Canyon Coolers is looking to partner with new adventurers. Its Adventure Grant program will pay you to embark on your next trip in exchange for producing content around its product. The company, which builds stout, premium coolers, already has a strong content marketing background, but is looking to spread the wealth around.

If you need inspiration, head to the " Stories” section of Canyon’s website. It’s clear that no sport is left out, no idea too weird, and no destination too remote. All you have to do is fill out the application and sell Canyon on your imagination, skills, and dedication.

If it selects your trip, the company will supply money and gear support in exchange for photos, videos, and written stories that highlight its products. It is not looking for any old trip story either. If the website’s stories are anything to go by, a full-on bugout will carry more weight than a weeklong excursion.

Canyon coolers are thick-walled, high-end deals that compete with the likes of Yeti and Pelican. We’ve got a couple of them banging around the shop, and they’re our go-to for day trips and weekend excursions far from a fridge. They command premium prices, and come in sizes suited for a weekend away or a month in the backcountry. There are hard-sided and soft-sided options, depending on your needs. Canyon backs them all with a no-hassle “S—t happens” warranty, which means if some evil, or bear, befalls your cooler, the company has your back.
