Our Story


Founder Ryan Carden is a life long adventurer who took to the sea for a career as a Master Mariner.  It was there that an idea turned into an industry shaking innovation, and the formation of Gnarwhal Outdoors.  Our mission is to develop a brand that brings true innovation to the outdoor gear market.  First up, the cooler industry, where lack of imagination has lead to stale product lines and gimmicks. Through the use of our Patent Pending technology, our Beacon Series Coolers are the start of a cooler revolution, and we won't be stopping there.  Join the Gnarwhal Outdoors team as we embark on an epic adventure.
