On Black Friday 2020, Pelican will launch a new cooler which they say “is the first on the market to separate wet and dry storage.” Essentially, it’s got a storage compartment inside the cooler lid in which you can store low-profile (flat) items well away from the cold stuff. They even included a little ridge in there so you can prop up your phone or tablet.
A couple years back, I reviewed a small Pelican cooler here on AllOutdoor and found it to be pretty dang good. This new one is hard-sided and they’re calling it a “personal” cooler, rated at 14 quart capacity. I would expect nothing less than great quality from Pelican, and I like the integrated magnetic bottle opener on the new model.
It certainly looks a lot tougher than the old Playmate cooler Dad used as a lunchbox. You can click here to visit the Pelican coolers page and keep a lookout for this cooler, when they make it available.
Here’s the press release:
