The Coolest Cooler for Adventures

In the past, when we’ve cruised through Outdoor Retailer, there has been one booth that continued to stand out from all the other cooler companies. And that’s Rovr Products. What caught my eye was the evident hardiness of their coolers, their bright designs and bold branding, but most of all their thicc wheels.

We were built to roam and Rovr’s coolers were built to roll right alongside of us.

Rovr sent us their RollR 60 to test. And it arrived just in time for a local Cub Scout camp where I was Camp Chef, cooking for over 100 adults and kids. I needed something that could cart in all the cold food, including 30 pounds of smoked pulled pork, and keep all of it cold over the weekend.

Hands down, the RollR 60 is coolest cooler I’ve seen.

The RollR was built for keeping your food and beverages cool, but with portability and organization in mind.

It can hold 60 cans and hold 20 pounds of ice. With their dry bin installed, storage capacity changes, holding 40 cans and 10 pounds of ice in the main compartment and 4-6 bottles of spirits or various foods in the dry bin.

Besides being the coolest cooler from a product design standpoint, the RollR is designed to keep your stuff cool for up to 10 days (depending on use).

When we followed their method for ice retention (article forthcoming), there were still a couple of ice cubes left by the end of day 9. That in itself is pretty darn impressive and its due to the cooler’s high density insulation.

And as the ice melts, and water builds up, there is a DualSpout™ Plug to help with draining. The great thing about the dry bin is that as water builds up, your food stays dry. There’s a clip on the side of the cooler that keeps the dry bin from floating to the top, as well.

If you’re rolling your RollR into areas that have bears, this cooler is bear resistant. They also sell Bear Proof Locks that can attached to each corner for extra protection. But still, practice safe food storage whenever you are out in nature.

On the base of the cooler are two hearty wheels that are perfect for rugged terrain. When I arrived at the Cub Scout camp, I had a quarter-mile walk from my car, down a loose gravel trail. My 18-year old Igloo cooler wouldn’t have been able to handle it, but the RollR handled it with ease.

With the dual grip handle, I found it easy to pull the cooler behind me without it bumping against my heels. Likewise, while it was loaded with 80 pounds of food and ice, it wasn’t cumbersome. With one hand I pulled the cooler, while my other hand was free to haul a tent and duffle bag.

With the RollR cooler don’t forget to pick up a RovR® LandR™ Bin. This bin sits on top of the cooler, attached by Velcro straps. It’s great for storing extra snacks, water, or helping cart in additional campsite supplies.

RovR Essentials Pack

If you do buy a RollR cooler, you also need to pick up their Essentials Pack. It comes with an attachable prep board, cup holder, and stash bag. These accessories make camp life a bit easier. The prep board makes for a great small cutting board or a small serving tray.

I can’t tell you how cool I feel toting around this cooler. I feel like a bad ass.

At the Cub Scout camp, dads were checking it out: opening and closing the lid, playing with the dry bin, and kicking the tires. It definitely catches the eye.

One other killer accessory this cooler has is a bike hitch. Oftentimes in our neighborhood we gather at our community part. And I can’t wait for the next opportunity to roll up with this amazing cooler!

Rumpl Down Puffy Blanket Review

If you’re in the market for a new blanket for camping or just being cozy, one brand you’ve probably heard of is Rumpl.

Rumpl AllTrails Collaboration

Their blankets are top-notch: light, water-resistant, and eco-friendly with their post-consumer recycled polyester.

Their dedication to environmental causes goes deeper, though. They donate 1% of sales to offset their carbon footprint. They also work with low carbon transportation options. And Rumpl is a Certified B Corporation.

Rumpl AllTrails Collaboration

Rumpl sent us their AllTrails collaboration blanket to test, we’ve enjoyed the versatility their product provides. It’s the perfect picnic blanket, great for camping, the perfect cozy wraparound, or as a cape with their Cape-Clip.

