The Native Fish Bag Cooler is lined with a thermally reflective and tear resistant fabric made to withstand damage from fish fins. While it is the perfect size for the Ultimate 14.5 Solo bow, it can be used with any boat and even has nylon D-rings along the bottom that allow it to be lashed to the deck of a sit-inside kayak. The bungee cord on the top of the bag allow you to secure a tackle box or other gear. This sturdy fish bag is made of urethane coated nylon and is waterproof.

I have used this Native Fish Bag Cooler for 6 months. During the winter months the bag performs great, it will keep all the ice for two days. However when the temperatures get above 85 degrees this bag is horrible. Went fishing when the temperature was 94 degrees, I had (2) two litters bottles, (2) 32oz bottles, and (5) 20oz bottles of frozen ice in the bag plus the drinks I planned on consuming where placed in the refrigerator the night before in order to try and help the ice to last longer. Put all the ice bottles and drinks in the bag at 4am and by 12:30pm all the ice was melted. With this bag having 3.25 square feet of surface area, the sun starts warming the bag like an oven. I might try to bake my fish in it next time I go fishing.
Yes the sun gets to the ice very fast with the current color, maybe the should make it white, like most coolers. Also, I load it up with ice packs bout 5AM and fish 10AM or so, in the Rarritan/NY Bay in the summer and there is plenty of solid ice packs left. The trick for me was I inserted the bag into a white pillow cover, this seemed to slow down the process. Use it for stripers and fluke mostly. Great Item!
I made a punture proof removable liner that can be cleaned to protect and prevent fish smell.
