It’s officially summer and for many of us, that means more time will be spent outdoors. Whether it’s on a boat with friends, at a ballfield watching your kids play or at a neighborhood barbecue, there’s a good chance you’ll need a steady supply of cold drinks to help battle that summer heat.
We can all agree that there’s nothing worse than sipping on a watered-down, warmer version of what was your cold, refreshing beverage just thirty minutes ago. Or opening a cooler you packed that morning only to find a collection of cans bobbing in a sea of melted ice. By that point, not only are you thirsty, but you’re also frustrated.
The team at ORCA, short for Outdoor Recreation Corporation of America, strives to make sure you don’t find yourself in that situation. Based in Nashville, ORCA specializes in manufacturing products for the outdoor enthusiast ranging from coolers to drinkware to accessories, like apparel and koozies.
If you’re in the market for a cooler, there are three things you need to know about ORCA:
1. 200 hours of cool
ORCA coolers have best in class ice retention, or what they like to call “200 hours of cool.” Third-party studies have been done to show performance in ice retention and ORCA consistently lands at the top of the list.
2. All ORCA hard-sided coolers are proudly made in the U.S.A.
ORCA has two manufacturing facilities – one in Nashville, the other in Streetsboro, Ohio – where all of their products are made.
3. ORCA coolers come with a lifetime warranty. Really.
In an era filled with fine print and exceptions, ORCA stands behind its coolers by offering a lifetime warranty with each one. That means, no matter what goes wrong, they’ll repair it or send you a new one.
