Fishpond Coolers
2020 Models
Free Ground Shipping

When Fishpond brought soft sided coolers to the market we immediately ordered some to sell in the shop and online. We were amazed at how well these products sold. 

Of course I bought one of each for Paula and I to use on fishing trips and in our kayaks.  They worked.  They are still working years later. The colors have changed. The products are still the same. We use the Fishpond Ice Storm ccoler in our larger boat. Our boats have Fishpond Coolers, along with other Fishpond products every time we push off from shore.

We placed Fishpond water bottle holders and the River Rat 2.0 beverage cooler in this category too.

Blizzard Soft Cooler
Waxed Cotton

The Fishpond Blizzard Soft Cooler, which has been made and sold by the company for many years, is now available as an additional model to match your Fishpond luggage. It looks great. The exterior is waxed cotton in Fishpond’s “Earth “ color.

My wife and I have two of older model PC’s (Personal Coolers). We use two on our boat, one in the stern and one in the bow. We use them every time we are in the boat. We use them in our kayaks. There are times we use the larger Ice Storm cooler in our boat. These coolers are large enough, and efficient enough, to keep our beverages and food, needed for a day of fly fishing, cold.

All Blizzard Soft Sided Coolers have a zippered primary lid, to open completely, and fill the cooler with ice and contents. The most innovative feature, that makes these coolers so popular, is the “Quick Access Hatch”. This small door is held closed by Velcro. It is insulated. You can just pop it open, reach in a grab a bottle of water or a sandwich, then close it quickly. That helps keep the cold air in and the hot air out. What a great idea.

There are two exterior pockets. One on the back is zippered and the one on the front is held closed with Velcro.

The Blizzard is well insulated, to keep your food and drinks cold. It is leak proof. The bottom is supported by Fishpond’s signature molded bottom for durability and to keep water on the floor of your boat, off the sides.

There are two carry handles and a removable padded shoulder strap. You can carry more Fishpond luggage into the lodge along with your cooler.

Fishpond has designed and made many coordinated and functional luggage pieces, in the “Earth” color using their waxed cotton exterior. They have a rugged traditional look that is so attractive, any man or woman would be proud to be seen anywhere with these luggage pieces. And now, there is a personal cooler to match.

The Blizzard dimensions are 11.5” x 9” x 10”. The interior volume is 1,035 cubic inches.

You will love it. It may become your companion every day.

Fishpond Waxed Cotton
Ice Storm Cooler

Fishpond’s Ice Storm Cooler, dressed in waxed cotton, is a re-make of the original, to match the company’s luggage collection. It is the same great cooler we have known for years. I have had one since they were first made, probably 8 or more years ago. I never use a rigid cooler in a boat.

Both Fishpond soft sided coolers, the Blizzard and Ice Storm, are great for keeping your food and beverages cold for hours, while reducing weight in your boat, canoe or kayak. What is most innovative about the Ice Storm, is it’s ability to shrink its size, depending on the volume of the contents. Not only is it a weight saver, it can be a space saver too.

We fill ours with gear for long trips in our truck. Then, use it as a cooler when we arrive at our destination. When its use is not a cooler, it is a padded gear bag.

Open the main zipper and pack it with ice, food and drinks, and you will find it is huge and heavy when fully packed, but with all the handles and the strap, you can take it where you need to. The Ice Storm holds a lot of stuff. This cooler has an interior volume of 2,400 cubic inches, over twice that of the Blizzard Cooler.

I like to freeze plastic bottles of water, to use as ice to keep the contents cold, but they can also be consumed as they thaw. That saves space in the Ice Storm and the Blizzard coolers. You can use less ice. If you don’t drink all of the water, re-freeze the bottles and use them next time.

The Fishpond Ice Storm Cooler has one large zipper that allows you to open it completely to fill. The zipper has two slides, so you can open just one corner, or one half, to reach in, without letting all the cold air escape. The two-slide zipper is one important feature most people do not notice at first. 

The bottom, sides and top are constructed using multiple layers of insulation, to keep your contents cold for hours. The Ice Storm is waterproof. Water will not leak out. It features Fishpond’s signature molded bottom, a tough base, designed for durability. You will find an exterior pocket for storing zip lock bags, a cutting board and other utensils.

There are lash points for attaching just about anything you can imagine. Transport this cooler using the two carry handles on the end, the main carrying handle in the middle on top, or using the included shoulder strap.

This Ice Storm cooler is special, because it matches other Fishpond luggage pieces. You will be stylish, carrying this into any hotel or lodge. The look is traditional. Most people won’t know it is a cooler. It looks like luggage.

