I have to admit, I have a love hate relationship with this cooler. It’s the only one we make I feel this way about. The Story: I designed it in tandem with an Australian client and like some of our other Outfitters it borrows alot from the Land Down Under.
In Australia, it is common to see simple, light-weight little coolers at the beach. They call them ‘Beer Boxes’. That was the inspiration for this cooler. This Outfitter 22 is just under 10# which is best in class for a light weight rotomolded cooler.
This thing is so simple it doesn’t even have a drain plug. For that reason I prefer using ice packs or frozen water bottles when I pack it. Its' light weight simplicity, and smaller size also mean it’s super handy for a road trip, a quick trip to the lake, or taking some drinks to a friend’s house.
Do I kinda wish it kept ice one more day or had the bells and whistles our newer coolers have? Yes - but again it is light and small, and for that reason I have to admit it, this is the cooler I use the MOST.
