Mount an A/C in them?

Seriously, why not just have some covers made up? There's a guy here on the Vendors area that can make about anything with Cordura or other fabrics. I'm sure he could make up something that would work as a cover if you reach out to him.

HERE'S THE THREAD

White waterproof rucksack covers

or some white spray on vinyl paint (better than standard paint as it'll peel off).

Is this for food or medicine?

It's for food. May try white spare tire covers to keep the heat down. Thanks for the replies.

You could get the cheep foam ice chest that cost like $2 bucks, cut it up to fit as a liner in the pannier, you would have less room, but it would be cool..

Aluminum tape? Like what they actually use on ducts. Reflective. Removable.

^^^ This plus the cheap Krylon paint and a little bit of dry ice from the super market and you've got yourself a pannier fridge. Just make sure you use the Styrofoam between the dry ice and the metal, otherwise it'll make it rather brittle, and you run the risk of breaking some mounts from a bump in the road... Or shattering it should you have some sort of impact.

I use an insulated lunch bag and ice packs or frozen bottles of water if you will have nightly access to a refrigerator. If not, a few heavy zip lock bags and you can obtain some ice from a motel/hotel ice machine, fast food restaurant, etc to make your own ice packs.

I'm going to do an on topic thread jack here and pose a question. What would it be worth to you guys to have mobile refrigeration on board your bike?
