I have a new PB cooler and yes it's great. I didn't order the ice pack with it as I had some old ones but was wondering if their's was better. The one they use is made by an Australian company Techni (technice) which is a pretty big supplier. It appears there are two options with their brand...the Polar Bear offering which I guess it water cells which you can cut to fit. The packaging is two color (blue and clear). The other, which might be a new model, is 3 color (clear, blue and red) and called HDR (heavy duty re-usable) and is characterized as a dry ice pack. It has a gel filling and the packs are cellular and can be cut to fit. Before I pull the trigger on the either one I'm looking for any user experience with them. Not a case of which is cheaper but more, which works better. Gel leakage etc.... Thanks..
