Polar Bear Soft Cooler Review

Nothing makes your experience with nature more fun and exciting than some chilled ice cream, soda, or fruits. Whether you are camping, taking hikes, or going for a long road trip, it’s better with some snacks on the road. However, having your favorite soda stay chilled is not something that happens quickly. That’s why you need to invest in a quality cooler.

About the Product

Polar Bear, as a company, is famous for its quality soft-sided coolers. The company went ahead to make a statement by adding a variety to its collection of coolers that come in different sizes and shapes. These coolers provide ample storage space, have low maintenance, and are stain-resistant. The best part about purchasing a Polar Bear cooler is that you get the opportunity to customize it.

One thing you’ll immediately notice when you get the Polar Bear Cooler is its rugged exterior. The cooler looks like a canvas tote and comes with a nylon outer shell for guaranteed durability. The 1000-denier nylon is robust and has a fantastic feel. What’s more, the outer shell is resistant to cuts or scratches, making this the perfect outdoor cooler.

The zippers are unbreakable and are from the world’s largest zipper manufacturer. That aspect of durability is what has made the Polar Bear cooler get loyal customers over the years.

You can choose from several dolors-orange, red, navy blue, black, green, and camouflage designs.

Find the waterproof TPU lining that ensures you don’t have to deal with leaks. Everything is tested and approved by the FDA, which means you don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals. The inner surface doesn’t retain odors, and you can quickly clean it by wiping the surface down with a cloth. Polar Bear also puts in a bottle opener on the zipper, which comes in handy when you need to have your beers on the go.

The company also offers a limited lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects. That assures you, the cooler will get fixed if anything goes wrong.

Find a one-inch thick high-density open-celled foam inside this shell. The foam prolongs ice life and increases rigidity. Polar Bear goes ahead to add a heavy-duty 10 YKK weatherized zipper that rides along with a paint pending sew design to give the cooler a unique look and maximize on performance.

The open-cell foam insulation helps to keep your drinks cold for more than 24 hours. For extra space, the cooler comes with a front zipper pocket that you can put your keys, phone, and wallet. When transporting the cooler, you’ll find the overhead carrying handle and the adjustable shoulder strap convenient. You can use the tie-downs at the base of the cooler to secure it to a truck bed, boat, kayak, or anywhere else.

When it comes to capacity, the medium-sized cooler can pack at least 18 cans inside. You can put ten pounds of ice in the extra space to keep your drinks cold. Moreover, the open pockets on the sides are suitable for stashing beer doozies or bottles.

Another impressive feature of this cooler is its portable nature. It has a comfortable weight, and the lower part of the panel comes padded with foam to ensure it sits well against your back. The padded shoulder straps are easy to adjust and add to the comfort. With the 24-pack, you have ample room for 20 cans of soda or beer.

Polar Bear also offers a two-year no-hassle full replacement warranty for manufacturer’s defects. Previous buyers had an easy time with their customer service, which means you should not have any problem sorting out warranty issues.

Considering the performance, quality of materials, and lifespan of the Polar Bear cooler, you’ll find its price reasonable compared with other expensive coolers that don’t have these features.
