Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Versatile Cooler Ever! I have had this for about 2 weeks and took it to my family reunion. After a 6 hour drive in the back of my van on a 100 degree day the ice packs were not even slightly melted. The portability of it will make you want to smuggly smile while everyone wrestles with their heavy traditional chest style coolers. I really sweated the decision between this and a Yeti cooler. The main reasons I can think of why you would need a yeti over this are if you are a hunter, fisherman, partier or large group car camper. I'm mainly a rock climbing/kayaking day tripper or backpacker. In other words, I never need a place to store a dead animal or 64 beers for 4 days. And if you do need those things this is still great for excursions away from basecamp. I'm really impressed with this cooler and definitely recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect flexible cooler. I am a sailor and I frequently need/want to take drinks and food on boats. Some of the boats don't have coolers/ice chests. Due to the nature of boats hard sided coolers are often impractical. Soft sided coolers are often not effective enough to keep drinks cold. This cooler has kept ice solid during day sails and easily fits twelve bottles and a bag of ice. It's durably constructed and easy to load and carry thanks to the backpack style. I have only used it bit, but so far am extremely happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Want To Sound Too Dramatic But this is seriously the best cooler I've ever owned. I needed something that was high-quality, easy-to-use and obviously, kept things cold. The IceMule does all of these things and then some. It's super well made and keeps things cold for at least 2 days straight. My favorite thing about it, is that I can roll it up when I'm not using it or use it as a dry bag when travelling. Seriously, if you're on the fence about this thing, get it. It rocks and is a worthy $100 gear investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cooler Out There! I absolutely love both of my IceMule Coolers (Classic & Pro). You won't find me on a hike, dive boat or outdoor adventure without one of them! Perfect cooler for your next adventure & it even doubles as a dry bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Sure How We Lived Before IceMule My husband and I do a ton of activities and now bring our IceMule along to all of them. When we travel for surf trips we either use the bag as our personal item and put clothing, etc in it while on the plane. When we get to our destination we'll dump everything out and conveniently use it as a cooler during the trip. We love that it goes on your back, leaving your hands free for doing more important things like carrying your surfboard and taking cool trip selfies (duh!). We also use it for everyday activities like beach trips, dog park, tailgating at Jaguars games (you need a lot of beer for those so you forget how much the Jags suck), going to friends' cookouts, hiking, and front porch sittin'. I've tried other more expensive soft coolers and much prefer the IceMule. It holds ice for a whole day, no zippers, easy to carry with the backpack straps, and easy to rinse out. It's our favorite adventure companion and our go-to gift item for birthdays, mother's and father's day, and weddings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around cooler I have been abusing this thing in numerous environments for a long time now. From a boat cooler, to a venturous back country hike, this thing has performed tremendously. No zipper to worry about. Even floats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reasonably priced, durable and folds down After breaking many hard coolers off roading in my Jeep I decided to try a soft style one. The other brands are very pricy so we gambled on the reasonably priced IceMule. I've taken this pack to Mt Baldy and the Monterey Pops festival where it was dropped, dragged and stood on without any issues. It lives in my Jeep.
