Getaway (South Africa) - - On Track -

There’s some­thing com­fort­ing about a cooler de­signed and built by South Africans who know how tough the out­doors can be. In­stead of us­ing in­jec­tion or blow­moulded plas­tic, it is made fol­low­ing the same process as that used for white-wa­ter kayaks. This, plus a UV-re­sis­tant coat­ing, gen­uine-leather straps and han­dles, and moulded hinges, cre­ate a ro­bust unit (though we re­frained from throw­ing it down stairs to test). The stand-out testable fea­ture for us was the ice re­ten­tion – we used the 45-litre on a week­end and still had oo­dles of ice come Mon­day morn­ing. We also loved the non-slip feet, teth­ered drain plug and built-in bot­tle opener.
