SPACE AGE IS NOW
Outdoor Essentials Protection
We designed our rugged accessories to be the perfect four season companion to protect your outdoor essentials. Built with aerogel on the inside and waterproof/airtight construction on the outside, our ultralight "soft coolers" are built to be taken down class four rapids or through the heart of cold smoke country on a stormy December day. Cold Case Gear was founded after a New Years trip to Rocky Mountain National Park did not go as planned. During this trip, Founders' wife, Deirdre Denali, had all her camera batteries die during the first night of a four day trip. Upon getting back to their residence in Silver Plume, CO, the idea for Cold Case Gear was born. By combining aerogel insulation and airtight closure mechanisms Cold Case Gear is offering the first of its kind "soft cooler" that can continually have its insulating power re-optimized with the power of your own breath. When extreme conditions call for it you can open the airtight closure and blow some warm air into our soft coolers and then seal them shut.
Keeping your outdoor essentials safe is what we do best.
Cold Case Gear was developed after years of spending frigid winters in Northern Minnesota and the stifling desert heat of the Badlands of South Dakota. Extreme temperatures wreck havoc on all of our outdoor essentials, especially our electronics and our food. The initial idea for Cold Case Gear came about after a New Years backcountry trip in Rocky Mountain National Park, a tradition for the founders. All of the camera batteries died after the first night out, with temperatures hovering between zero and ten degrees(f). Upon returning from this trip inspiration struck. Could we use insulating material to keep these batteries from dying? After ordering some sample insulation and running several tests, it was concluded that not only did this idea work, it worked far better than initially thought. Fast forward several months later and the first prototypes were created and tested. It was then that we found out that it could work on any number of things, from food to water filters. Everything worked better when stored in the insulated pouches. That all started as just an idea on January 1 of 2018. Now, thanks to our supporters, we are selling product nationwide.
