While not inexpensive ($274.95 online) the makers of the Pelican Elite 30-quart cooler claims it will keep your ice frozen for up to 10 days. (They also claim in a YouTube video that it can stand up to an attack by grizzly bears!)

The price may also be worth it when you consider the Pelican comes with a lifetime guarantee. As they say, “You break it, we replace it … forever.”
