HD-30 Soft-Sided Cooler Bag
If you’re looking for a portable soft-sided cooler bag to safely transport your meat and other perishables home, look no further than the new HD-30 Soft-Sided Cooler Bag by ENGEL. Measuring 20 inches long, 10 inches wide and 16 inches tall, it fits most airline size requirements for carry-on luggage and can be easily carried by its tote handles, side handles, or single adjustable padded strap.
The HD-30 is engineered to withstand harsh conditions too, making it an ideal cooler bag for hunters and outdoorsmen. It’s 100% waterproof and unlike most cooler bags, is entirely welded. The welded seams keep warm air out, ensure no water leaks, and keep your beverages and game meat cold for days, even in hot weather. Its welded zipper is also waterproof and air resistant.
The outside of the HD-30 is made of sturdy 840 denier fibers, providing maximum strength and abrasion resistance. For an additional layer of durability and puncture resistance, ENGEL covers the front and back sides of the cooler with a Thermal Plastic Urethane (TPU) film. Inside the cooler, closed-cell foam prevents air from passing through it, which improves the thermal range of the cooler bag.
New to the HD-30 is its patent-pending vacuum valve technology. Use the “Vacuum Valve” on the side of the cooler bag to remove excess air from around the insulation. ENGEL recommends using a vacuum to suck out air before the first use for optimal performance.
This rugged cooler bag weighs only 5.25 pounds and has a capacity of 32 quarts. It includes an integrated bottle opener, water-resistant front pocket, and is available in three colors: blue, green and orange. A seafoam color is coming soon.
