Technical Informations

20 litres You will find a zipped pocket and a mesh pocket on the outside, which are separate from the cool box, for keeping belongings dry (wallet, key, map, camera, etc.) Inside, you will find a mesh pocket for organising your belongings and managing your food, a system for keeping a water bladder or water bottles upright during transportation, as well as a place for your ice pack bearing the snowflake sign.
Please note! This backpack is not watertight on the inside, i.e. the base of the backpack does not retain water. Condensation can sometimes form on the inside of the bag resulting in drops of water getting through the seams. Don't worry, this is a rare occurrence and it prevents your food from getting wet.

Our design team imagined, considered and designed the Quechua products in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc. We test them in the field with other campers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. Whether it is the Jura or the Auvergne, we visit as many locations as possible, in all weather conditions. These field tests involve lots of discussions, which are very useful in getting your feedback and foreseeing our future products!

Test Product
The EN 12546-2 European standard shows the insulation rating of the cool box without an ice box. In order to pass this standard, tests are conducted by an independent laboratory. With an ambient temperature of 32°C, water at 5°C is placed inside the ice compartment. Then, the time it takes for the water to warm up to a temperature of 15 °C is measured. For this cool box, the time taken is 6 hours.

Stockage Tips
Wash and dry before storing. Store in a clean and dry place.

Keep Your Cool
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
An excellent product. Delivery was very good. Keeps food and drink cool for a long time. Ice pack pocket is a good idea.
The only improvement I would like to see would be a chest strap.
Great Product
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Cannot fault great size
Good looking, excellent design
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Purchased this for my replacement work lunch bag, was going to go for the smaller 10L bag but went for this in the end. I also looked at about a thousand cool bags on eBay, Amazon etc. Most are cheap looking and probably won’t last long. This bag has a lot of features, is well made and has plenty of room to keep a builder in supplies all day long.
Not to pricey either. It did take over 2 weeks to arrive though.
Ideal size
Used for 7 to 12 months
Holidaying in France decided needed a cooler as we would be out exploring and this is ideal carried enough to get us through some really hot days
Good item
Used for 1 week or less
Brighter red than the picture but does what it says
Cool Bag - Best on the Market!
Used for 3 to 6 months
I had the earlier version of this which gave me years and years of excellent service, until I seriously overloaded it with paperwork and ruined it!
I needed a replacement, and this is everything it was plus more. Whoever designed this version clearly understood that the top access needed to be larger, and when you unzip this one, it has 100% access. With ice packs it keeps your food and water lovely and cool. However! - My main use is to walk to and from the Fish and Chip Shop once a week. The food stays brilliantly hot even in the winter. Everyone in the Chip shop looks at my bag, and wishes they had one too!
Used for 3 to 6 months
Awesome cool bag for my husband, with 3 flat ice packs they keep cold all day on 30 degree heat.
Mould after used icepack
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought that two month ago. It is very comfortable but after freguently use with icepack get moulded. That is not watherproof material so no point clean mould becouse will still keep coming. So I had to throw that bag to the bin. They should put watherproof material inside for easy cleaning.
