Is that a custom home made aluminum foil over cardboard liner in the video?

Anyone recommend those, whatever it is?

Is this possibly an upgrade to a plain cardboard spacer for dry ice?

=========

Secondly, is the stated capacity accurate?
If it is within a percent that is a big plus in this industry.

The bubble foil was from home depot used for ducting. The foil worked too good with these coolers, it was a real pain everything was frozen in too solid, at pierce we had to chisel out about 50lbs of ice. The trip I just finished in Sep we still had ice 25 days from home no foil (you just don't need it.)
On the web site we have the actual inside capacity level to the lower top lip. 150=146qts, 110=110qts, ect. you could squeeze a little more in on top.

Black Rock.

That's a nice offer on your cooler. It was good timing too as I'm been looking at options to fit my 36" Madcatr frame.

A lot of the manufactures use the overall outside displacement as their size reference. I didn't learn that till we set one of our coolers next to a competitor and found our smaller quart size cooler was larger than their “larger quart size cooler”.

But the Canyon Cooler claims almost the same internal dimensions, just one inch shorter in length and holds 98 cans w/o ice or 81 with "the necessary amount" (their words when I called) of ice.

Your's seems to hold a LOT more cans for pretty much the same external and internal dimensions. And I think I've read that your wall, lid, and floor specs are at least similar if not thicker than some others.

Interested in your cooler.

Thx

If the internal dimensions are that close, then the can count should be roughly the same. I don't know why the discrepancy, but perhaps how the cans are set in? I can say for certain that we actually did fit that number in the cooler. We did it the slow way--bought cans, bought bag ice, and loaded everything in the coolers by hand to get can capacity counts for every size. 128 cans plus ice was tight, but it's been done, and we have pics. We did take the cans out of the 6 pack rings and boxes (wouldn't want those on the river anyway) and so they nested together a little tighter.

Bottom line: both brands at that size hold a LOT of whatever you are wanting to haul.

So sorry - missed seeing your question come in on this thread.

The 110L Black Rock Cooler is approx 32" x 17.5" at the base.

As for the can count: yes, that's without ice. We re-did the can counts with ice, and missed updating that on the website. Headed there now to fix. It should read 128 cans + 4 bags ice.

Thanks for your questions.
