    I came across Polar Bear Coolers in my business one day and decided to try one. After putting 60 K Miles on mine while riding my GS, I have decided to become a dealer for Polar Bear Coolers. They come in various sizes, but for ADV Touring the 6, 12, or 24 Pack work the best. The 6 Pack will fit inside of most Tank Panniers and the 12 and 24 Pack will fit on most Rear Panniers or on the rear seat. I have stopped using a Camel Back and I now just put the water bladder in my Polar Bear Cooler. Then I drink ice cold water all day, with plenty of room for “Other Refreshments “. I am offering a 10% discount off of the price of the Cooler and will donate 10% to Baldy for letting us hang out at ADV when we are not out Riding, or you can wave your 10% and I will donate the entire 20% to Baldy. NOTE: Discount applies to price of the Cooler only, not to shipping or embroidery fees and you must order thru me to get your discount.
    Here are the 6, 12, & 24 Pack

    I have one (24 pk). I find I use it on the boat and other places. It takes up less room than a hard side cooler. It folds flat on the bike, when empty, and hold ice longer than I have ever needed. I haven't even been able to punch a hole in it....yet. Great item. I will be getting the 12 pk :freaky for sure.:D

    OK, I'm going to give this cooler a try. I've been through 4 or more small coolers, foldable ones, ones with plastic inserts, etc. :huh Stonewall, If your getting 40K miles and a few years use out of this cooler, it must be pretty good. Order Sent!!! :clap

    They are cloth on the outside. Come flat until you put stuff in them.
    Stonewall, will you be going to the 49er rally in a couple weeks? Would love to get one of your fancy ADV cooler bags there

    Stonewall,

    What's your recommended way to secure these to a motorcycle? How do you do it on yours? i.e. what straps do you use and what attachment points are on the cooler? I'm interested in the 12-pack version. Thanks.

    Do you sell the ice sheets (listed on the manufacturer's website) too?

    I can get you anything that they make, but I have been real lucky on getting ice from where ever I eat.

    As for securing it, when I am riding solo it goes where my back seat would be using a cargo net or bungie cords. That way I can keep my camel back close at hand for ice cold water while riding all day. When I am two up it goes on my right side jessie bag using whatever straps that you use, running them thru the wide "D " rings on the bottom of the cooler. That way we can open and close it with out un-straping it, even while moving.
