    Default Cooler suggestions

    Anyone have a suggestion on a cooler that will fit in the milk crate location on a yak. My Redfish 12 has just enough room for something that is milk crate size. I'd prefer one that has rod holders or can attach rod holders. I'd like something that can be used as a cooler or dry box for storage. TIA!

    Depends on your budget, RTIC insulated (yeti knockoff) just had a killer sale. I'd know your dimensions, and then wait for a deal and be ready to pull the trigger when the deal pops up.

    From what you listed, you might want to take a look at engle coolers. They have models that serve as DRy boxes as well as a cooler. Also you can get them with or without rod holders. They are pretty popular with stand up paddle boarders as a rod storage and for a seat.

    I use both coolers above, the engle has a snap shot Front lid and is easy to close the Arctic has the zipper– Hard to close- Both are very good quality!!

    Yep, One has to get those RTIC Yeti knock offs before May 1 when RTIC has to quit selling them based on the lawsuit settlement agreement.

    I've used the Engel and Yeti. The Yeti is 20 quarts and the Engel is 30 quarts for the same size. The Engel definitely doesn't hold ice as well, but it is so much lighter and holds so much more the trade off is worth it. I've also had lots of fish that I can't get in the Yeti that will fit in the Engel

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I've been looking at the Engel and it seems to have pretty good reviews. Good to hear from some of you using them.

    I've actually been thinking about this too...going a little more DIY (cheaper) to see how it works for me before spending more $$$...
