However, they do have a few choices that do have insulation to the point that they can store cold items for a little while. It is important to note that these coolers are only meant for a small lunch or picnic and if you are looking for something more resilient or long-term then you might want to check out some other reviews.

Since most picnics require a certain level of mobility to be viable, many of Picnic Plus’ products have this in mind in their design. They are oftentimes relatively lightweight, quite small, and designed in a way that makes them very easy to carry. This even translates over to their all-in-one picnic sets which can contain quite a few items. Not optimally designing this could result in a huge amount of items that have to be carried, not even including the food and drinks themselves! Also, most of their products can have multiple carrying methods, typically including at a minimum padded shoulder straps and an overhead handle. This allows for more flexibility in how you transport the cooler to and from the picnic area.
Huge Array of Patterns and Colors
Since looks matter a lot to Picnic Plus, many of their items have a wide range of selections in regards to colors and patterns. They range from dull solid colors to bright, vivid patterns and everything in between. They are able to incorporate these various colors into their products in a way that makes them very attractive while still encouraging originality and thinking “outside of the box”. This means that no matter what your preferred style or look is, there is likely a Picnic Plus product that will agree with you.
A Surprising Amount of Storage Space
Don’t let the small size of some of their products fool you. There oftentimes are a rather impressive number of compartments, zippered pockets, and storage areas for your items located all over Picnic Plus coolers. Because of this, you are sure to find somewhere to put everything you would need for your next picnic, which reduces how many things you have to carry outside of the cooler bag or tote. This is especially noticeable on their all-in-one products, which manage to fit all sort of items while still having additional storage space for those extra items that you need.

Picnic Plus Tremont Picnic Backpack
This is a really unique product that offers quite a bit for the price. The fact that it is able to offer so many items and features while still adhering to acceptable cooling performance is a nice plus. In addition, it looks fantastic doing it. There are some quality issues but, in this case, the good outweighs the bad and would definitely recommend this product.
Pros: Great package of assorted picnic items, looks great, cooling area is serviceable enough
Cons: Very heavy for the size, might struggle to store all of your chilled items, container may fall apart over time
Picnic Plus Savoy Insulated Lunch Tote
This is an attractive product but has some underlying issues. The most significant is the simple fact that it doesn’t do a very good job of keeping items cool and it also doesn’t have a lot of storage ability for chilled items. We like the general approach here but it would need some tweaks before we would label it as a buy.
Pros: Quite roomy for being a lunch tote, plenty of storage areas, great color and pattern selection
Cons: Struggles with cold retention, not a lot of room specifically for chilled items
