When I went to school at Appalachian State up in the mountains of NC, all the cool kids had Mountainsmith lumbar packs to take to class or just look cool in general. I got my first Mountainsmith backpack the first summer I worked as a camp counselor at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado. 13 years later, my pack is still going strong!
I was looking for a new pack for my upcoming honeymoon to Argentina and stumbled upon their “Cooler Cube”. I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for the perfect cooler. I have come to find that canvas coolers are generally more versatile and insulate longer than regular plastic coolers, so I was really psyched when I found that Mountainsmith is now making a medium size cooler.
This cooler is large enough to fit about a six pack of beers, a few waters, 2 sub sandwiches and some fruit. In other words, it is great for 2 people to take to a tailgate, someone’s house to watch the game, a day on the boat, or on a picnic or short hike.
The coolest part about the cooler cube for me is the fold out cup holders. Our boat doesn’t have cup holders in the cockpit, and whenever we go to tack (change sail direction) or get hit by a big wave, your beer spills allover the cockpit. The cooler cube is great because it is small enough to fit in the cockpit of our sailboat without being in the way and also has 4 cupholders. In addition, the cooler cube has lots of cool pockets and compartments and a built in bottle opener on the key chain. This cooler is love at first sight!
