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?

A:The team effort by Cabela’s and Grizzly produced a double-walled cooler certified to keep bears out of your provisions. Its hinges are molded into the box and set with stainless-steel pins while the brass latching system takes shackle padlocks. The companies estimate that a full chest of ice would take over 11 days to melt in 80-degree temperatures. The critter-proof case also holds over a hundred 12-ounce cans, which is good if you're worried about bears going after your brew.
