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.
I give this product a rating of good. The hinges are metal and secure the lid well, but are very aggravating to use. A bungee stretch type would be better. Also the hinges are cheap cheap plastic. I am scared to just toss the lid open. The weight of the lid alone is enough to break them. As a cooler and dry box it is just fine. It holds ice all day on the water. The rod holders are nice and work well. It is worth the purchase price, but I would rate it better if The lid was engineered a little better. If the lids fail on the two I bought I will not buy again. So far so good in three day trips on the water.
Excellent product for the price. Purchased this to use mainly as a dry box storage for all the small stuff I carry while canoe and SUP fishing, it also doubles as a seat and standing platform on the SUP. Bought the version with 4 rod holders but mag change out 2 rod holders for other accessory options like a paddle or push pole holder. The stainless latches are great and the seal is water-proof, top carry handle is good, hinges are plastic and the verdict is still out on them. The carry strap I don;t find very useful, wish it had come with 2 webbed straps and buckles to secure it down. The box is easy enough to take apart and add other adapters, Scotty or similar, with bolt heads hidden in the lining and not protruding thru the inside of the box.
