Listen—everyone likes to enjoy nature, but you know how to best enjoy nature? With a drink in your hand. Whether you're gearing up for a day in the park, on the beach, or cracking open a beer at the end of a long hike, a portable cooler is your friend. The problem, of course, is that so many portable coolers fall short of their duties. You use them a couple of times and they start to leak. They claim to hold endless amounts of drinks but are totally unwieldy to carry. Enter the IceMule Cooler ($60), which is sturdy and easy to carry.
Fill it with 12-15 cans and ice—it won't leak because it has reinforced seams created to combat exactly that. And because it's made to be carried like a backpack, you won't find yourself struggling to carry it to the beach like a tote bag. With webbed pockets on the outside, you can store other stuff like bottle openers and other booze acoutrements. Cheers, you hauled it, you earned it.
