    Good price. I have one, the wife bought it for me. I like it but would not have paid what she did.

    Most don't like the way it opens. Zipper will do a number on your arm. The square top ones solve the issue. Nice cooler nonetheless

    Aren't you supposed to read reviews before you buy it?

    Good soft cooler. Does not leak. Hard to get in and out. Would recommend the medium size as the small doesn't quite do it on volume.

    Ha ha. So true. Plus it does not hold ice for $hit. It's probably worth $165 though. I have one and it's the least used cooler in the bunch.

    I use mine all the time.  It is easy to toss in the truck or jeep and it doesn't leak when it tips over.  It keeps stuff cold for about 2 days with a moderate amount of ice.  I don't pre-chill it like hard coolers, but then I don't use it for weeklong events.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    And the jagged zippers from hell (jzh's) are easy to solve.  Set cooler perpendicular to a wall.  Push far edge towards the wall.  Cooler mouth opens nice and wide and you can reach in. (In a pinch, you can use your leg).


    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    It makes a great airline carry on. I take it on fishing trips to Minnesota.

    Lol...  I'm using now for an overnight trip... small footprint and easy to carry..  was able to put 4 beer bottles, bottle of moscato, 6 Capri suns and several waters with maybe 1/3 of ice.

    Gonna use it for fishing and when we go wine tasting.  Just hope it lasts a while before breaking.

  • Just keep it trim to your body and you probably won't have trouble with anyone who wants to snatch it.  ;)

    I will assume the Moscato and Capri Suns are for the kids. What are you going to do when the 4 beers are done?
