Default Ozark trail soft cooler

Walmart has the 24 can for 39.99 and 36 can for 49.99. Any THT reviews on these? Thinking about one for carrying beers on atv.

I use mine extensively. No leaks what so ever. I do not place it upside down on the zipper though. Not sure why anyone would.

Alternative... if you have a Buc-ee's nearby...
The soft-sided Buc-hide soft-sided strap handle 24 quart cooler in Realtree or solid colors sells for $20. Looks and performs much like my buddy's Yeti Hopper. ($300)

Of course, YMMV.

I have both sizes and they are great. The zipper is not water tight, however thats not something I needed. They are less boxy then the RTIC which I also have, which allows it to fit in the car better behind the seats.

I use mine as a travel cooler mostly, and on the boat for a short trip. Filled full with ice and drinks both sizes will last about 2 days with decent ice quality. I usually put about 18 drinks in the small one and 24 in the bigger one. Neither have ever leaked from the bottom and some days I'll leave them in the garage sitting for a couple days with water before I empty out the cooler.

I can say the YETI is the only one that consistently does not leak. The older soft side model is on sale for $199 now. Its difficult to fill with ice which is why its now on sale and redesigned. But I can put up with it as it works really well.

Take a look here. They didn't test the one from Walmart but they did test a lot of others including yeti. Their recommendation is only $60.
