Why KULA is Cooler

Roto molded plastic construction that led the Gator Proof Alliance to certify these babies “GATOR PROOF.”

The KULA makes the perfect seat so we figured we might as well make it more comfortable.

We’ve built in side mounted stainless steel pins for the Travelink™ carry sling just in case you need a helping shoulder to carry the load.

We’ve cold tested the KULA for days in a bunch of different conditions and found that your ice will consistently outlast you in the heat.

No Explanation needed. You can open and close the KULA using just one hand.

We put the drain plug on the bottom. Where it should be. No more nasty water hanging around.

Yeah, it comes with an integrated stainless steel bottle opener. Shouldn’t every cooler?

Sticky rubber feet help keep the KULA from sliding all around and keep it stable enough to use as a step stool, sitting stool or even a casting platform.

Outfitted with a rotating stainless steel handle, the KULA can easily be transported with one hand.

Why KULA is Cooler

Certified Gator Proof with Gatorshell®

Roto molded plastic construction that led the Gator Proof Alliance to certify these babies “GATOR PROOF.” Food grade plastic that’s tuff enough for you to sit, stand, jump, or hit it with a sledge hammer. Just cause it’s tuff doesn’t mean it isn’t soft enough for your food.

The KULA is the only product certified by the Gator Proof Alliance (GPA)

Great cooler!

I absolutely love this cooler, super high quality and very sturdy! My wife likes to sit on the comfortable lid while I fish and paddle us around!

I bought 2 of the KULA 5 Coolers. They are the perfect size for a day on the river or lake. If it is a shorter trip, we even use one as a cooler and one as a storage compartment to keep keys and phones in. Keeps ice for days, and drinks cool for the duration of any kayaking/paddleboarding trip. My ONLY complaint is my husband's came with a hat inside and mine DIDN'T!

Good Cooler

Great little cooler! Have used a few times now. Excited to strap it to a board but getting cold here in Michigan. Looks great with some stickers on it as well!

Bought two of these . Perfect for the raft or fishing boat where it serves as a secondary seat. Extremely well made and worth the money
