The Dolores Chiller Messenger 2014 is the latest of Timbuk2’s cooler bags. Each year the bag’s colors are inspired by a different beer; this year’s yellow, black, and silver scheme is inspired by Japan’s Sapporo beer. The bag has a TPU lining for “easy cleaning and keeping the elements out”. It has the standard Napoleon pocket that can be opened without opening the flap that all Timbuk2 messengers have. It also has a grab handle, a key-keeper trap inside, a removable cross strap for cross-body stabilization while riding, and even a bottle opener on the strap. The Dolores Chiller is fully insulated to keep cold stuff cold and hot stuff hot; it can hold up to 12 bottles of beer or soda. It’s $150 from Timbuk2.
