We loaded the RollR with beverages and ice, plus some items in the Wagon Bin, and it stood up to our test admirably. The ice stayed frozen significantly longer than in the other coolers in our collection, and our reislings and sauv blancs remained perfectly chilled.

In the world of coolers, some are tame, suited more for the summer concert series, and some are wild and ready for a backcountry experience. The line of RollR coolers from RovR Products definitely falls into the latter category. Even at first glance, the boxy 45-quart RollR, with 9-inch all-terrain tires and spoked-aluminum wheels, stands out from the crowd. A gasket around the lid helps keep cold air in and warm air out. The pop-up box called the Wagon Bin makes a convenient place to put blankets, tablecloths or other dry goods while in transit. It folds down and straps to the top of the cooler, doubling as a seat pad. Add-ons include a Prepping Board ($39.99), Dual Cup Holders ($24.99) and a BikR Kit for towing the cooler with a bike ($54). RovR claims its coolers are certified bear-resistant, but our conversations with park rangers remind us that even the bear canisters used by backpackers can still end up at the bottom of a canyon. Bears may not have gotten the food, but neither will the backpackers, who will never see their canisters again. MSRP: $369
