Released in mid-2017, the new ARB Elements Weatherproof Portable Fridge Freezer is built of stainless steel and sports a fully weatherproof exterior. With its rugged design, this fridge freezer is equally at home mounted in the bed of a pickup, on a slider in the back of a SUV or Jeep 4x4, in a garage, in the kitchen of a camper, or even on the deck of a boat. Engineered specifically for overlanders and those who brave the elements, rain or shine, the ARB Elements will make sure your food and beverages stay chilled on all your adventures.
Why should I get a fridge freezer? I already have an awesome cooler...
For adventurers new to the overlanding space, getting an ARB fridge on a slider, (complete with a dual battery set up to power the fridge) is one of the most impactful improvements you can make to your rig. For long journeys, or even short ones where you want to eat well outdoors, upgrading from a cooler to a fridge freezer makes a huge difference in having a comfortable adventure. Plus, no more having to break out your cell phone mid-journey to try and figure out where to buy more ice for that pesky cooler. With a fridge you can stay immersed in the outdoors, both physically and mentally. Even the best coolers can't compete with the infinite 'ice retention time' of a portable ARB Elements fridge freezer.
Once you make the transition away from tolerating coolers, you'll wonder why you didn't upgrade sooner. From that gross ice-water seeping into bacon packages- even when you use a ziplock bag, to the disintegrating cardboard egg cartons, to beer bottles with soggy glue labels, to not being able to bring that extra six pack because you have to leave room for ice... there's a reason why you have a fridge rather than a cooler in your kitchen at home. Don't put up with one when living outdoors either- there's a better way to camp.
Plus, with a fridge freezer you can skip that obligatory stop to buy ice before you hit the road- making it that much faster and easier to get out of town.
ARB Elements Weatherproof Portable Fridge Freezer (63QT) Features
In addition to its weatherproof and durable stainless steel exterior, the ARB Elements Portable Fridge Freezer features a gas strut assisted lid, which means you don't even need to hold the lid open as you search the fridge. Wandering hands will be thwarted by the new programmable 4-digit pin lock, ensuring that fridge temperatures are not changed, drinks are not swiped and power is not switched off without your consent.
