I received my Dayventure Backpack Cooler a few months ago. It's by far one of my favorite bags that I have ever owned. I do a lot of wade fishing and the bag has preformed well in the saltwater. Its very comfortable and the mesh padding on the back allows for plenty of airflow and if it gets wet it drys out pretty quick. I use the outside pouch to hold my phone, wallet, and keys. It has kept all of my essentials dry when splashed which is very important. The top compartment has plenty of space for me to fit a couple tackle boxes along with a towel or sunscreen. This leaves the bottom compartment open for snacks, drinks or anything cold. It really is the best of both worlds. After hours of wade fishing in the saltwater, I make sure to take everything out and rinse the bag throughly with fresh water, especially the zippers. The bag has held up extremely well and I literally have it with me everyday in my work van loaded up with my fishing gear, Im always ready for an adventure!

Thank you so much for the kind review, Erik! We really appreciate it! Thank you for choosing Pelican!

I picked this day venture cooler up right when it came out over a year ago. So far after a year of use its been awesome. Ive used it for hunting , camping and all around use. The cooler still looks like new and I'm pretty rough on my coolers.

Thank you for the kind review, Eric! I am so happy to hear you are enjoying your Pelican Dayventure Soft Cooler!
