Can Capacity: How many cans can the cooler hold? This is important if you’ve got a long weekend planned or if you’ve got a lot of people coming on your trip with you. Check here for that information.
Waterproof: Is the cooler waterproof? This refers mostly to the outside material, so that water doesn’t seep into your other items or the outside isn’t damaged by water. We’ll let you know if the exterior is waterproof here.
Ice Pack: Does the cooler come with an ice pack? Most of the coolers on this list won’t come with one, but there are some that might include an ice pack to keep your cans cold and avoid using ice.
Weight: The weight of the cooler as described here refers to a cooler that is completely empty. Obviously, the weight will increase when you add ice and cans to the cooler, so keep that in mind.
Size: The dimensions of the cooler can tell you where it’s going to fit when you’re packing for camping. It can also help you determine how big the cooler is when you want to purchase it for food instead.
