A cooler really has just one job: Keeping drinks cool. The TOURIT Voyager does that very well. The company even provides a lengthy warranty to back up their product.
Let’s take a quick look at the TOURIT Voyager 20-can Soft Cooler to see just what you get and what makes it the best camping cooler for most trips.
If you’re in a hurry and just want to check the pricing and availability of the Voyager at Amazon, you can click (or tap) the link just below.
Features and Options for the Voyager 20 Can Cooler
While there are under counter beverage coolers that can hold more, you can’t – by definition – take them along with you on a camping trip.
Since this is tagged as a “20-can” cooler, you might at first think you have no options in this department. And, strictly speaking, I guess you don’t. However, you can get virtually the same cooler in a 30-can size.
The larger cooler would be handy for a larger family or any other gathering involving more than a few people. (Note: You’ll find the 30-can cooler on the same Amazon page as the 20-can version.)
The main option beside size is color. You can get the Voyager in any of these four shades.
- Cool Gray
- Navy Blue
- Dark Gray
Cool gray is light gray, as opposed to the dark gray or black choices.
As far as capacity goes, there seems to be some disagreement, even on the manufacturer’s website. Obviously you can get at least 20 standard size cans to fit inside – in an upper and a lower tier.
But you might be able to fit more than 20 in there. As you can see in the pictures, there are 13 can showing in the upper tier. The might mean, as indicated in the one picture, that you can also fit 13 cans in the lower tier for a total of 26 cans.
Sadly, I don’t have a Voyager in front of me to test this, so I’m guessing that the actual capacity is somewhere between 20 and 26. It will definitely be less than 26 if you intend to include ice or ice packs inside too. The description on the manufacturer’s site does say that it “holds 20 cans plus ice”.
The case itself is waterproof and leak-proof. The zipper is so tightly constructed that they even give you some lubricant to make it slide more easily. Don’t be surprised if it’s a little tough to open and close at first.
The case is made of 3 layers of materials. The visible, outer shell should not sweat and get your other gear all wet. The middle layer is made of “high density foam” to insulate your beverages or whatever else you put inside. The inside is made of an antimicrobial liner that prevents leakage (along with the zipper) and resists mold and mildew.
TOURIT claims that you can keep things cool inside the Voyage for up to 3 days. I haven’t been able to test this, but it seems reasonable, as long as you keep it zipped shut and away from a direct source of heat.
You get a removable, padded shoulder strap for ease of carrying when your hands are full of other (camping) gear. When your hands are free, you might choose instead to use the two top, “grab-n-go” handles. These are especially useful if the cooler is full and thus relatively heavy.
All materials are BPA free and are FDA approved, in case those features are of importance to you. For most of us, getting that one job done is plenty.
Specifications of the TOURIT Voyager
I mentioned that this is a great cooler for camping, but you obviously will use it for other excursions too – picnics, tailgating, hiking, hunting, fishing, or just having fun out in the backyard.
Take this 5.1 pound cooler wherever you like. On the outside, it measures just 15 inches long by 10 inches high by just over 13 inches wide.
On the inside (for those 20 to 26 cans), you get a space measuring 12.8 inches long by 7.9 inches high by 9.9 inches wide.
TOURIT offers a full 3-year warranty. Also, if there’s a problem within the first 30 days of your purchase, contact the company for a full refund or replacement. (Of course, you’ll have to provide the usual proofs of purchase.)
Conclusions about the TOURIT Voyager
Personally, the 20-can TOURIT cooler seems to be the right size for most outings. Even if 20 can is the maximum it can hold, that’s plenty for most people.
If everyone drinks 4 cans per day, that’s enough for 5 people for one day. If you only need 3 cans per person, that’s just about enough for 7 people for a day. Or it’s enough for 3 people for 2 days. At some point, no matter how big your soft cooler is, you’re going to need to refill it on an extended trip. To me, 20 feels like the sweet spot. Obviously, your “mileage” will vary.
Remember, both the 20 and the 30 can sizes are on that page.
