CleverMade SnapBasket Soft-Sided Collapsible Cooler
The issue with conventional picnic coolers is that you don’t get to maximize your space once you’re done with your outdoor activity. CleverMade solves this issue with its unique take on what a picnic cooler should be. The SnapBasket looks like a cross between a cooler and an oversized lunch bag. It is collapsible and comes with neat thermal retention properties to keep your drinks super-cool.
When closed, the SnapBasket is no thicker than the width of a credit card at only 2.75 inches. This means you can pack it real tight once you are done with your outdoor activities. Squeeze it and compress it so you can slip it into one of the pockets of your bag. Now, don’t ever think that this will have a negative impact on the SnapBasket’s storage capabilities. When opened, this CleverMade creation measures 12 inches tall, 12.25 inches deep, and 18.25 inches wide. That is a remarkable 30-liter capacity for you.
The storage compartment of the SnapBasket features an insulated liner complete with leak-proofing. It is spacious enough to accommodate 50 beer or soda cans, in addition to ice. The shell of this CleverMade product combines polyester, polyethylene vinyl acetate, ABS, MDF, and polypropylene. It is sturdy and durable, enabling it to handle more than 50 pounds of combined load. You can put a combination of soda cans and beer bottles and the SnapBasket will handle them like a pro.
This collapsible cooler also provides a built-in bottle opener made of matte aluminum. There’s no need to bring your own bottle opener, although it will not hurt if you have an extra. There are also two pockets on the front and rear panels of the SnapBasket. The rear mesh pocket is perfect for storing small but non-essential items. Up front is another pocket that features heady-duty zippers. You may want to use this storage option for securing your more valuable stuff.
While the design of the SnapBasket is that of a portable cooler, it does present as a worthy picnic basket. It is versatile enough to accept your small food containers so you retain the goodness of your food. And since it is collapsible, there’s no fussing about how you will carry it back to the house.
The CleverMade SnapBasket is an ingenious portable cooler that can double as a large picnic basket. Every sensible homemaker should have one of these giant soft-sided tote bags ready all the time.
