Features of Bison Coolers

Although Bison Ice Chest lack in some top-notch features as offered by other premium brands but few of its features are quite interesting. So, let’s break down the features of Bison Ice Chest.

  • Rotomolded Constructions: The most noticeable feature of Bison Coolers is the Rotomold Walls. The science behind the rotomolded construction is that the walls of the Bison Ice Chest are too strong to fall. The durability, strength, and strongness are worth noticing. Bison ice chest won’t fall apart if it meets with an accident staying as a one piece.
  • Two Inch Insulated Walls: Besides the rotomolded construction, one thing to look at is the two inch insulated walls. The two inches insulated walls keep your food and beverages cold that refresh you during the hot summer. Laced with shark fin gasket technology, the walls keep the cold air inside the Bison Ice Chest and let’s not escape air into the environment which eventually helps in keeping ice as ice for an extended period.
  • Rubber Latch System: Rubber Latch System replaces the conventional T latch technology and that really helps in the closing of the cooler thus not letting the cold air escape into the surroundings. Eventually, it helps in increasing the insulation period and ice retention period.
