Leather Clad Cooler Turns Tailgate Parties Into Picnics At Downton Abbey

Classy? Tacky? There are plenty of ways to describe this leather clad cooler that Orvis is selling, but affordable isn't one of them. With a $US1000 price tag it had better guarantee to raise your social status a few notches.

One thing's for certain, it'll blend in perfectly with Apple's "Wild Wild West" iOS 5 theme.

With 46,000 cubic centimetres of capacity it's similar to the Coleman you've been hauling to the lake for years now. Except that it's covered in fitted hand-sewn leather, complete with matching leather-covered handles and a leather strap secured with a brass buckle.

It's swanky, I'll give it that. And when strapped to the back of your open-topped classic touring car it will make the neighbours think you're off to a weekend at your country estate. Instead of heading to a parking lot outside your local stadium to drink the afternoon away in a lawn chair. [Orvis via Gear Culture]
