Granite Rocx Tahoe Backpack Cooler


If you’re the type to pack everything plus the kitchen sink when going on adventures, then you will love the Tahoe Backpack Cooler by Granite Rocx. This backpack not only will carry all your gadgets and toys, but. it can also externally carry a flat folding beach chair, folding camp chair, beach towel, and two water bottles all at the same time.

It accomplishes this with a large compartment that unzips to reveal straps that allow you to carry nearly any kind of flat folding beach chair. There are also two straps at the bottom of the backpack that allow the carrying of other kinds of folding chairs. I also found these bottom straps to be quite useful for carrying a tent or sleeping bag. The front bungee system is designed for carrying a beach towel or coat. It’s also quite useful for carrying a small to medium sized camera tripod.

My favorite feature of this backpack is the small cooler that connects to the back of the backpack. This little cooler has plenty of room for a couple drinks and a pack lunch for two. It also comes with a detachable shoulder strap, which allows it to be used independently from the backpack if needed.

To help evenly distribute the weight of all your gear, an adjustable waist strap and chest strap are built-in. The shoulder straps have adequate padding, and the left one has a mesh pocket for holding a cellphone or small walkie-talkie. I found it to be a useful spot to carry a few granola bars for easy access to a quick snack while hiking without needing to remove the backpack.

The main large zipper compartment has enough room to carry a few days worth of clothes and a couple other medium-sized items such as books, binoculars, cook set, shoes, or mask/snorkel. There is also an organizer zipper pocket that contains multiple inner pockets to keep all your smaller gadgets and accessories from being misplaced.

In my testing, I found this backpack to be very versatile and highly effective for carrying all kinds of gear for anyone who enjoys a trip to the beach, lakefront, hilltop, or even for traveling abroad.
