Canyon Coolers

I've taken a strong look at most of those coolers listed. I benchmarked off the Yeti to find something cheaper and comparable. I went with Canyon Coolers-Hands down. It's $50-$75 cheaper and just as good ice retention. It doesn't have all the flashy labels and polish but it is bomber. I use the 22Qt Outfitter for my day cooler and a 75Qt Outfitter for 4-5 day trips. It's out of Flagstaff and the owner is a boater.

I just got a Blackrock cooler 90l for my 14' set up. I will let folks know how it does. looks great and functional. Wondering if I should have gone for the 150l, Doesn't fill my frame space like I wanted but it's close enough as long as it holds ice!
I will try and post up some pics when I get back to the house tonight.

I looked at a lot of coolers two years ago, trying to maximize cooler space on my NRS cat frame. I had 34 inches between the tubes to work with. Many companies had sizes in the 75-95 Qt. range, but then jumped up to the 120+ range with nothing in between that would fit my frame. A few had in-between sizes, but the dimensions and/or price didn't work for me. Finally I found the Canyon Cooler Sailor model, 105 Qt. and it's a perfect fit. 34 long X 18 wide X 16 tall if I remember right, give or take. $269 when I bought it, $299 now. Sturdy and thick roto-molded, and holds ice a lot longer than my old Marine Igloo 95 Qt. I wish more companies would make the in-between size, 100-110 Qt. would be great.

love my canyon cooler! just got off Deso last week (trip #2 this year) and I had ice on day 8 in the the fun Utah sun! I wasnt being a cooler nazi either, in and out of it for beers, snacks, etc. as Kathy pointed out 1/2 the price of a yetti. We had a yetti on the trip (roady 22) that held ice for 6 days! impressive for that small of a cooler.

Last weekend we watched my canyon cooler roll down a rocky embankment for about 50 ft. I won't get into why but it ended up in fine shape. That is one badass cooler.

Depending on what Canyon Cooler model you get, I would suggest having them change the latches to the butterfly dry box style latches. I did that on my smaller Canyon cooler, and it seals super tight and fits better on the cross bars of the raft. In May, I took my little 12 ft. raft on a 7 day Deso trip, and used the small 50 Qt. cooler. I had ice at the end of the trip. I was worried about how a small cooler would do on a 7 day trip. No problem.

Most of these roto-molded coolers look sturdy and well made. For me the decision comes down to size and price. Having lots of size options at a decent price is key whatever brand it is. The Canyon Sailor was exactly the size I needed at a decent price.

Does anyone have any experience with the SCC coolers. Getting info on them is very difficult, ie demensions, capacity, weight, prices, etc. I can't even seem to find a good source for purchasing them. They are chinese, but that is about all I can find on them.
