An MP3 cooler with a sense of style

It's all decked out and ready for summer.

Summer is just around the corner, so it's time to start thinking of barbecues and picnics (translation: beer). And as luck would have it, there are all manner of multi-tasking coolers now on the market that can facilitate outdoor entertainment with built-in speakers and iPod connections .

To date, however, most the MP3 coolers we've seen are exceedingly boring to look at--hardly appropriate to celebrate the solar rites. Thankfully we came across the "Chill Out Stereo Cooler Bag" on Chip Chick, sporting a design that seems to fit a psychedelic '60s trend we've been noticing lately. And any product with a "James Dean" model is worth at least a second look.

If the battery-powered cooler runs out of juice, never fear. There's always the MP3 barbecue , the MP3 mini-fridge , or, for the most serious revelry, the " Tailgating Trailer ."
