Can anyone recommend a cooler that works and fits in a sea kayak hatch--6-pack+ size? I got a Nissan thermos this winter and it keeps my boiling tea hot for hours. Works better than any I have had. I am thinking there must be big differences in coolers also. Any advice?

I've got one of the yellow NRS coolers - the small one is pretty big, but will fit in an oval hatch. I see they have a 6 pack cooler now.

definitely the best one i have had. Get the ice pack with it and it works great.

Been using one 2 years now, wish I had found it sooner. Bonus is it doesn't sweat and leak like most soft coolers, and ice will last for days if needed. WW

We have previously used a cheap soft cooler while canoe camping and would get 3+ full days of cooling. This year we bought the NRS large cooler and will try it out next month. It is a lot better in overall quality and thickness of insulation. They do make smaller sizes that I would take a look at to see if they will fit. The one we bought cost under $50. Nicely made coolers IMHO.
I asked this same question a few months|

ago, and rather than force you to look in the archives, I'll tell you that the Polar Bear was the suggestion, and it was a good choice.

Another vote for the NRS soft coolers. Worth the investment.

Bass Pro Shops makes a soft side cooler (the Ketch cooler) with removable liner that straps to the deck of a kayak. Their is also a company (Bell Canoe Works)that make soft side round coolers meant to fit in canoe barrels.
