The biggest problem with most hardshell coolers is that they take up a ton of space when you aren’t using them. But soft-sided coolers just don’t offer the same protection to the stuff you stash inside of them. Well, now there’s a middle ground. It’s called the Stash Rigid Inflatable Cooler.
Rather than settling for a bulky closet-hog hardshell or a wimpy soft-side, the folks at Stash combined them for the best of both worlds. When inflated, these coolers are rigid and tough, thanks to their military-grade UV protected vinyl exterior, polyurethane reinforced feet, and heavy duty webbing support straps. But, once you’re done using them, they deflate down into a much more storage-friendly format you can easily stash in even the tightest spots. And they’re just as easy to blow back up thanks to the included high-volume pump and patented air valve. The Stash coolers range from 79-604 quarts to cover everything from weekend beach days to high-volume deep sea fishing trips and they start at $399.
