Before you grab a bunch of drinks for a trip, you’re going to need a way to keep them cold. Nobody likes to chug down a bottle of warm water on a summer’s day. Simply placing your drinks into a backpack just doesn’t cut it even if you include an ice pack. The reason for this is that backpacks and many other containers don’t have an insulated lining. Heat passes right through the material with ease. What you really need is a wheeled portable cooler. When your needs become too big for a small carry-cooler, a wheeled one allows you to bring along loads of food goods without hassle or stress. One great model is the 38 Quart Igloo Wheelie Cool Cooler.
