    Looking for recommendations for a new soft cooler/bag to take to bottle shares, preferably something that's got a shoulder strap. Anyone have some examples they are particularly fond of?

    I wish they kept the same style from the OG one from 2010/2011. It's bigger and has a nice embroidered FW logo on the front pocket. Mine is getting beat to shit after four DLD's and countless bottle shares.

    I'm a fan of the bags the Bruery handed out last year for Reserve.

    tis handy for hunting, fishing, and drinking. the cushioned swivel seat is also nice for when you might of had one too many.

    Consider getting a backpacky thing (this is the one I have):

    Having the second strap isn’t anywhere near as metrosexual as a single strap but it makes all the difference in the world when you’re hauling a bunch of bottles and growlers from a parking lot half that’s much too far from your destination. And all the extra pockets and bits are great for bringing glassware, water, etc.

    They have this bag at my local Target, how is it in terms of volume? I'm thinking I may just grab this so I have something for Huna Day, then look for another option later.

    Yeah some of my friends have this, really nice.

    You can put at least 6 bombers in there. Probably more, but haven’t tried. [edit]: If I remember I’ll try tonight.

    This is what I rock.
    I won it at a New Belgium event.
    It's great besides being Bronco's colors...

    I think we fit 8 750's in it comfortably. It's designed to hold a case of cans though.

    Followup: 6 bombers very comfortably, and 7 very uncomfortably.

    I've wanted to bite the bullet on this numerous times, but that shipping cost kills me. I might just go ahead and do it though, since I don't really have a viable way to transport bottles anymore.

    Supposedly the Costco cooler bags that are available a few times a year are amazing, fit a shit-ton, and only like $6.

    Whole Foods bag I posted above will do the same as that FSW bag.
