The Journey

Lao-Tzu wisely said that “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Before that, you have a dream – a destination in mind. We set out to build the greatest cooler ever made. This is our story of a thousand miles, one single step at a time.

Science

 

Gel packs claim to outperform ice in keeping ice chests cool. In this test, Maluna founder Scott Hoyt pits cooler gel packs against good old fashioned ice. Watch to see whether the gel is worth the investment or whether you’re better off freezing some H2O.

The Pressure Regulator

The Pressure Regulator

Small changes in elevation or even temperature can develop a vacuum lock on a cooler that makes it almost impossible to open. Maluna Unhinged coolers contain a patent-pending pressure regulator that maximizes the internal vacuum to -6 KPA and ensures that your Maluna can be easily opened.

Located behind the bottle opener, the pressure regulator contains a calibrated spring, a ball, and a rubber seat.


To check that the ball is seated properly:

  1. Remove (unscrew) the bottle opener.

  2. Locate the rubber seat which looks like a round plug with a pinhole in the center.

  3. Gently push a pin or thin drill bit through the pinhole and feel for the ball inside.

  4. The ball inside should move with pressure applied and push back against the seat.

Fulfilling Kickstarter

Fulfilling Kickstarter

It’s been a few weeks since we were successfully funded on Kickstarter and fulfillment is in full swing. Our first backers have already begun to receive their coolers and even more or on the way. Maluna founder Scott Hoyt is spending the weekend stuffing decals into envelopes and sharing some thoughts on the fulfillment process.
