Head Out for a Hike

The weather cools as summer ends. In the morning air there’s a crispness that means the day is going to be perfect for a hike. Day hikes are easy to prepare for and don’t take long to plan. So pack up the Dayventure Backpack Soft Cooler, secure your cell phone in a G40 Go Case, and fill your Pelican Bottle, because adventure awaits you!

Backpack It Up

The Pelican Dayventure Backpack Soft Cooler is the ideal cooler to take on a hike. Padded shoulder straps and an adjustable sternum strap make this backpack cooler comfortable to carry all day while you’re out on the trail.
The lower compartment of this backpack is a fully insulated cooler big enough to hold a six-pack of canned beverages. The leak-resistant zipper of this compartment keeps ice in and warm air out.

You can even use 1lb Pelican Ice packs to keep your drinks cold without worrying about melting ice making a mess.
Meanwhile, the lightly insulated upper compartment of this backpack cooler can be used to pack lunch and snacks. As a bonus, there is a dry storage pocket on the front of the backpack where you can keep items like your keys and cellphone safely secured.

Go in Confidence

Of course, there are other ways to safely secure your keys and cell phone while you’re on a hike.
The Pelican G40 Go Case* is a protective case designed specifically to protect these items. The case itself is waterproof, dustproof and crushproof. The G40* comes with a cell phone tray big enough for phones like the iPhone 11 Pro Max or the Samsung Note 10+.
The reverse side of the tray features pockets to hold credit cards and an elastic band to wrangle cords. You can even secure your Go Case* to the MOLLE-style loops on your Dayventure Backpack using its easy carry handle and a carabiner.

How to Stay Hydrated

Go Cases aren’t the only Pelican products that feature an easy carry handle. Pelican Bottles have a rubberized carry handle, which makes them a breeze to bring along on a hike. Their vacuum-sealed, double-walled construction gives them amazing insulating properties, which means your water stays icy cold for the entirety of the hike.

Of course, if you’re hiking on a chilly fall morning, your Pelican Bottle can keep your coffee hot for the whole hike too. And no matter what size Pelican Bottle you have, it will fit easily in the upper compartment of your Dayventure Backpack—even the 64oz bottle. Staying hydrated has never been so simple!


The change in season gives you the chance to see nature shift from the lush green of summer to the proliferation of red, orange, and yellow that marks the beauty of autumn. Pelican has all the gear you need to make a day hike fun and easy. So pack up lunch and grab some drinks. And let us know where you’ve been hiking by tagging us @PelicanCoolers in your pictures. We can’t wait to see them!
