The patented Self-Inflatable Air Cooler is like no other cooler.
Just open and turn the air valve located on its side.* Ultra high performance air and foam insulation ensure that there is still ice after 2.5 days!
The interior features a removable, leak proof liner with Microban to protect against bacterial odors and stains. The exterior is water resistant and has a zippered front pocket and an adjustable shoulder strap.
When inflated, the cooler can be used in either a tote or box shape and will float if accidentally immersed in water. After use, simply deflate and store rolled or flat. Great for camping, fishing, boating.
How to Use
The Self-Inflating Cooler is easy to use.
1. In its flat form, turn the air valve that is found on the right side of the cooler to self-inflate the cooler (A).
2. If you want to inflate the cooler even more, you can blow into the valve. (B).
3. Once the cooler has been fully inflated, turn the air valve to close it.
4. Your cooler is now ready to use. The Self-inflating Cooler can be used in tote or box shape: i) To use as a tote, after inflating, clip the bottom corner buckles to the side buckles (C). or ii) To use in the box shape, after inflating, clip the top buckles to the bottom buckles (D).
5. To deflate the cooler for travel, unbuckle all of the buckles to create the flat form (E). Open the air valve to release the air. Roll the cooler to deflate and close the valve to keep the air out. Buckle using the strap to transport in rolled shape (F) or unroll to transport flat (E).
6. For best long-term foam loft, store the cooler flat or in its built shape with the valve open (F).
Getting the most from your cooler
There are many variables that can affect the length of time that food or beverages will retain their initial packing temperature. These include the ambient air temperature, the temperature of the contents at the time of packing, the volume of contents packed, and the amount and/or type of ice or ice substitutes used.
If the precise temperature of the contents is critical, use a thermometer to measure temperatures close to the items. Our coolers may be used with or without ice, however, ice, an ice pack or ice substitute will extend the amount of time that food stays cold.
Ice packs or ice substitutes with a lower freezing point are preferable because they stay colder longer than ice cubes, focus the cold better and don’t make your food wet. Block ice, available in larger sizes than most reusable ice packs will stay cold for a very long time. D.I.Y. block ice, easily made by freezing water in bottles, is long lasting, will not soak your food and provides clean drinking water when it melts. If you need to chill drinks quickly, ice cubes are the way to go.
The fuller your cooler is with food, the longer the contents will retain their temperature. In performance tests, coolers that were fully packed produced optimal results.
The colder the contents are at the time of packing, the longer they will keep their temperature. For example, dense frozen foods stay cold or frozen longer.
As warm air rises and cool air falls, place ice, ice packs or ice substitutes on top of the cooler contents for best cooling results. When traveling, you may substitute ice cubes in resealable plastic bags for ice packs/ice substitutes.
*Performance Testing & Still Ice Claims
The product was 100% filled with ice and the ambient temperatures were alternated between approximately 90ºF/32ºC and 67ºF/19ºC every 12 hours to simulate day/night temperatures during the summer. At the 60 hour mark, ice was still present. Note: Results will vary according to the ambient temperature, the volume and the starting temperature of the contents.
