I'm looking to maximize the space on my 13 ft nrs otter. I'm looking for a cooler to fit a 36" width between the tubes. currently own a 74 qt. I Have been searching all over.
Thanks

Look at the Techniice 90 qt narrower and taller. All the techniice coolers are super stout and hold ice better than anything else. More money then the RTiC, about the same as the canyon.

Cooler zone is the best website I have found for cooler comparison data. Their testing is very consistent and they have all the specs.

Blue Coolers are worth a look

Hey there, I run a Yeti and a newly acquired Blue cooler. I have been super impressed with it's performance. I rolled the dice on a cheaper cooler but this thing is legit. Better ice retention than my yeti so far.

I own Yeti and Bison. I am on the Bison Prostaff . Bison makes a great cooler and are made in America. Most coolers are measured by total volume (Yeti) and not interior volume. A 75qt bison would be the equivalent to a 90qt Yeti.

So, I’ve been looking at the Bison Cooler website. I’m intrigued, but I am wondering if the patches are too low for sitting in the frame. Is it easy to open/close the latches when it’s sitting loaded onto the raft?

Thanks.

I do not see it being a problem. I like the latches. If you cant swivel them open you can just pull down on them and it will open like your typical Yeti

If you want me to measure mine I can. Let me know. I think I have the the 50 and 125 with me right now.

Per NRS' website, the Otter 13 is 37" between the tubes.

I'd look hard at the Canyon Prospector 103, it's nicely optimized for raft use. (don't have one, but a friend does)

The Prospector would be a snug fit, or a perfect fit depending on your preference.

103 Quarts/ 97 Liters
39.5 lbs empty
External at Top: (WxHxL): 21.25"x18.5"x37.5"
External at Base: (WxL): 17.98"x 36.98"

thanks for the responses. seems as the coolers may be too tall for my raft. I'm unsure how tall you want to be before it becomes top-heavy. How far above a tube is too tall?

The Canyon Prospector is a great cooler and is built for raft frames. If it'll fit, that would be my choice.

The weight of your body above the frame is FAR more significant than 30% of the cooler sticking up above the frame.

HIGH SIDE!
