Yeti Tundra 45 Hard Cooler

Polarbox classic model portable cooler
This nude-colored, retro-style cooler has a leather strap that adjusts to three positions. It boasts an interior covered with expanded polystyrene, for maximum insulation (and minimum heft).
Coleman 316 Series hard ice chest cooler
This affordable cooler promises to keep ice icy for up to three days. It boasts cup holders on its lid. It can fit up to 80 cans -- and supports up to 250 pounds (if you'd like to sit on it). It's ideal for camping.
Corkcicle Eola bucket cooler bag
Strap your cooler on your back, and go with this bucket-cooler backpack. It comes in six colors, and with an exterior made of either vegan leather or neoprene material, depending on the color you pick. It can hold up to 12 cans.
Coleman retro cooler
Go for the retro look with this Coleman cooler that holds up to 85 cans. It boasts four-day ice retention -- even when the temps hit as high as 90 degrees. Find it in three colors.
Business & Pleasure Co. premium cooler
You'd never know this 1970s-inspired bag is actually a cooler. It's made of a poly-cotton-canvas material that's treated with mold, water and UV coatings. It has a genuine-leather trim, and features exterior slip pockets.
Igloo Overland ice chest cooler
Thanks to rubberized latches, this cooler seals shut tight -- the better to prevent things spilling out. Or, if you prefer, you can close up the cooler with a lock (thanks to its built-in locking plate). The cooler features a bottle opener, UV inhibitors (that help prevent sun damage) and a drain plug (to make emptying melted ice a breeze). It holds up to 81 cans.
