Thumb The Best Cooler Made For Motorcycling

I came across Polar Bear Coolers in my business one day and decided to try one. After putting 60 K Miles on mine while riding my GS, I have decided to become a dealer for Polar Bear Coolers. They come in various sizes, but for ADV Touring the 6, 12, or 24 Pack work the best. The 6 Pack will fit inside of most Tank Panniers and the 12 and 24 Pack will fit on most Rear Panniers or on the rear seat. I have stopped using a Camel Back and I now just put the water bladder in my Polar Bear Cooler. Then I drink ice cold water all day, with plenty of room for “Other Refreshments “. I am offering a 10% discount off of the price of the Cooler and will donate 10% to Baldy for letting us hang out at ADV when we are not out Riding, or you can wave your 10% and I will donate the entire 20% to Baldy. NOTE: Discount applies to price of the Cooler only, not to shipping or embroidery fees and you must order thru me to get your discount.
Here are the 6, 12, & 24 Pack

The 12 Pack on the rack of a 1200GS



A 6 Pack next to Tour Tech Tank Panniers. They also fit very well in Mt Sun Touring Tank Panniers

The 24 Pack on a 1200 GS


They come in Black, Red, Green, Navy, Camo, and reflective Silver(AKA Solar).
Demisions and Prices. ( Prices do not iclude S & H or ADV discount. ) Monogramming is avilable for $5 extra ( please allow 3 extra days for Monograming ), up to 3 lines, and shipping CONUS is $8.
6 Pack Dimensions 10X7X7 Price $29.95
12 Pack 14X12X7 $39.95
24 Pack 18"W x 12"H x 10" $49.95
PRICING NOTE: The Silver and Camo colors are $5 more sorry and are only avilable in 12 & 24 Pack size.

Email me at stonewall@schat.net (please put Coolers in the subject for my spam filter), Pm me, snail mail listed below, or call me at Mark’s Beverage 760-920-8803 (I’m the Mark in Mark’s Beverage). Payment by Pay Pal stonewall@schat.net , checks, or money orders for payment I will ship to you when I get your Pay Pal confirmation or you let me know that payment is in the mail.

Great Stuff

I have one (24 pk). I find I use it on the boat and other places. It takes up less room than a hard side cooler. It folds flat on the bike, when empty, and hold ice longer than I have ever needed. I haven't even been able to punch a hole in it....yet. Great item. I will be getting the 12 pk for sure.

OK, I'm going to give this cooler a try. I've been through 4 or more small coolers, foldable ones, ones with plastic inserts, etc. Stonewall, If your getting 40K miles and a few years use out of this cooler, it must be pretty good. Order Sent!!!

It's Warming Up

Bump

It's getting to be riding time and you may need a cooler.

Glad to see they've done well and even better, we can get them from a fellow ADVer!

Got 2 on order

Traded email with Stonewall last Friday and then put in the order. Got the email with the tracking number Monday morning... UPS says I'll have them on Friday.

Looking forward to using them!

Arrived right on time - they look great!

Amusing side note. The instructions say that they've been squashed to make shipping easy, and that you should fill with hot water to allow the bag to 'relax' back to original shape. Ok, cool, I get to play with my new toys, I'm happy. (Damn amazing how much water you can put into one of those 24's! ) Hmmm. Ok, so now I have however many gallons of water in a bag, in the sink. Hmmm. (pondering the mess I'm going to make pouring the water out of a fexible bag that's already the size of the sink.)

The water isn't going away on it's own - they are wonderfully water tight. I know! I'll just zip it up and carry it out side. (zip) Interesting! While the bag is water tight, the top zipper isn't at all! (water seaping out the closed zipper that had compressed the bag, flowing down the side of the bag, on to the counter where the bag was against the edge of the sink.) Ok, so much for not making a mess.

[Note to self, don't pack bag upside down. Try not to dump bike if bag is strapped on and full of ice melt.]

The good news was that once carried outside (and set aside), the hot water was still nice and hot when I remembered to dump it out a few hours later.

Now the more important test... fill with chilled refreshments and enjoy!

Thanks for the great service!

Carried the 24 with me the last 3 weeks traveling thru AZ and down into Mexico and back... 100, 105, 112... starting off in the morning with bottles of frozen water, cold water, cold snacks. Strapped to the back of the bike, baking in the sun. End of the day, the frozen water was still half frozen...

(And did a really nice job packed with Pacifico and ice where we were staying. )

I've probably had it for 4 at this point. Works great. No leaks, no wear to speak of. It's been all around the U.S. on a 4 corners tour and been to Cabo twice, bunch of other places as well.

Buy one already!

Don't know a thing about these coolers but I do know Stonewall gets his orders out FAST!

Emailed Sunday, tracking number Monday morning.

Looking forward to trying mine out later this month. Thanx, Stonewall!
