Coolers are selling fast on Prime Day, but it's not too late to grab a great deal
The weather is really heating up, so a cooler or icebox is all but essential if you're heading out camping soon
The weather is seriously heating up in both the US and the UK, so it's no surprise that deals on coolers and iceboxes are selling out fast. Now that we're approaching the closing hours of Prime Day many are now out of stock, but we've rounded up the best deals still available so you don't have to hunt around.
Most of the deals here are from Coleman, which specializes in affordable camping gear (including an impressive array of tents) and Igloo, which has been making coolers since 1947. There are also coolers from lesser-known brands in the Amazon Prime Day sale, but personally we'd stick with brands that we know and trust to avoid the disappointment of warm beer or, worse, a leaking mess all over your car.
