KONG Cruiser

High-end rotomolded cooler on wheels released

October 2022 Product, Feature

For three years KONG Coolers has been helping boaters journey longer with coolers that retain ice for longer than almost any other cooler brand in the industry. Now, outdoor enthusiasts can journey further with the new KONG Cruiser. At 50 quarts, the wheeled cooler is ideal for hauling food and drinks to the boat for the day, or for a week-long trip.

“We are so excited to bring this new cooler into the KONG Coolers family,” says Jack Welter, CEO of the company. “The KONG Cruiser is designed and manufactured to provide the same level of quality and unique features our customers love with the added value of wheels.”

The KONG Cruiser holds up to 40 12-ounce cans and 30 pounds of ice. Its outer dimensions measure 25.25” x 18.5” x 20.25” with inner dimensions of 17.625” x 13.625” x 15.25”. It’s currently available in KONG Coolers’ classic Winter White, Tactical Tan, and Boulder Blue colors. More colors will be added in the future.

The KONG Cruiser joins the brands existing 25-, 50-, 70-, and 110-quart models. Like other models in the line, the KONG Cruiser is made and assembled entirely in the United States. All KONG coolers are feature rich and built to handle the harshest environments. Divided storage keeps food and beverages organized, gaskets in combination with latches create an insulated super seal to keep the cold in and everything else out; rigid, padded handles allow for easier carrying without sloshing; and snap-tight hinges and latch systems provide secure storage.

KONG Coolers also launched a Divider and Cut’N Tray compatible with the KONG Cruiser. These accessory concepts are not new to the KONG family. The divider allows for internal divided storage either vertically or horizontally. The Cut’N Tray easily hooks to the side of the cooler with a KONG Kicker to complete a secure surface for preparing food and drinks. Other popular existing accessories compatible with the new cooler include the KONG Bottle Biter to open drinks and the KONG Krush Guards to protect fingers.

More affordable than other expedition-ready coolers on the market, the new KONG Cruiser comes in at a reasonable price point of $419 USD. Additionally, KONG Coolers come with a limited lifetime warranty and are backed by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.

KONG Coolers are manufactured and owned by Elkhart Plastics, Inc., a privately owned rotational molding company headquartered in South Bend, Ind. KONG Coolers products are made at the company’s Atlantic, Iowa, facility. KONG Coolers are available at kongcoolers.com and on Amazon. KONG Coolers also offers bulk orders and custom cooler designs.
