Flip-Box Premium Iceless Cooler
Excellent! Back for another!
I purchased this to replace a small cooler that I keep in my vehicle to keep bottled water cold, for last minute grocery stops and road trips. I was surprised to find that it appears to keep food cold/frozen better than the traditional cooler. I recently drove from Fla to NC and at the end of the trip some frozen bottles of water in the flip-box were still frozen but bottles that were stored in the the traditional cooler had fully thawed. They were cold, but thawed. I did have a few large ice packs in the flip box so obviously that helped but I also had ice packs AND ice cubes in the I've also used it to keep "to go" meals warm and it works well for that too! The only downside I've found is that is it can be damaged fairly easily. (Hence 4 stars instead of 5) In shifting things around the back of the vehicle, the lid got caught on something and the part where the lid connects to the box tore off. It still closes properly and stays attached but doesn't snap in place anymore but still works and I've been using it for over a year as it is. The only other thing to be aware of is that it is not a water tight cooler (should be obvious as it snaps together) so you can't just dump a bag of ice in it and expect it not to leak. Just use icepacks and you're good! Definitely worth the $30!

Love this! Very convenient to use when grocery shopping on a hot day. You can get ice cream and milk and keep them cold until you get home.

So Happy to Just Stumble Upon This in the Store!
What a super cool product! It collapses flat, or folds into a container that will keep things cold! How many times have I needed to make a quick stop on the way home from the grocery store, worried about the frozen and refrigerated items (especially in this TX heat!)? This is an easy to tote item that lies flat in the trunk and can be removed for quick storage of anything.
I have also used it for toting take out food that could lose heat on the way home. Although the product is not advertised for that, it still provides a reduction in air circulation around the warm food.

Nice design, poor execution
This cooler was a lot roomier than expected once set up. Unfortunately, that room was mostly horizontal square space, making it an awkward fit for most cars. With short styrofoam handles on both sides, it would have been a nuisance to carry.
The fold up design was very clever, and it just might not leak, but only because the screechy styrofoam panels fit together so "nicely."
