Having a cooler makes a day out to the beach or park much more enjoyable. Not only do you have refreshing food and drinks near at hand, but you don’t have to spend money on sidewalk shops that are rather overpriced. The only drawback to having a cooler though is the huge amount of space it takes up.
If you’ve ever had to live in a tiny space, you know how terrible it would be to have a massive plastic cooler sitting around. It would end up having to be an end table of sorts to justify keeping it around. For those of us that need to be somewhat space conscientious, the Kelty Folding Cooler might be a good alternative. It makes a semi-rigid cooler out of molded foam, and it comes with all the normal goodies like cup holders, dual handles, and reinforced feet so it doesn’t scratch up. Its price will vary from $40-$87 depending on whether you choose the 20, 35, of 50 liter option.
