Yeti Hopper

Yeti has long been an industry leader when it comes to keeping things cool—hell, its hard coolers are bear-proof. But the company’s latest offering might be its most boat-ready yet: the Hopper soft-sided cooler. Leave it to Yeti to take the usually flimsy and leaky soft-sided cooler and flip it on its head by creating a puncture-resistant, leakproof item with an anti-microbial liner to keep mildew growth to a minimum and the ability to keep your drinks cool for days, thanks to thick closed-cell foam insulation. The Hopper comes in three different sizes: the 20 (holds 18 beers and 20lb of ice), the 30 (holds 24 beers and 30lb of ice) and the new beastly 40 (holds 36 beers and 40lb of ice).

Starts at $299.99. Yeti Coolers, yeticoolers.com
