Best Camping Cooler 2017

I am so glad I chose this cooler. I was doing a lot of research on Amazon and decided on this one when a reviewer said that her husband takes his to work everyday and tends to wear his coolers out after some use. She said that this cooler has really held up well. I tend to agree. It seems very well made and where the straps connect seems very reinforced which is the area that failed me on my previous work cooler. I don’t see this happening for a long time with this one. There are several pockets which is nice to put items in that you don’t want in the main compartment.
