Gear Review: Coghlan's Cooler Light

A light for your cooler–perfect for car camping.

Ice chest

Here’s a silly-smart idea we can’t resist for car camping. Coghlan’s Cooler Light illuminates your ice chest when you open the lid: It turns on automatically when the lid is raised and darkens again upon closing (or after 20 seconds, regardless of position). That way, you never grab a hefeweizen when you sought an IPA. $8; coghlans.com
