ARB Refrigerator review

So a few months ago thanks to Eric Valdes from ARB I acquired a 37 quarts ARB Refrigerator, which I was supposed to take on my summer trip and review. A Florida summer trip would be the perfect testing grounds for any refrigerator and although a little later than planned I still managed to test it in the Florida heat and humidity.


I won't go straight into the specs since those are available online but will post them at the bottom of this post for your convenience. The fridge has been in use in my home office since June of this year, and has done a great job as a beer fridge, and secondary fridge for when we shop for more food than we can fit in our refrigerator at home.


As shown in this picture this fridge has enough room to keep food for 2 adults for a 3-4 day trip (beer was kept in a different cooler to avoid opening the fridge excessively in approximately 105 degree weather with high humidity).

 
Here Derek demonstrates different ways to organize the food in the ARB Fridge (kidding aside these pictures gives you an idea of the actual size of the fridge in comparison to a 6'1" adult male)


I have to admit when I first met Eric from ARB and we began talking about this fridge I was skeptical at best, but he showed me the one he had in his Jeep that him and his crew were actually using at Jeep Beach in Daytona, and that began changing my opinion a little. These days I can't see myself not taking this fridge out for a day at the park, or any of my other trips, to say I'm impressed is an understatement. This fridge was designed to be extremely user friendly and with the outdoors in mind, from the LED light inside to the removable lid, and basket with removable partition for easy cleaning.

Long story short when it comes to keeping your food cold during your adventures (or relaxing beachside campouts), this fridge is amazing, however if you have a larger group, or longer trip look at the 50 quart or bigger sizes. They all share the same features including a battery protection system that will not allow the fridge to completely drain your vehicle's battery.
