With summer approaching, I'm on the lookout for a hardy cooler that will keep things fresh for days when there's no fridge on hand. Any recommendations?

Kelty Folding Cooler   


The Folding Cooler may only be good for a day or two, but it’s the lightest, most packable ice chest you can get for stashing in the car or canoe. The semi-rigid shape squashes down from 13 inches high to 6 inches wide when you’re ready to load out, and the reinforced bottom and feet help it make the most use of its insulation by raising it off the ground.
