It’s cookout season, when each week brings new opportunities to bike yourself and a six-pack to a potluck grilling party. The good folks at Breckenridge Brewery  have invented a way to ease that commute.
The new Topo Urban Outdoor Pack  ($140) features a built-in insulated cooler designed for a six-pack’s precise specifications. Not only does it keep your brews cold on a hot summer afternoon, but it’s also detachable and collapsible, so it can double as a lunch tote. And, of course, the pack comes with a bottle-opener—but not just any bottle-opener. This one’s a bar of cold, hard steel that’s custom-made by Machine Era Co .
The pack itself also looks cool, thanks to Topo Designs ’ slick styling. Topo makes totes that combine retro outdoor aesthetics with urban function—and the bags are made right here in Denver, in a LEED-certified building. They’ve even figured out how to make a non-dorky fanny pack (which should earn Topo a Nobel Prize, I say). Behold the Mini Hip Pack  ($69), which solves the problem of overflowing pockets—but doesn’t accommodate adult beverages (unless you’re packing minis). For grownup-sized bottles, there’s the Urban Outdoor Pack, because full-sized coolers belong with the suburban crowd.
