You can now buy Deliveroo rider bags to keep drinks chilled for picnics

Planning a picnic with your pals?

Unless you like drinking warm Prosecco, you’ll probably be needing a cooler bag to keep your drinks chilled.

But the chilling bags available right now aren’t the most fashion-forward. Enter the Deliveroo rider bag.

We’ve all seen the blue stuff strapped to the riders and now we can get our hands on our very own functional and stylish accessory.

Deliveroo is offering the chilled rider bag to anyone who wants it, for the sum of £10.

According to the food-delivery company, there has been a huge number of enquiries and tweets from customers asking where they can get their hands on a piece of the branded kit.

Looking to satisfy customer demand, Deliveroo has launched The Cool Bag Shop, where customers can purchase an official piece of branded rider kit from five locations including London (Battersea York Road, Crouch End, Swiss Cottage), Leeds and Nottingham.

Lined with heat-protective technology, the lightweight zip-up cool bag in the brand’s signature teal is said to keep food and drinks at the right temperature for up to two hours.

Each bag is insulated with a foam lining and a plastic inner fabric that can be wiped clean in case of spillage.

With festivals and the likes cancelled this summer, picnics in the park appears to be the next best thing for Brits across the UK looking to catch up with friends and soak up some rays.

According to Deliveroo, sales of summer staples have rocketed compared to this time last year – ice cubes are up by 170%, prosecco by 45%, and ice-cream by 412%. 

Natasha Graydon from Deliveroo said: ‘We’ve all been victim to warm beers, melted ice, and soggy sandwiches at some point over the past couple of months.

‘Head on over to The Cool Bag Shop on the Deliveroo app this weekend. Just remember, don’t be a tosser and Roocycle any rubbish.’

If you’re a really big Deliveroo stan, then don’t forget you can also buy a matcing jacket to complete the look.

The Cool Bag Shop goes live on Friday 31 July, and will remain open while stocks last.
