Introducing the “KULA” Cooler from Bote
Sierra Rec Magazine – Gear Reviews – Meet the KULA Cooler – Yeah, it’s round! Why shouldn’t it be? The team over at BOTE figured since all your drinks are round, it only made sense. The KULA is a tool for your life: lightweight, easy to carry, tough as hell and designed to keep ice ’till the cows come home. Perfect for your day at the beach and on the water in Lake Tahoe or any of the other 400 lakes of the Sierra.
From a campfire barstool to a beachside lunchbox, the KULA is there when you need it. The KULA is available in 5 and 2.5-gallon sizes with the 2.5-gallon hardshell featuring a tap so you can mix up and serve 2.5 gallons of your favorite beverage. And there are a wide range of colorways to fit the vibe of your setup – Seafoam, Citron, White, Graphite, Koral, Tan, and more.
KULA Hardshell Features
- Gatorshell – Roto-molded plastic construction that led the Gator Proof Alliance (GPA) to certify these as “Gator Proof.” Tough enough for you to sit, stand, jump, or hit with a sledge hammer. Food grade plastic – just because it’s tough doesn’t mean it isn’t soft enough for your food.
- “Badass” Insulation – BOTE cold-tested the KULA for days in a bunch of different conditions and found that you ice will consistently outlast you in the heat. BOTE injects out insulation after the Gatorshell is produced to add strength.
- One-hand Latch -No explanation needed. Open and close the KULA with one hand!
- Tote Handle – Outfitted with a rotating stainless steel handle, the KULA can easily be transported with one hand, and comes with a comfortable grip EVA sleeve.
- 270 Hinge – With a unique rear rubber hinge the KULA lid can open all the way so that you can grab your drink from any side.
- Tub Drain – BOTE put the drain plug on the bottom. Where it should be. No more nasty water hanging around.
- Bottle Jaws – Yeah, it comes with an integrated stainless steel bottle opener. Shouldn’t every cooler?
- Sticky Feet – Sticky rubber feet help keep the KULA from sliding all around and keep it stable enough to use as a step stool, sitting stool or even a casting platform.
- 5 Year Warranty
