The CreekKooler is a unique cooler that is perfectly suited for a day on the water. It has a 30 Qt capacity, which holds up to 30 cans of beer and 20 lbs of ice, and may also be used as dry storage. Features include 4 cup holders on the deck, blow molded construction, and foamed insulation. The CreekKooler also has a flag holder and reinforced tow points on both ends.

So far, so good! Going kayak camping in 2 weeks, so figured this would be a great option to offload some substantial weight from my kayak to this tow-behind CreekKooler (or, as we've christened it, "Baby Kayak Junior." We took it out for a test spin in a large local lake having added about 25lbs. of cans and weights. The weight was a bit too centered under the hatch, and it listed slightly to port, and when I paddled for speed, the CreekKooler did flip. Two good lessons learned: 1) distribute your weight evenly and 2) the CreekKooler remains buoyant even upside down. We were able to turn it upright, open the hatch and shift things around without too much trouble (while on the water), and we continued testing. The lake was glassy smooth, so I haven't experienced towing "Baby Kayak Junior" in choppy waters, but I suspect we will be fine on our trip providing we practice good weight distribution. Looking forward to towing ice, cans, and dinner fixings in upstate NJ in two weeks!
I took the cooler on a river in Alaska for a 3 day float trip. It tracks great behind my kayak, and works best when loaded. The ice only stayed for about 1 1/2 days, so that's not so great. I took lots of frozen bottles of water, bagged and loose ice. It was consistently in the 60's during the day and overcast. At night it was in the 50s. It needs to be better insulated! Overall, I'm giving it a 4. I'm keeping my food in someone else's cooler this weekend for a 4 day float and will use this for drinks.
