Cooler brands that sit directly on rails

I'm looking for insight as to which cooler brands/models will sit directly on the rails without the need for cooler mounts or a drop bag to keep it suspended.

Lots of brands will do this just fine. I have a Yeti 110 that would sit on the rails of my frame. However there are other factors at play. For instance if your frame bay isn't deep enough, the cooler will just sit on the floor of the raft and not be supported on the rails. On my boat with 21" tubes it sits on the floor and I have to suspend it, on my boat with 22" tubes it will rest on the rails. If you have an open bay on a Cat boat this wouldn't be an issue.

The Canyon Prospector and Navigator are made to do this specifically with raft depth in mind when the cooler was designed.

+1 for Canyon Coolers.

I have the 105q Canyon Prospector. It sits directly on NRS frame. Perfect size for 14 foot raft.

Canyon prospector as mentioned above. Front and side drain plugs. Floor is even radiused to match floor contour. There really isn’t any better setup for a raft. I’ve owned a lot of high end coolers and canyon fits the bill far better than any other.

I like the look of the Prospector but it didnt say Bear Proof in the specs. I need one that will pass inspections.

Anyone using a Yeti 210? While it does not include a lip for resting on frame rails, it's a big cooler and dimensions look like it might play well with raft/cataraft ID.
