When I go on a picnic or head to the beach, there’s nothing worse than having to juggle a heavy cooler alongside the rest of my outdoor gear. That’s why I’m partial to backpack coolers, which allow you to keep your food and beverages cool while keeping both of your hands free. If you’re in the market for one, I recommend swinging by Aldi, which is currently selling roomy backpack coolers for only $10 apiece.

TikTok content creator Alyssa (@aldi_finds4u) shared the find in a recent video rounding up new Aldi homeware additions.

“[Aldi] had a lot of different [backpack cooler] options to choose from,” Alyssa said as her camera panned over a yellow backpack cooler with fruit accents. “I love this citrus one; it’s really cute. Perfect for summer.”

Hailing from the brand Crane, the backpack is officially known as the 12-Cans Backpack Cooler and, as the name suggests, it can hold up to 12 canned drinks or a bunch of smaller snacks (because you never know when hunger will strike!). It’s currently available in four patterns: yellow with a fruit pattern, black and white, blue with a scales pattern, and pink with a palm leaves pattern.

Made from recycled material, the backpack cooler also features a front zipper pocket perfect for holding your keys or wallet, as well as adjustable shoulder straps to keep you comfortable as you trek around the outdoors.

If you’re not planning on heading to your local Aldi store, you can order the backpack cooler for pickup or delivery from the brand’s online shopping website. Alternatively, you can order it for delivery from Instacart depending on availability, or pick up a similar 12×16-inch backpack cooler from Five Below for $5.
