The 7 best coolers to never stay dry on vacation
We all want to go on vacation to remote beaches and corners away from the crowds to enjoy a well-deserved rest day without any disturbances. And if to achieve this it is necessary to do a few more kilometers to reach that hidden cove that almost no one knows, well, they are done.
The problem is that in exchange for that peace you have to pay a very high price. For example, the lack of beach bars. Come on, if you get hungry or you fancy a very cold beer, you’d better be proactive and bring enough supplies from home. And that, whether we like it or not, happens to load yes or yes with a portable refrigerator wherever you go. There are no more alternatives.
Obviously, the hassle of walking carrying several extra kilos is much more bearable if you are a large group of friends and you can alternate the load in turns. But still, it is still very uncomfortable.
Fortunately, there are several portable refrigerators on the market that offer very practical solutions to reduce this effort considerably. Electric, in backpack format, with handle … Models in which you deserve to invest all that extra money that you are going to save by not having to consume in places on the beach with oversized prices. A matter of priorities.
THE MOST ELEGANT
Just for its careful exterior design, it is worth giving it a try. But there are many more qualities that make this VOGSHOW refrigerator unique. For example, that it is carried as a backpack, which makes it much more comfortable and ergonomic to walk whatever it takes to that secret corner carrying extra weight. Also, inside the food, they keep the cold much longer since its exterior is made of 900D black nylon fabric while the interior lining is food grade PEVA insulation padded with 8 mm EPE foam. Its capacity is 30L, enough so that you do not miss anything on your getaways.
If we tell you that this refrigerator has a capacity of 56 liters, it is quite possible that you will be scared. Yes, the size is fine for large groups, but those dimensions could only be moved without difficulty by a Schwarzenegger-type bodybuilder. Well, or you if you’ve been hitting the gym hard these months. Although you do not need to have been crushed much because this particular Coleman model has a handle and very resistant wheels that make the dream of not having to pretend that you lift more weight than you can come true. Come on, you just have to pull it like a suitcase to get to your dream paradise.
