AGREED AGREED AGREED!!!!!!

We have tried seemingly every soft side cooler on the market over the past 5 years and AO's are the BEST!!!!!!

I have two for the Motion (with custom logos) and one for our lake boat (with the Nordic logo). There have been times when we have been out onf the lake boat, came into the house and did not empty the cooler, and the next morning, there was still ice floating and the beers were cold. I have had mine for about 18 months with NO PROBLEMS. No leaks, no tears, no problems. I know I sound like a sales rep for them, but they are hands down the best coolers I have ever purchased.

An Active Thunder boat owner and business sponsor of the Jammin' on the James Poker Run bought EVERY boat a cooler; two years ago. The PR packages actually came in an AO cooler.

Thanks again Stan!

AOs are the best. It's the only one we use

Iv got about 500 foot of front yard and 200 ft of dock. One fo those soft bags would be more work then I do the rest of the day lugiing 2 case and ice out with me.

The hard cooler with the wheels is the tick for me. Plus they are way easier to drain and wash out when you get to drunk to take them out of the boat from the wwekend before.

I like the wheels idea, but I like the Soft too. I'm going to try the AO I'm tired of boat bites from the hard cooler.

I'd go with a soft cooler from american outdoors. I just bought 5 of the 48's for groomsman gifts.

Go ahead and get the AO coolers, and buy a fold-flat luggage cart with the 6" tall wheels on it. You will use the cart more often than you think and it stows easily in the boat.
