Question Best Quality-Soft Sided Coolers?

Looking for good quality soft-sided coolers at a reasonable price. Anyone make such a thing? Some friends have a couple that have a lifetime warranty on the liner not to leak and said they work very well. Bag to hold 24 cans is like $60 or something crazy. I have a regular hard-side cooler/chest but no soft sides. Give me some options!!!

I've got several from the same company that Steamin' provided a link to. They maybe a little expensive but they're great. Keep things cold forever, easy to handle and do not leak (my oldest one is 6 years old).

Thumbs up American-Outdoors

It looks like american-outdoors will be the soft-sided cooler of choice for many so far. That is the brand that my friends have as well and they can't say enough good things about them. I did some reading and saw that they are guaranteed not to leak and if anything goes wrong with the cooler, send it in, and $10 later it's fixed with no questions. They are a little pricey but if they work and are guaranteed, they are worth it.

Thanks for the recommendations and keep them coming if any are different than the ones above.

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.
