Editor’s Choice – ORCA 58 Quart

ORCA 58 Quart

Among the other coolers we tested for insulation, the ORCA 58 Quart came out on top as it was able to maintain food at safe temperatures and was also able to hold the ice together the longest.

Apart from insulation, we also found the design of the ORCA 58 Quart to be best utilized – the cooler is less bulky and ease to transport. A small drawback that we did notice was that the drain could have been better and easier to operate. However mainly due to its ability to insulate longer and its ease of portability, we consider the ORCA 58 Quart better than the rest.

Here’s the lowdown: The ORCA 58 was able to keep temperatures below 40˚F (which is the temperature recommended by the FDA) for a whopping 6 full days. It is also able to retain ice for seven whole days which makes it ideal if you are planning long trips.

The design of this cooler also contributes to maximizing the coolers insulation performance. It is shaped almost like a perfect cube and is slightly taller than the rest which keeps the surface area to volume ratio lower.

The construction of the ORCA has plenty of hallmarks such as sturdy hinges that are thick and durable. The seal lid is also one of the strongest in its class and we tried hard to leak water out, but this cooler wouldn’t give in.

Looking at user reviews as well, we didn’t find any complaints about the coolers durability. In terms of ease of use, we found the OCRA 58 to be slightly lacking behind — the lid, for instance, snaps shut at a very fast rate which meant that we had to keep one hand on the lid at all times when accessing the cooler.

In terms of portability, however, it is much better than the other coolers we used. The handles are flexible enough to evenly distribute the weight load when carrying it around. In terms of its value, too, this cooler is priced cheaper that most other high end coolers on the market and is also big in terms of its performance.

Last but not the least; it is available in over 10 colours, the most popular of which are pink, green, tan and white.
