The wife has some 'girly' plastic Gel filled packs that she has been using in a quality Soft Side Cooler when she goes to the beach for 4 or 5 hours. I noticed they don't keep past 4 hours. I'm always looking for cold packs. So.....Initially I bought 2 NU-ICE. I froze them overnight and placed them flat on the bottom of the soft cooler. These things are 'AWESOME!' We are both amazed that they did thaw ALL day on the beach!! ALL DAY!! They were still froze when we put them back in the freezer. The 'girly' others were liquid!!! I have never used a better ice pack that lasts as long. I'm not rich...but use a lot of $ice$ Honestly.... I bought 7 more and want to get more. I will be using them in my 'Roadie' this week and as long as they last.
Pros:Last All Day in the bottom of a soft cooler!
Cons: Nu-ice are on the $high end$ but... are worth it!!!!!
