Our 50qt cooler was tested with grizzly bears at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center and passed the live bear test. Therefore, the cooler meets IGBC minimum bear-resistant design and structural standards. Passing does not, however, guarantee that a bear will never gain entry into the product. Specific product dimensions, details and the assigned IGBC certification number follow: IGBC Certification Number 235470
We are proud to make our Hard coolers and Soft coolers in the USA
Our Drinkware is imported, in fact "all" stainless steal, double walled, vacuum sealed drinkware from all brands are imported. So there is no such thing as a USA tumbler made to these.
Why Tumblers are Not Made in The USA?
1. The raw material of stainless steel. Now China has the biggest production output for stainless steel material so that they have the most competitive cost.
2. Lack of skill manufacturing engineer and workers. The stainless steel manufacturing production relies on a lot of workers and experienced engineers. Although automation equipment can replace workers but it needs big investment at the beginning and big volume order quantities to support the constant production.
3. Strict environment policy. The stainless steel tumbler is reusable, environmental- and eco-friendly. But the manufacturing process related to plating, electrolysis, polishing and painting all have pollution, which is not accepted in the USA.
In short, there can be no stainless steel tumblers made in the United States because of the labor, cost, efficiency, and environment factors. If these tumblers are not made in China, they will also be made in other countries except the United States.
However we do go the extra mile by printing, assembling and finishing the drink-ware in our Ft Worth Texas facility as a US job creation.
