Fridge Freeze
Keep your food and drinks cold on the trail with a portable refrigerator from Fridge Freeze. Because it uses condenser coils and no fan, the 12-volt/110-volt fridge has a low amp draw, even in very hot conditions. The exterior is made of marine-grade, anodized aluminum, while 3 inches of polyurethane foam provide the insulation. The Fridge Freeze is available in 60.0L, 45.0L, and 35.0L models.
