The most compliments you'll get on a cooler. Ever.
The most compliments you'll get on a cooler. Ever.

It's official, we've done it again. We have infused military grade equipment with rugged durability and functionality, creating another amazing man-gift. We present to you the Combat Cooler. For years the US Military has been lugging freedom cartridges around the globe with Ammo Cans. Our design team knows that there is a beer-loving connoisseur in every red-blooded patriot, so we created the most bad-ass six-pack caddy and portable cooler hybrid ever. Using a standard American-Made Ammo Can, one bad ass laser, and a removable insulation insert we have developed the patent pending Combat Cooler to keep your brewskies frosty, portable, and your friends asking, "where can I get one?"

And now, a snippet about us... We are one of the fastest growing Veteran Owned and Operated businesses in Arizona. Having enticed Shark Tank's Mark Cuban and Kevin O'Leary to invest in their man-gifts, former Navy SEAL, Eli Crane, and his wife Jen now feature an ever-expanding product line. Our mantra is built on our Made in the USA promise driven by the belief that it is our duty to serve those who serve us.

Risks and challenges

Operation Combat Challenges: in the interest of transparency, there are a few mountains we have had to overcome to bring this product to market.

Full disclosure, this is our first ever Kickstarter campaign. Welcome, we're glad you could join us. That being said, we intend to learn from this experience and hope to deliver on the promise of American made innovation and badassery. We are going to do everything we can to commit to our production and delivery schedule and get this highly anticipated product cooling your beers. If you have any questions, we'll be here for you every step of the way.

We would like to make one thing very clear: Bottle Breacher is a Made in the USA brand. We are committed to bringing you everything in our Combat Cooler from right here in the USA. Not only is this piece inspired by freedom protecting cartridge haulers, but it is made 100% on our home turf. The challenges this quest presents are ever present and numerous. We scoured local manufacturers to ensure we bring to the party not just the coldest brews, but the most badass American-made product. This is difficult because this is not always the most cost effective play, but we feel it's the right one. We believe in doing our part to stimulate our local economy.

For this product to come to fruition and be the stellar masterpiece we demand, hardcore testing was performed to work out the kinks. The main issue we found in product development and testing was making sure the Combat Cooler will not leak. Ice does one thing on a hot day: melt. You don't want this mess all over your backseat or on the porch, so we did our part to ensure this does not happen. Your Combat Cooler is fully powder coated, getting into and sealing the crevices of the cooler. The added removable insulation limits excessive leaking into the can but do not fear if water gets into the can, we have your six.

The Combat Cooler has been one of our longest concept to market products. Rest assured, we fine-tuned this upcycled rugged ammo can to ensure that the only thing you should worry about is having enough cold ones to go around. Cheers and #breacherup!
