Petromax 22-litre Cooler Bag In Olive

This Petromax 22-litre Cooler Bag is marketed as essential basic gear for spending 4-6 days outdoors independent from batteries and electricity, says Mike Gormley.


Well summer may be drawing to a close, but we often have a need to keep things cool all year round. This may be when you are heading off to a party, to a summer BBQ or for a Christmas trip and need to keep the beers and wine at a drinkable temperature and the food chilled. Alternatively, you may just need to keep things cool on the way back from shopping, or perhaps you are off for a family or group camp and need to keep you valued food supply temperature-safe as you travel.

There is plenty of capacity in this 22 litre cool box ~ three bottles in the bottom to give scale with room for plenty more ~ note the way the top sits into the main body to offer very good insulation [© MG]

The Petromax Cooler Bag is a serious 22 litre capacity item of gear which will do all of the above things; just add freezer packs or ice. This is a high spec cool bag and I really wish I had owned one of these when I lived and worked in South Africa. It would have been just perfect for our 4×4 camping trips out in the bush and down to the beach.

This cool box has a serious thickness of insulation material, approx. 30mm all around including the base, and importantly the lid is double this; it fits neatly onto the main body of the bag and has a full waterproof zip closure. There is a removable shoulder strap, zipped pockets front and rear, and mesh side pockets ~ handy for those odd bits and bobs. There is even a sneaky bottle opener secured to one of the straps so no excuse if you forget your main one. These straps can be used to help secure the cool box when in transit in a vehicle or boat. On the top of the lid is a substantial carry handle.

All in all, this is a serious cool bag of good capacity, measuring approximately 430x345x345mm. If 22 litres is a bit on the large size for your needs, there is also an 8 litre version.

The top handle is a good strong one for both carrying when full and lifting [© MG]

The Petromax 22-litre Cooler Bag is available, in Olive as here but also in Sand and Dark Grey, from many good camping and outdoor outlets or direct from our friends at Whitby & Co.