Rumpl AllTrails Collaboration

It also includes:

  • 100% post-consumer recycled polyester shell and insulation
  • DWR finish for stain and water resistance
  • Corner loops
  • Machine washable
  • Water-resistant stuff sack included

I love this product. It’s a great companion especially for camping when you aren’t sure if a sleeping bag is enough. My kids love it too. We spend a lot of our early mornings outdoors and now that it’s cooler, it is a great blanket for cuddling.

If you’re looking for a cozy companion this Fall, look no further than Rumpl!

Ranchland Leather Knife Sheath Review

Ranchlands is a Colorado-based family ranch that owns and manages livestock operations. Their mission is to promote the conservation of rangelands, their ranching legacy, and quality of life for people living and working on ranches.

A big part of how they bring their mission to life is through their ranch-based experiences. You can ride with bison, visit the Great Sand Dunes National Park, or hike the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Your experience can be topped off with a massage and a delicious dinner.

Ranchlands also has a wonderful mercantile store; complete with palm leaf hats and various forms of leatherwork, including bracelets, belts, and sheaths.

They sent us a leather knife sheath to test out along with a Moore Maker Trapper Knife.

Their leather knife sheath is beautiful and sits perfectly on the hip.

It is made with natural veg-tanned leather. With light use, I could tell that the leather would gradually change color; developing a soft sheen. This is part of the beauty of leather-work, but also demonstrates the care that Ranchland put into their product design. Through use, this sheath will become uniquely mine. Someone else might have the exact same sheath design and the exact same knife that fits within it, but the patterns and colors developed over time will be my own.

The sheath is designed with a double-layered “pancake” construction so that it will last for a long time. The stitching is tight, as well. While testing, I tried to see how loose I could get the stitching, but it held up. It reached a point with the Moore Maker Trapper Knife where it would slide in and out easily, but wasn’t so loose where I could accidentally lose the knife.

It’s worth noting that the sheaths are molded specifically for the Moore Maker Trapper Knives. If you have a knife that you would like Ranchlands to create a custom sheath for, you can create a custom order on their website.

The Moore Maker Trapper Knife is a great pocketknife and perfect companion for whittling or for keeping on your hip for whenever a need arises. The blade folds out, but doesn’t lock; folding back in easily.

While I don’t work on a ranch, there’s been plenty of outdoor adventures where this knife and sheath have come into use. At a recent Cub Scout camp, I was the Camp Chef, and it was great having a blade on my hip to pull out and quickly slice into food packages. Likewise, it was a solid blade to share with my son for his whittling activities or for my own whittling while the scouts gorged themselves on s’mores.

This knife and sheath combo makes a great addition to my gear closet, but it will also make a great gift.

Check it out on their site and don’t forget: if the ranch life is calling, check out their immersive events.

Salt Life Sailing Tropics Boardshorts Review

Even though Summer is winding down, there is still plenty of time to get out onto the water.

Salt Life sent me a pair of their Sailing Tropics Boardshorts to test and they have been the perfect companion for water adventures: paddle boarding, wakeboarding, and swimming.

Salt Life’s Sailing Tropics Boardshorts

Salt Life’s Sailing Tropics Boardshorts are great. They are made from performance  SLX-QD 4 way Vapor stretch fabric. It’s quick-drying, ultra-light, and super comfy.

There’s also a liner inside, which functioned great. Other boardshorts I have don’t have a liner and I have found myself getting chafed after several hours on the water. Not with these though! They fit comfortably, hitting above the knee, around mid-thigh, with an 18″ mid-seam.

The Sailing Tropics Boardshorts are perfect for when you’re spending all day at the beach.

Plus, these shorts are pretty darn cool and stylish. The colors on these really pop and stand up well after playing in salt water and after several washes.

These shorts also come with:

  • Elastic waist w/drawcord
  • On-seam pockets and side leg vents
  • Back flap pocket
  • Woven label patch on front leg
  • Mesh liner

They are $56 online. I’m a 34″ waist and wear a size Medium.
