  • 18 L Soft Cooler Tote is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome cooler! I received a sample Hydro Flask 18 Liter Soft Cooler Tote in Black for free from TryItSampling, and I love it! I used it while moving into a new house, and it kept my drinks very cold. I also used it to temporarily store a few food items while getting a new refrigerator. Everything kept cold, and nothing spoiled. I did not experience any leakage. The material is durable, and lightweight. At one point a heavy box ended up on top of it, and it did not squish it. It comes with an alternate strap, so it can be carried with short or long straps. The insulation is thick. It's bright blue on the inside, which I like. There are 2 small pockets on the outside, which could be a little bigger and less tight, but overall, I have really enjoyed this cooler so far. I highly recommend it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big cooler with lots of room!! This Hydro Flask cooler is part of the Unbound Series . It is a 18 liter soft tote. The color I received is called most but I would say it is light grey. Cooler holds alot. I think I could get 4 2 of bottles of pop in there. For my use I had one 2 liter of pop. 4 big sandwiches and a smaller bag of chips, along with napkins and some plastic cups. I used some flat ice packs I had , one on bottom and one on the side and a big of ice cubes and that kept it nice and chilled for me. I don't know how long because I only had it in there for a couple of hours before I emptied it. Washed up real nice. Kinda bulky for me to carry but not for my husband.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for day trips! This tote really is everything you need in a cooler. Starting with its design, it's light and comfortable to carry in a nice gray color and it comes with a removable shoulder strap so you can carry it whichever way you want. It's nicely sized, not super tall but tall enough to fit a 2 liter standing up and still zip closed. Now on the cooler itself, it's got an 18 liter capacity so it fits plenty of drinks, snacks, ice etc... and there was room to spare. The insulation in this cooler is really fantastic too, for example, I carried this around the water park for the day with my family and I was so pleasantly surprised that it kept the ice and drinks cold the whole day(at least 7 hours) and didn't leak everywhere. Now I'm not saying, you can open this on and off all day in the crazy summer heat and nothing will melt, but with limited opening and enough ice your food and drinks will be good to go for quite some time. I really love finally having something besides a clunky hard plastic cooler to bring on trips with us and will be bringing it on all of our day trips from now on!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest Cooler I got the Hydro Flask 18 L Soft Cooler Tote - Black and it's very cool! It has so much room for drinks and food. It keeps the drinks and food very cold. Easy to carry and put away. Very easy to clean and put away, without it being in the way. I had several people ask me about this cooler and I definitely recommend it to them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cooler Tote Ever! My husband and I absolutely love this Hydro Flask 18 Liter Soft Cooler Tote. We have used it to carry drinks and snacks in for a football game at a friends house and for a trip to the local zoo. We put ice packs in it like they recommend and it kept all our items nice and cold even after it had been sitting in the car all morning while we was inside the zoo. It was so nice to come out to the car at lunch and get an ice cold drink and eat cold lunch meat sandwiches. It is big enough for the whole family to pack a drink and sandwiches even so it's the perfect size for us. We also really liked the special watertight zipper that is on it. You don't have to worry about it leaking anything out if it would accidentally fall over. The zipper is a little hard at first but once you get used to it you will love it and that just shows you how tight and waterproof it is. Another bonus of this softer yet very sturdy and durable tote cooler is that is its BPA and toxin free. So you don't have to worry about any chemicals getting into your food while inside the cooler. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a nice, durable soft cooler.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! I purchased this to keep in the car when we travel. This keeps drinks and snacks cold and I love that the freezer pack is on the bottom. Holds a great deal. Love the color, has a great handle and easy to carry and love that it comes with a clip on shoulder strap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cooler The Hydro Flask 18 L Soft Cooler Tote - Black is the best. I absolutely love it it keeps things cold for a very long time, it's big and holds several items. I did not get to use it much this year but you can believe I will be using it next summer for sure. It is waterproof, has dry pockets to store your phone , snacks, anything. It has a strap so you can easily carry it. I would definitely recommend this for any outdoors person or even if you go to outside events of any kind. You will not be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from travel companion this bag is great for traveling. It keeps your drinks and snacks very cold. I also used an additional ice block. I have also used this for my lunch bag at work. Kept food cold for 8 hours. The little pockets on the outside could be a bit bigger, I can barely put my hand in them but overall I am happy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays cold I've been using this cooler for a week now. It's been in the upper 90's and everything was still cold and my ice pack was still frozen. I'm very impressed. Love the soft shoulder strap very comfortable. The only think I didn't like was that if your hands are dirty it shows but I some of it wipes right off. Maybe I should have gotten a darker color. It definitely does what it claims to do. I've already suggest to a lot of construction workers and my camper friends about this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and cool cooler This is a great little cooler that looks as great as it works. Perfect for a small camping trips, picnics, or long trips to the grocery store. I can keep my frozen foods in it and not worry about them melting if I have to make a few extra stops before home. It's compact enough for me to just leave it in the back of my Outback.