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 a lot 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.
