At $400, this is a pricey product. But, if you’ve ever struggled to roll your cooler over uneven ground to your picnic spot or wished you had a cold drink at your backcountry fishing hole or as you float down the river, it might be worth the splurge.
The Yeti Hopper Backflip Cooler comes from the trendy brand that used all sorts of technology to create coolers that are leakproof, insulated and indestructible.
This is Yeti’s first cooler that can be carried as a backpack. It fits 20 cans plus ice and has padded shoulder straps and a hipbelt to make the load feel lighter as you trek to your final destination. It can also function as a regular backpack (without the ice) and fits into the carry-on compartments of most airplanes.
$400 at Mountain Equipment Co-op, 803 10 Ave. S.W., 403-269-2420 and 710, 19587 Seton Cres. S.E., 403-523-7258, mec.ca
