Flip Box Cooler a great idea for boaters. One thing with most boaters is they like to eat and drink. For storage of drinks and food we often use coolers, but they can take up a lots of spacer. For storage sometimes a large Igloo type cooler works well, other times a soft pack cooler works well and other times your boat has a fridge and oven onboard.
One useful additional item for a boat is the folding Flip Box cooler. This small cooler folds flat and can be stored without taking up much space. With the Flip Box you can carry warm or cold food stuffs to your boat, keep them at temperature, load them into the boat and then fold the cooler so it can be stored without taking up lots of space.
The design is very simple. each side hinges around the base. The top folds open, then the short sides fold down and then the long sides fold down. You end up with a much smaller shape and size which can easily be stored without using too much space. The sides are insulated and made from Neopolen P, whatever that is.
The cooling will not last for days, but is good for transporting food to and from a boat and then transfer the food or drinks to the boats fridge, cooler or oven. If you need a cooler that will keep drinks cold for the longest time possible you will need a solid cooler with thick insulation. But these are large and occupy lots of space.
