This Genius Cooler Will Keep Your Ice Frozen for 14 Days
And it will keep your food safe from bears, too.
You may know Otterbox as the brand that’s saved your smartphone from countless drops and spills. But on Tuesday, the company unveiled its next lifesaving wave of products beyond phone cases: ultra-durable coolers.
Made for both fans of the great outdoors and suburbanites, Otterbox’s new Venture line promises to provide value for anyone needing a heavy-duty cooler. Available in three sizes—Venture 25 ($250), Venture 45 ($350), and Venture 65 ($400)—each holds a “true to size” internal capacity (Venture 25 has 25 quarts of capacity). Not only are they “certified bear-resistant” and have been drop tested “on every side and edge, empty and full,” but they also will keep ice frozen (and sweat-free) for up to a remarkable 14 days. Yes, that means that your parties won’t hit the point where you have to reach into a frigid vat of water known previously as ice—and you won’t have to soak your lawn with cooler water, either, once the party’s over. If that wasn’t enough, it comes with a modular system that attaches a cutting board, dry storage tray, organizational separators, a side table, and cup holders.
Even with all the bells and whistles, you might think $200 and up is a little pricey for a cooler. But know that Otterbox’s direct competitors Yeti have attained cult status among those who spend their time outdoors. The $200 Yeti Roadie Cooler—the closest product to the Venture 25—has near perfect ratings after thousands of reviews on REI, Amazon, Cabelas, and more.
