90 The YETI Hopper M20 is the best-in-class backpack cooler I’ve tested. It’s by far the most comfortable and it also has the best ice retention. But it’s also the most expensive, and depending on your use-case, you might not need something as robust as the Hopper M20. If you want the best of the best, get the YETI backpack cooler. But if your budget is tight, look at Icemule.
85 The Icemule Pro XL Cooler is my favorite backpack cooler for watersports. For land-based activities like hikes and scrambling over rocks, I preferred the YETI Hopper M20 because of its harder shell. The Icemule Pro XL cooler didn’t perform as well as the YETI did in my ice test, but it outperformed the other four coolers I tested, and the value-for-money is exceptional.
83 The insulation for the Icemule Pro was nearly as powerful as the YETI Hopper, which I didn’t expect. And the ergonomic design and loads of padding on the back and shoulders makes this an easy cooler to travel with all day. This is the best value for money backpack cooler I’ve found.
82 The YETI Roadie 24 is my top small camping cooler. Compared to other hard-sided coolers in the same size category, the Roadie 24 has better insulation and it’s more practically easy to pack into your car and hit the road. Plus, because it’s around three inches taller and three inches slimmer, it makes for a more convenient seat or table-top when camping.
