KEEP ICE FOR EVEN LONGER

Impressive thermal properties make WILD Cooler boxes the alpha in the pack, industry-wise, with its 50mm thick walls and a 75mm thick lid, freezer-quality sealing properties and one-piece construction. Still, there are a few things you can do to stretch the lifespan of your ice even further.

No air in there

Air is the enemy, when it comes to ice retention. Always try and have your cooler box as full of supplies and ice as you can, then pack and fill in any empty space left with towels or similar.

Cool your cooler

Preload your WILD Cooler box, a few hours before packing it for your trip, with a bag of ice just to chill it. This will mean your ice for the trip will start off in a cold cooler box and stay cooler for longer.

The colder the better

The colder your ice is to start with, the longer it will last. Super-cold ice, ice below zero degrees, is quite dry. Don’t pack your cooler box with ice that is wet or dripping already.

Block and cube

The best mix of ice to pack into your cooler box is a 50/50 mix of large block ice, which melts slowly, and a bunch of smaller ice cubes, which will chill your box’s contents the fastest (and fill gaps between the big blocks).

Don’t lose the water

Don’t drain out water once the ice begins to melt – the ice water will be almost as cold as the remaining ice and will slow its melting. Do, however, make sure any food items in the box are sealed against water ingress.

Throw some shade

Keep your WILD Cooler in the shade when possible to help keep the outside temperature as low as possible.
