One of the most frustrating, stressful things for a hunter is losing your hard earned harvest to heat. I remember last year during the Antelope season when my stress level went through the roof. With temperatures soaring into the 90’s and not a gas station for miles, I was in a panic trying everything I could to cool out the antelope I had just harvested. Yeah, I brought coolers and ice for the animal if I was successful, but they were no match for the Idaho desert heat. When I returned to the truck all of the ice I had brought was melted. The only thing I could think of at the time was having the meat ride inside my pickup and blasting the A.C. Although it worked and I was able to save all of the meat, balancing the air conditioning and keeping my truck from over heating was stressful as hell. As hunters we owe our animals the best care and respect for the meat that they provide. After that day I would never go hunting without a cooler that couldn’t hold ice.
Made in the USA. First of all this means a lot to us. If something goes wrong, you can get it fixed plain and simple. They also come with a lifetime warranty to the original owner, you can’t beat that. Just don’t forget to register your cooler from 30 days of purchase and you will be covered for life.
Lets be honest the most important part of a cooler is how well it stays cool. Cordova Cooler was engineered in the heart of the glacial tundra of the Pacific Northwest. It was manufactured to hold ice longer than competitors. Cordova Coolers uses an eco friendly foam that has the highest insulation rating of any rotomolded cooler on the market today. Not to mention, if your going to have a big bulky box with you at all times, make sure it is bad ass looking. The Cordova lineup is perfect for the outdoor enthusiast that enjoys many different kinds of adventures. Not only is this a great cooler for a hunter, its perfect for just about everyone.
With so many variations of sizes the Cordova Coolers gives you the perfect size for your exact activity.
• 18.00″ Length
• 8.75″ Width
• 10.00″ Height
• 26.25″ Length
• 14.25″ Wide
• 16.00″ Height
Weight: 19.50 Pounds
Weight: 26.00 Pounds
Weight: 34.50 Pounds

Now that you have the right size lets talk features. Cordova Cooler has an air tight seal which keeps the cold in and dust out. On the front of the cooler there is two rubber latches that firmly attach the lid closed. The easy to pull rubber latches fit securely and keep the lid down.
One of the best features i’ve run across is Cordova’s patented lid locking system. When you lift the lid fully up, instead of falling back down or having to hold the lid up while your grabbing a cold one, the lid actually stays up. When your done, you can close the lid.
Since the coolers are built to hold ice, they were engineered to be built tough. You can have the best cooler out there but if latches and handles break, what good is the cooler. The Cordova Cooler is built to last, it’s built to hold your hard earned meat. The aluminum handles and comfortable rubber grips make a heavy cooler easier to move around. There is also a bottle opener on the aluminum handles that works great.
No more will your cooler be sliding around in the bed of your truck. The Cordova Cooler has rubber pads in each corner on the bottom of the cooler. An easy to use aluminum drain plug finishes off the bottom side of the cooler making it easy to drain down unwanted water.
Like our favorite beers, Cordova Cooler has a temperature activated sensor that tells you when the cooler could use a little more ice. Blue Is Good!
The price is comparable to any of the top brand competitors. Your going to spend some money on these coolers but you won’t be disappointed. To find a local dealer, check out cordovacoolers.com or message Top Priority Hunting and we will be glad to help.
