The weather is finally perfect and we have a three-day weekend coming up — kismet for an outdoor gathering. As you go through your planning checklist and cover the bases of music and grilling, do you have beverage storage taken care of?
To make the most of an outside party, you’ve got to have a cooler that will actually keep its contents cold — don’t be that person serving warm beer.
Yeti coolers are insanely effective at keeping things cool and their prices honestly reflect that. But right now, you can snag a Yeti cooler for 25% off at REI.
This hardside cooler has extra-thick walls with pressure-injected insulation, making it incredibly resistant to outside temperatures. The Roadie has an 18.9-liter capacity that holds 12 cans and it’s constructed similarly to a whitewater kayak, so you know it’s durable and long-lasting. The lid seals shut with a freezer-quality gasket and durable latches ensure the lid stays closed. The Yeti Roadie 20 is available in seafoam, tan, and white.
The Tundra 45 is a 32.9-liter cooler that can fit 28 cans with room for ice. It fits into most vehicle backseats and trunks, but is big enough to hold all the fixings for a barbecue. The cooler has three inches of insulation that keeps food and drinks cold for days. The Tundra’s lid also seals shut and stays closed with latches. It has haul handles on each end to make it easier to carry for two people. This cooler is available in seafoam, tan, and white.

The Hopper Flip is a soft cooler, but it’s still durable with a waterproof and tough-as-nails shell. It stands up to punctures, mildew, and UV rays. The wide, flip-top opening allows easy loading and access into the 11.7-liter cooler. It then closes with a leak-proof zipper. The cooler is equipped with a wide, ergonomic shoulder strap for easy and comfortable transportation. The Hopper Flip is available in charcoal and fog gray.
This soft cooler is designed to be taken on the go. Its tapered shape makes it easier to carry than the original Hopper and it has a detachable shoulder strap and three sets of reinforced handles. The 30-liter cooler can hold 24 cans, which is impressive for how compact it is. The Hopper Two is also designed with a leak-proof zipper and has thick insulation to keep its contents chilled. The cooler is available in field tan and fog gray.
If you want a large cooler that’s still easy to transport, the Tundra Haul is your choice. The 47.6-liter capacity can hold 45 cans and keep them cold for days. The cooler has thick walls with two inches of insulation and the lid features a freezer-quality gasket seal. The outer shell is durable and the Tundra Haul has two wheels and a hinge handle, making it easy for one person to tow. It’s available in seafoam, tan, and white.
