From a very popular kayak manufacturer, we now have a cooler that is designed to fit the most active outdoor lifestyle. It is the Orion Coolers brand cooler and it is gaining rapid popularity. To see what it can do for your active lifestyle, simply read our Orion Coolers by Jackson Kayaks review.
Orion Coolers Features
Standard features of Orion Coolers include things such as 6 tie down points on each cooler and four aluminum bottle openers, one on each corner of the cooler. This means that bottle openers are always available, no matter where you tie it down. All of the tie down areas means that you also never have to worry about it slipping away from you. Not even when you are using it as a standing pad or casting platform.
The Orion line of coolers is also bear resistant and lockable, which is great on camping trips. The camming latches are low profile. This is a feature that can make it even harder for wild animals to get into it.
The carrying handles for this rugged rotomolded cooler are motorcycle grips. This means that they are made of ropes, but the rope is covered by a rubbery handhold to ensure your comfort.
The Jackson kayak cooler has earned the title of being Best-in-Class when compared to all other coolers that provide 2” or more insulation. That is quite a feat for a new cooler on today’s market and as an added bonus, it is made in the USA.
The Orion 65 weighs only 39 pounds and the smallest Orion cooler, the 25 weighs in at 21.5 pounds. This means that all coolers should be easy to carry along on an outing.
If at any time the hinges fail you, there is a lifetime warranty on them. Any other issues that may come up with your new cooler are also covered with a 5-year warranty.
It has an easy, but reliable drain plug included and there are YakAttrack Tracks with RAM Integration and a very functional tray system on every cooler that is created by Jackson. This means that is one of the best premium coolers available, simply because no other cooler can give you so many options. You can even add in a sectional divider that doubles as a cutting board if you want just a little more from your new camo cooler.
What Makes Jackson Kayaks & Orion Coolers Great?
One of the most interesting things about these coolers is their real world sizing. If it says that are purchasing an Orion 65 or an Orion 25, then that is exactly what you will get. Perhaps that is why everyone loves their variety when it comes to sizes. You can choose a 25qt cooler, a 35qt, a 45qt, a 55qt, as well as a 65 and 85-quart cooler. This ensures that no matter what outdoor activities you plan to enjoy, there is a “right” size for your needs. There are also a variety of colors for you to choose from. Most all of them are camouflage, but you can choose from a sky blue and white camo, Bluefin, blaze orange, forest, jungle, or a light green Dorado. These color choices ensure that your cooler looks almost as cool as you when you are out on your boat or enjoying the great outdoors on your local beach.
