I bought my cooler that I use every day for lunch at Target a year or two ago - it works great!

The Thermos cooler is so cute. I wish I could buy it directly in Canada. It would probably cost me double to order it from the sight with duty etc.

My all-time favorite cooler is the Thermos Raya cooler tote. It holds a ton and has a shoulder strap, plus it looks great.

Target has a bunch of them, and so does Walmart. Sports Authority has cooler sets, big ones and small ones combined.

I got a small hard cooler that holds enough for one person from opening a bank account a few years back.
I purchased a larger (claims to hold 24 cans) soft sided wheelie cooler from BJ's Wholesale that I love.
I have not had any problems with leakage. I have had soft sided in the past that have leaked however.

Hello:
Everyone has some great ideas. We use our cooler quite a bit and have used them for holidays, travel baseball etc. The main thing I have found from our experience is the soft sided without a hard shell inside, tend to leak if you have ice or something that sweats a lot. We have a large hard shell for camping, beach etc. We have several soft side with hard shells that come out so they can be washed and don't have the leakage problem. We have had many times where things have leaked in the softsided, especially when carrying them in the car for snacks on long trips.

I hope this helps someone.

I usually buy them at Wal-mart. Any of those types of stores have them, and also places with camping gear usually carry them as well.

I think a lot depends on how many people you are using it for. With a large family I like the sturdier ones with wheels. It sure is nice to wheel a heavy cooler rather than carry it. They do make the soft collapsable ones with wheels now too. We live in a small town and my dh commutes out of town to work so he does all of our Costco shopping for us on his way home from work. He carries a cooler in his car just for that. It definately needs to be a collapsable cooler for him because to keep a large hard cooler in his car all the time it would just take up too much space. Brand wise, I think they are all similar. We've bought our coolers at Walmart, Costco and Target and usually on sale.

I have a largish soft side cooler (could probably hold a six pack and a half or maybe two that I use to transport my meals from home to work and back. I don't use it to hold my food all day or for hours (just one hour each way). I can fit most of my meals for a week in it (just the refrigeratable portion, the dry items I put in a bag). I got mine as a promotion from Sunkist so I can't help you there, but I do like the soft side because when it is not in use I can fold it up and stash it away easily.

I've backslidden... I reached my goal and was now maintaining, but now I need to lose 10 pounds and firm up.

You know.....oddly enough I purchased mine from Wal*mart four years ago and it still does the job...taken with me to beaches, events etc, etc. I just purchased the 'Igloo' brand but I hear anything 'Coleman' brand is supposed to be really, really sturdy.....but also quite expensive. Thanks.

I was wondering where to find a good cooler? Did you guys buy yours online or in a store? I'd love some recommendations!
