Gear Guy: What are the best mini coolers?
“The Stanley is, by far, the most durable cooler on this list thanks to its sturdy latches and high-density polyethylene. One of our favorite features (besides the superior insulation, of course) was the removable bungee that stretches over the top. We found it handy when stashing shirts or a small blanket…because it does have a lifetime warranty, it could be the last mini cooler you buy.”
What's the Best Gear for an Outdoor Party?
“This seven-ounce plastic flask has a latch that opens its entire top, making it very easy to fill. This design let us pre-mix margaritas before a party, and cleaning out the stick residue afterward was a snap. Plus, it’s dishwasher-safe.”

“Most lunch-box coolers are poorly made – and perform just as poorly – but this one has a robust build and packs 2.5 times as much insulating foam compared with similar units. Laced lid bungees allow you to securely strap on a thermos or paperback book.”
Kit: Winter Surfing
“The Stanley Vacuum Bottle is a classic with 100 years of warm beverage providing to its credit. Its double-wall vacuum insulated stainless steel construction will keep your coffee steaming hot long after a day in the icy seas concludes.”
Commuter: Get to the office dry, safe, and looking good
“This slender 16-ounce mug solves the age-old dilemma: How to safely carry coffee on your bike – and enjoy it en route? A push button on the vacuum-sealed lid allows you to open, sip, and close one-handed; the BPA-free stainless steel keeps beverage hot for six hours. I rolled it down my driveway and it didn’t leak a drop.”
