IceMule Pro Cooler Review

The IceMule Pro Cooler is a great piece of gear! I know that this blog is called “Explorer Gear”, but this piece of gear is perfect for both the explorer and the non-explorer. I didn’t hear of this company till recently, but I’m hooked. I know that there are plenty of coolers in the market, but this cooler stands above the rest.

For starts, it’s a cooler that can be thrown on your back because of its convenient padded back straps. It fits perfectly on your back so you can carry a heavy load. There are no zippers or snaps, but there are two buckles that allow for the cooler to be folded down and buckled to make it water tight which makes it perfect for keeping your drinks cold all day long!

Another thing that I am very fond of is the ability to roll it up tight and small. This is made possible by the air valve that can be opened as you roll it up to make it compact and able to be put in its carrying case. The cooler keeps cold inside for up to 24 hours depending on the temperature outside. Even once the ice melts, the water doesn’t leak out and the cold stays in.

The IceMule cooler is perfect for days on the beach, on the boat, or for a picnic with your significant other! During the summers and on some weekends, me and my friends will all go fishing at local lakes or ponds. One problem that we have run into is when we are out fishing for most of the day, we need a large enough cooler to keep the fish in. This IceMule cooler does just the trick! The fish stay fresh until we are able to get them filleted and cooked!

All in all this product is perfect for the family outings, the solo fishing trip, or a day at the links! There are many different styles of coolers that IceMule offers. This one is the IceMule Pro Cooler. It comes in three sizes: 20L, 30L, and 40L at various costs beginning at $99.99. All sizes are great, but the 40L gives you the most bang for your buck!
