Flip-Box Collapsible Iceless Cooler by Sport-Brella {Review & Giveaway}

Sport-Brella logo
I am to the point in my life where I want anything and everything that we own to be versatile, convenient and high quality... and, if it includes the ability to store easily, that's a major bonus. Why deal with bulky, junky not-so-useful things that just clutter up our lives?

Therefore, when I heard that Sport-Brella, a company that we already know and love from their original Sport-Brella and Sport-Brella Chair, had debuted an innovative new product, I had no doubt that it would be one that would benefit our lives just as much as their prior pieces.

Sure enough, when the Flip-Box arrived, it didn't take long to see the unique, handy, user-friendly and practical purposes it could provide.

The ultimate in cooler performance, the Flip-Box keeps beverages cold for up to six hours without ice and is also ideal for hot foods, retaining heat for hours at a time. This durable, compact product can be used to keep groceries cold while out running errands or load up hot foods for your next tailgate... plus, when not in use, it folds down flat in seconds for easy storage!

Is there anything that the Flip-Box can't do? I was ready to find out.

Flip-Box cooler review

Arriving folded flat, the first thing I noticed as I pulled the Flip-Box out of its packaging was that it is extremely lightweight and easy to assemble. While my ever-skeptical husband was immediately thinking that the construction would hardly hold up to use, I knew that Sport-Brella had put much more research and thought into this product than just recreating a cheap, flimsy Styrofoam cooler.

In fact, the Flip-Box is made from Neopolen P, an ultra-durable industrial-strength material — the same material used in car bumpers and bike helmets — meaning that it has been designed for years of use. Sport-Brella is so sure that you're going to be using your Flip-Box time and time again that they even include a 10-year manufacturer warranty with each one!

Flip-Box cooler durability

While the fact that this cooler can be folded up and stored easily (perfect for travel or simply to have in your car), it only takes seconds to pull up the sides and assemble it for use.

Step 1: Fold up the first two sides.

Step 2: Fold up the remaining two sides, latching them into place with their puzzle-piece connectors.

Step 3: Place your item(s) inside and rest easy knowing that they are staying cool or warm!

Flip-Box step 3

Measuring 18.5" x 10" x 16.5," the Flip-Box has a 26-quart capacity and can hold up to 45 cans, which makes it great for BBQs, potlucks, parties, tailgates, trips to the beach, keeping groceries cold, and much more. Just grab it by the built-in handles and you're ready to go!

Sport-Brella Flip-Box cooler review

When you're done, simply fold the Flip-Box back down and stash it back in your car or pantry for next time.

On the chance that there was a spill, it is fast and easy to wipe out the inside of the Flip-Box or disassemble it into individual pieces and put it right in the dishwasher!

Just the thing for all of your outings and trips this summer and beyond, the Flip-Box retails for $29.99 and is available at Sport-Brella.com, from retailers nationwide, and on Amazon.

I love that it is so light, requires no ice (as long as your items are cold before being placed inside), folds up and down in a snap and can be stored compactly just about anywhere — is there anything that this innovative cooler can't do or places that it can't go?

Flip-Box cooler uses

Find out much more about the Flip-Box as well as all of Sport-Brella's other innovative products by visiting Sport-Brella.com and connecting with them on Facebook.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be prepared for their next heating or cooling experience as well, because...

One lucky person will win a Flip-Box from Sport-Brella!
