I'm more interested in the http://canyoninflatables.com/ Teaser pic that they have on their site.

It looks yeti like but advertised as made in USA. But no pricing or sizing published. anyone get their hands on one of theirs?

I'm tired of reading about other vendors (frontierplay) jumping on the outsourced yeti bandwagon offering "just as good" coolers made in sweatshops in SE Asia where nobody has the money, the time, or clean water to enjoy our hobby.

I own one of the canyon inflatables dryboxes and its decent.

I now have two. A 105 and the new 50 for weekends. Both are stout with thick walls. The 105 holds ice longer than my Marine Igloo 95 and I like having more room in the cooler. What I like about Canyon Coolers is that they carry sizes and shapes that no one else does for a price I can afford. I did have a wonky lid issue on the 105, but Jason was awesome to work it out with me. I'm a happy customer.

NRS has a flip seat bracket now.
It's pretty hokey/NRS-ish compared to AAA or DRE. (they found another place to use a big, cast NRS LoPro)

Yeah if there is no gap between your drybox and frame (read: nrs drybox mounts) it gives you about 40 degrees of tilt before the lowpro starts to bang/dig into the drybox. If you flip the seat up quickly you have just dented your drybox.

I havent done the math but with the angles involved, it looks like you have to loosen the lowpro and slide it completely out of the way if you want the space to pull your drybox off the frame. One problem, the drybox hangers prevent this

Sharp corners on the wood side rails concern me- anybody ever had an issue with impacting those in heavy water?

The tube under your knees is a hinge, the LoPro remains fixed. They reinvented the wheel and are pretty excited because its almost round!

And then the upright remains in the way, to skewer your innards when you stumble and collapse getting to the back?
