As we are all too aware, sudden doom could happen just like that. One minute, everything is hunky dory, next thing ya know, asteroids, social upheaval, global thermonuclear war or worse.

The question that immediately springs to mind under such chaos is: "Will my beer stay cold?"

Now it can.

As society falls into abject anarchy, you can rely on 7 days worth of frosty refreshment to watch the whole shebang.

Check it out:

Anyone compared these yet to Engel or Yeti?

That's actually pretty cool.  

And works great for body parts!

There was a cooler shoot out done a couple years ago, and the Engel beat the Yeti.

Will be interesting to see how these stack up.

Always hated how Pelican doesn't list prices...

They have them on Amazon, or did at least. These have been out a while.

Not impressed with their latch system. Secured with some small looking screws.....Seems like a "me too" of an Engel, Yeti or Icey Tek. Time will tell if they are as durable....

A Frigid Rigid is better at ice retention than any of the "plastic" coolers. I own several Yetis, had an Engel, and borrowed my buddies Frigid Rigid to bring some fish back from Alaska last summer. All fish came out of the same freezer and were placed into various coolers. Four days later when I got home, The fish in the Frigid Rigid were hard as a rock. The fish in the Yeti's did really well but some of the fish on the outside wall of the cooler had started to go soft. All coolers were packed 7/8's full, had a piece of cardboard placed over the frozen fish, and all had 10lbs of  dry ice placed on top of the cardboard. I did not open the coolers until I got home. On the other hand, Yeti's are really tough and the Frigid RIgid's are gelocated on the exterior so they are prone to chipping from hard use. My Engel was pretty good but the latches suck. Either way any of the newer cooler will smoke a Coleman or any of the other disposable crap you buy at K mart.
