It looks like a fancy duffle bag. You know, the kind you’ll rock as part of your fancy streetwear outfit, instead of the kind you just randomly pulled out of the shelf and filled with your gear. The Corkcicle Ivanhoe Duffle, however, is no ordinary bag, as it’s a soft-sided cooler that lets you carry a bunch of chilled refreshments in style.
That’s right, you can now make your way to the tailgate while looking like you’re heading out to the gym, allowing you to pretend you’re going to spend the new couple hours hitting mitts, lifting weights, or doing your gym’s workout of the day. Seriously, you can probably keep this under the desk at the office with no problem, since no one’s going to suspect the darn thing is filled with nothing but beer and ice.
The Corkcicle Ivanhoe Duffle is equipped with closed-cell foam insulation that can keep all of its contents chilled for the entire day, making it ideal for holding grub and libations during picnics, day trips, and parties. No, you probably shouldn’t use it to hold your food and refreshments during a weekend camping trip, but it should hold up for anything that won’t require keeping stuff chilled for more than 24 hours. It can hold up to 48 cans of beer, along with a good helping of ice, so you can cram enough libations inside to get a small group inebriated for your next drinking party.
Outside, the bag is cut in a shell decked in either a dark camouflage pattern or a solid gray finish, with reinforced faux leather at the base, handles, and various details. It has a food-safe TPU liner that can resist odor, mold, and mildew, all while being fully heat-welded to prevent any moisture from leaking. According to the outfit, the interior can be cleaned by simply wiping down, so you can take this from one party to the next without having to do any serious cleaning.
The Corkcicle Ivanhoe Duffle comes with carry handles for toting the bag by hand, as well as a removable padded shoulder strap, in case you need something sturdier to carry the weight. A full-length YKK zipper closure provides access to the main compartment, allowing you to fill it up with drinks and ice with the same ease that you can grab your next beer in the middle of a drunken stupor. Like any proper bag, it comes with easy-access side pockets with magnetic closures for holding small accessories (like bottle openers and pocket knives) and a rear accessory pocket with a zippered closure.
Aside from the duffle bag, Corkcicle’s new cooler line also includes three other soft-sided coolers in bag form factors, each of which looks like an actual bag, allowing you to haul your drinks in a discreet manner. This includes a 24-can tote bag, an 18-can handbag, and a 12-can bucket backpack, all of which come with YKK zipper closures, reinforced vegan leather elements, and padded straps.
