The cooler was more than I expected. Took it on its first holiday and could not believe how cold everything stayed. We actually on day 3 still had frost in our chicken. Unbelievable, the first morning I had milk in my cereal and it was ice cold not luke warm, felt like I was at home and just took it out of the fridge. The staff I dealt with on ordering were super friendly and helpful. I will be telling all my friends and family about these awesome coolers. Thank you
NTPC Customized - 100 Quart Ark Series Cooler from Blue Coolers
We were in Colorado for 18 days and added 20 pounds of ice to it in that time.
It was in full sun half the day. (WOW)
The yeti stayed home now.
My 14-year old refrigerator starting giving me hints that it was tired, so for Christmas last year, I asked my kids for the 100 lb Blue Cooler. My kids thought I was crazy, but they indulged me and bought me the cooler (as a joint present from them). It took a while for my refrigerator to die, but it finally did, ironically when I had both my kids (and spouse) here for a visit. The boys went out and bought ONE bag of grocery store ice. We already had several travel-size ice packs which were frozen. So we took all the food from the freezer (huge amount) and completely filled the BC-100 to the brim. We ate out of that for five days while we awaited delivery of the new refrigerator (of course over a holiday weekend), opening the cooler sparingly. Today, the new refrigerator was delivered. I was shocked at the limited loss of food in the cooler. Mostly, I had to throw things out because it had thawed, my company had gone home, and it was more than I could eat in a short time frame. The bag of ice we purchased BARELY EVEN MELTED, but the biggest culprit was the water from the ice that DID melt - it soaked through the cardboard on many of the food boxes. STILL, we could have lasted another couple of days on the food that was still good. I LOVE THIS COOLER. It's heavy, though. I didn't buy the one with wheels - probably should have. But I don't regret it a bit. I was MOTIVATED to chime in on the virtues of this product. It is absolutely AWESOME.
I have owned several coolers in the last few years. Many of them high end brands. I recently purchased the 30 quart white cooler and the soft sided cooler. Both are fantastic! The 30 qt has kept my food cold for days! I also followed their instructions on their web site including using ice to prep the cooler and leaving some water in as well. My food kept for the entire week trip. I then used both coolers for picnics, lunches, and major traveling. The zipper on the soft sided cooler is easier to manage than both of the comparable high end, and much more expensive, brands. And it is beautifully made. I love the width and height as well as the convenience the soft sided cooler lends me for lunch on the go. The 30 quart is perfect for everything else. With the cutting board and the basket it is the best cooler I have owned. I also love the lockable lid. As a person on the go, I am happiest when my gear is locked and protected.
