As one would expect, there is a range quality in soft coolers. The higher-end coolers like the Engel HD30 and Yeti Hopper Two 30 live up to their brand names. However, those aren't the only names on the market these days, and inexpensive coolers can have a lot to offer. The Polar Bear was the proverbial little cooler that could, and it stood up to the competition. The Polar Bear kept our beer cold on hot days, was just as easy to carry as most other models, and had only a slightly smaller capacity than the Yeti Hopper Two 30, and it surprisingly held ice for almost as long. To top off the surprising performance, the Polar Bear comes in at a price that won't cut into your beer funds. Though it was recently dethroned from its position as our Best Buy award winner by the Homitt 30 Cans, the Polar Bear is a pretty great option that deserves your consideration.
