Get Ready for the Duck and Goose Hunting Season with Cooler Gear
Although we can’t compete with your four-legged best friend on a hunt, Cordova wants to be your next best friend this season with reliable gear that won’t give you away. With a wide variety of hard coolers and soft coolers available in new colors and camo patterns, find what you need to keep your game preserved, your gear dry, and your provisions fresh throughout the trip. You can even pick up something for your trusty hunting buddy too.
On the Boat, Under a Blind, and in the Bush
Avid duck and goose hunters know there’s more than one way set up on a migratory airway, a roosting spot, and a feeding area. Decoy and pass shooters that use blinds for concealment dig in and wait for the right opportunity, while jump shooters tend to be on the move on both land and water. Each technique and hunting style requires different types of gear to maximize utility and mobility.
The new SEAL 65L Dry Duffel Bag is an essential piece of gear, especially if the hunt takes you on or near the waterways. The heavy-duty ballistic nylon material and watertight zipper keeps water out and contents dry. It’s built with a wet and a dry compartment to meet the needs of an active amphibious sportsman.
Waterfowlers with boats and other watercraft are able to stow small and mid-sized hard coolers. Perhaps you need a few refreshments to enjoy between scouting locations as well. The 28 QT Companion and the 48 QT Adventurer are best suited for the job in terms of size, features, and cooling power. Anti-Slip Goat Feet keep the cooler steady in the craft and Top Loader Latches improve accessibility in tight spaces.
In the blind or on the move, Cordova’s new and improved soft coolers are ruggedized, lightweight, and ready to stalk along with you. Equip the Traveler Day Pack for shorter hunts and fixed positions. The Voyager Cooler Backpack is great for longer excursions and it features two additional compartments to store duck calls or extra gear. Both are made from 840D ballistic nylon and watertight zippers, which are designed to get you through a full day’s hunt through the fields and wetlands.
New Camo Patterns and Subdued Colors
Cordova is partnering with trusted camouflage designer Mossy Oak to wrap hard coolers with two of their innovative patterns: Bottomland and Shadow Grass Blades. If you set your cooler down somewhere, just please remember where you put it because good luck finding it after a jump. Kryptek patterns are also available and ready to ship from the Nampa, ID facility. Cordova offers custom wraps and designs with hunters in mind all year round. Just let them know what you have in mind.
If you’re looking for something basic, select from a variety of colors and earth tones that match your style. The redesigned soft coolers come in OD green and navy blue along with gray interiors. Similarly, Cordova’s double-walled, stainless steel water bottles are available in OD green, gray, woodgrain, and many other colors. Whether choosing a pattern or solid color, you won’t have to worry about giving your position away with your Cordova gear.
Go out and enjoy the season with a group of friends and your poochy partner. Take care of your party and pack up smartly to make sure everyone gets a cold one at the end of the trip. They don’t build bottle openers into the handles for nothing. Cordova is proud to serve sportsmen and women who are just as passionate about conservation and responsible stewardship as they are. Making you the best quality gear that lasts, right here in the USA, is what drives our people to handcraft the coolest products each and every day. Happy hunting!
