That would be me. The Black Rock looks great, but the larger sizes needed for multi-day trips won't fit my cat frame. Thus, I've got a 105 qt. Yeti up front and a 125 qt. Galaxy aft. I wish you good luck in your business venture.

And you are right about the walk-in freezer. That will add days to any cooler, but especially the high-end ones.

We do our best to keep the coolers covered with a wet towel and/or a paco-pad style sleeping pad over the top. The pad adds another layer of insulation, and also makes it nicer for passengers.

One of rivets holding the nubs to the cooler broke off on the first trip, and it is pretty clear that the others will follow suit pretty quickly. A through-bolt of some sort looks like it would solve the problem, but this is a weekness in the current design that needs to be addressed. Otherwise, this looks like a good product and a good value. The hinges are absolutely bomber.
I have a down under cooler with the same latches. i replaced the rivets on the nub with bolts now it works great

I am personally and carefully inspecting all latches prior to shipping to avoid any new latch issues. Being a new company our reputation is important and we strive to provide outstanding customer service. We do stand behind our coolers and respond to any concerns. Thanks for supporting Black Rock Coolers.

The Original Posted by 90Duck was from April and we have had contact with the owner of the cooler.
