How about just glue you cover to the cooler. Best of both worlds right?

What I was looking forward to them! Still trying to get my head around the tube diameter discussion gets really hard to figure.

I been glueing the cheap old blue foam pads to rafting stuff for many years using some 3M Spray adhesive. Currently been on my yeti and dry box for almost a decade (same pad) and still in good shape. Cost about $7

I have the pad on the cooler for non-slip rather than insulation per say, for the dogs.

What's wrong with using a traditional Paco Pad?

Nothing wrong with them. We've used Paco pads for years, but they are a pain. Maybe not so much on a GC trip, but for shorter trip where you might need to get into the cooler for a beverage a cooler cover or foam is the way to go.

I use a 3/8 inch foam bed roll ($12) as the top layer inside the cooler. It sits below the cooler lid to prevent leaks around the seam. Then a wet blanket over the cooler. It works great.
Also I pack each meal in its own "bring your own grocery bag" so there is no searching for products, just grab the bag. Also a bag full of lunch and snacks. This minimizes how long the cooler is open.
Of course there is a soft sided beer cooler that gets loaded every morning.
