Pros Very durable construction, excellent insulation, useful handles and features, comfortable shoulder strapExtremely durable, easy to use, great insulationExtremely durable, easy to use, great insulationLid opens fully for easy access, very stable, excellent insulation, comparatively very low costRelatively inexpensive for the whole package, extremely easy to carry when full
Cons Zippered exterior pocket not waterproof, very largeVery expensive, awkward to carry when full for longer distancesVery expensiveBoxy construction is less comfortable to carry, zipper is very hard to pullAwkward if not fully packed, not as insulative as other coolers
Bottom Line If you’re looking for the best soft cooler on the market today, look no further than this outstanding model from Engel.Durable and packed with superb insulation, this model is very expensive, but you pay for what you get.The best performing personal-sized cooler around.If you’re on the prowl for a cooler that will keep your drinks cold for days and not clean out your bank account, you’ve found a winner!This easy-to-carry option is a bit awkward when not fully packed and lacks some insulation.
