Rated 5 out of 5áby AaronP Room for the whole family
We recently used our cooler on a multi-day trip through Seattle and Vancouver, BC. The cooler fits a huge amount of food and drink and kept our stuff cool even over night. It cleans easily and we love all the external pockets and stuff pouches. Nice job Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Pattee softpack cooler
I bought the canvas soft pack cooler years ago and loved it, when I went to replace it, I learned that L.L.Bean no longer makes it. So I found the new one. I bought it and found it to be even better than the old model. There is plenty of room, has great side pockets, holds a great deal and with ice packs and ice maintains a cold temperature for a very long time. Also the canvas one got dirty really fast but this one I expect due to the material will not get as dirty.
I am VERY pleased with the product. And the bonus was that I was able to buy it for only a little over $7.00 BECAUSE I had earned coupons from my L.L.Bean charge card! Love the coupons!!! Love L.L. Bean!!

Rated 2 out of 5áby Nerfcat Leaks!
I have purchased 5 of these coolers in all 3 sizes and have not had very good luck with them. They are good looking and convenient but they ALL leak! The PVC liner is easily punctured by multiple items. The cooler still works but it leaves a giant puddle everywhere you put it. Don't bring them inside!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Beachgirl57 Cooler
This is one great cooler. Plenty of cooler AND dry space for those items you don't want on ice. Well designed. Has strap to attach to boat- I put it on the back of my kayak & it's good for all day. If you want a soft cooler this is it!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Dinicnat Great bag
Only used it once and I think I'm going to like it. A large bag with a lot of pockets. It does collapse enough to fit it in a suitcase. Plan to take it on vacation and I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5áby HEB1 It's a great bag.
The first time we used it was to visit my sister & her husband. The minute he saw this cooler he was asking where we got it. The next thing he was reaching for the computer to buy one!

Rated 5 out of 5 great kayaking cooler
Bought this to take on kayak trips and it fits my jackson riviera's rear cargo hold perfectly.
This cooler held an unbelievable amount:
Two 32oz nalgene bottles, two 24 oz bottles of tea, 2 sodas, 4 blue ice bricks, a 2 quart container of grapes, four 6oz snack jars, 3 sandwiches, half a bag of ice (trying to limit weight) and there was still about 6in the top of the cooler for more food and drinks. The inside has a mesh zip pocket in the roof that is good for ice bricks but i opted to pack chips here in hopes they would not get crushed and it worked well.
Additionally the outer pockets were perfect for two bottles of sun tan lotion on the left, my hat on the right, and more chips in the front. The back pocket remained unused but would be perfect for a small towel, a magazine, or a new's paper.
I originally ordered the "cobalt sea" and it felt a little soft to be a true cobalt. Opting for something more masculine I returned it in favor of the "bright orange". The orange is a VERY strong color, but attractive. For more sedate options I recommend the "beechnut" green hue.
My friends on seeing this cooler and gave it a thorough envious once over.
Overall, I could not be more pleased with this cooler.

Rated 5 out of 5áby LLBeanstorehopper exactly what I wanted
This family sized cooler provided everything that I was looking for! I love the green color and all the pockets. It kept everything cold throughout the day. The interior is large enough to hold our snacks, food and drinks for the beach (with room to spare!). I packed our plates, towel, utensils, napkins and a cutting board in the outer zipper and open pockets. The water bottle holders on the side fit our large bottles perfectly. I love the straps with extra reinforcements. This is a great product!

The Softpack Cooler, Family is the perfect size for road trips and keeps food and beverages cold for almost 24 hours. Easy to clean -- just wipe with a damp cloth. Definitely a winner!
