When you live in a tiny home, you appreciate things that are compact, sturdy, and exceptionally well made like the Arctic Zone Coolers.
Here's our big cooler that gets heavy use. They call it an Ultra High Performance 50 Can Cooler that Folds Flat by Arctic Zone. We've never filled it with cans to check but we do use it for tasks where large capacity is important and great insulation is critical.
This cooler lives folded compactly, out of the way, on a hook high on our entry closet wall. It has VELCRO® straps that keep it from popping open.
We unfold it and leave it for our Boston Organics deliveries. Because there's no space to store their totes between deliveries, we take advantage of their willingness to transfer our order into this handy folding cooler.
Its super insulation is important when we travel. We pack frozen containers of our Westie Poppy's homemade raw diet with containers of ice in this cooler. And, it has never failed to arrive at our destination in rock solid frozen condition even after hours in a car.
Naturally, we use this when we rent a Zipcar to do a major shopping trip to Market Basket or Costco.
We just added this Arctic Zone Expandable Lunch Pack to our farmers market shopping kit. Now that we have so many fish, meat, and dairy options at the markets, we want to have a small cooler with us on every market trip so we don't have to rush home with our purchases. We find that we're also using it to bring snacks to our roof deck and for a quick lunch picnic.
We've been using this company's products for many years and should our current editions of their products begin to show some wear in a few more years, we would absolutely buy the newest versions.