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing cooler! This cooler by the looks alone is awesome! But the features are even better! It’s sleek looking, compact, and soft shell making it easier to use. It has outside zippers to stick stuff in as well. It doesn’t take up much room or space when traveling and that’s what we used it for. It’s perfect!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping things chilled This generous size (18L) soft cooler is absolutely fantastic in so many ways. Two durable straps are stitched on so I can carry it by hand or just clip on a longer shoulder strap if I wanted to carry it that way; the shoulder area on the strap is padded for extra comfort. There are small zippered compartments on front and back of the cooler. Very deep inside, no inner compartments. The zippers are great quality and very durable. I do have a little trouble unzipping them because they are very tight. Definitely keeps foods and drinks very cold for long periods of time. It is super easy to wipe clean if anything spills or leaks. The cooler alone is very light weight. The bottom of the cooler has thicker insulation so it helps hold the temperature better for food and drinks. Definitely recommending to everyone. Pros: Easy to clean Easy to carry Light weight BPA and toxin free Cons: Absolutely none (Based on my personal experience)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge The Hydro Flask Tote is really big! Perfect for a big family. It's also multi functional. It can be used as a cooler to keep your food and drinks cold for hours. Or it can be used as a dry bag. And you don't have to worry about your stuff getting wet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed Everything about this cooler is impressive! It has a great look, very stylish in shades of gray and black. It has handles and a padded shoulder strap, all very well constructed and comfortable. The bottom is reinforced and the top zips open with a smooth easy to use zipper. The inside is roomy and holds much more than I thought it would. There is also a little zipper pocket on the front and back. I put ice and drinks in it on a Monday then left the cooler sitting on my back porch, the weather was in the 90's so I didn't expect the ice to last more than a day so I was surprised on Wednesday when I discovered my drinks were still cold and I still had some ice, super impressed! I really like that the size and shape of the cooler makes it perfect to take along on road trips as it fits easily in the back floorboard of our car. I will be using this great cooler often. Highly recommend, if you are looking for a great looking durable easy to tote cooler that actually works this is it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Cooler This cooler is amazing, the color was super cute! but besides that it worked very effectively for a few hours at the pool in Texas this summer. This cooler kept all our drinks cool for a few good hours with ice packs outside in the hot hot sun. This bag is fashionable, functional, and WORKS! I really like the size before getting this cooler bag we had a few others that were always a little too big or too small. I really like this size, I like that it can be converted to a body strap as well if it gets too heavy. The extra pocket designs are great for small things.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cooler is fantastic The cooler is very sleek. Like a hybrid of a hard side cooler and soft cooler. The zipper is very strong and keeps liquids in and out. I love the multiple sections and that it has different ways to carry it. There is a strap that was inside to attach to it to do an over the shoulder thing and then you the two handles on the sides. The cooler is made of high quality materials and fits a lot of refreshments and food. I took it to the beach and the ice was still good after 8 hrs. I am very impressed with the quality and look of this hydro flask cooler. I should not be surprised since the company is very well known for its quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and amazing!! This is such an amazing cooler! It doesn't weigh very much and is easy to carry around. It is made very well! I used it for a 2 day trip and it worked great! It kept everything nice and cold and I only used one ice pack in it. The zipper is a little hard to close but I think that is because it is waterproof and meant to be tight. I really like the size. It isn't too big to carry and yet it is big enough to fit quite a bit of stuff in it. It held more than I thought it would. I like that it has 2 handles and a shoulder strap so you can carry it either way. Very impressed with it!! Everyone in my group thought my Hydro Flask cooler was so cool!! They all want one now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy with this cooler! I'm very happy with the Hydro Flask 18 L Soft Cooler Tote. My boyfriend and I took the cooler out on the boat with us for a day of fishing yesterday. It was the perfect size cooler for a day trip's worth of drinks and food for two people. Our drinks and food stayed plenty cold all day. There are plenty of handles on the cooler, both on top of the cooler and on the sides, so it's convenient to carry however you want. The cooler is also very light and has a nylon outer shell that is waterproof. I'm so impressed with this cooler, and look forward to taking it on many days on the boat as well as on fishing trips.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight cooler! I received this Hydro Flask 18 L Soft Cooler Tote a couple of weeks ago. This cooler meets all of the claims in that it is sturdy, light weight and keeps items cold for 2 days. I would highly recommend this to any one that likes to camp, picnic or mini vacations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Cooler! This cooler is very well constructed and does not leak. Keeps food cold a very long time. It is light weight and easy to carry. I like that the liner is BPA free.It is the perfect size to hold may items. The top access works well and it stands up straight without tipping over.
