Not even gunfire can stop it from preserving your perishables

What is this, John Rambo in cooler form?

All we know is one minute we’re reviewing the specs of a heavy-duty storage system designed by combat veterans, and the next we’re seeing footage of it barrel-rolling through fields in a hail of bullets.

Let’s roll it back a sec.

The Speedbox Endurance-40 is a military-grade storage container system that is used by the Army Special Forces, Navy EOD and Air Force Pararescue Jumpers — so you know it’s tough. It was designed as a response to faulty materials that compromised time and safety and couldn’t stand up to the intense wear-and-tear of constant usage. It’s not strictly for food, but because it is airtight, watertight and features a built-in gasket, it works beautifully as one.

Take a look at those un-deflatable off-road tires: those’ll never fail you out in the wild. Made-in-America of shatter-resistant polymer, each of these beasts has a 300-pound capacity, and is secured with two locks to keep out bears (or hungry kids). The aluminum and steel handle system also has “Never-Fail” built into the product name, so good luck wearing it out.

If you buy in bulk (like the military might), the design is efficiently stackable and interlocking, so even a pallet’s worth of boxes will come out undinged on the other side. Not exactly a rainbow of color options: you get to choose from black or the new “coyote brown.”

With a two-year, 100%-satisfaction guarantee, that’s plenty of time to take it out a few times and give it your best shot (don’t quote us on that; read the fine print first).
