Compact, spacious cooler bags & backpacks on the rise


Larger styles, detachable compartments and other design enhancements increase storage space.



  • Larger bags: Catering to the requirements of camping and other outdoor activities, China suppliers are releasing cooler bags that are 20 to 30 percent larger than designs for holding lunch. Backpacks, trolleys and metal-framed baskets are increasing.
  • Additional compartments: Makers are keeping models compact but expanding storage capacity by adding exterior pockets and compartments. Foldable sections serve as bottle, flatware and cutlery set holders. Plastic containers are also bundled in some releases.
  • Wider aesthetic selection: Colorful designs, including those with dotted, floral and striped patterns, are on the rise, although models in solid colors remain popular. Cubic constructions are common in outdoor versions, while models for wine bottles are typically cylindrical. Cooler bags for children come in round, triangular and novelty shapes.
  • More add-ons: Cutlery sets, cookware, napkin and mats are bundled in the latest picnic cooler bags. Units for children include lunch boxes and forks. Several releases have built-in radios and temperature gauges.
