Kayak Catch Cooler

After yesterday's paddle, I stopped in at West Marine to have a look at the kayaks. The selection was vastly reduced from last year, and there were only a few Ocean Kayak sit-on-tops to see. However, I poked around in the accessories section and found this product--the Seattle Sports Kayak Catch Cooler. It was on clearance, and a quick check on the iPhone determined that "50% off" really was half the price of any online deals.

The products appears well designed and well made, and the reviews I read at REI and at Austin Kayak were all positive. It should help with a problem I've been contemplating with regard to a couple of overnight paddles this summer--namely, how to keep some food cold for an evening cookout without taking up valuable below-deck space. The reflective cooler bag has six clips to hold it securely to kayak deck lines, and it features an inner liner where you can put fish to keep them cold during a day on the lake or river. I'm looking forward to trying out this cooler bag soon.
