How to Find a Heavy Duty Cooler That's Just the Right Size

Nothing beats a day on the lake or riverbed, particularly if there’s fishing involved. Let’s be real though, some of us like fishing, but not the time between the bites. For the ones who like to add a little more entertainment into their fishing routine, finding the right cooler to bring on your next lakeside adventure can be a bit of a challenge. Luckily, that’s where IceMule comes in.

Whether you’re an avid fly fisherman who’s hunting their latest trophy trout, or a lake troller whose boat is as (or more, let’s be real) important as a house, the value of a heavy duty cooler is impossible to overlook. Having a cooler that can keep your beverages chilled and your trout on ice should be a premier priority for all lovers of the outdoors, all the more for those out on the water everyday.

Heavy Duty Coolers Come In Sizes for Every Occasion

To help you avoid the purchase panic when it comes to top-of-the-line heavy duty coolers, we’ve created a quick guide for purchasing the right thing for your style and trip.

Heavy Duty Coolers For Party Packers

So you want to load up a case or two of your favorite beverage and still be able to navigate the sandy beaches and rocky stream beds. That’s exactly what the IceMule Pro X-Large was designed for. You can carry this heavy duty cooler on your back like your favorite multi-day pack, so your hands are free to bring your fishing rod and tackle box, and to catch yourself on those slick rocks by the shore.

We know what you’re thinking: the back sweat, the damp air, the thin lining of a backpack can’t possibly retain the ice required to chill your favorite brews. However, the smart dry-bag style design, inflatable outer layer, and cutting edge insulation means that with a recommended 2:1 ice-to-can ratio, all of IceMule’s backpack coolers have the power to keep your goods cold for up to 24 hours.

Once the beer is gone, throw the catch of the day into your cooler to make sure it stays chilled during the ride home. After all, there's no party like a fishing party because a fishing party don't stop.

Heavy Duty Coolers For Hard To Reach Stream Beds

Ever craved a brew at high-altitude, but just couldn’t fit it in with your fly fishing gear? We get it, navigating those alpine streams can be tricky, particularly if you’re already concerned about dropping your gear.

For the hike-in types, the medium-sized IceMule Classic is the perfect answer to the challenge of navigating the trails with all of your equipment in tow. Keep your sandwiches cool for you and your family or bring a 6-pack along to help the time pass between bites. With 15 liters of space, this fisherman’s dream pack is of ample size to trek along your catch and your snacks.

Heavy Duty Coolers For The Hardcore Hike-Ins

For those who need an extreme answer to the question of how to get outside, the IceMule Boss is a 30-liter juggernaut that weighs only 7.5 pounds empty. Venture out for hours or days at a time while ensuring your goods stay cool and collected.

With cushioned hip belts and backpack suspension system borrowed from backpacking gear, you can focus on the scenery instead of the hauling, and gives you freedom to pack your brews and your gear with no sacrifices needed.

Heavy Duty Coolers for Parents

It has all the same features as larger IceMule coolers, but with a petit size and urban styling that make it the perfect playmate for trips to the park, rooftop picnics, adventures to the museum, daily commutes, field trips, and more.
