Default Bag cooler??

Guys

I'm looking for a good bag cooler if there is such a thing. I had one a long time ago and just remember it leaking bad. Havent used it since. Looking for a bag style cooler that does NOT leak. Something to carry 12 or so cans in with ice. Tired of carrying heavy ass coolers around just for an evening out on the boat drinking a few beers.

Polar Bear Coolers - www.polarbearcoolers.com
They're great - I've got 2 the 24 pack and the 12 pack size. I've liked them so much I've given about a half dozen as gifts. It's worth a google for coupons too. Sometimes they do a 2 for 1 sale.

Norchill are the best hands down. Best liner best zipper. I abuse mine and have them in every size.

They do bogo on here sometimes

Another vote for Norchill. Especially if going to be subject to physical abuse. Good people too.

The large size is well within carry-on limits if you want to bring fish home from a trip.

Awesome coolers.

Organized a poker run 6-7 years back and had a sponsor buy 100 entrants 24 can coolers from AOcoolers.com. Most everyone in attendance has since bought several others. I now have 4 and still use the original one we got back then too. Never heard of anyone having a problem with them. (I've heard polar bear coolers were good but never seen one in person nor know anyone that owns one)

AOcoolers are popular with the local kayak fishermen. Supposedly, they come with a good warranty if leaks ever begin.

I thought this thread was going to be about a new type of underwear.

After doing some searching I ended up ordering the AO cooler 12 pack.
We will see how it holds up. Guaranteed not to leak.... We wil see..

Default AO coolers hands down.

AO coolers are the ticket. I have had one for 18 years with no leaks. It is so old that the green sunbrella material has faded and worn to almost white over the years. Still no leaks just as promised. Comes with a lifetime warranty not to leak. I don't know how a soft side cooler could get much better than this.

I have an AO and am very happy with it. I have friends that have Polar Bears and they speak well of them.

I just got a text last night from a buddy who bought a Polar Bear 24 from me and he was raving about how well it holds ice. I am sure the AO is top notch as well. These bag coolers are so much nicer on the boat or anywhere really than a hard cooler and hold ice extremely well. The fact that they dont slide around and dont scratch up your boat is a huge bonus.
