What is a soft cooler?

How to choose a soft cooler?

This type of bag has a large cooler compartment, whose capacity can go up to more than 50 liters. This type of lunch bag with a large volume will still be much more convenient to carry than an electric cooler that plugs into the cigarette lighter of the car.
What are the materials of the soft cooler?
Generally, an insulated bag is made with a waterproof and insulating material on the inside and a soft fabric covering on the outside. This provides an excellent compromise between thermal efficiency and the design of the lunch bag. In addition, each of our bags has been designed with high quality insulation and strong, durable materials.
The interior of the cooler bag is equipped with an aluminum foil to reflect the freshness of the contents. For higher quality models, which you will also find in our selection, there will be foam insulation offering better efficiency.
The exterior of the soft cooler is often made of waterproof and resistant materials such as nylon fabric or similar fabrics. This type of fabric provides a waterproof result and offers the best quality for colorful designs.
The great advantage of using these soft materials is the space saving and the comfort to move around. Indeed, they are much easier to carry than rigid containers by offering convenient handles to carry the bag in the hand or a shoulder strap for the shoulder. In addition, a collapsible cooler bag is much easier to store, as it only requires a small corner of the house.

How does a soft cooler work?

How long does a soft cooler keep cold?
The time it takes to keep cool is variable. It depends on the quality of the materials, the proportion of space used, the temperature of the contents and many other parameters. Generally speaking, our flexible coolers keep the cold about 6 hours. However, it is recommended to use as much space as possible, to cool down the inside of your bag before use, to put fresh food in it and to open it a minimum of times during the day.
Keeping the temperature inside your bag will also be set by the use of ice packs. Indeed, we often hear "Should we put ice in an insulated bag?" and this seems particularly important to keep the contents fresh for a long time.
Another thing to consider is the temperature outside. If you live in a warm place, it is advisable to choose a soft insulated cooler with foam to ensure optimal insulation. Opting for an insulated bag with a waterproof interior will keep the melting ice cubes cooler and will greatly improve its effectiveness.
How to wash a soft cooler?
The ease of cleaning an insulated bag should be taken into account in its choice. It is recommended to select a soft cooler with a water-repellent fabric on the outside. This waterproof material will prevent stains from becoming embedded and will be easy to clean with a simple damp sponge.
How to remove bad odors from a lunch bag?
It can happen after several uses, especially of food whose smell is quite pronounced, not to succeed in getting rid of the smell present in your lunch bag. To do this, simply fill your sink with warm water and pour in dishwashing liquid. Mix with your hand to obtain a soapy water. Then take a sponge or soaked cloth and gently rub the inside and outside of your cooler bag.
Sometimes the smell can linger and it is recommended to use baking soda. You can put it inside the bag and leave it overnight. The next day, you can repeat the above steps to clean it properly.
How do you remove mold from a cooler bag?
If your small cooler also has mold, it's crucial to get rid of it as soon as possible. To do this, take a sponge and soak it in white vinegar (not too wet, not too dry). Scrub the mildew to get rid of it completely, but be careful not to damage the fabric of your bag. Then, follow the steps to get rid of bad odors to clean your cooler completely.
Difference between soft and hard coolers
If the stay is long, it is preferable to opt for a rigid cooler which will have a better performance. Indeed, its rigid walls are thick and allow to offer a waterproof container with an effective insulation. Although it is not very portable, it is useful for long stays where a car is needed.
However, if you only need to keep your food at the right temperature for a few hours, it is worth choosing a soft cooler. Indeed, this one will allow to keep hot as well as cold, and will be very practical to transport. It can also be folded to take up a minimum of space.
Why buy a soft cooler?
The soft cooler is quite different from all the other types of insulated bags with shoulder straps that you can find. Indeed, the main difference is the ease of carrying your food and drinks anywhere.
Electric coolers are mostly made of rigid materials and are cumbersome to carry around. Our soft fabric coolers are easily folded and offer ease of movement for a picnic outing or office lunch.
Easy to transport in the car, soft coolers also have advantages. While electric models can keep things cooler longer than soft coolers, they can't retain heat. Unlike soft coolers that can keep both cold and hot.
