Well insulated for a collapsible cooler, packs down flat for transportation. Setting up / packing down isn't too difficult. Good handles, nice having cup holders on the top.

Pros

  • Packs flat
  • Well insulated for collapsible cooler
  • Good handles
  • Cup holders
  • Doesn't leak

Cons

  • Not as well insulated as a hard-side cooler
  • Can't be used as seat

This is a great cooler if you want something that packs down and only need to keep food cool for a day or two. If you need to keep things cool beyond that, you're better off with a better insulated hard-sided cooler. 

The zippers are good quality, and the cloth handles on the side make carrying easy. Can't use it as a seat when camping like a hard-side cooler, but it does have cupholder indentations on the top so at least you can use it for that. 

Unpacking it involves folding out the inner liner and velcro-ing it to the top of the sides. Getting the velcro lined up takes a minute but isn't too bad. Packing it is the same in reverse. The liner is one solid piece so it doesn't leak when filled with ice/water. I imagine if you tipped it over too much it would leak through the top/zipper, but it's easy enough to avoid that.

Experience

I've used the Medium size cooler when camping/glamping and for road trips a couple dozen times over 3-4 years. I have several other hard-side coolers for when more insulation or a different size is needed.

Thanks for being the first to review a cooler on Trailspace, Tommy! We only recently added them to the site.
