When buying a cooler for day or extended trips, don’t skimp—get yourself a YETI. Burly and reliable, the YETI Tundra 110 ($450) is specifically designed to accommodate whitewater frames. It fit our 14-foot raft perfectly. Whether we were hauling beer or perishable foods, I’ve never seen ice last so long. Added bonus: the YETI is bear resistant, so food storage at camp is worry-free. Available in 10 sizes; tan or white.
