Engel Cooler BackPack, offering more unique features than leading competitors - and at almost half the cost.




The new Engel Backpack Cooler features a rugged, tear-resistant 500-denier polyester diamond ripstop outer shell with a waterproof TPE coating for easy cleaning. On the inside, there’s two radiant barrier liners of reflective foil – another exclusive Engel feature you won’t find on other bags. Sandwiched in-between the foil layers is a 1-inch thick layer of closed-cell foam insulation. While the insulation effectively minimizes heat transfer to maintain cold inner temperatures, the radiant barrier liners reflects the sun’s long-wave heat radiation to further enhance the Backpack Cooler’s cold-keeping capabilities. Under typical conditions, the Backpack Cooler will hold ice for up to three days.

Engel Coolers… The First, The Best, Your Last.


Easy Access with Room To Spare
With a whopping 23 quart capacity, there is plenty of room for food and snacks, a hearty picnic lunch – or more than 24 cans of ice-cold, liquid refreshment. The top opening features a heavy-duty two-way water-repellant zipper that pulls open for full access to the main inner compartment. Next to the main opening, there is a zippered side pocket, an ideal place to put an Engel Cooler Pak or two. (Engel Cooler Paks will keep the adjacent contents in the main section cold without relying upon ice – freeing up more space for groceries and eliminating sloppy meltwater.)

Exclusive Patented Inner Liner
In the main compartment, contents are held in a patented, removable liner bag that attaches around the top with hook-and-loop fasteners. The reinforced bag is puncture-resistant and features Microban® anti-microbial protection. This exclusive Engel feature protects the inside of the bag and, best of all, makes for easy clean up at the end of the trip.

Pockets, Handles and Straps
The flat bottom of the cooler bag is fitted with four non-skid feet to keep it from sliding around on deck. There are mesh side pockets for items that don’t require cooling, a large zippered front pocket for plates, flatware and cooking supplies, and an outer pocket for last minute items. Sturdy tote handles slide onto your shoulder or you can carry the Engel Cooler BackPack by hand. Plus, there are padded, breathable shoulder straps that make it easy to carry this Engel as a backpack.

RealTree® Soft Sided BackPack Cooler

Soft Sided BackPack Cooler is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks everywhere Bought this at Christmas time. Was exactly what I was looking for. A smaller easy to carry cooler when I go fishing. Backpack is great and it held ice longer than any small soft cooler I have had. Then I realized its biggest issue. I brought inside house we were renting at night. Woke up and there was water all over the floor. Don't know how because ice was in both bags provided with cooler. So this is not a bring inside cooler. And do not put in car or you will be using shop vac. For the price I would rather have a $10 igloo and buy one more bag of ice. Than have a cooler that leaks everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BAG! PERFECT FOR THE BEACH TO TRAVELING Bought this bag for the beach and was very impressed to have the one bag of ice last over 2 days with gradual ice melting away. The bag is very well constructed, feels rugged and the fact that you can carry as a backpack style makes it so versatile. The interior storage is good for the average day trip to the beach or long roadtrip. Instead of the big bulky "cooler" type... this stays vertical, very cold and will do the same function. So if its drinks/beer, sandwiches and the typical things you take then its perfect. Highly impressed and plan to get another one for cousin's beach house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love everything about it! I ordered this specifically because it was a backpack cooler.. I LOVE IT! As a "Sports Mom" I am on the go every night and weekend, I love that I can fill this up and carry it on my back leaving my hands free for everything else needing toted to and from the fields. The dry pockets are an added bonus. I throw my phone, sunglasses, money, etc.. in them. My only complaint is that they don't come in more colors, because after seeing mine 3 more moms went and bought one, so we have to keep them separated! They all love them too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used as a carry on then cooler for vacation We bought this cooler so that we could use it to carry on to our flight to Miami, then use on our boat while there in the Keys. The size was perfect and because it was aloft, fit under our seats and I. The overhead quite nicely. The backpack straps made it even easier to carry as well. As far as doing the best to keep our beverages cool, it did average. The zipper was sturdy and the removable insert was awesome. The extra dry storage was super nice too. It was perfect for our needs and much better than their competitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little cooler, better deal. I bought one month ago and compared with competitors. I was so satisfied with my Engel Deep Blue 35 I stuck with the Engel. I'm very satisfied. It is a great cooler to put behind the truck seat and throw in the boat to keep drinks cool for inshore fishing. Light, tough and keeps drinks cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed! Very pleased with all the features of this cooler, such as the zipped pockets. I especially like the one on top, this allows you to put food or anything you want to keep cool, but don't want in your ice. I never been a fan of soft sided coolers, but my girlfriend wanted one she could take to the beach, and my hard coolers are too heavy for her. I went with this one because of the price, and the backpack straps. I've yet to really test the ice retention out, but seems like its going to exceed my expectations in that department. I'm currently putting it to the test against my roadie, so far its holding ice at about the same rate, but only about 12 hours in. One area that this cooler does fall short, is the zipper leaks. So wouldn't recommend laying it on its side. Also would like to see it in additional colors, because I'm afraid the white is going to be a challenge to keep clean. Other than that, am very pleased, and glad I didn't spend double the price on a yeti. Pending review: Ice retention, and durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love all the extras! I bought this a month ago and it has been the best bang for your buck cooler I could find. I also purchased a Yeti, Polar Bear, and 3 different AO soft sides to compare. I originally only purchased the yeti with all intentions of keeping it but after prepping it like the instructions said, it only held ice for around 2 hours at the ballfield. I understand that a soft side does not hold as well as a regular cooler but for $300 I felt it should last longer than that. After that I ordered all the rest and cooled them all with ice and then emptied and refilled and left over night. The Engel held up the best! I can take it to the ballfields all day and still have ice. I love this thing! I love that it has a separate pouch for ice. I usually just put a large freezer pack in there and then a couple of frozen 16oz waters in the large section and it's all I need. I use this for my sons drinks and my toddlers food mostly. With the toddler, I really appreciate the side pockets. I put her snack cups and other things in it. The other coolers did not have this. It's also nice that it fits like a backpack so I have free hands to carry everything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soft side on the market Anyone that knows Engel knows they are the original, way before Yeti, Rtic, Pelican, etc, etc. I picked this up at a recent gun show already familiar with the brand. Took it last week on a 12 hour road trip. Loaded it with ice and warm drinks the morning of departure. Planned on using it so I could easiliy access drinks and snacks instead of stopping a lot. Every time I opened the zipper a rush of extremely cold air would come out. It was extremely satisfying to see that. Every single drink was cold as could be the entire 12 hours. When I got to the hotel to empty out the bag I removed the pouch and poured the ice out. Yes after 12 hours it was still all ice. Very little had melted. These bags do not leak as mentioned below. That is likely an operator error from what I gather. Love this bag, not to mention the price and quality. Thanks Engel for making great products for real consumers.
