Evakool will give you an extra day for the ice i.e. more efficient.
Tropic (the orange ones) not so but far more rubust.

Hi mate,

Just came back from a trip where temps reached 45 degrees on New Years Day. I picked up an extra esky so I could carry more ice and went for the Waeco "Cool Ice" brand. Seemed to do the trick nicely, these are a fair bit more expensive than your Coleman type though. Get what you pay for I guess. I am tired of lugging ice and eskies around though, time for a proper fridge! Good luck

Hi Shaker,

I only have the small square Waeco cool ice I use for my beers and comfortably fits about 15 beers in with ice. Works a treat for me and certainly wouldn't take it back but sounds like the fibreglass Evakool might be worth a look too.

Cheers

I have the 65 Lt Eva-cool (the white one) and have found it absolutely brilliant. They're not cheap, but top quality. I often freeze block ice in 4 lt ice cream containers and it just lasts forever in the Eva-cool. I've only ever found one small problem with it, and that is that if you slam the lid down you very often can't get it open again (they seal that well). However, they have a water drain, and if you ease the drain open it will allow sufficient air in to be able to open the lid again. I think it's a good problem to have and one that I can work with as it seals wonderfully well and does a great job and ice lasts forever.

Cheers ........................... KP.
