Engel Cooler

While you’re waiting for rescue, you’ll want a cooler that’ll keep your catch cold. One that your buddy can stand on while he shouts for help and waves at passing aircraft. And a cooler that will thwart the best efforts of a Florida black bear to steal your precious remaining vittles. That’s what the Engel Coolers are built for. There are models from 25 to 320 quarts, each with 2 inches of insulation all around, plus a silicone lid gasket and draw-down hatches that seal up tight. Choose the 320-quart model ($944) to haul your shark (and the interloping bear, if you like) back to port. Lots of smaller coolers available, too.
