This story is part of Father’s Day Gift Guide 2021, featuring our top picks for dads who love tech.

Drinks and ice are heavy to lug, but they feel a lot less so when you put your back and shoulders in charge instead of one arm. I was turned on to the soft backpack cooler concept a few years back, and I’ve been completely hooked ever since. Right now, Woot (an Amazon site) has the OtterBox Trooper 30-quart soft backpack cooler down more than 55% to just $130. The deal is perfectly timed for the spring and summer outdoor seasons, not to mention Father’s Day. If Dad is a bona fide beach bum, camper, hiker or park barbecue organizer type — or if you are — this will make for a useful companion and the perfect gift to boot. 

The Trooper has 30 quarts of capacity with a wide-opening top for easy access and thermal insulation to keep ice frozen for three days. It’s also leakproof, water-resistant and converts to an over-the-shoulder carry if you need to give your back a break. There’s even a bottle opener attachment and pockets to store dry goods. It’s available in two colors at the sale price: hunter green and a brown forest camo.

I checked, and this is the lowest the Trooper has dropped on Amazon — by far — and shipping is just $6 (or free if you’re a Prime member). Supplies may be limited as one color has already sold, so you should probably jump at this cooler deal while it’s still on.
