Some of the best days of summer are spent off the grid. Escaping the buzz of work and city life and heading to a secluded lake with no cell service — that's our idea of paradise. Although, the reality of having a picnic by the water, or hiking to the top of a viewpoint, or getting into the backcountry and off the beaten trail, is not always as idyllic as it sounds — the logistics of transporting everything you need to the site and keeping it all cold and fresh can be challenging to say the least. Well, this summer that concept got a whole lot easier. Hydro Flask just launched the ultimate trail-friendly cooler in the 20L Day Escape Soft Cooler Pack, which offers plenty of features to make your vantage point picnic one to remember. And to complement the 20 L Day Escape, we've curated the perfect picnic kit with everything else you need. Whether you want to hang at the lake, have lunch with a view or spend the day at the river, we have everything you need to escape to your favorite spot this summer.

Logistically it's not always easy to carry your favorite beverage, favorite snack and plenty to share to your favorite place — but the 20 L Day Escape Soft Cooler Pack from Hydro Flask changes that. Designed to take you further, this cooler is the ultimate companion for your adventures this summer. It's made with lightweight and durable materials like a 600D polyester shell and a self-healing TRU® Zip watertight zipper, which simply slides to re-align if for some reason it separates during your excursion. It also offers 36-hour insulation while keeping the weight down, so you can take your picnic that extra mile to the quieter and more secluded lake. Plus, the welded seams and attached gear loops ensure that you won't be halfway to the lake leaving a trail of your favorite IPA behind you. Prefer to carry the weight cross-body instead of with the attached backpack straps? No problem. The Day Escape is also available in an 18 L and 26 L tote with included cross-body straps, letting you size up or down depending on what you have planned. The Day Escape Soft Coolers offer multiple carry options for convenient hands-free carrying — you might not even notice you have it on you. Each cooler in the collection also offers fixed latch points for easily adding the new Hydro Flask Dry Storage. Plus the 20 L includes a side stretch pocket for stashing your Hydro Flask bottle within easy reach — you won’t need much else for your day on the trail.
