The Coolest Cooler Around - by Ryan Grepper At coolestkickstarter.com
Coolers (are) were one of those rare items that did not change much over the past 30 years of technological advancements!
But that’s over! Ryan Grepper’s Coolest Cooler is set to bring the classic outdoors chillers to the 21st century! After an earlier unsuccessful crowdfunding try back in December 2013, Grepper improved the Coolest Cooler, added new features, redraw it’s outer design and brought it back to Kickstarter!

As of today (that’s 37 days before the project’s end), the Coolest Cooler pledged $6.9 million US (about 140 times more than what Grepper was looking for)!!! That’s the third most funded project ever (after the Pebble with 10.2 million and the Ouya Video Game Console with 8.6 million) and still has 37 days to go!!! Amazing, isn’t it?

Let’s see what makes The Coolest so cool that everyone wants to have one! Here’s a bullet-list of features:

  • 2 x 5V USB chargers (1A and 2.1A charging power), perfect for charging tablets, smartphones and other USB powered gadgets
  • Removable waterproof Bluetooth speaker so you can enjoy your favorite music with your friends
  • Enjoy cool drinks with the built in ice crushing blender
  • Internal LED light to help you spot your drinks during night parties
  • Easy transportation system with gear tie-down and extra wide wheels for easy moving in sand and difficult terrains
  • Bottle opener
  • Incorporated essentials (reusable plates, a ceramic knive) and a cooler split lid to divide drinks and easily store eyes.
  • At last, but not the least … IT”S COOL!!!

The Coolest Cooler is in project mode at Kickstarter and you can get one for $185 (that’s $115 savings over the future regular retail price). Estimated delivery for February 2015.

Let’s hear you in the comments. What’s your take on the Coolest Cooler? Will you get one?

BBQ Picnic Table Hammock
Here at CoolPile.com we are big fans of multifunctional stuff!
Take for example the Bison Hammock Bag, the Fujitsu LifeBook 2013 or the Foldable Backpack Scooter they all combine multiple functionality to help users solve more needs than their individual counterparts.

So, imagine our joy when we spotted the Picnic Table Hammock! Use it as a regular BBQ table, turn it upside down and you have fully functional hammock! Amazing, isn’t it? The Picnic Table Hammock is available for a whopping $15,000 US, a little bit more than I would be ready to shred to get one (about $14,700 more I think!!!). What’s your take on it? How much would your shred to get one of these babies?

Sand-Free Beach Multimat by Cgear - Girl On The Beach And How it Works
There are 2 things than can go wrong when sunbathing on the beach – the beer is not cold enough and the mat is full of sand. Well … there are other things that can wrong too, but none of them competes with these two!

While one can cope with a warm beer (by exchanging it with a colder one), there is not much to do about sandy blankets! Or at least this is what I thought until I felt on the Cgear Sand-Free Multimat.

ALSO READ ABOUT the LoungePac – The Portable Beach Chair Featuring a Fridge, Umbrella And Sound System and The Hula Hoop – The Chanel Beach Bag That Lets You Hang Things On It

The beach mat features a patented dual layer technology which was initially used by military forces. The upper layer of the mat is designed to repel sand and other small objects and lets them drop through to the bottom layer. This second layer not only keeps the sand away from the first layer, but it is also designed to keep beach sand from sticking to the mat! Strong heavy duty D-Rings are attached to all corners to allow users efficient anchoring on windy bitches.

Kool Tool - The MacGyverish Belt Multitool
Remember MacGyver?
He was always able to pull a quick one and get rid of the army of bad people following him around in seconds! Part of his cool escapes was his brilliant mind (read the director’s brilliant mind) and part of it were various cool gadgets he had on him.
I bet if MacGyver was still around, the Kool Tool would be one of his main clothing accessories!

The Kool Tool Belt from Bison Designs is made to help you in various unpredicted situations life throws at you. The multitool stays quiet, hidden as a belt buckle waiting for you to request it’s assistance. The multitool buckle is made of strong steel and features three screwdrivers (Philips, large and small), three sizes wire stripper, a bottle opener, SAE and metric hex tools and a ruler (metric and standard). The actual belt is a black 44 mm ribbed webbing belt which goes well with jeans, dock or any other sports/casual pants.
