PFG Perfect Cast™ 45L Thermal Tote is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this Constructed very well! Definitely built to maintain the temperature of it's contents, like a heavy duty, soft-sided cooler should do. Alas, I immediately returned it. It was wide enough and tall enough but way too thin; it had no depth, front-to-back, think giant laptop bag. The zippered top-opening was like a mail slot. It didn't help that the overall shape was tapered, meaning, narrower at the top all around, which accentuates the perceived design flaw. We were hoping to utilize this to keep groceries cool when running errands but wasn't worth the price or struggle of fitting only one bag or a few items through the top opening. Considering this is "PFG" series, slipping a fish through the slot might be its intended purpose but the use of a live well, then plastic bucket to transport fish to the fish house, works the best for me. I would never want to soil or use a zippered tote for this job anyway but that's just me. Hope this review helps someone. I must repeat that this product is constructed very well and for 'your' intended purpose, this may work for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Soft side cooler I love kayak fishing and my uncle had been letting me use on of his columbia coolers. They work great for keeping fish and drinks cold. I love the partition on the inside and pocket on the outside to hold a couple of snacks. Fits great on the back of a hobie and will hold your limit of fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I could not be happier with the cooler. No leaks and keeps ice for 2 days. Don't know if it kept it longer because that's as long as I was gone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did Not Perform I did not receive an incentive for this review although that's what it says. Bought this item in June 2017 from a local sporting store. I took it camping in June two nights and it did OK although the ice melted extremely fast and it was in the shade. I took it camping for two nights this past weekend and this time, the leak proof bags inside leaked and the tote itself leaked water as well. Again, the ice melted very, very fast - in the shade in a shelter. It's too late to return it to the store I bought it at so now it will just sit in the shed. I was excited to get a soft-side cooler that did what it said it would do but disappointed with it's performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great surprise Ordered this product for my wife. We travel long distances with groceries and I wanted something that would keep our frozen food cold and I would not have lug around my hard cooler. To my surprise it was a lot larger than perceived which made me feel a lot better about the price. I am very pleased and considering buying a second one for my fishing/hunting adventures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite a surprise I didn't know how big this cooler was when I bought it. It was cheap and had all the functionality I wanted. It is a very sturdy and tough cooler. It holds ice very well. It is just a little bigger than I thought it would be, but hey bigger is better. I love it. It's a great buy for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kayak fish bag I've been very pleased with this bag. (I have it in white.) The dual liner bags are perfect for separating fish from food and drinks. It's almost four years old and shows no real sign of wear - seams, Velcro, and zippers all still function as they should. Fits in the tankwells of most fishing kayaks, although if you carry a full size crate, it will be tight back there. Won't hold larger pelagics, but for inshore slot sized fish, it's perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Zipper Quality is Poor One zipper on my bag broke during my second use of the bag. So while I can use the other zipper, the bag has a small break in the seal at the top. Prior to the zipper break, it kept my food cold enough, but not as good as a Yeti cooler or as good as promised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! I picked this up at for surf fishing at night. I was concerned about the white color at first but the material and coating they use works really well. The sand, fish slime and muck comes off easily leaving no stains. Just a scrub with dish detergent and a garden hose was all it needed. It's fairly large and not exactly kitchen sink friendly when it comes to clean up. There are two inner liners that can be used to keep your snacks separated from your catch; just watch out and not drop fish in between the liners like I did. The outer material is thick and durable so far, I had it sitting on a rocky break. I find this to be a great value and alternative to some other outdoor oriented cooler bags.
