If you’re going to enjoy your time sitting around the campfire, you might as well be comfortable

No longer must you choose between grabbing a drink from the cooler or planting our backside on it. That's right, when the bunkhouse fridge is just too far away, you can provision yourself (and others) for the long haul by squirreling away frosty beverages in your chair's built-in cooler.
