Katy, Texas (PRWEB) July 26, 2013
Igloo Products Corp., the nation’s largest cooler manufacturer, has introduced a new line of affordable – but still virtually indestructible - rotational molded coolers called Sportsman. The Sportsman series serves as a complementary series of coolers to the premium Yukon Cold Lockers released in early 2012.
According to Igloo hard-sides product manager, Lisa Silva, the Sportsman is a game-changer in the roto-molded cooler market. “With comparable or better features to the leading competitors and a lower price point, the Sportsman will be the best value on the market,” Silva explained.
The line consists of two sizes—a 55-quart and a 20-quart. The 55-quart Sportsman will fit into most boat racks and under leaning posts that were designed to fit a 72-quart Igloo Marine footprint. The 20-quart is the ideal size for kayaking, sailing or other day trips.
Each Sportsman comes with a minimum of two inches of foam insulation in the gasketed lid and 1.5-2 inches of foam in the body for extended cooling performance and has virtually indestructible rotational-molded construction with UV inhibitors and infrared technology. Like the Yukon, Sportsmans have a raised non-slip, textured working surface, fish ruler, Cool Riser Technology, and an oversized, tethered drain plug. They also feature durable, flexible rubber latches with finger grips, corrosion resistant aluminum hinges, and anti-skid feet. The lockable lid takes both short and long shank locks commonly found in the home.
The 55-quart has comfort grip, no-sway handles that fold flat to save space, while the 20-quart comes with a “3-point grab” bail style handle with cushion-grip and two self-draining cup holders molded into the lid.
The Sportsman 55 will make its debut in August 2013 and has an MSRP of $299.99. The 20-quart retails for $219.99 and will be available in the fall of 2013.
