Porsche Chronograph I 50th Anniversary
Porsche is celebrating its 50th anniversary of the Chronograph 1 by releasing two new watch models. Before the Chronograph I’s release in 1972, few makers had even attempted, yet successfully designed, a driving watch that took on the specific aesthetics of a sports car. Chronograph I was also the world’s first completely black watch.
The two new versions of the iconic timepiece include the Chronograph 1 – 1972 Limited Edition, and the Chronograph 1 – 911 Edition 50Y Porsche Design. Both are developed and manufactured at Porsche Design’s watchmaking workshop in Solothurn, Switzerland.
The 1972 Limited Edition will have 500 models available for purchase and the 911 Edition 50Y will have 750 models. What’s distinct about the latter release is the 911 Edition 50Y will be available exclusively to buyers of the 750 Porsche 911 TargaGTS Porsche Design 50th Anniversary Edition sports cars.
Cascade Moon 13 Year Old Rye
From George Dickel’s experimental distillery, Cascade Moon 13 Year Old Rye was selected by the Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. General Manager Distiller Nicole Austin. The barrels of the whiskey contain aging rye that first arrived at Cascade Hollow in 2012 and was stored in the distiller’s rickhouses.
The mature rye comes in at 100 proof (50% ABV) and includes mature, sweet notes of vanilla, toffee, leather, and nutmeg. The spirit has a smooth, oaky finish that’s best enjoyed neat.
Cascade Moon 13 Year Old Rye is available for a limited time at a suggested price of $299. It can be found at retailers in the states of Tennessee, Texas, and California.
The 7 Best Soft Coolers On The Market, Ranked And Reviewed
We reviewed the 7 best soft coolers on the market to determine what each one does best. We’ve designated each soft cooler with a respective “Best for” title so those who are looking for a specific type of soft cooler can find the ideal product.
We’ve highlighted four of the best soft coolers below. To read the entire guide, go here.
Best Overall: YETI Hopper M30 Soft Cooler
Behold the YETI Hopper M30. From camping tote bag to picnic basket, to tailgate MVP, we like Hopper M30 as the Best Overall because of its versatility and durability. The Hopper is constructed like a messenger bag, so you can wear it over the shoulder or carry it with the handles. It’s deceptive in the way it can hold cargo, as its slim silhouette holds up to 30L (approx. 50 cans of beer) and weighs 6.8 lbs.
The tech on the Hopper also guarantees a long lifespan. A HydroLok Zipper promises waterproof resistance and a unique high-density DRYHIDE™ SHELL withstands tears and UV rays. Both the interior and exterior of the Hopper are treated to be mildew resistant.
Best for Travel: RTIC Soft Cooler Insulated Bag
RTIC is another premium brand in the cooler game. Soft Cooler Insulated Bag is a great pick for traveling. From cross-country road trips to single-day beach trips, this compact cooler will keep beverages ice-cold while offering ease in carrying while on the go.
The cooler features 2-inches of closed-cell foam and a tear-resistant liner. A durable waterproof tape seam zipper is outfitted to seal off potential leaks or spills—and to block out dirt or sand.
Best for Everyday Use: YETI Hopper Flip 12 Soft Cooler
There’s nothing like a YETI when you want your food or drink to stay cold all day. Yeti’s Flip Hopper soft coolers are easily the best soft coolers out there thanks to ColdCell Insulation, which is a type of closed-cell foam that offers superior cold-holding to soft coolers.
The YETI Hopper Flip soft coolers range in capacity, from 8 cans plus ice to 18 cans plus ice. They also feature a 100% leakproof HydroLok Zipper and the wide-mouth opening for easy-lookin’ into what you have inside. We like the 12 can size for everyday use—from packing your work lunch to bringing over brews when watching sports with the guys.
Best Sling Cooler: Pelican Cooler Sling
Sling coolers are a popular option for those who aren’t planning on carrying a ton of goods. They’re extremely portable, especially when hiking or attending a sporting event. There are a bunch of different types of sling coolers, but you won’t find one as durable and advanced as the Pelican Cooler Sling.
It’s made with 840D double coasted TPU nylon that’s waterproof and tear-resistant. It weighs a lofty 2 lbs while offering the ability to store up to 8 liters of cargo. Other features include a leak-resistant zipper, insulated inner walls, and a compression-molded base for added durability. Perhaps the best design note overall is the supremely cushioned shoulder strap—it’s all about effortless carrying with sling coolers!

The tumblers are magnetized to the flask, so you don’t have to worry about them falling off or tediously screwing and unscrewing each cup.
The streamlined flask holds an impressive 750ml, which equates to about a fifth of liquor or a full bottle of wine. Firelight is made of 18/8 stainless steel and features a leak proof plug cap with a silicone ring. Take this bad boy hiking or even kayaking.
