Costco has one that folds up small when not in use, like a briefcase. It also comes with a detachable, collapsable dolley, like the ones on airport-style travel bags. I have one and it works great. . . $24.95.

i have the polar bear ones that Sloman posted the link for. i cant even begin to tell you how happy i am with them. have had' em for about 8 years now and they are as good as the day i got them (and i use them alot). very well made and i have yet to see a cooler that can keep ice as long. NEVER leak. well worth the money

They have a lifetime warranty and will not sweat! I bought mine at the Miami boat show. They're the sh*t in soft sided coolers.
I have quite a few different sizes of the Horizons coolers and they are the best.
I had one leak on me and they repaired it free of charge.
It was my fault because I broke a bottle in it.
Boy does it keep those beers cold
Can't wait to try 'em out again!(The cooler and the beers )

All the T-Dock gang in hammond uses the coolers from Horizon. They last very well and have not had any problems with color run. I have red and navy but others have purple and other colors. The 24 pack with ice starts getting a bit heavy but manageable. The 36 and 48 are better suited for large bulky items that are not so heavy. You can also get to their website at www.softcoolers.com You can find them at several boatshows as well.
