ARB Weatherproof Elements Fridge

There is no arguing that the popularity of modern overlanding has greatly expanded over the past few years.  Entire builds, divisions, and companies have seized on the growing ground that sits neatly between camping and off-roading.  What had its roots in classic vehicles like the Land Rover Discovery, G-Class, and older Jeeps has trickled down into modern SUVs, mid-sized trucks, and even full-size pick-ups (like this insane Hellwig/Nissan build).  On a parallel course of popularity has been the extreme cooler segment.  Brands like Yeti and RTIC have capitalized on the previously sparse offerings in the high-end cooler market.  But while those are great products, there is still a need for something even more powerful and functional in the overlanding space. Well here it is—the ARB Weatherproof Elements Fridge.

Elements Fridge

ARB has quite a history of manufacturing high-end off-road and camping products.  Based in Australia (where the term ‘overlanding’ was coined), ARB knows a thing or two about traveling far off the beaten path.   The Elements Fridge joins their line of 37-82 Qt. offerings, but with a black and metallic look, this unit is a brawny departure from their previous design.  Three years in the making, the Elements Fridge has a bevy of features I wish my Kenmore had at home.   Steel construction, a gas strut, and an electronic locking system are just a few of the niceties boasted by this fridge–check out the laundry list of features below!
