Peak summer temps may be behind us, but there’s plenty of cooler season left. In fact, cold snacks and dry goods are popular year-round.

No matter the season or activity — whether watching a sunset, reaching the peak of a mountain, or simply enjoying the outdoors — ICEMULE Coolers believes memories are made even more special with a cold drink in hand.

From single-person daypacks to big haulers with foam insulation, ICEMULE backpack coolers use waterproof materials to keep ice, drinks, and snacks cool inside. And when the weather acts up, the coolers can act as dry bags to protect clothes and valuables from the elements, according to the brand.

You can wear some of them like a sling, and others have a backpack harness to hold things close and secure on your day’s journey. But the brand designed all of them keep to your drinks and snacks cool — and support good times along the way.

A more sustainability-minded take on the existing Juant, the R-Jaunt Cooler is built from recycled PET fabric to reduce plastic waste and save energy.

ICEMULE says the 20L size can haul 22 cans on ice and keep them cold for hours thanks to the Jaunt’s insulating foam layer. The compact design and simple straps make it portable for day trips, picnics, and other outdoor activities where you want to carry drinks and snacks.

The roll-top closure allows for easy access to all that’s inside, and there’s an exterior pocket for securing other small items.

With a 32-can-plus-ice capacity, this pack cooler lets you carry plenty of food and drinks along with you.

It has all the functions of smaller sizes, but let this Realtree pattern serve as a reminder that hunting season is still cooler season.

The ICEMULE BOSS took top honors as the best overall backpack cooler in our 2023 roundup.

Beyond the multiday ice retention, this oversized cooler backpack has a suspension system and lots of options for dry storage in outside pockets and straps.

Our reviewer praised the pack’s “double-padded mesh shoulder straps and hip pads plus an adjustable hip belt and sternum strap. The pack has a burlier build for rugged adventures: It can handle being strapped down to a whitewater raft or canoe.”

Although not a cooler per se, this bottle is still chill. Made of Pro Grade stainless steel, it’s built to withstand the toughest of activities and fits standard cupholders so it can come along on your everyday adventures. The vacuum insulation technology can keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours, according to the brand.

The built-in straw lid adds ease of use while the nonslip silicone bottom should help keep it from slipping on slick surfaces.
