A barbecue’s best friend.
Barebones Living’s sturdy coolers will take you from a picnic for two in the park to a full-scale barbecue blowout on the beach. Each cooler is made of a thick nylon that is water resistant, durable, and easy to clean. With leather detailing and muted, neutral colors, the coolers won’t be ones that you’ll quickly hide away—they’re handsome and rugged and deserve to stick around for the party. There are five sizes available, each with its own covetable qualities.
The Trekker Cooler is the smallest, holds 6 cans (or a bunch of sandwiches, or a salad that travels well, and will keep cold for up to 12 hours. It’s flexible, foldable, and packable, the mouth opens wide for easy retrieval, and it has one short handle to grab and go.
The next biggest size is the Pathfinder Cooler, which holds 16 cans or a 6-pack of bottles. It keeps cold ones cold for up to 24 hours, and has a semi-rigid internal frame so it sits up tall. It also has a removable liner that can be rinsed and zipped back in, storage pockets, and both short and long handles.
The Rambler Cooler features comfortable, adjustable backpack-style straps that let you tote around up to 20 cans with ease. The semi-rigid internal frame can stand up on its own when set down, but is also designed to flex and move as you go. The removable liner is a cinch to clean (just rinse, dry, and zip back in) and the built-in bottle opener zipper pull means you’re always just seconds away from cracking a cold one.
The Explorer Cooler is the middle child, holding 36 cans and keeping your goods cold for up to 48 hours. A flat bottom and internal frame keep the cooler sturdy while you fill it and unpack it. There’s a zippable, removable liner for easy cleaning, a short and a long strap, and plenty of storage pockets with magnetic closures.
The Porter Cooler will feed a crowd, and we mean it! It’s on wheels with a retractable handle, so you’ll shuttle your goods with ease (fill it with up to 96 cans). Everything will stay cold in there for up to 72 hours, and like its relatives, has a removable liner for snappy cleaning.
