Labor Day is right around the corner, so if you’re headed to the beach, lake, or pool you’re going to need a great cooler to keep your snacks and drinks cool. Below are our top picks that are sure to keep your food chilled. Don’t forget to pick up an ice pack or two.
If you’re trying to get to a beach or pool that requires a bit of a trek the TOURIT Cooler Backpack is the perfect cooler. Put it on your back and start walking. It can hold 25 liters or about 28 cans. Did we mention it’s water resistant?
The CleverMade SnapBasket is great for family beach days. It can hold up to 30 liters and is insulated and collapsible. It’s also honored with the Amazon Choice—which means it’s well-made, highly-rated, and available to ship immediately. If you buy two, you save about five dollars!
The VonShef Foldable Cooler is perfect for packing if you're flying or driving to a location where you’ll need a cooler. It folds down to a slim profile and when you need to use it, the cooler pops up into a full-size 22-liter cooler.
Prefer a classic or simple cooler? Opt for this one from YONOVO. It’s pretty simple—cube shaped, two handles, and a zipper. It’s also the right size for most trips at 26 liters.
If you’re really serious about your cooler or plan to bring a lot of food and drinks, opt for a wheeled cooler like this one from Artic Zone. It’s also ultra-leak-proof and comes with a detachable bottle opener.
If you’re packing a lighter cooler or just want something smaller, then this tote bag cooler from Freddie and Sebbie is for you. It’s also under $15 so if you lose it or it gets ruined, you’re not out of a lot of money. It also offers a lifetime guarantee on its products.
