I was so happy to be given the opportunity to review this product. The extra ice (along with the Styrofoam cooler) were two products I was required to purchase in order to receive the vaccines I needed. A bit of a quandary since I didn't have a choice. It's part of the shipping costs. We do reuse the ice packs.
These packs stay cold, for sure! I was concerned when I ordered Azodyl (I used the 2 day instead of overnight) and was told everything would be fine. They were correct!
Great easy to use
For the price that they charge for shipping you would think the extra ice and shipping box would be free.
Here in Texas where there is constant drought and over 100-degree heat, this is a real blessing for a small price. Absolutely LOVE the polar box!
