It's best to be prepared for anything when visiting the golf course, rain, wind, even unbearably bright sunshine. In the latter situation keeping cool can sometimes feel like an impossible task. Especially when the temperature doesn't seem to stop rising! Hydration and protection are key when it comes to defending yourself from the negative effects of the sun. This can be done a number of ways, like with the assistance of sunscreen, a cooling towel, breathable footwear/clothing. All of these things work together to prevent sunburn, overheating, dehydration, and other negative effects of the sun. However, one of the best ways to beat these issues is to come adequately prepared. Anyone who has ever done through an unbearably hot day where they've not only been in the sun for most of it but has also been actively doing stuff in it knows how refreshing a chilled sip of water is. That's one of the reasons why you should consider upping your cooler box game with a specially designed cooler backpack.

Not only does it offer plenty of storage for your drinks, but its a great place to store your food. It's also a great place to store your cooling towel too, giving it a little extra cooling edge to it. The additional storage a larger cooler provides also provides your golf buddies with a great little place to store their drinks too!
Because these coolers are also backpacks, it means transporting them around the course is so easy. Simply wear it on your back, or store and transport it on your golf buggy! It's ever so simple!

Of course, coolers don't have to be used in the summer, the insulated lining is also great for keeping your hot food and drinks warm too, the choice is yours to make.

But with so many coolers, particularly backpack coolers, to choose from, which one should you naturally turn to when it becomes time to invest in a new one?

Well, we're here to tell you that you should consider purchasing the Ozark Trail Premium Leakight Backpack. It offers not only incredible storage but also outstanding insulation for all your warm-weather essentials!

Because of its neat backpack design, its easy to transport and move around with on the golf course, but it's also ideal for hiking and camping too! This truly is a multipurpose bag!

The Ozark Trail coolers are well known for their incredible quality and a vast range of coolers available for purchase. While they may be a Walmart brand (from what we found online) they still sell their products on a vast range of websites. The brand's mission is to connect high-quality and luxurious elements, alongside a noteworthy ice life and affordability that everyone would be able to afford. The brand employs some big-name designers to supply you with the very latest in cooling technology and design while keeping their prices low for anyone on a budget. As I said, these coolers are multi-purpose products that can be used for a wide range of items are a verity of occasions.

Here are just a few reasons why you should consider purchasing the Leak Tight Backpack Cooler from Ozark Trail.

Editor's Pros & Cons
  • The adjustable straps allow you to personalize the fit to not only sit comfortably on your chest but also fit your body properly. This offers unlimited comfort.
  • Padded back section acts as a buffer, protecting your back from bulky or pointy items within the bag and preventing them from damaging your back/spine.
  • With plenty of internal storage, you'll have a lot of space to store food, drinks and so much more. Which is ideal for surviving warm weather on the golf course.
  • The Ice Life of this bag is up to 24 hours, meaning you have plenty of time to keep your items nice and chilled before they'll start to warm up.
  • The overall color scheme and the lack of choice of colors may not be desirable for some would-be wearers.


Generally speaking, this bag's sense of style is rather modest and toned down in comparison to other backpacks we've talked about. But this is something that is obviously due to the nature/purpose of this backpack. Generally speaking, we would usually mention that how a bag or products looks will play a part in your decision in purchasing it. However, this bag is one of the main exceptions to that overall rule. The sole purpose of this bag is to keep your items cool, so its overall style and design is not an essential point of consideration.

But despite this, there are a few interesting design/style details to mention, such as the modernized feel this bag gives. The streamlined sides and 'back to basics' feel helps the bag stand out while also differentiating itself as a backpack cooler than your traditional backpack, which is a nice feature. Especially when you're trying to find this bag in a rush.

This bag features elasticated strap detailing on its lid, which is ideal for storing items like clip-on torches, papers, and other essentials. But there is also a number of loops and plastic clips across the surface of this cooler backpack that also serves similar purposes. This helps make this bag multi-purpose, in the sense its not just limited to the golf course. It can be used for hiking, camping, picnicking and much more.

