Everest Cooler Review
Last Updated by Brandon F. on September 6, 2022
This is a listing of all Everest Coolers for sale that have been reviewed and we also list what we think are the best Everest Coolers with our internal ranking system. Everest is known more for their conventional backpacks, totes, etc. than they are for coolers. A vast majority of their products aren’t insulated or intended to store cool items, so at this point, the only review we can do is on their cooler lunch bag.
Simple in Its Approach
Everest’s approach when it comes to coolers is a very straightforward one. They like to keep things simple and hope that their quality does the talking. They don’t try to wow the user with tons of fancy gadgets and features. They believe that they intend to make a well-performing cooler above all else.
A Surprising Amount of Storage Areas
Despite being on the small side, these products have quite a bit of storage room for both chilled and non-chilled items. This means that you have a much better chance of being able to store ALL of your items for the day in your lunch bag instead of having to carry it another method. This is always a welcome surprise in what is considered a smaller-sized product.
Being quite small and made of lightweight materials, the Everest coolers are extremely mobile. They will fit just about anywhere, be it in your school locker, on the back of your motorcycle, and even within another bag if need be!

Insulation Ability Mobility and Durability Visual Appeal Cost Overall Rating
This is our Everest Cooler Lunch Bag Review. The Everest Cooler Lunch Bag is an offering from Everest, a company that typically specializes in larger hardware and cooling solutions. It is intended for those looking for a simple solution to keeping their lunch or picnic food cool for a few hours.
It has two separate zipper compartments (one cooled and one non-cooled) as well as side mesh enclosures to store additional items. It has a shoulder strap for carrying and an interior vinyl lining to assist with durability and waterproofness. It is available in a variety of colors and has approximately 5.5 quarts of total storage space. It is made of polyester, plastic, and some metal.
Insulation Ability –
Despite not being heavily layered with insulation and not being airtight, this product does an acceptable job of keeping items cool for a few hours until lunch. Beyond that, you won’t have much luck. Also, due to the size if you hoped to prolong the cooling life by including some ice or ice pack you will significantly lessen the amount of storage volume, which could make it no longer a viable option due to size constraints.
Mobility and Durability –
This is a very small container, which makes it very mobile and lightweight. The strap that is attached is more than enough for carrying it and can fit comfortably on your hand or shoulder. However, as mentioned above, the smallness might be a bit too small, which could impact the functionality of this lunch bag.
Many medium-sized containers or jars will struggle to fit in the inside volume and if they do, don’t expect much else to fit inside as well. It is helpful to have the additional zipper compartment and mesh enclosures but what if you need to keep more items cold? The build quality is about average but good enough for what you are getting since this won’t be under any significant weight loads. The polyester used is tough and should hold up to the occasional drop or scratch.
Visual Appeal –
Overall this is a rather plain-looking cooler bag. Beyond the zippers and the mesh, there isn’t much to look at. While not a major issue, compared to some of the other lunch bags on the market it makes this one appear to be less premium. There are a few different color options, though.
Online prices have this product at the bottom of the premium tier, mostly due to its relatively small size. But this doesn’t mean that the overall asking price is huge. But we still have to dock some points here based on the dollar per volume ratio.
Overall Rating –
The Everest Cooler Lunch Bag Review gets 2.5 coolers out of 5. There isn’t anything to get excited about here. This lunch bag is simply too small for most people’s needs and even if it will work, for the price you can find better cooling performance, features, and aesthetics.
