Default ORCA Coolers

Anyone here have one or a chance to see one? Going to visit the factory and considering taking them on. All I know is they are 100% American made and seems to be of good quality. Oh yeah, lifetime warranty...

Looks like a Yeit clone.

Yeah, Yeti going through some changes. I believe most of their items are made overseas now. They are changing sizes too often, etc...

ORCA for now is 100% made here and can justify the big bucks. We'll see.

I just received a new orca 26qt in tan. Very well made, good quality and a good value. I'll put it to the test shortly.
I have five yeti coolers. I didn't pay any attention to the yeti's inside capacities. Assuming my 35's were actually 35qts. They aren't (28.8qts). The orca 26 is slightly larger than my tundra 35's. I bought it to split the difference between my 15qt roadie and 35qt tundras. Not disappointed in my purchase just my lack of attention to overall dimensions.
I will load a yeti 35 and the orca 26 with the same amount of beer, bottled water and pack both full of ice, place them side by side in the back of my tahoe and give and honest report. Windows will be up and it is hot here.

orca 26 dimensions:
Inside: 15" x 10.25" x 8.75"
Outside: 23.75" x 18" x 14.25"

yeti tundra 35 dimensions:
inside: 14 5/8 x 10.5 x 11.25
outside 21x15x16.5

Specs taken from mfg website

What. LED's

From thesite:

Keeping it cool just became cooler!

The new LiddUp by ORCA features:
• Built-in LED lighting that illuminates the interior of the cooler simply by opening the lid
• An integrated lighting system that requires no assembly and is powered by replacebale AA batteries
• LED lights that are food-safe, completely sealed so they do not come in contact with water and best of all, do not generate heat
