When we first saw this Fishpond Blizzard Soft Cooler at the Outdoor Retailer Show, I was immediately attracted by its good looks, by the color scheme and the fabric exterior. What I didn’t realize was that not only is this a great looking small cooler, it also collapses when not in use.
Open, it’ll hold up to 24 cans with minimal ice between the cans, or 18 cans comfortably with lots of ice.
On the top is a “quick open” insulated flap that flips up in an instant when you just can’t wait to grab a cold one. Two full zippers enable the top to open on three sides for loading.
A rear zipper pocket can hold items securely that you can’t take a chance on loosing. The front has an easy open Velcro latched pocket for quick access items. A shoulder strap with pad makes the cooler easy to carry.
This was one of the products we saw during the 2014 Outdoor Retailers Show earlier this year, and we wanted to double back and present those items that actually turned out to be as good as we thought they would be. Now that they’ve stood up during our road trips, we can recommend them unequivocally.
