Solid, well built, watertight. Rod holders are very sturdy. I strap it down and use it as my seat on my paddleboard. Very comfortable and perfect size for me.
DRY BOX IS AS STATED......A DRY BOX. It is not a good cooler, does not keep ice well at all. The latches are cheap but...... it fits well in a kayak and the attached rod holders are nice. Be sure to leash your rods, as the holders are so close together, it is hard to get one out without bumping into another. I think if I had to do over again, I would spend the money for a higher quality product.
Bought this cooler for a Christmas present for my husband & sons. The price was very competitve. They loved the product! The fact that the rods were separate not attached was a nice feature. Good customer service & fast delivery. Will revisit ACK for other outdoor equipment needs!
As a cooler \ drybox, this is an excellent unit especially when you consider the price! PROS: Full wrap around carry strap Large capacity Will keep a 10# bag of ice as ice and cold water for in excess of 7 hours in a hot Florida summer sun Large enough to hold plenty of bottles of Gatorade & water AND two 20+ inch redfish Easy to latch / unlatch behind your back in a kayak Hardware holds up extremely well in a salt water / kayak environment. Removable tray comes in very handy for sandwiches and 'small stuff' CONS Will NOT fit in a 13.5 Propel Slayer with all 4 rod holder tubes installed as advertised by ACK in their Q&A area. You can use two on one side or the other, not both. Latches are a little finicky to operate 'blind' behind you as the latches don't always go 'down' and clear the seating area. Strap is a little thin where you put it on your shoulder to haul it. I don't trust the handle to lift it with all my gear / ice / fish in it. SUMMARY - all in all the best buy I've made regarding usefulness / value / cost. The 15% coupon along with the low price really made this a good buy. I could have really used two more rod holders though. It bothers me each time I load it that I don't have 4 available. I will have to 'settle' and that bothers me. The fact that I relied on the ACK response to a question specific to my make / model of kayak to purchase this cooler and find out it did NOT fit bothers me more than anything else. ACK - if someone asks a year / make / model specific question - find out the facts using your inventory and don't rely on answers that include the words 'should'. You're better than that.
