PackIt is the first freezable personal cooler that keeps anything you pack colder, longer: for up to ten hours. The Mini Cooler is the smaller version of the classic Personal Cooler and measures 8 by 8 by 3-inch. Its compact size allows the Mini Cooler to easily fit into bookbags, backpacks or briefcases. It is perfectly sized for a whole sandwich, snacks, or sliced fruit or cheese. All PackIt coolers have a patented eco-gel built permanently into the liner, eliminating the need for melting ice or bulky gel packs completely. Have you seen the school lunch menu? Yuck. Plus, buying lunch at work or school every day costs a fortune. PackIt lunch coolers allow you to pack healthy foods you never could before. Yogurt, milk, cheese, even leftovers from the night before stay fresh. According to the USDA, when food is left out at room temperature, bacteria multiplies rapidly and can cause your food to spoil. The cold eco-gel in Packits completely surrounds the bag so food stays colder five times longer than regular lunch bags, even ones that use a separate gel pack. Uneaten food comes home still fresh and goes back into the refrigerator for the next day, which reduces waste and saves you money. A recent study done by NBC affiliate WKYC-TV in Cleveland, Ohio compared the effectiveness of five lunch bags including the PackIt. They concluded that “All failed miserably – except for the PackIt,” at keeping yogurt and and a chicken sandwich safely chilled. PackIt products are designed by moms for moms.

Care: hand wash, not machine or dishwasher safe. Allow cooler to dry completely before freezing again.
