The thermal inner shell boasts a can capacity of 12. That’s where this cooler actually understates its function, though. Cabela’s is modest about how much this cooler can pack away. I happen to have this cooler and have been using it for months now, 4-6 times per week. In reality, you can neatly stack 12 cans on the bottom of the bag and then realistically stack 12 more right on top, and still have room for ice. Or you can stack 12 in the bottom and put several large food containers on top. A mesh pocket on the inside of the zip close lid allows you to chill items without making contact with the ice - a good place to keep a sandwich so it doesn’t get soggy. While the overall dimensions are not that large (8.3"H x 11.2"W x 6.5"D) the packing capacity of this cooler is pretty impressive. It’s great for a lunch box on the go, a snack and beverage bag that you take to your hunting blind, a goodie bag you bring along to your tailgate party, or whatever activity you happen to be doing. Throw it in the boat, strap it to your ATV or Side-by-Side, put it in the back of your truck, tuck it under the seat, or sling it over your shoulder - this cooler goes anywhere.
On the outside of the bag, there are several storage pockets. One either side of the cooler, mesh pockets can be found as well as a large zippered pocket on the front. Instead of being sewn on, the padded shoulder strap is connected to the cooler with clips which eliminates weak spots and ripped shoulder straps when the cooler is under constant weight.
You can pick up the Cabela's 12-Can Soft-Sided Cooler in three different colors - Gray, Blue and Cabela’s O2 Octane. It’s also available in three different sizes, as well. You can get the 12-can for $19.99, the Cabela's 18-Can Soft-Sided Cooler for $24.99 and the Cabela's 30-Can Soft-Sided Cooler for $29.99.
A cooler is a staple piece of gear that every outdoorsman needs to have and the versatility of these Cabela’s Soft Sided Coolers hits all the high notes for portability, function and more. Be sure to check them out!
