The secret sauce is the company’s “Temperature Elements,” which are some type of proprietary icepack-like object that the end user pre-cools, and which apparently hold their temperature like crazy.
You do, however, have to decide in advance what you’ll be hauling. The company offers five different levels of Temperature Elements, which are helpfully color-coded:
Where it really starts to get Yeti-like is the price:
The Cool Box M (27 liter, about 7 gallon, capacity) runs €400 (USD $481) with four Temperature Elements included.
The Cool Box L (43 liter, about 11.4 gallon, capacity) runs €505 (USD $608) with six Temperature Elements included.
Additional Temperature Elements, depending on which level you pick, run a whopping €80 (USD $96) each! Whatever magic material is inside is not cheap.
