Reply I love the collapsible one! That would be great for things like community soccer games and baseball games, where it's a BYO-everything event. Reply I have a similar collapsible one and love it. We fill it with ice and put it next to the outdoor bar we set up. We have a 5 gallon cooling/heating water dispenser I make a non-pulp punch in and we plug it into the house. As for coolers, I really like this one that raised 8+million bucks on Kickstater: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ryangrepper/coolest-cooler-21st-century-cooler-thats-actually Reply That is a thing that I didn't know existed 2 minutes ago, and now my life is incomplete without one.
