Trunk Area

Organize trunk chaos with a 3-in-1 Cargo Cooler Tote.

Perfect for a day trip to the farmers market or a cross-country adventure, this tote features a zippered, insulated compartment for keeping food cold and two side compartments that can hold everything from standard grocery bas to a must-have AAA emergency Roadside Kit.

Open or close the side fasteners to use it 3 ways: as a carry tote for one bag, a single tote with frozen food compartment, or two totes with frozen food compartment. Place an ice pack into the zip-close insulated compartment to keep chilled foods cold – perfect for picnics!  And the mesh side pocket holds smaller items like utensils or maps for quick access.

When not in use, it easily folds down to a compact 10” x 12” size for out-of-the-way storage in the car or garage.
