Coolers are an absolute necessity for anyone who enjoys being out of the house, but still wants a cool beverage to enjoy. The problem with coolers is that they tend to be bulky and take up a lot of space when not in use (or even when in use, for that matter). That’s where the new Cooler Caddy from Bellroy comes in really handy. Now, you can’t use the Bellroy Cooler Caddy for your whole picnic, but you can use it to carry a six-pack or perhaps a smaller meal for two. And then when you’re done, this cooler folds down small enough that you can easily slip it into a backpack.

Bellroy used recycled materials to create the cooler—another point in the positive category—and added in 3M Thinsulate insulation to keep everything nice and cool inside. The grab handle is made of webbing and the entire back is water resistant—that’s both inside and out, so you could leave the bag out in the rain or fill it up with ice and no harm done. Bellroy even went so far as to include a built-in bottle opener to make this cooler caddy your go-to conveyance for your favourite beverage. The bag has a wide mouth opening for easier access, and the flat bottom means you won’t have to worry about it tipping over. And another point for the positive? The bag is backed by a three-year warranty.
The bag itself only weighs 200 grams and it measures a small 220 x 360 x 150 mm. Bellroy touts it as a cooler you can attach to the outside of a daybag. The Bellroy Cooler Caddy is available in three colours—charcoal, copper, and true blue. Pick up one for yourself—or a friend—through Bellroy’s website for just AUD$89.
