"We use this backpack almost every day," a satisfied customer said. "We're always hiking to new river spots and we love this backpack. We're gonna buy another one. It's light-weight. It's waterproof. We always fill it with ice and beverages and it holds the ice really well. It's not as efficient at keeping the ice cold as their big black backpack. But it does the job. I love how lightweight it is and how many pockets it has. It even has a bottle opener on the side. It's our favorite. One of the best things I've ever bought on Amazon. Seriously."

"I bought this for a trip to New Mexico when daytime temps were about 104 degrees," said a five-star fan. "I wanted to keep bottled water and snacks in the car, but knew they'd be scalding hot and/or melted after going hiking for hours. I've never had much luck with soft side coolers, but chose to give this a try since it packs flat and was a good size. I was so glad I did!! I'd fill the cooler with ice when leaving the hotel around 8 a.m., pack it with drinks and snacks and head out for the day. The cooler sat in the car (which reached well over 130 degrees inside) until about 6 p.m. when I'd get back to the hotel. In 10 hours, only about half of the ice had melted each day and everything inside stayed extremely cold. There was even one day I didn't fill it with ice and just put cold drinks inside and left them in the car all day. Everything still stayed nice and cool!"
