Modern innovation at its finest.
First there was the wheel, then there was seedless watermelon, and now the geniuses at IceMule developed a convenient way to haul massive amounts of canned beverages from the car to fishing holes, climbing crags, beach getaways, and other outdoorsy destinations with the Pro 20L Cooler. Essentially a backpack for beer, the Pro 20L Cooler's PolarLayer insulation and welded seams let you fill the pack with ice and drinks to keep beverages ice cold by the time you reach your destination. The AirValve lets you drain the pack's melted ice so it doesn't dampen your body on the trail.
- Think of it as a cooler with backpack straps
- Waterproof, durable shell with insulated foam for cool drinks
- Roll-top closure offers the same watertight protection as dry bags
- Unique AirValve lets you drain water at a moment's notice
- Padded shoulder straps and ventilated back panel for a comfy hike
- Item #IMC0004

Coolest cooler ever!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Occasionally the Dyrt will offer gear to test out and demo on a camping trip. I was lucky to have the opportunity to test and review theICEMULE Pro size Large 23L backpack cooler https://icemulecoolers.com/collections/pro-coolers/products/the-icemule-pro-large This cooler is amazing! I was skeptical at first. I let my teenage daughter use it prior to this trip on a beach outing and it is now the new favorite cooler for these girls! They raved about it! The ICEMULE Pro 23L held 10 pounds of ice and 10+ beverages and our food that needed kept cold. There was still ice In the bottom 2 1/2 days later when we returned home. The website says this will hold an 18 pack of beer, I don’t doubt that. Since we were camped at a pack In site, being able to pack In our cold stuff like a backpack was a great feature! We were even able to pack everything out between the two of us In just one trip! Normally a cooler of this capacity would require a singe trip for 1 or possibly 2 people. The cooler seals by rolling the opening down and buckling it closed. No zippers or latches. There is an air vent you can blow into to create additional insulation for the cooler. The cooler also folds/rolls down to a compact size when not in use. This cooler is easy to use, a dream to pack anywhere you need a cooler, and most Importantly: keeps stuff COLD! This is now an every trip favorite item! And they are currently on sale (20% off!) on the ICEMULE website!
Decent, but only good for specific uses

Bought to make taking into our daughter's softball tournaments, but not a good option to open constantly. What it does good is cans. Bottles in this is a bad idea. If you like a frozen hand, it's your bag because to get to your drinks, etc, you're going to have to DIG DEEP. Everything settles to the bottom (no padding, so why I say NO bottles). When unrolled open, the top is REALLY TALL. It's like keeping a case of drinks in the bottom of a 13 gallon trash can. BUT...if you kayak, mountain bike, have little space in your house when it's not in use and you got cans to take for a day trip...it's the one.
It is too thick of a material to actually be leakproof. Looks like a dry bag, but it WILL leak if you leave it upside down. That is REALLY hard to do though. It does like a weeble wobble and stands upright. Used it to haul ice to our campsite and keep drinks separate from food. Ice in it last pretty much ONLY 24 hours. Sounds like I don't like it...but I do. Love it. It rolls up tiny and is int he top of my closet. I can chuck a zip lock and some drinks in it and run out the door. Haul ice to a campsite or use two frozen litres of bottled water and take other stuff for overnight trips or hotel stays. Oh...and it sweats, but not on the side where the straps are, so your back doesn't get wet.
This is the best soft-sided cooler

I love this product. It holds alot, it's easy to carry, it's well-made and designed, (no zippers to bust), and it keeps things COLD. Most recently, I used it to bring beers out to car camp at the trailhead of a one night backpacking trip. We didn't finish the beers, and I was thrilled to find that the beers were STILL cold when we got back out of the woods, 48 hours after the thing had been packed. Nothing beats having a cold beer waiting for you when you get out of the woods.
If they had a 5L version, I would get that to put in my pack on backpacking trips. I might still do it with the 10L, but that might be too big
Easiest way to haul a cooler.

I got an Ice Mule for our trip to Hawaii. It was an awesome purchase and I would highly recommend them.
I hauled a full bag of ice, along with beer, waters and two large containers for Mai tai's. As heavy as it was, being able to throw in onto my back was super comfortable and the easiest I have ever had hauling a cooler over the terrain we were crossing.
I have a Yeti 40L Hopper and while it is very nice, I think I would recommend the Ice Mule if someone didn't want to drop that much money for something that isn't as easy to haul around.
The quality is very good and if you want to get out in the wilderness and bring a cooler.. This thing is the way to go .
Can i be notified when IceMule cooler is back in stock
