired of wasting their hard-earned money on a cooler that could not keep up with their active lifestyle in the great outdoors. As an added bonus, each time someone purchases a cooler, a portion of the profits will be donated to one of several charities. This includes, breast cancer research, women’s outdoor groups, conservation groups, and wounded warrior programs. Each cooler is made in the USA with only high quality American made components.

Green Orca Cooler ReviewThere are a variety of sizes available from as small as 20 quarts to the very large 140 quart cooler. These coolers are available in a variety of colors as well, so that you can tell yours apart from all others. Collegiate color schemes and patterns are even available!

Orca coolers are also guaranteed for life to be bear proof and virtually indestructible. They are also able to withstand extreme temperatures and still keep ice and contents inside cold. The Orca really does offer it all.

UPDATE: In an updated cooler challenge, The Ultimate Ice Challenge, we tested the same coolers (plus many more) but in the middle of summer. Afternoon temps were well into the 90°’s and lid temperatures were hitting 100°+. So how did Orca perform? Just as we expected, the Orca 58 came out on top again! In fact, in this test we tested the coolers until they ran completely out of ice and Orca went 7 FULL DAYS. It is also worth noting that the construction of the Orca seems to be more robust when compared to many other counterparts. Many of out readers will also appreciate the fact that Orca Coolers are Made In USA.

Orca Cooler Reviews

Below are short reviews of the most popular Orca cooler sizes. Each size can serve a its own unique purposes. We even tested a 40Q vs a 58Qt Orca and the larger size held ice much longer. We have seen this across other manufacturers as well. Orca coolers come in a huge variety of colors. We receive a ton of emails from people asking how much cooler color affect ice retention times. In our testing the difference between a tan cooler vs a white cooler has been negligible. Needless to say, you should pick the cooler color you really want as ice retention times should not be compromised by color alone.

Collegiate Color Schemes

When you look at the 20qt Orca cooler, one of the first things you will notice is the unique design. There is no part of this cooler that resembles other coolers of its kind. It has flex grip handles to make carrying it easy on your hands and a cargo net on the backside provides for added storage. The lid has a gasket seal to ensure that all of your cold items stay cold in the cooler for maximum ice retention. It weighs 17 pounds when empty hold ice cold for days. The 20qt is available in a bunch of colors and color schemes (even collegiate colors). See Color Schemes Here⇒

Orca 58Qt Cooler

-The Cooler To Beat-

Sea Foam Green 58QtThis is the exact cooler we have named “the cooler to beat.” The 58qt cooler is larger and therefore heavier than the smaller of its kind. The total weight of it when empty is 34 pounds. Its dimensions are 36x21x20 inches. However, you should not let this stop you from considering it. You can carry it easily, alone or with help from a friend thanks to the extendable flex grip handles. It has an easy flow drain spout and the standard lifetime warranty that people expect from Orca coolers. This is the cooler we tested in many of our cooler challenges, and again, it always performed among the best. This is also available in a variety of colors. See 58Qt Color Schemes⇒

For anyone who does not like tan or pink, here is the white option. It has all features that other Orca coolers have including the cargo net attachment for added storage. The only difference is a cooler that is brightly white and easy to keep clean. It has the ability to be locked up via holes in the corners of the cooler . This combined with the sealed lid can keep your food and drinks cold for a longer amount of time than most people would expect; or 7-10 days in our experimenting!
