Anyone know if a lil' sucker will stick to NRS side rails? They are not perfectly smooth. Also, will a yeti koozie will fit in it?

No and no. Although Lil Suckers will stick to dry bags, dry boxes, raft tubes, and beer bellies nicely.

Or, you could just drink your damn beer instead of needing a holder. Would you like a nipple too?

I enjoy drinking a beer and because I am not 18 anymore tend not to slam them. I don't consume them all within the fist seconds of opening them.
You do have me wondering though, were you offering me YOUR nipple to suck on? I am a happily married heterosexual but what ever gets your boat down the river, to each his own.

The NRS one is pretty sweet. It's insulated and it keeps the river out. I like that it unclips too. I don't even take my drink out of the insulated pocket to take a sip.

Lil' Suckers are a game changer!

Buddies and I did a day float from Carey Creek to Elkhorn before our full-on lower Main trip late July of this year. I was in an IK goofing around and trying to hit every bit of froth I could find. Of course I had a beer suctioned to my IK's dropstitch floor in between my legs and I had the lid snapped on when I peeled out of a surfing wave and flipped over. I immediately righted the boat, hopped back in, and pointed the bow downstream.

The Lil' Sucker held its suction like a champ. It was exactly where I left it before I flipped. And guess what, I didn't lose a drop of precious river beer. Buddies claimed it was like an infomercial for the Lil' Sucker. Game changer.

Lil' Suckers do stick to Duwain and Tom's River Maps books. I slide the book under the loop strap on the cooler and the lil' sucker sticks right to the book.

I'm a little surprised this simple and obvious version has not been mentioned. I just cut a hole in my plywood sideboard. The beer sits in the hole and rests on the tube. Just locate the hole where the beer goes about halfway down, before contacting the raft tube. Might not work on all setups, but it works on mine. I have 4 - one on each side, back near me, and the same up front, for my passengers. It's nice to have one on each side, cuz usually one or the other is in the shade.
