if you mean the NRS soft cooler with the mesh pouch, I have one that I use for a tackle box, and I am not really attached to it. I live over by you. So trade me something and its yours if that's what you are after.

I presume you are talking about the Bluesky coolers they had for a couple of years? I bought a 150 for my 14' Aire 5 years ago is it was the largest cooler I could find that would fit in the 19" X 40" in dimensions of the cooler bay of my boat/Recretec frame combo. I love it, and bought all of the spare parts from NRS I could once I realized they were closing them out.

I've since discovered that my cooler is really an Engel made for NRS with some more rafting specific features. Baskets and other accessories for similar sized Engels will fit in my cooler. You might look on Engel's website or inquire about the mold, as I've never seen Engel offer the 150 size directly, but there are others in the general vicinity.

If I was buying new today I'd be taking a long hard look at the Canyon Navigator 150.

Good luck!

Hello! Yes, 90Duck! Im talking about those coolers! I really like the dimension of the 125. I need a 125 cooler that sits no higher than 18". Any thoughts?

Sorry, I don't have any leads on old ones for you. On the plus side, there are now a lot more choices in the roto-molded cooler market than there were 5 years ago. I've had Yetis, the NRS(Engel), Canyon, and Grizzly. I really think they are all pretty much the same in terms of ice retention, with any real difference made up by good cooler management practices. I'd recommend researching all of the brands you can find until you find the best dimensional fit for your cooler bay space. That's how I arrived at the NRS for me. I don't know if they have the size you are after, but I've seen a few of the Canyon Prospectors and Navigators on retail display and have been impressed. I like that they are specifically designed with rafting in mind.

Good luck!

My old school Canyon/Galaxy 125 is 18.5"h.

Newer rotomold coolers are 1.2-2" taller than the old ones because of the doo-dads they cast into the lid, ridges, dimples, latches, etc, plus the feet tend to be taller.

Yeah, I started measuring coolers assuming I'd have to run a 105qt Engel to fit in my dory build....then realized my existing cooler is acceptably short!

What are you trying to fit it in?


Look at Engels; I understand they're the shortest of the 105qt class, assuming they'd be similarly short in the 125-130qt class.

Sorry that make sense, I had some UltraCool roto coolers that were that size.
