Our parents used to lug giant Tupperware style coolers across the beach and to the park (if they were lucky, said cooler came with built-in wheels), just to keep sandwiches cold.
We are not our parents.
These days, portable coolers come in every variation you can dream up, from backpacks to mountain bike saddlebags.
The IceMule Pro Cooler may just be the coolest one yet (no pun intended). Easy to carry and big enough to transport up to 36 cans of the good stuff, this beefy cooler is made from 1,000-denier tarp material with seams rated to handle 65 pounds, a heavy duty construction with an inner layer that's two times thicker than most soft coolers.
The IceMule Pro Cooler has a padded, ventilated backpack strap system that makes it comfortable to carry, and uses a foolproof, roll-down seal that makes it watertight, meaning that it keeps ice in and air and water out, so it can double as a dry bag when you need it.
Beer stays cold for up to 24 hours, and when you're done drinking, you can either use the built-in air valve to release the layer of insulation air, roll up the bag and place it in its included stuff sack, or dump your ice and fill the IceMule with your gear for waterproof storage on your way home.
The IceMule Pro Cooler has three sizes: the Large 20-liter, Xtra Large 30-liter and the Xtra Xtra Large, a 40-liter monster of a cooler. The mid-size Xtra Large can fit 24 cans and ice, or a whole lot of Mom's sandwiches.
