Aesthetics and Function
We are delighted to use our Nutshell in all of our Summer activities. Be on a picnic at the park or on a beach, for boat use, and as a bucket for sodas during parties at home! We love the aesthetics of it and the upcycle design using coconut husks - a waste material that could have been discarded anyway. Except for a minor S closure design adjustment, which will be replaced soon, this cooler hits all the marks, including keeping the cold inside for a long, long time.
Thank you so much for your review and feedback, Rosie! So happy to hear you're enjoying the summer with your Nutshell :)
Fantastic cooler, but know what you’re buying
This is NOT a 5 days overlanding in Baja cooler. It’s a car camping, backyard BBQ cooler. And for that purpose, it’s crazy good. Even fully loaded, it’s well weighted and can be thrown over a shoulder so you can carry other stuff. It keeps ice at least as long as the old igloo cooler I also use. And it’s a great conversation piece, people are curious. ‘Coconut? Oh, instead of plastic foam!?’ Is basically how the conversation goes. I think the lid could be better. It requires a little finessing to get into place when closing. But for a v1 design, that’s forgiven (even loosely closed, it hood ice pretty well. I’m stoked to own one.
Loving Our Nutshell!
I love our nutshell cooler! I make homemade ice cream which I like to bring to friend and family gatherings, often hours-long trips. It’s easy enough to find a cooler to keep beers and sodas cool for a couple of hours but nearly impossible to find a cooler that will actually keep frozen things frozen. With nutshell I’ve even started to bring ice cream on day beach and boat trips without worrying it will melt before it’s time for dessert. Also, it sounds silly but having a cooler with a flat surface that can stand alone sturdily is a game changer. Plastic coolers will slide all over a boat deck and other branded coolers don’t have a nice flat top. My nutshell is an instant table at the beach without sand in my food! It’s an easy space to put sunscreen, sunglasses on etc. Finally, it’s really attractive, which helps :)
Great product with a wonderful mission
The coolers are wonderfully designed and looks very classy when I use it to make deliveries for my business. Even placing the cooler at the back of my pickup, with direct exposure to the sun, it has kept my products cold. And to top it all off, it is helping both the environment AND small scale coconut farmers. It's a WIN-WIN in all areas!
Thanks so much for your review, Michelle! Love to hear Nutshell is helping out with your business deliveries!
Works as a carry on
I love this cooler, especially that it packs flat when not in use because I live in a small space. It's such a gorgeous color too! And if you need to keep things cold on a flight, can confirm: the Nutshell fits in an overhead bin and under the seat in front of you.
Thanks for the review, Nic! So glad you're finding Nutshell's foldable design so useful!
