Gear Report: ICEMULE R-Jaunt 20L

ICEMULE Coolers is known for its unique approach to coolers and shines in creating convenient, comfortable, and incredibly versatile products. The R-Jaunt 20L backpack cooler is no exception, and between the vast amount of cooler space, the easy-close top, and the comfortable backpack design, it has quickly become a staple for my weekend adventures this season.

I tested the ICEMULE R-Jaunt on summer hiking and camping trips in Montana. The cooler adventured with me on hot, exposed trails and shady, river-side afternoons alike. I put it to the test by carrying a mix of food and beverages over the past few weeks.

First Impressions of the ICEMULE R-Jaunt 20L

Upon taking the cooler out of the box, I was immediately impressed with the size of the product, as well as the durability of the fabric. All plastic components on the R-Jaunt are made from recycled materials, and the entire cooler is coated with a biodegradable TPU waterproof coating.

ICEMULE’s signature feature – the backpack straps on the cooler – are padded and incredibly comfortable, and the air valve is amazing for compressing the cooler down as you start eating or drinking the goodies you packed inside.

Additionally, the roll-top closure and the side clips allow for quickly grabbing items from the cooler and packing the cooler down to a small and easy-to-carry size.

The cooler is killer for the summer months when you want to stay active but don’t want to lug a heavy cooler with you down a rocky trail.

The R-Jaunt enables you to pack out cold beverages and perishable food to even the most remote locations, and I’ve been taking advantage of the doors this cooler has been unlocking this summer.

The Best Part of the ICEMULE R-Jaunt 20L

The R-Jaunt can hold a whopping 20 cans of your favorite beverage + 10 pounds of ice or about 35 cans without any ice. What’s more, it has the power to retain ice for up to 24 hours.

I loved being able to pack out enough for both myself and some friends, and our drinks stayed cool despite triple-digit temperatures in Montana. The cooler also features a waterproof front zipper which I found great for small items like bottle openers or packing out bottle tops.
