When hosting an outdoor event, such as a barbecue or a tailgate, inflatable coolers are an excellent way to save space, time, and frustration all while keeping your drinks cool.
Inflatable coolers can be purchased in many styles, even floating versions for water activities. However, you can achieve the same result with any inflatable device capable of holding water, such as an inflatable pool.
Using an inflatable cooler is a simple as blowing up the device, filling it with ice, and placing your drinks inside to cool. This is exceptionally useful for tailgaters or anyone planning a party where they have to travel to the location. The cooler can be transported in its folded state and therefore save all of the space that would have otherwise been allotted for insulated coolers. Once on site, the item is blown up and prepared and the drinks are then placed inside. At the end of a tailgate or camping event, the cooler can be disassembled and packaged for easy transport on the return journey.
For larger events, such as a backyard barbecue, these pools are the best option for two primary reasons. The first reason is that the wide surface space of the inflatable device allows it to hold many containers at once. Additionally, the open surface allows guests to have a clear view of all of the varieties of drink that may be provided. This is especially helpful if you have a mixture of alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks in the same cooler. They can be lined up neatly on opposite sides of the inflatable cooler, which can then be labeled to prevent confusion.
An inflatable cooler is the ideal option when providing refreshments for a large group of people. The open format allows guests to freely grab their drink of choice without having to wait for a turn beneath the lid of an insulated cooler. Most inflatable coolers are circular or rectangular. This allows guests to approach the area from multiple sides. Additionally, the coolers can be set up on a table or on the ground in a location that is easily accessible, yet out-of-the-way.
As inflatable coolers become more popular, due to their convenience, there are an increasing number of styles and accessories that will continue to make this device suitable for a variety of needs. One example, is the floating cooler that can be towed behind a canoe or kayak. This not only keeps your refreshments safe but also frees up space in your boat of choice.
If you struggle with the management of space at your tailgate, entertain large groups of people, or provide a variety of drinks that need to be separated, then an inflatable cooler is a necessity for your next entertaining event. So, go out and get one!
