Lugging around a cooler can get old very fast. The bottom-heavy devices make every step a workout, regardless of where you’re at, and oftentimes the handles attached are plastic, dull and uncomfortable.

Enter the cooler backpack: a comfortable alternative to the typical plastic cooler that, let’s be honest, never really works that well.

Tourit emphasizes comfort in its cooler backpacks, paying special attention to adding layers of padding to shoulder straps to ensure you won’t be sore after that picnic or hike. Right now, Tourit cooler backpacks are up to 46 percent off on Amazon, a particularly good deal seeing as warm-weather items tend to stay at their normal prices once summer comes to an end.

These backpacks come with insulation that works, so you won’t open your cooler to find that all of the ice you bought melted, coating your bottles and sandwiches in a pool of water. They’re more useful than you’d think.
