Frostpak™ Soft Coolers

These expedition proven coolers feature a waterproof liner that prevents melted ice from penetrating insulation are waterproof up to the zipper. 12 quart and 19 quart sizes are perfect for day excursions and hikes. The 25 quart is sized to easily fit into cars and boats. The 40 quart is shorter in height and longer in length, making it a great cooler that can easily be lashed down in rafts and canoes. Soft coolers fold down easily when not in use for easy and low profile storage. Made in USA. MSRP: $47.95-$74.95.

Seattle Sports Company, est. 1983 We grew up in the Puget Sound, a basin of sorts, lodged between two vastly different mountain ranges, and engulfed by a landscape jigsawed by lakes, canals, rivers, locks, hills, and regrades. In Seattle, outdoors is everywhere and is ingrained into the everyday lives of the people who inhabit the city, effectively erasing the boundary of outdoor adventure and everyday life. At Seattle Sports we strive to honor this relationship through innovation, history and an understanding of our environment. The result is the continued creation of a wide selection of quality outdoor gear at a full range of price points. We produce gear that speaks to a world where outdoors and everyday are synonymous.
