Bear Proof Certified Coolers

Working in Yellowstone, we are meeting some very interesting people while waiting tables in one of the Fountains located in the General Store

I was talking with a guy yesterday and we got to talking about what he does for a living. He told me his company made high end coolers that most of the Float Companies used when they needed to keep food cold for multi-day trips while white water rafting and extended expedition trips.

He told me they were approached by Montana Game & Fish a few years back asking if they could incorporate some sort of locking mechanism into their coolers so they would be safe in bear country.



He said they reworked some design aspects of the coolers and now have the first cooler that is certified bear safe! These coolers also outperform the Igloo Extreme coolers that are supposed to keep ice frozen for multiple days.

Thought it might be a good bit of info for those of us who travel and make their way into hostile territory where bears might be present. Especially if you're keeping the cooler in the back of a Jeep, truck bed or by the trailer and the campsite doesnt have bear boxes available.

Just thought I'd pass along a little info that might be helpful to some of us travelers

Oh, the company name is Yeti Coolers - Check it out, they're pretty sweet!!

Also, for those that might think Certified Bear Proof is just some label them put on the coolers, check out this Youtube Link which shows a full size grizzly trying to get into one of the coolers. Pretty funny.

Thanks Dan, and if we're on that side of the country, we'll be there for sure!
