We have a coleman 5 day one and it is fantastic. Need to empty bags of ice into the bottom and it wors fantastcally. In France we topped the ice up every few days and it was like having a fridge.

I took a Coleman 5 day to camp bestival they really take up a lot of boot room with their thick insulation but it was lovely to drink half frozen drinks when we arrived that had been packed the day before and had sat in our car when it was 90degrees outside. But because it was so warm, by the second day nothing felt chilled they were more room temperature but at least they weren't warm and choc didn't melt. I'm also booked for this year and if I have the room ill take it but last year was my first time and I was geared up for warm weather clothes for the 4 of us but didn't think about the temp drop in the eve and me and the kids sat shivering on the field in cheap Ikea fleece blankets that I'd sown up to become fleece sleeping bag liners a bloody godsend! So warm clothes will be my priority even if its 80 odd degrees again and if that means no room for the drinks box ill just have to save a few more pounds and buy drinks there. I found it useful that there's drinking water taps all over to fill up water bottles so there's no need to spend too much.

Search comments in this board for Icey Tek cool boxes, look them up on CoolboxUK, and then look here! grin

MN might have Icey teks in their prodcut review pages?

They do get good reviews. Our friends have one and it seems to be good. They have said they are happy with it as long as they remember not to open the lid too often, to keep it cold inside.

Would anyone recommend one of those 5 day cool boxes like Igloo Max?
Was thinking of getting one for Camp Bestival this year as our beer was too warm last year and our chocolate melted too quickly despite being surrounded by frozen packs of UHT milk!
