Getting out to where the adventure or the party is is what a soft cooler is all about. Pack-ability and portability are really what makes a soft cooler stand out. The Ice Mule Pro brings all these features together into one easily transported package. A spacious design with a wide-mouth roll-top opening makes the Ice Mule a breeze to fill with your favorite beverage and ice, and the backpack straps make carrying the load easy and comfortable.
Unlike most other coolers in this category such as the YETI Hopper Two 30, the Engel HD30, or the Polar Bear Coolers 24 Pack Soft Cooler, the Mule Pro forgoes the usual bag style handles, and an over-the-shoulder strap for a padded and ventilated backpack setup. This all but eliminates the awkwardness of a long haul. During tests, our reviewers carted the Ice Mule on multi-mile hikes and out to remote climbing areas, and threw it in and out of a truck with ease. Through it, all the roll top stayed securely closed and our beverages wonderfully cold. The simple ease of use in a comfortable and affordable package has earned the Mule Pro a Top Pick Award for carrying long distances.
