A YETI Hopper 30 is about the size of my girlfriend's purse, and I have plenty of experience carrying that so...uh, I mean, if she can lug a 30-liter bag all over the streets of Nashville, even once it's stuffed full of crap she bought from the streets of Nashville, then I should have no problem carrying a portable cooler a mile or two down the river when I go fishing with my friend Cornelius next spring.

YETI extends its promise of ruggedness and superior performance to 3 shoulder-schleppable sizes of the Hopper bag series. 20-, 30-, and 40-liter coolers are made of a DryHide Shell that is puncture-resistant, leak-proof, and lined with an mildew-resistant anti-microbial interior. Hopper sides have 1" of ColdCell insulation, and the bottom 1.5" that, along with a watertight HydroLok zipper, delivers YETI's trademark longterm cooling without leakage. Cooler exteriors are made of materials that come from the likes of hazmat suits and whitewater rafts, so they'll be stand up to all the bumps, drops, tosses, fish guts, and projectile vomits after one too many that come their way.

For scale gauging, the YETI Hopper 30 has capacity for 24 cans of beer or 30 pounds of ice.
