Otterbox built a business out of rugged smartphone cases – the kind you want to have on your iPhone when you’re slumming it out in the wild. This time around, they want to offer the same protection for your food and drinks in the form of the Otterbox Venture Cooler.
That’s right, the outfit is branching out to Igloo and Yeti territory. And they’re doing it with a product that presents a lofty claim, too, as it touts the ability to keep ice for up to 14 days. Seriously, that’s two weeks. If the claims hold up, this might end up being one of the most capable ice boxes in the market.
The Otterbox Venture Cooler comes in three models: 25-, 45-, and 65-quarts. Those sizes should make it suitable for recreational users, whether for picnics, tailgating, or camping in the backcountry. It has an integrated mounting system that allows you to add different accessories to the cooler, including a cutting board, a dry storage tray, interior dividers, a side table, cup holders, bottle openers, and dry boxes. Simply put, you can turn it into a veritable station for eating and drinking.
Features include durable carry handles that double as tie-down anchors, sturdy latches that can be opened and closed with one hand, a slanted bottom for easy draining, anti-slide rubber feet, and optional wheels (only for the 45- and 65-quart models). It comes in three colorways: white/blue, tan/green, and camo.
Pricing for the Otterbox Venture Cooler starts at $249.99.
