Great American Outdoor Show – Polaris Northstar Coolers

Granted, I don’t get out much, but I didn’t know that Polaris had a line of coolers until I saw them at this show.

Available in 30 and 60 quart sizes, these coolers are designed to fit in Polaris vehicles. Additionally, they are Certified Bear proof and incorporate rubber T-handle latches.

    If anyone else was as curious as I was about the testing protocol to be “bear resistant” was:

    Only Coleman and Igloo had lines of coolers, until Yeti made them a high-ticket item. At one time I was stunned to have to pay 50 beans for a cooler the size of a small coffin. OF course, it only kept ice, and freshly caught red drum, cool for maybe 45 minutes.

      Don’t forget Pelican. Mine has kept ice for a week. No rubber latches to dry rot.

        Yep. I needed a hurricane-just-knocked-the-electric-out-for-a-couple-of-weeks cooler, and did a side-by-side comparison thing between Yeti, Igloo’s Yukon, and Pelican’s Elite…

        Taking ergonomics, how smart is the design/construction, the ability to keep ice as ice, and ability/ease of repair: Igloo was the superior product, with Pelican a not-to-distant second. Once I factored in price ($/Qt. volume), Pelican was the clear winner. Went with their 65 Qt.

        A simple trick for keeping ice frozen is to sacrifice a bit of you space and throw in a block or two of dried ice, that will not only keep ice frozen but it will freeze anything too close to it too. Whenever my wife and I go camping we always pack our cooler, just an old Coleman, with dried ice at the bottom and regular ice on top and it keeps everything nice and cold over the course of a 3 – 4 day trip. The downside is that it takes up space in the cooler and if you don’t pack carefully/insulate things, you’re going to end up with frozen food in your cooler, in the past we’ve frozen juice, milk, and eggs; let me tell you, frozen eggs are a pain to cook and you’re limited to scrambling (with a bit of effort) or boiling them, no over easy when frozen.
