The Native Fish Bag Cooler is lined with a thermally reflective and tear resistant fabric made to withstand damage from fish fins. Keep your equipment or your catch safe and secure in this triangular cooler and gear bag. D-rings allow the bag to be securely fastened to the deck or interior of the boat and the bungees allow additional lightweight gear to be stowed on top.

I fixed this to my Hobie Revo13 and it works great. Instead of having to have a bulky, heavy cooler behind me, I have this nice bag mounted in the front. Kept the fish nice and fresh for the duration of the fishing session and ride home. Would definitely recommend.
The idea and design is good. The execution is not as good. My neighbor has one that is less than a year old and the lining is shredded. But the full zipper is much easier to use than the front opening bags with fish that have big spines like snapper and sheepshead. I bought it with the intent to make modifications. The lining is not durable and I had a 1 1/2 inch tear in the upper lining on the first use. The exterior should be white or reflective to minimize heat and keep ice longer. I am modifying mine with corrugated plastic sign material on top and bottom inside to minimize tearing. I'm putting a reflective windshield sun shade that I got from dollar tree on top to reflect light. With modifications I think it will keep ice better and extend the life of the product.
The quality of the work is very nice, but the design is lacking. None of the D rings on the sides line up and the middle two are an inch and a half out of line. The straps that are sewn across the top, which serve no real function, should have been sewn on the bottom between the D rings so all the load isn't placed on the seams, which will be prone to ripping apart. For the price I would expect more durability.
Fits the rear deck of my 12' Eagle Talon SOT. Read the reviews, so I lined the bottom and sides with sytrofoam board to help preserve the ice and the lining. Laid a white towel over the bag before strapping it down. Ice held up nicely on a 90 degree day. We'll see about the fish - struck out on day one. Native may want to take the comments on this board to heart regarding durability. Customers really shouldn't need to do this much engineering, considering what we paid.
