Thanks Chip -

Wait till you see the tractor seat (bolt on) platform I built to strap on top of the cooler of my rented boat! There's no end to the rigging fun with this darn sport! I'll post pictures after the trip.

Counting down - 3 days to Flag, 4 to Lee's, 5 to LAUNCH!

These guys are shipping me a few of them, 2 day delivery to Flagstaff. so it looks like I'll have them on the Grand. Whoopee! Thanks again Tripp, I sure am glad you didn't post any later than you did.

1. Keep beverage cold
A simple foam koozie is usually enough, but foam can stick to the cans a bit making removing the can harder and tearing the foam. Neoprene dosen't insulate quite as well, but it is easier to remove the can.
Thermos makes a vacuum lined koozie that is supposed to be great for 105║ days.

2. Keep beverage easily accessible
There seem to be 2 main options - the beer necklace or a frame mounted holder.

The beer necklace has the advantage of going anywhere you do, so it goes into camp, to concerts, and on side hikes if you want it to - you can also use it paddle boating or on a friends raft. Any koozie can be converted to a necklace with duck tape and some webbing. Or you can buy pre-made:

The frame mount means not having a rope tied around your neck while boating.

3. Keep beverage separate from river water
There is a company that makes tops for 12 oz cans, cheap and probably effective:
Soda Can Lid - Pop Can Lid
But it is kinda like a sippy cup, so it might not win any cool points. On the plus side there is a lanyard hole so it will attach to the necklace, then you can take it on and off and not lose it while drinking.
On the cooler side is the BottleIt - converts cans into bottles:
Not sure about how much beer ends up on top of the can with this - or if it really matters, but dirty can lids will probably contaminate your beer.

I think my favorite so far is the neoprene koozie necklace with the sippy cup lid - whats your favorite?
Reply: Try, my son in law uses. Not much on isulation but great on keeping beer where you want it and without river water getting inside.
