Default IPad/cooler bag

I've been searching and can't decide what to get. What do you all use? I don't want to spend over $100 like some are priced.

Why not? If you find something that is nice, fits your purpose and will hold up over time - the small investment will pay for itself in savings on eating out within the first month.

I used to use an eBags cooler bag which is quite good but small. The next bag I tried was this one:

Aerocoast PRO EFB & Cooler II - Marv Golden Pilot Supplies

It was an OK bag but was lacking for organization and I found everything was stuffed in. I then took a chance on this one:

Technically it's not listed as a cooler bag. However the back unzips and has a huge area for stuff and is padded nicely. What I do is now have two FA collection plastic bags (won't leak) in there for a 'double liner' and put the cold food in the center one and dry food in the outer bag. This keeps the inside of the crew bag fairly clean unlike the cooler which got pretty nasty over time. I just replace the bags when they get old after a few trips. Super easy. Freeze your food and/or get dry ice from the catering or a small bag of ice in one of those water things to keep stuff cold.

The rest of the bag is fairly large with a lot of room for organization. I like how nothing is 'stuffed' inside anymore.

That is a great way of looking at it.

Awesome, thanks! It looks like a wise investment, as the earlier poster suggested.
