HOPPER SOFT COOLERS
The Hopper® was built for those adventures where you want to grab your gear and go. It’s the original 100% leakproof, ice-for-days portable cooler. And because we used materials found in things like HazMat suits and whitewater rafts, it’s also tough as nails.

How Do I Clean My Hopper® Soft Cooler?
To clean your Hopper Soft Cooler, a mixture of dish soap and water should do the trick. Rinse with freshwater and then thoroughly wipe the inside dry with a cloth or paper towel. Leave the zipper open for several days to ensure all moisture has dried.
Additionally, taking care of the zipper is extremely important to your soft cooler’s functionality and durability. Each Hopper comes with a small tube of lubricant which should be applied following cleaning, before storage, and anytime the zipper feels stiff. Make sure the soft cooler’s zipper is always free of dirt, grime, or other debris for maximum performance and life. For storing, always put away your Hopper in the fully closed position, making sure the inside is completely dry.
WARNING: Do not machine wash. Do not dry in an oven or clothes dryer. Do not use bleach.
Why Is My Hopper Soft Cooler So Stiff and Hard To Open?
Like a good pair of boots or a quality baseball glove, Hopper Soft Coolers take a little time to break-in. The extremely durable materials of the Hopper Soft Cooler can feel rigid when first put into action, however, loading and unloading contents will become easier as the materials relax with use.
The HydroLok Zipper on all Hopper Soft Coolers is as durable as they come and with a little care and maintenance can last season after season. We recommend long-term storage with the zipper in the fully closed position to help protect the U-Dock™ seal. We also recommend regular application of the included zipper lubricant—especially when putting into storage—by carefully applying the lube to the U-Dock front, back, and inside.
