The Tahoe Backpack and Cooler - Granite Rocx LLC

Post by Mark Bilbrey on October 18, 2014 MSRP: $65

The Tahoe Backpack is a totally unique backpack and cooler system designed to carry any type/size folding chair, multiple chairs at once or other pieces of equipment, however the design is proving valuable to anglers who want to get off the trail and hike to new waters giving them the ability to store their gear keeping hands free while they hike to a new fishing hole. The cooler system is a 12 can insulated detachable pack that can be used by itself if desired. A stylish and comfortable backpack with the back chair/gear compartment.

Granite Rocx LLC was founded in February of 2013 by Stephen Berei and Sophia Berman. They were determined to provide exceptional backpack and cooler products with a unique design. The idea of the Granite Rocx Backpack Cooler was to kill two birds with one stone, and that's exactly what they have done. The Tahoe backpack is designed to carry your items, any type of folding chair, multiple chairs or your fishing gear. What makes this Backpack so unique is the detachable cooler that can hold enough food and drinks for a weekend and is insulated adequately enough to keep items cool or hot for a long time.

A good product all around, the Tahoe Backpack with a detachable cooler brings innovation to outdoor enthusiasts who are needing to bring necessities along for the day. The Tahoe emerged from a need Steve Berei had for a functional backpack that could carry his folding chair along with a cooler. He was biking to the beach one day and realized a design that could fulfill his needs while still being able to use the backpack and cooler as separate pieces.

“We hope to encourage those who enjoy the outdoors as much as we do to purchase one of our packs and follow our company.” Said Steve Berei who grew up skiing, camping, fishing and anything outdoors on the East Coast with his family.
