Takeaway: Stylish, spacious, durable, waterproof, and lightweight.

The cooler bag when folded flat and measures 12 x 9 x 4 inches but unfolds to its full height of 9 inches quickly and easily for a 15 liter, or nearly 4 gallon, capacity. On top of the bag you'll find a carry handle and on either side are expandable mesh pockets, as well as a sewn on bottle opener. Inside the front pocket you'll find the included three to five foot adjustable shoulder strap with sliding shoulder pad, which clips onto the strap hangers on the sides. The exterior of the bag features a durable 600D fabric that's tear and wear resistant while the inner lining is made from a waterproof PEVA vinyl. Sandwiched between these layers is 8mm of foam insulation which helps to maintain the temperature inside the bag, whether you put cold or hot food in it.

The zippers have an outer protective shield which covers the teeth while you zip it up and this helps keep water from leaking through them. The bag has a surprising amount of room inside and can fit up to 18 12-ounce cans or 24 mini 8-ounce cans. I was able to comfortably fit twelve 12-ounce cans in the bottom, with some room left on top for ice, which I poured right into the cooler bag since the inner lining is waterproof. I left the bag out on a blisteringly hot 95-degree for one hour, ensuring that the bag was zipped up to keep the cool air in and warm air out. Over that time, two ice cube trays worth of ice had mostly melted but there were still, amazingly, a couple partial cubes left. Most of it ended up as water in the bottom of the bag, though it was still ice cold, and none of that water leaked through the lining to the outside of the bag, which is pretty neat.

This makes the bag perfect for picnics, day trips to the beach, or even just grocery shopping, if you're buying frozen items on hot days. Just pop in a couple ice packs with your food and the bag will keep the contents cold and help prevent defrosting or spoilage for a couple hours. You can also use the bag for hot or warm foods, and it'll keep your prepared foods hot and ready to serve, whether you're packing lunch for work, going to a potluck, or just picking up takeout from a restaurant. Just remember to allow any oven-hot containers to reach a safe handling temperature before putting it in the bag, and be sure to follow food safety guidelines if you plan on leaving prepared or perishable foods in the bag for more than a couple hours.

When it's time to clean the bag you can just dump any water that's inside, wipe the bag down, and let it air dry overnight to avoid odors, mildew, and mold. I love that this bag is big enough for an entire bottle of wine, a block of cheese, and a few other goodies, and you can place your non-temperature sensitive foods or accessories in the mesh side pockets. The zippered pocket on the front is perfect for napkins and flatware. All in all, I'd say I'm pretty happy with the performance of this cooler bag. It's got a modern and stylish look that's trendier than a lunchbox, and it's the perfect size for packing enough food for one to four people for a meal on the go.
