Twice the Ice is Nice
All Pelican™ Elite Coolers, whether hard-sided or soft, will deliver the best performance if you follow the 2:1 ice ratio. This means you need to use twice as much ice as the goods you are packing into your cooler. You can cheat this ratio a little by using frozen water bottles that you can drink once they’ve thawed. Or skip the ice altogether and use reusable Pelican Ice packs that freeze colder than water.
