You have a problem. You want to haul a few cold beers up your favorite peak, but toting a full cooler isn’t feasible.
That’s why Andrew Blevins came up with Cold Shoulder Bags—backpacks that hold a removable soft-shell cooler that will keep your favorite micro-brews icy cold. There’s a built-in beer opener, too.
Belvins isn’t the first to create a product like this, but his packs are particularly nice because they also include a fleece-lined laptop sleeve and roll-top, so they'll pull double duty on your morning commute.
