The Kelty Folding Cooler isn’t the burliest icebox around—in other words, it won’t double as an extra seat around the fire—but it’s handy nonetheless. Four molded cup holders in the lid keep your beer from spilling, and the soft, foam-lined sides collapse for easy storage back in civilization. A reinforced plastic bottom makes this cooler durable enough to keep your drinks cold around many a roaring fire. ($46; kelty.com)
