Coolest: The eski of the future

A self-proclaimed portable party on wheels, Coolest is the eski for the 21st century. How could the humble eski be better, you might ask. After all, it already achieves the crucial tasks of keeping our beer, white wine, steaks and snags cold prior to a big barbeque. Apparently, the answer is by adding Bluetooth speakers, a blender and smartphone charger.

A self-proclaimed portable party on wheels, Coolest is the eski for the 21st century. How could the humble eski be better, you might ask. After all, it already achieves the crucial tasks of keeping our beer, white wine, steaks and snags cold prior to a big barbeque. Apparently, the answer is by adding Bluetooth speakers, a blender and smartphone charger.

In addition, Coolest features an LED light in the lid, a bottle opener, beach tires and inbuilt plates and cutting board. The eski has approximately 56 litres of storage; this is segregated, meaning not everything inside has to be kept on ice.

Coolest is being crowd-funded through Kickstarter and has already smashed its funding USD$50,000 funding goal. With 44 days of funding left to go, the project has already raised over USD$5 million. A Coolest cooler will back will set you back USD$185, but Australian backers will need to add on an additional USD$100 for shipping, due to the eski's size. If all goes to plan, Coolest will be available to purchase early next year.
