2014 Gear Of The Year: IcyBreeze Cooler
If there’s one thing that hasn’t been innovated in our camping products, it’s the typical cooler. Think about it. The most innovative thing on the modern cooler has generally been the cheap little strap that keeps the lid from falling backwards. Needless to say, it was time for a change. Like an add-an-air-conditioner-to-my-cooler kind of change.
IcyBreeze did just that with their IcyBreeze frost package air conditioner cooler. Yes, you heard that right: an air conditioner BUILT-IN to your cooler. How does this contraption work, you ask? Easy. Just like any other cooler, you fill it with your favorite beverages along with ice and some water, close the lid and point the breeze in the direction of your choosing.
When the temperatures reach scalding, you’ll be known as the one who saved the day at the company picnic, the little league baseball game, or the camping trip with your friends. They’ll say “hey! There’s Jane with her IcyBreeze air conditioning cooler. She’s rad!” Trust us, you want to be Jane in this situation. Heck, everybody wants to be Jane when she’s pointing her cooler AC unit at her face in the dead heat of summer.
You’re probably asking, “How could this cooler get any better?” Well, let us blow your mind one more time. This cooler holds 38 quarts of your favorite beverages with a wide drain opening and large wheels for all types of terrain. If you weren’t impressed with it having an air conditioner (which, please. Don’t kid yourself—you were impressed), then maybe having three different speeds will tickle your fancy.
