I've had mine for several years now and am totally sold on them. I bought two different sizes and one fits perfectly in my Jesse, the other can strap on top for longer trips. They keep things cold better than any other product. After several years of use I'm starting to worry about the zippers. That's my only criticism, but if they blow out I'll gladly order a new one!

They really do make a nice cooler.

Is that the 12-pack or 24-pack?

Geoff has a 2 for 1 sale a couple of times a year. Those are a great time to pick up a cooler or an extra one.

If you buy two of the same size, one is free; if you buy two different sizes, the lower priced one is free.

Believe me, the cooler is a bargain at full price--it is a GREAT deal at half price.

Strud Nash, the owner of Polar Bear Coolers is THE FUCKING MAN.

Couple years back I bought 3 or 4 of the 12 packs and 24 packs, mostly as gifts and because when I let someone borrow one I usually don't get it back!

Then I see on ADV that hey, the silver ones have these cool D rings so you can strap em down to the bike and still access the top. Well, I want some D rings too, so I call em up and order a pair in silver.

Turns out the new silver ones did not have D rings so they sent me some mossy oak ones that did. Well, I do not want mossy oak so I call em up and ask if there will be any new ones coming in, they were unsure but checked the entire warehouse for any older ones for me.

So I wait patiently with the box with the mossy oak coolers in the closet for nearly a year until I start cleaning the place out again and realize I still had em.

I shoot Strud a message and ask again about the silver ones with D rings, and also offer a suggestion to make the new ones roll top IE like a dry bag. He says that's a great idea and he's back to the drawing board for a new series. Can't wait

Well now I am about to take off to the middle of the desert, so I ask if I can exchange my new, sealed and still in the package mossy oak 24 packs for a single 48 pack.

Sure, no problem.

Today in the mail I end up getting two 12 packs instead of the single 48.

Someone screwed up in the shipping department, no worries, people make mistakes.

Because of the first mistake Strud even threw in a bunch of ice packs, AWESOME!

But I need to be on the road in a few days, so I shoot Strud an e-mail and ask if there is a place in the NYC area where I can go and buy another 48 pack cooler or if there is a place along I-80 between NYC and Nevada I can stop in to purchase one.

2 minutes later I get a reply from the owner, on a Saturday afternoon no less, with an employee CC'd to the email which stated.

Hey, get Eddie what he needs and make sure it gets to him by Wednesday.

So, Strud, YOU FUCKING ROCK!!!!!!

And to prove he is truly ADV, check this out.

I also talked a few guys who are coming to the desert with me into picking up a few for themselves. They think they are truly awesome too.

Did I mention Strud rocks?

Great to hear. Quality product, great customer service, as it should be, yet so rare. Hope they make $$$$$. Love mine, using the hell out of it, outstanding, will buy more and recommend them all the time.

Thanks, Phil

In December there is a 50% off sale every year, they call it a buy one get one free, but the code just takes 50% off your total (for coolers, not for ice packs). The code is 2112, it will be active after Thanksgiving through the new year.

Spoke to Strud the other day, he said all the coolers now have D rings.

Now, where to get 1.5" velcro strappage locally.....hmm

Sweet. Thanks for the code. Just placed my Black Friday order & saved over fifty bones.
My choices are backordered until late Jan, so won't make it under the tree. Not a deal-killer, though; no camping planned between now & then anyway.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone's raving about! And FWIW, were it not for this forum, I would not have even known about these dynamite coolers....let alone the seasonal deal on them. Thanks fellas!
