Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Cools your drinks without ice

  • Reality:

    The Chill.Systems Chiller's Pack does cool your drinks without ice. Keep in mind the high number of variables that factor into the end result. Air temp, sun exposure, how warm the drinks are when placed into the Chiller. Upon our testing, room temperature (69.4˚ F ) drinks were placed into the chiller pack and tested in 30 minutes, the resulting temperature was 61.8˚ F. After 1 hour of testing the drinks were recorded at 53˚ F.

  • Claim:

    Hold your favorite drinks

  • Reality:

    The most beneficial element of the Chill.Systems products is the design. Clever ingenuity allows for horizontal or vertical storage of normal sized drinks, that typically your favorite drinks would fall into. Be aware that unusual size and shape drinks will not fit as snuggly, or at all.

  • Claim:

    Portable and lightweight

  • Reality:

    Bulky coolers, no matter how trendy or effective cannot compete with the lightweight sleek design of Chill.Systems. The sunny day afternoon park culture of San Francisco has proven to be a great inspiration of necessity for the design of the Chiller's Pack and Chiller's Tote. Outdoor concerts and festivals can potentially be much easier with the addition of a Chill.Systems product.

  • Claim:

    Durable insulated construction

  • Reality:

    Not only does the design include style, but it also includes an insulated structure that allows for the Chiller itself to be efficient with minimal energy loss for the benefit of the end user.

  • Claim:

    Easy access design

  • Reality:

    The design, overall, has an easy access. The Chiller's Tote is the biggest beneficiary of an easy to access design with a much quicker access to drinks than the Chiller's Pack. The magnetic strap works great on the The Chiller's Pack, and with an added access point through a zip off back panel the user does not need to remove the entire Chiller core.

Bottom Line

Chill.Systems is founded by two people who created a solid product fueled by their own desire of cold drinks on a relaxing afternoon at the park. In testing, the high quality of packaging and materials used immediately stands out. The Chiller's Pack, The Chiller, and The Chiller's Tote are mixing up the cooler market by introducing style, ease of use, and design to a typically mundane and boring cooler market. Be advised, The Chiller will not perform miracles and make a warm drink cold in just a few minutes. Ideally, the Chiller's Pack and the Chiller's Tote will be used in tandem with The Chiller to keep cold drinks that are already cold at consistent temperature throughout an outing.
