If you’ve ever tried taking a cooler on a camping, hunting, or hiking trip, you know that they can be cumbersome things. Most of them do a decent job of keeping things cold, but are completely lacking when it comes to portability. Even the smaller, soft-sided varieties often have suitcase-style handles and, therefore, require the use of your hands. And that makes carrying things like, say, a hunting rifle or hiking sticks all but impossible. Thankfully, the folks at Orca have addressed this issue with their innovative Podster cooler.
With an impressive 3.5 gallons of internal space, the Podster has more than enough room for everything you might need on those brief trips. But, if you’ve got something you want to stay separate or you need a little extra space, it’s also MOLLE compatible. What makes it really special, however, is the attached backpack straps that allow you to carry this cooler hands-free. You don’t even have to worry about the contents sloshing around and running down your back or taking a spill in your local lake, because it’s also leak and waterproof – keeping the contents safe and isolated. And you can get one right now for $310. [Purchase]