It is great for fly fishing excursions, day trips in your truck or picnics. I have used an Ice Storm in my kayak and our boat. I also use an Ice Storm Cooler in our beach cart, when surf fishing. It’s perfect for that.

Dimensions are 19” x 11” x 11.5”. Interior volume is 2,400 cubic inches. The exterior color of the waxed cotton is “Peat Moss”.

Fishpond Molded
Water Bottle Holder

The Fishpond Molded Water Bottle Holder is one of the most useful pieces of gear made by Fishond. It was introduced in late 2015. They are popular. Most people probably bought them initially as a water bottle holder. This bottle holder is rigid, which allows you to attach it either horizontally or vertically. It does not sag. It stays put!

You can easily attach it to any belt, using the Velcro lined heavy duty fabric belt patch. It won’t come off, not matter how much abuse it gets. This attachment is strong. A locking drawstring holds your water bottle firmly in place.

Look at the black square, odd looking piece on the back in the photo. Fishpond calls it a 4-Way Lash Tab. The lash tab is essential to the beauty of this bottle holder. You can insert webbing, or Velcro strips, and attach it to almost anything imaginable. The webbing or Velcro can go through in either direction. Attach horizontally or vertically. The loop on the back and top is yet another attachment option.

OK, what we have here is a nice looking water bottle holder with a Fishpond vibe. Isn’t that enough for $19.95?

No, there is more. It is more. I use them as Universal Beverage Container Holders in places you would not imagine. Using Velcro, two are mounted to the front doors of my truck, giving me two extra cup holders that look good. I have cup holders in my truck’s console. There is always something else in them. Paula and I have two mounted on our beach cart.  

They are movable, making them even more useful. They work great in our boat and kayaks. We haven’t tried them in our canoe. I’m sure there is a way. Fishpond probably would not believe how they fit on my John Deere Gator. I should send them a photo.

Use a screw and washer, and attach this beverage holder to a cooler or some other hard surface. Drill a hole in the bottom for drainage and leave them outside.

I’ve used mine to hold: Yeti Coldster, Yeti Tumbler, Beer or soft drinks in bottles or cans, Size small soft drinks from McDonalds when traveling, Solo Cups, Bottles of water bought at convenience markets, Coffee in styrofoam cups with lids…the list goes on and on.

This is one of the handiest products made by Fishpond and most people don’t know how versatile they are. What you see in the photo is a cheap water bottle. The possibilities are endless.

Dimensions are 5” tall by 3” Diameter.

Fishpond Molded Water Bottle Holder Large 7"

Fishpond’s 7” Large Molded Water Bottle Holder, may be as popular for outdoor enthusiasts as the smaller 5” version has been. The original is a huge selling item in our store. The innovative, rigid, molded bottle holder design will likely last for decades. This is a very useful piece of gear.

Rigid design is of the utmost importance with this product. Rigid sets this bottle holder apart from all others that are not. Because it is rigid, it can be mounted in many different ways to almost anything. I mounted the smaller version to the door in my truck, because my cup holders in the console always have something else in them.

The Fishpond Molded Large Bottle Holder has a wide and long, Velcro flap, for attaching to any belt, either the one holding your pants up or the one keeping your waders tight.

Another key innovation is the 4-Way Lash Tab. See the black piece on the back of the holder? You can pull many different types of fabric, string or Velcro though the slots, vertical or horizontal. Using your imagination, you will be able to mount the holder to about anything.

You can attach the Holder to vests, chest packs, sling packs or just about anything worn by a fly fisherman. Using Velcro straps of different widths and lengths, found at a hardware store, allow you to use your imagination, along with the 4-way lash tab.

The cord loop hanger on the back of the holder gives you even more attachment options.

I thought about using wood screws and a washer, to attach a Fishpond Molded Water Bottle Holder to a solid surface, like a boat or cooler.

Remember, it is rigid so It can be attached horizontal. The locking drawstring will hold your bottle in place.

So far, here is what I put in my 5” Molded Bottle Holder from Fishpond. I have not tried the 7" holder.

Can of beer or soft drink.
10 oz glass water bottle.
16.9 oz plastic water bottle.
Yeti Colster. It is a perfect fit.
Yeti 20 oz Tumbler fits.
Solo Cup

Most bottled drinks bought in a grocery stores or convenience markets will fit, except the really big ones.


Dimensions: 7” x 3” Diameter

Water Bottle Not Included.
