How To Choose A Cooler
There are several important factors to consider before making your cooler selection. You may want to ask yourself, “What kind of activity will I be doing?”, “How far will I need to transport the cooler?”, and “How much do I intend to put in the cooler?” to ensure you purchase a cooler that suits your specific needs.
Extended trips, tailgates, and events with large groups call for a cooler that can accommodate sufficient amounts of food, drink, and ice. With lengthy ice retention capabilities, size options up to 205 quarts, and insulated sealing lids, hard-sided coolers are best suited for the job. They often offer drain plugs to easily drain the cooler of water and ice, heavy-duty wheels to help with transport over short distances, and insert trays or dividers to keep you organized.
For the most rugged of adventures, check out the YETI Tundra series coolers. These heavy-duty coolers have non-slip rubber feet and a locking lid system to protect against the elements.
Suitable for shorter outings or when you’re running low on space, soft-sided coolers are compact and easily transportable. They feature durable zipper closures to effectively lock in the cold and keep your food and drinks at the perfect temperature. Designed with a pliable fabric exterior and shoulder, sling, or backpack straps, these coolers are lightweight and comfortable enough to carry longer distances.
