Anyone bought the cooler box I don't want topay the price but am thinking about it.

I have it but don't plan to use the systainer since it's a limited addition . I might move the insert to a regular sys 4 and go ahead and use that.

Ha ha, I bought a real cooler

But also bought one of these because it was cheap and will fit in the stack out in the garage.  Keep a few cool 'beverages' in there.  Not saying it's going to be the best cooler ever.

I have too many coolers sitting idle right now to be bothered with a limited edition product.  I'd much rather save the cash for the more-needed Kapex.

Tangos do make cooler inserts for the sys5 - VanTainer (UK importer for Tanos) had one at the show I was at a couple of weeks ago, but it's not on their website. Should have bought it there and then, or at least asked the price... [embarassed]

I have one. I used it while camping over the 4th of July weekend and it works pretty well and is easy to clean. No regrets.

I bought one because I already have a Kapex for 5 years(?) and am not saving up for any Festools. I love it because it is so much easier to open during drive time than my last lunch box with zippers. It stacks on top of my vast collection of systainers and it is SUCH a  conversation piece. Buy one or miss out!!!

Actually I use mine for a different purpose. I use it to keep adhesives in the right temp range on overly hot or cold days. Not for food or beverages.

That would be smarter and more tempting, especially regions like mine where 100 F (37 C) is commonly well exceeded in the summer.

With the labeling area so small, NOTHING stands out in a stack of systainers

If you only have 1 black systainer, you need to get a few more limited editions or some more Tanos boxes. :)

Here is a cooler that has EVERYTHING you would want in a cooler

The Coolest Cooler

That is a buddy of mine. I backed him on day 1 and now he is over 5 million!!

I have used his "crappy" homemade one a few years ago. We all made fun of it then, but now he will be the one laughing... All the way to the bank!!

My wife bought me one for fathers day.  I was quite surprised that she bought it - and also quite surprised at how well it keeps ice even in the hot sun.  It doesn't hold a lot, but it fits well inside the truck which makes it easy to flip it open and grab a cold drink when cruising from job to job.

The latter. With in minutes of posting this she walks in here and says to me "What did you buy today". BUSTED she knows me tooooo well. Oh well she bought me a Festool mat at Christmas. Great partner.

Should be Blue / Black (looks black) not anthracite, which is dark gray.

darn it, I could not think of a reason for this. Now seeing the incognito cooler and realising nobody would question it while walking into a commercial job means I probably do need it.
