Cordova’s Secret to Superior Ice Retention:

You heard yourselves, folks, Cordova Coolers are not only American-made but they live up to the hype of extreme performance, at 7 to 10 days of ice retention. One of the standout features of Cordova hard coolers is their roto-molded (aka rotational molded) construction. This manufacturing process involves creating a seamless, one-piece cooler by rotating heated plastic in a mold. The result is a rugged, durable cooler that is capable of withstanding the harshest environments. The roto-molded design also ensures that there are no weak points or vulnerable seams that can compromise the cooler's insulation and ice retention capabilities.

Another key feature that sets our hard-sided coolers apart is their thick, insulated walls, which effectively trap cold air inside the cooler while keeping external heat at bay. Equipped with environmentally friendly Ecofoam insulation, your cooler will keep ice frozen for longer, even in scorching hot temperatures.
