On a warmer day I couldn't use them. They would hit 90-100deg and throttle. Ridiculously cheap and un-effective cooler
I thought the cooler looked good in all the pictures before I took them out of the box also. Very cheap was a good way to describe them and was very un-impressed with them the whole time I had them.
