Top 5 Hunting Coolers

When going on a backcountry hunt its important to bring a great cooler, not only for bringing food on the way down but bringing out meat on the way back home. The first thing you want to consider is the capacity of the cooler, the more meat you plan on bringing back the larger the cooler you should consider. The length of time you need to keep your meat cool should also determine the quality of cooler you get. If this list doesn't have a cooler that fits your needs you can shop all coolers here.

YETI Tundra Cooler

3 Color Options

The YETI Tundra cooler is designed for true lovers of the outdoors: guys and gals who are in the field or on a boat season after season, for whom ordinary coolers just won’t cut it. Durable? Oh yes. This marine cooler is made from the same roto-molded polyethylene as whitewater kayaks. And the molded-in, self-stopping hinges mean you’ll never have to replace a busted hinge again. Effective? You bet. Two to three inches of insulation, extra-thick walls and a freezer-style gasket mean you’ll spend more time doing what you love and less time restocking ice.  If you happen to take these top-quality coolers into bear country, don’t fret — it’s been certified grizzly proof.

Features

  • Rotomolded construction
  • Bearfoot, non-slip feet
  • Permafrost insulation
  • No sweat design
  • Doublehaul handles
  • Vortex drain system
  • T-Rex Lid Latches

The greatest cooler ever !!

I purchase the tundra 65 two weeks ago and it has been the best investment ever in a cooler. My food and drinks stayed cold the entire trip.

About YETI

In 2006, YETI founders, brothers Roy and Ryan Seiders, set out to build a cooler without compromise. They were tired of handles breaking apart, latches snapping off, and lids caving in year after year. Ordinary ice chests were cutting outdoor adventures short and regularly costing money to replace. So, they decided to create a solution — to engineer a cooler that could keep ice for days, one that was completely different than any cooler that had come before it. Cue the legendary Tundra® Cooler. It was made especially for the serious outdoor enthusiast rather than the occasional camper. One that can get dropped out of a truck, dragged through the backcountry, withstand any weather, and still be game for more. Since 2006, YETI has designed even more products to stand up to the hazards of the wild. That way you can stay out longer, travel farther, and live harder. No matter where the wild takes you, there’s a YETI ready to tackle your next adventure head on.

YETI Roadie 24 Cooler Polyethylene

4 Color Options

The YETI Roadie 24 Cooler is a fresh take on a tried-and-true YETI favorite. It’s 10% lighter weight, holds 20% more, and even performs 30% better thermally than its legendary predecessor. Plus, YETI built it tall enough to accommodate taller bottles but slim enough to squeeze behind the driver’s or passenger’s seat of a car.

Features

  • Rotomolded Construction
  • Permafrost Insulation
  • Neverfail Hinge System

What Customers Are Saying

Good for what it's for, some room for improvement

Why I bought it: You can fit two 1-gallon jugs of water plus four 20oz bottles of water in it with room for a 10lb bag of ice on top, so ideal for those who work in the heat and want ice cold water sun up - sun down. It has a smaller footprint than the Roadie 20 and fits perfectly in the passenger seat of my work truck/field office. The added height vs the 20 means you can pull out a jug to drink and not have to dig at the the ice with your hand to fit it back inside and be able to close the lid. Also, taller 1L water bottles fit upright. The TL;DR details: I have used the Roadie 20 (basically the baby of the Tundra line with an annoying stiff handle) for a few years as a work cooler and overnight camping or dayhike trailhead cooler, it will still be used for the latter two purposes, handles a 12pk like a champ, but the Roadie 24 is now my regular jobsite cooler. Compared to the Roadie 20, the 24 is not bear-resistant, the new plasticy-rubbery latch handles are not as secure as the tire rubber tun...
