The Specs

  • 25L main compartment holds food/drinks for 3-4 people
  • Fully insulated, leakproof, seamless one-piece PEVA liner
  • Front pockets for plates, utensils, largest can fit 14″ laptop
  • Zippered pocket for small items
  • Side pockets for bottles or umbrella
  • Adjustable padded straps including waist/chest
  • Bottom straps for blanket or jacket
  • Includes waterproof pack cover

The main compartment is insulated and huge, easily fitting drinks and food for four people (specs says it can hold 25 cans).

All that food and drink could get quite heavy so it’s good there are shoulder straps as well as waist and chest straps, and a padded back.

The large front panel has organizer pockets for plates and utensils, with the largest big enough to hold a 14″ laptop.
A smaller zippered pocket is on the front, perfect for keys or a phone. We use it to hold the included rain cover pouch.

Performance

We tested this on a day trip, using it as a car cooler, as we don’t generally hike with a huge picnic feast.

We put some canned beverages and water bottles with a cold pack and small bag of ice and left it to cook in the car on a hot sunny day as we hiked. Everything was still cold when we were done later that day.

Once back home we brought the bag in then totally forgot about it until hours later – but the items that were left were still ice cold.

Overall

This bag ticks all the boxes for everything needed in a backpack cooler – big insulated compartment, plenty of pockets, full straps with padding – plus throws in nice extras like a rain cover and bottom straps for a blanket or jacket.
