Found this cool insulated cover at Wal-Mart. Fits the standard plastic, round toy basket. 6 gallon Better Bottle fits perfectly along with a couple bottles of ice. Seems to work well as room temp is 75, temp inside dropped to 62. Top has a zippered hole so the neck of your carboy is sticking out for your blow-off tube or airlock. Best thing, it was on the clearance shelf for eight bucks. Can't wait to try it on my next brew.

Here is the packaging, I've had no luck finding it on Wal-Marts website or on Amazon. I found it in the clearance bin so maybe it's a discontinued item but don't know for sure.

There were about 4 or 5 left on the shelf at Wal-Mart. I may have to run back and pick up a couple more for spares.
