Let’s call Jerry Seinfeld's carry-all what it was: a purse. A man-purse sure, but a purse nonetheless.
As a purse, it actually had a lot going for it. Sleek. Black. Remarked upon by attractive women.
But, unable to carry 36 beers, like this one: Yeti’s Hopper Two 40, a six-pound monster of a murse that puts Jerry’s to shame.
Yes, we're calling it a murse. Technically, it's a 100% leakproof portable cooler with soft sides and a tapered body. But the $400 Hopper Two 40 — which is also available in 20 ($300, holds 18 beers) and 30 ($350, holds 24 beers) sizes — is made from high density fabric that’s resistant to punctures and mildew as well as insulated with closed-cell rubber foam that can prevent ice from melting for days on end.

An improved version of Yeti’s original Hopper, the Hopper Two features design changes that have “increased cold-holding power, made loading (and unloading) much easier, made hauling more comfortable, and improved visibility.”
Wear it on your shoulder with pride, man.
