If you’re looking for a deal and want the best price on a cooler that you can get…
Otherwise, stick around and we’ll share the winners for all kinds of coolers.
It’s lightweight (under 30 pounds when empty), but the durable wheels make the weight irrelevant.
Best of all, it can hold 185 cans! That’s awesome! And it will keep your cooler items cool for days.
Great for tailgating or the beach!
This YETI Tundra 75 is ideal for fishing and other marine needs. The size is perfect, keeps cooler items cold for a LONG LONG time…. and can also hold about 2 cases of beer.
While we really are a HUGE fan of YETI coolers, when it comes to the best cooler for camping, we’re gonna have to agree that this Pelican ProGear 65 is really best for camping. (we compared YETI vs Pelican coolers here).
It’s bear-resistant, leakproof, has a lifetime guarantee, and keeps ice for TEN DAYS.
This Pelican cooler is perfect for long stretches of time camping when you NEED your ice to last and your cooler items to say cold and fresh.
Can be heavy tho – this is not a one-person, quick trip cooler.
This Bison Brute Box Cooler is waterproof and leakproof and keeps cooler items cold for about 5 days. Still a little heavy for one person to manage, but this is one heck of a good cooler.
We’re also a big fan of this ORCA cooler – and the Outdoor Recreation Company of America company as a whole.
All their coolers are 100% made in the USA and use 100% American-made parts – PLUS, they donate a portion of each sale for various conservation groups here in the United States.
This ORCA cooler is GREAT for hunting (and fishing). It’s a 40-quart cooler that weighs about 24 pounds before it’s filled. Keeps ice and cooler items cold for many days.
This Coleman Steel-Belted Cooler is a great choice for single-day cooler needs. It’s made of solid stainless steel and has handles that make it super easy to carry. Holds about 85 cans or so depending how you pack your cooler and can size.
This Koolatron W75 cooler is great for road trips and for truckers (also called “thermoelectric coolers”). It doesn’t use ice – it plugs into the 12v cigarette lighter in your car or truck and keeps things cold for as long as you keep it plugged in.
The wheels on the cooler are a nice touch that make it much easier to move around.
There is no other soft-sided cooler that is better than this YETI Hopper 30!
Completely leak-proof and waterproof and will keep your cooler items and ice cold for a long time.
Great for one person to carry around – holds about 18 cans or so.
We’re sure not everyone wants to pay that price for a YETI Hopper soft-side cooler so here is a very high-quality and inexpensive alternative to the Hopper.
This Soft Cooler from Polar Bear is a great option that works really well. Holds about 24 cans. Designed to last for a day.
Comes in many colors, but we really like this camo cooler.
If price is a big factor when picking a cooler, this Esky Cooler from Coleman is a fantastic cooler that is absolutely worth the price tag.
It’s a big cooler, has a lot of great qualities, is American-made and comes with a 6-year warranty.