This bag really stands out from other backpack styles we've previously reviewed and talked about. While it doesn't have a certain sports-luxe feel to it, it does have a certain contemporary charm to it that is hard to find in most coolers.

Also, in comparison to other Ozark Trail products, you can tell they have taken a different approach in its overall design. The creators and used some understated colors and mixed them with attention-grabbing orange. As I mentioned beforehand, the options in terms of colors are very limited, as you only really have two options to choose from, none of which will inspire your personal sense of fashion and style. But, that just means they'll easily blend into your overall look.

Comfort & Support

Because this cooler backpack is namely for a whole bunch of different activities, from golfing to camping, it's safe to assume that you will be wearing it for quite a while and in a wide range of situations, which means one thing and one thing only. It has to be comfortable.

Most of us would naturally assume that backpacks were designed with comfort in mind, but this isn't necessarily true. There are some bags currently available on the market that are rather lacking in the comfort and support department. Typically there are a few things that are signs of superior comfort and support, these include the use and location of padding (usually found in the straps), whether there is cushioning at the back of the back, and how well it fits (however we will cover this later).

As we mentioned beforehand, the padding found in the back of the bag helps supports and defend your back/spine from the contents of the internal compartment. This cushions you while also providing excellent protection from potential injuries (especially if you're wearing this bag over long periods of time). Not only that but it helps insulate the contents of the bag while also preventing wear and tear, thus helping the bag's overall durability.

This bag also features thick, padded straps that prevent rubbing in the armpit region (a nasty symptom of overexposure to an uncomfortable bag). This helps relieve some of the pressure weighing down onto your shoulders, for a more comfortable and supportive fit. Furthermore, these straps are adjustable, putting you in control of the fit and how it sits on your body.


Obviously, when you're spending any amount of money on a new product, you want to go into the purchase knowing you have a reasonable lifespan of said product. Traditionally, a marker of this over quality and durability lies within its price tag and you get what you pay for. However, because Ozark Trail has specially designed all of their coolers to offer high-quality performances and long ice life span at affordable prices that everyone will appreciate. So, when you consider that the typical approach to evaluating the overall quality based on the price naturally doesn't apply here.

Overall, this bag was designed with you and it's own longevity in mind. You can see the attention to detail put into the making of this bag, most of which add to its overall endurance.

A good example of this is the bag's padded back, as we mentioned this offers a cushioning effect, but it also acts as an extra layer of protection for the bag. This bagging acts as a buffer, protecting it from any unwanted damage.

This bag is also waterproof externally and watertight internally, meaning no more soaking wet bags that soak your clothes and other items! This also helps prevent your bag from becoming damaged due to a high level of exposure to water.

How much weight a bag can take can also greatly affect its overall performance and durability. If it is overpacked, this will not only damage your back, spine, and posture, but also the bag itself! Because this cooler is a bag rather than a trunk, it means it's limited in the space available and how many weighty items it can carry. While it may be a sturdy and resilient bag, it's not built to tackle overly heavy loads. Ideally, you will want to stick with carrying light to midweight items within this bag. This will not only protect you but also prevent the bag from easily falling apart.


Because this bag was designed as a cooler, naturally there isn't a lot of internal storage compartments. Traditionally, backpacks have at least two internal compartments, however, this bag has one large section. This section is spacious enough to fit plenty of ice inside it alongside space for 20 cans.

This spacious internal compartment is circular in shape and has a design that is similar to a bucket bag. Obviously, the back of the bag is flattened to properly suit your back and sit comfortably against it.

This bag does have a small zip located on the front, enabling you to carry a few small essentials. However, due to the size, it is unlikely that this pocket will provide you with a lot of space.

This bag also features a number of loops and clipping areas, which provides you with a little extra storage for clip-on items like lanterns while the loops will provide adequate storage for flannels and similar items.

Overall, the storage in this bag is what you would expect. It's limited, yet it provides enough space for its main goal and purpose.
