Given the rise of thick-walled, grizzly-proof coolers that keep ice frozen for days on end, it's easy to forget that smaller options do exist. Besides, many of us don't need ice to stay solid for more than a few hours, and admit it, when was the last time you were in grizzly bear country? Colorado-based RovR does make a cooler for those times and places — it made our list of the best you can buy — but the company recently released the perfect option for picnics and short outings called the KeepR.
The KeepR does the same thing as a cooler, but think of it more like a mash-up between a picnic basket and an ice bucket. The KeepR has a lidded core compartment that holds ice and is surrounded by separate sections for stashing bottles, cans, snacks and whatever else you might want to keep frosty on an outing. Dry things stay dry — no soggy sandwich bread here — and everything stays cold. It's easy to fill and, thanks to its picnic- and cookout-friendly size, easy to empty, too.
