I have too many fish to use breather bags, but they are definately the
best way to go in my mind if you have a few smaller fish without
significant spines. And the heavy duty polystyrene shipping boxes are
excellent too, again if you only have a few fish.

I am wondering if you could get large food grade plastic bags and put those
in a cooler. Loosely tie the top of the bag off around the air hose. Water
could slosh around in the bag and most would stay inside the cooler.

I've been given some styrofoam fish shipping boxes. They normally have
large clear plastic bags tied off surrounding the bags of fish.
