Igloo 9050 Glacier Cooler Review




(You may read about my review policy here. All opinions are my own.)

When I was asked to review a product from the online retailer apparelnbags.com, my only problem was deciding what product to review! Apparelnbags sells men's, women's and children's athletic apparel (think T-shirts and sweatshirts) as well as outerwear, headwear and bags/totes. I finally opted to review their awesome Igloo 9050 Glacier Cooler. It is summer, you know. What better time to try a new soft sided cooler?

The Igloo 9050 Glacier Cooler is supposed to hold 14 cans. I figured with a family of five that might just come in handy on some of our summer outings. Unfortunately, we didn't have it in time for our beach vacation, but I did test it out at home. I filled it with 12 cold soda cans and a freezer pack. Seven hours later the cans were still cold. I'd say I was pretty happy with the result.

One of the neater features of the cooler is that it has a removable anti-microbial liner. You can take it out and clean it, then pop it right back in. For me, that was key. There's no worry that the cooler will get moldy and gross inside after someone forgets to clean it and then dry it out after using it.



Another feature is that it has this cool opening in the top that allows you to grab a can without actually having to unzip the bag. This feature will be a godsend on our two-day drives back east. It's always a pain to have to unzip the cooler for that water or soda while you're driving (the rest of the car is asleep so no one can help you.....am I the only one who experiences this on road trips? Oh well.) Anyway, it's a great feature for our family.


It also has a bunch of pockets for incidentals like napkins and cutlery. I mean, like four pockets. Two on the side and two in the front. It's nice to have separate compartments for all your small stuff. So do you use coolers in your family? What do you use them for?  

You should know that the Igloo brand is the most recognized brand in coolers. They offer more than 500 different products sold through more than 15,000 outlets in the US and around the world. Whether you are enjoying summer fun at the beach, watching the kids’ soccer game, entertaining friends or just enjoying a weekend of boating or fishing it’s there, somewhere in the background. It’s an Igloo cooler. I know we are going to get a boatload of use out of ours.

Just check out apparelnbags.com and see what I mean. There's so much to choose from, and their prices are more than reasonable. Thank you, apparelnbags.com, for providing me with the cooler to review. All opinions are my own.

So what do you have planned to get done this week? I'm currently working on two projects simultaneously (sound familiar?) but I hope I'll to be able to share at least one of them with you soon. Hope you're having a great week!

Vintage Inspired Freshly Squeezed Lemonade Serving Trays

Sam's Club vintage inspired "Lemonade" serving trays

I know some people are talking about Christmas in July sales and the fact that
Hobby Lobby is already selling fall décor items. But not me. For me, summer
isn't over until the first leaf falls. I guess I'm in the minority, but in light of
the Midwest winters we've experienced, I'm not all that antsy for

99 Cents Ralph Lauren Down Pillows and Gallery Wall Sneak Peek

Ralph Lauren fuschia flowers down pillows

I kid you not, people. I snagged four - count 'em four - Ralph Lauren down throw pillows
for $.99 each at my local Club G.W. (that's Goodwill for the uninitiated). I have to say
that when I first saw them I was thinking strictly along the lines of down pillow inserts
only. But after inspecting them closely I could tell that they were like-new Ralph Lauren

Friday Finds: Vintage Edition #9 {Saugatuck Antique Pavilion}

I've been a bit AWOL lately due to our recent two-week family vacation. I love the beach,
and seeing family, but it's nice to be home. Sigh. That being said, I can't wait to share with
you some of the cool vintage finds I picked up along the way in Saugatuck, MI.

Summer Flower Garden Bouquet

I've been so excited waiting for my summer flower garden to bloom. I planted it pretty
much on a wing and a prayer and really didn't know what to expect since this was my
first attempt at raised bed gardening. I've got some gorgeous blooms to share with you
today, and hopefully I'll have some advice on planting a flower garden in general once it
gets a bit later in the summer. You might remember my sneak peek of the flower garden
a few weeks ago. Today I have many more blooms to share in the form of my first
summer garden bouquet.

It seems like I can't get enough of iron-on transfer projects these days. For Father's Day
I made my husband a King of the Grill apron with an iron-on printable. Today I'd like
to share with you another project that was made as a gift for one of my daughter's friends.
