The Best Koozies to Help You Keep Your Cool All Year Long
Whether it's during the heat of the summer or those delightfully warm days that surprise us in the spring and fall, koozies are an outdoor drinking staple no serious beer, cider, or seltzer lover should be without. Even if you have the best cooler packed with ice, drinks will start to sweat as soon as you grab a fresh one. Koozies keep things ice-cold for even longer, saving you from dreaded warm beers and acting as sweat-proof drink holders all the while.
From packable neoprene sleeves to double-walled vacuum insulated styles, a high-quality koozie makes an excellent investment. Nowadays there are countless types, but we've done the work and rounded up the best for all warm-weather drinking needs.

Factors to Consider
Your Drink of Choice
When deciding which koozie to invest in, think about what you normally drink. Is it mostly glass bottles, or slim hard seltzer cans? Pretty much every can and bottle size has a koozie option these days, including wine bottles and iced coffee cups. Identify which styles you drink most frequently and zero in on can coolers to fit one or two sizes. You can also find more versatile options that cover almost all the bases.
Do you need light, packable koozies for the park or beach? Or a sturdy style that will keep things chilled for hours even in blazing hot temperatures? You might need a koozie that will fit in a cup holder or one that can survive drops in wild conditions. How hot it gets where you are or where you intend to travel will be important for which style of koozie you need. Double-walled insulation is key for the highest temperatures, and durable can cooler coatings are important for trips to the beach (for both sand and UV-Rays). Campers will want something light that works for both hot and cold beverages. Whatever the situation, there's likely a koozie that works best listed here.
