Bass Pro Shops Soft Side Cooler
We used this cooler on a recent camping trip, and it did very well for us. We did not use ice but opted instead for frozen ice packs to keep it cool. The inside of the cooler is lined and seems to be watertight. It kept our hot dogs, drinks, and other items cold all night. I love that it folds up flat for compact storage. The handles on the sides are nice and sturdy as well. It would be nicer if it had a few more outside pockets and a better quality zipper, but for the price, it's quite nice for light to moderate use.

This is the right size to be inside a rigid igloo cooler and keep things extra insulated for longer cooling with the same cold stuff. This is important to me, since I have to ferry groceries to an island.
The only problem is the square corners make the zipper a bit difficult to zip around them. Also, two zipper pulls, one from each end would improve this cooler.
Ads should always give measurements, as many people are not carrying cans, but other items.

Hardley worth the material its made of
It does not hold ice long at all. The bottom has cardboard and open cell foam pieces semi-sealed and soaks up water that pretty much never dries out which is nasty ... I bought two at once and threw one away and the other gets its weekly use on the boat for drinks that are barley cold after 4 hrs on the water. Will be buying a coleman or igloo small cooler to replace. Im surprised Bass Pro puts their name on this ...

comes in handy
This cooler stays folded in my truck until it's needed. Great for when you unexpectedly decide to keep some fish to fry. If you pick up groceries after work, it will get your steaks, ice cream, etc. safely home through rush hour traffic. When I load it up with drinks for the boat, I use frozen plastic water bottles to keep stuff cold. No leaks, no problem.
