Soggy sandwiches are the best way to ruin a summer day at the beach, campsite, or on the boat. Wire cooler baskets work great for dry storage, but they're not available for many brands and sizes of coolers.
The Lifetime brand, for instance, makes some of the best, burliest coolers out there -- but they don't make any compatible baskets or other cooler accessories. Yes, they are well insulated, but you want your bacon and eggs to stay cold and dry, and it doesn't take much to have some slightly melted ice soak your food to the core. Coleman is another brand that is synonymous with the outdoors, but hardly any of their coolers have a compatible cooler basket.
