Dry Ice Coolers FAQ's

HOW MUCH ICE DO I NEED INSIDE MY DRY ICE™ COOLER?

We recommend 1/3 of the cooler bags or backpacks are filled with ice on top of the drinks to ensure the contents stay cold for up to 24 hours.


Ice On Top

How long will a Dry Ice™ Cooler retain ice for?

Thanks to an innovative dual layer foam core, the Dry Ice coolers are able to insulate the contents of your bag for up to 24 hours. The air valve also enhances the insulation capabilities and can easily add extra air once filled up with drinks, food and ice.


Find below some hints and tips to help you get the best out of your Dry Ice™ cooler bag or backpack.


  • Store your cooler in the shade or a cool place when possible.
  • Chilling or even freezing your drinks before loading into your cooler.
  • For best results, we recommend using at least 1/3 Ice to 2/3 drinks. However, the more ice the better, and should try and fill any air space with ice if weight is not an issue.
  • Do not empty the melted cold water as this will be a very similar temperature to the ice, and therefore will assist with keeping the contents cold.
  • Pack the ice last into your cooler. Cold air will travel downwards, so load your drinks first and then pack the ice on top.
  • Ensure your cooler is sealed properly when not in use.
  • Try and open and close the cooler as quickly as possible, as the more it is open the more warm air will be able to penetrate the contents.


How do you seal the Dry Ice™ Cooler Bags and Backpacks?

All our soft cooler bags and backpacks use a simple roll-top sealing system making them 100% watertight. This also means there are no zips to jam or break, and allows easy access to the contents.

What is the air valve used for?

The Air Valve allows you to purge any excess air stored between the 2 insulating layers making it much easier to pack away after use. It also enhances the insulation capabilities of the soft coolers as can easily add extra air once filled up with drinks, food and ice.


Notes:


  • Please be careful not to over fill your cooler with air as this will affect insulation as well as eat into the final capacity and how much you will be able to store inside your cooler bag or backpack.
