Not functional for what I needed.
The cooler portion was a good size, but it made the top part so small it wasn’t really usable as a backpack or for a large camera, etc. Also the straps are pretty thin, when that thing is loaded up/heavy those straps aren’t going to be comfortable for too long...

I am very pleased with this product from Carhartt
I like it so much that I'm going to get another one. I have the black one, I use it for work. I am getting the tan one for hikes and fishing trips!

honestly, is this backpack ever going to be back in stock? am i wasting my time checking up on it? specifically in black.
emily h on May 6, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We should have stock early next week.
How do you clean this backpack cooler?
A shopper on May 4, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I believe you can put it in the washer. I use it for work, so I don’t really worry about the outside because it just gets dirty anyways. I usually just wipe the cooler part out with a sanitizing wipe when needed.
Will this work for a diaper bag?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I would say yes (because anything can be a diaper bag, really) but with the caveat that it might not have as many compartments to keep organized as you might like. The top is just a regular backpack so it’s really easy for stuff to get all scrambled around.
Is it leak proof?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I’ve never used ice, but have used ice packs and have never had any leaking on the bottom cooler part
Is it leak proof?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2020
Is there an insert for the cooler? I have experienced issues with crushed lunch...
A shopper on Jun 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We will not have an insert for this style at this time.
What are the loops on the straps for?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have used the loops to carry large markers, loop safety glasses thru, or clip keys to them.
Can the top compartment fit a smaller laptop?
A shopper on Dec 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I put my 13" MacBook Air in its soft cover zip case and put the whole thing in the top compartment. (It took just a minimum effort to stretch corners of backpack over corners of computerese.) Then added a pretty good size hardcover book, plus my glasses case. It was heavy but all fit fine.
Does the pack have smaller compartments or mesh pockets inside the non-cooler section for small item organization? I regularly carry small items such as sunscreen/phone charger/toothpicks etc. and I’m tired of having to dig through everything else to get what I want. This looks like it might be the answer I’ve been looking for.
A shopper on Oct 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: In the actual cooler part there is a mesh container on the top. You can easily put toothpicks, charger, etc. I use this backpack everyday to head into work and for lunches. I work on the beach and in harsh conditions and so far there’s no ware or tear.
Will a binder fit in the top?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A full size binder will sadly NOT fit. It barely pops out the pocket, but no, I wouldn’t recommend putting one in.
can i fit a hardhat in the top compartment?
Cristian K on Jul 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes I bought it for my son and he said yes a hardhat should fit. And he absolutely love the bag.
Will an ipad fit in the top compartment?
A shopper on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It is big enough that any regular sized tablet can if inside, I use it for work and carry an iPad with me most days.
How sturdy is the cooler bottom? Want to store my lunch in the cooler compartment but worried the weight from my items in the top compartment would crush the lunch underneath in the cooler compartment.
A shopper on Apr 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi! I got my boyfriend this for Christmas. And he absolutely loves it!!! It’s very sturdy as we were worried about the same thing. He is a landscaper so the top compartment does get heavy. He uses the bottom for his lunch and has not had a problem with it at all!
What is the size of the cooler compartment?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Length 12inches
Width 8 inches
Depth 4 3/4 inches
Is this backpack washable?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is spot clean only.
Is there anything else holding the cooler to the bag besides the zipper. What happens if the zipper fails. I really want to purchase this but that is my only real concern. Maybe a snap clip from the cooler to the main compartment?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The cooler compartment is not fully detachable. On the back side, it is sewn to the upper part of the backpack. If you run into any concerns with your backpack, please contact Customer Service.
I've seen this item in black from another website but not yours. Is that real or is brown really the only color?
Richard G on Dec 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The bag is also available in black through some of our retail partners. However, carhartt.com is only offering it in brown at this time.
Is this backpack American Made ?
A shopper on Oct 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: THIS PRODUCT IS IMPORTED.
Will you offer it in more colors?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This backpack will only come in Carhartt Brown at this time.
Can you put ice in the cooler compartment? Will water leak through?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It has a zipper top. As long as you dont overfill and keep it upright its great.
How long will the cooler keep contents cold?
A shopper on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It does a good job at keeping items cold. I pack lunch in my cooler and put a little ice pack in there. It will keep contents cold for at least 6 hours. I also use it in the winter for food and it does a great job keeping contents from freezing!
Anymore consideration to make this in black? Required to carry a black bag for work.
A shopper on Aug 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We'll be glad to pass your feedback along.
What is the weight of the bag ?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This bag weighs 1.47 lbs.
