The ‘Just Right’ Approach to Sizing Your Heavy Duty Coolers

The ‘Just Right’ Approach to Sizing Your Heavy Duty Coolers

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.

Fish In Style: The ‘Just Right’ Approach to Sizing Your Heavy Duty Coolers

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.

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.

Heavy Duty Coolers For The Party Packers

The cooling geniuses (they exist) at IceMule know 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 why they made the IceMule Pro X-Large. You can carry the IceMule Pro on your back, so your hands are free to bring your fishing rod and tackle box, and to catch yourself on those slick rocks before your Coors go back to where they came from. 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. The team at IceMule has thought of that too (we told you they’re geniuses). 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.

Heavy Duty Coolers For The Hard To Reach Streambeds

 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, IceMule’s classic medium size 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 the ones who need the extreme answer to their wilderness needs (think 3 miles in, 3 miles out), 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. Carrying a cooler has never been this comfortable. It’s cushioned hip belts and backpack suspension system allows you to focus on the scenery instead of the hauling, and gives you freedom to pack your brews and your gear with no sacrifices needed.

Whether you purchase the Classic, Pro, or the Boss, the comfort, convenience, and durability of IceMule’s heavy duty coolers will revolutionize the way you hike, fish, and camp. Need a cooler to store in your truck? Traditional heavy duty coolers require heavy duty storage space. Roll up your IceMule cooler and stick it under the seat until you need it again, or hang it right alongside your fishing poles. It’s as easy as that.
