I have used it for several hikes and its never disappointing. Keeps food and drinks cool and fresh for hours even under scorching sun. Its my ultimate go to when I go out with friends and family for hikes/picnics etc.
Very good Ice Bag - Compact and keep fresh !!
We used our cooler bag to keep a fresh turkey cold while we stayed overnight for two days in a hotel near our daughter's home, because she didn't have room for it in her fridge. With it we also stored enough frozen packs of homemade stuffing and bread sauce for two days and a frozen pack of pigs in blankets, all with some freezer blocks to keep them cold. The freezer blocks were still frozen solid 48 hours later and the food kept beautifully in more or less the same condition in which we had first stored it, until we took it out to use or thaw. Most impressive!
Not yet put to use but it is so obviously a quality piece of kit. Inflates easily on it’s own and a couple of additional puffs make it firmer. It does fold away very easily as well. 26 litre capacity is more than ample and leaves room for ice blocks for our forthcoming long journey. Impressed.
Used in France and Italy this summer and performed brilliantly. We used frozen water bottles as a cold reservoir (with a tea-towel lining the bottom, in case of condensation) and enjoyed cold coke, wine, water, cheese, ham, butter, etc... on picnics in 40 degree heat. I added a little more air via lungpower and there was never any overt sign of condensation on the exterior. Not sure that the ability to flatten for transportation /storage is important - fill it with stuff whilst travelling - I'm certainly leaving the valves open between use, as I would a self-inflating sleeping mat.
better than an ordinary cool bag. We did use ice-packs because it was exceptionally hot. left in a hot tent and the milk was definitely cool still hours later- not freezing cold but better than it would have been.
Tricky to get bag in the elastic to store- keeps inflating but not really an issue - we keep it in the box
I've had two of these since the 26l was the only size available. They are so much more effective than the conventional solid cool boxes it's incredible.
I used these to store food when my friends and I go to music festival. I load them up with frozen bacon and sausages and a few ice packs, and the food is still frozen after three days. Cold drinks stay cold, fresh food stays fresh. Previously we were considering buying a gas powered fridge but with these amazing bags there's really no need.
Also, once you've used up the food they pack down really small so use take up less space on the way home. Fantastic!
Being first time campers with space issues, this was exactly what we were looking for Lightweight, flattens down for convenient travel, spacious and keeps things cool. Everything we hoped from a cool bag, no hesitation recommending this product.
Light, spacious, compact
We bought this to try because it seemed very different from your usual plastic cool boxes or slightly padded bags, which are always a disappointment.
This bag is incredible. We froze our bacon, sausages, and burgers, in addition to a big bottle of copella, milk, and water. Put in a few freezer blocks and then added some cider and beers from the fridge, and topped it off with some peppers and cheese. The water and juice is still frozen 36 hours later. The beers are colder than what they were when we put them in. We ate all of the meat though :( but I'm sure that would still be icy cold!
It is worth the extra investment, especially if you're not looking for an electric one which needs to stay plugged in.
I bought this cool bag a few weeks ago to take camping. We had our first trip over the spring bank holiday weekend, Friday to Monday. The stuff was kept cool until Monday evening. We had put two cartons of frozen juice in the bag to keep everything else cool and they were still icy on Sunday. Really good product.
Worked well, squashes down for storage.
Might be difficult to clean dirt from the seams.
