Lately we have been getting a lot of questions about traveling by air with ice packs. Here’s the skinny…

You can bring Cooler Shock packs through security as long as they are frozen, no issues. (You can get details at TSA.Gov)

If the packs are defrosted they will not let you take them on the plane.  Consider checking ahead at your hotel or other destination to be sure you can re-freeze the packs to take them home.
Of course you can transport the dry packs if they have not been hydrated yet.  The CS packs should stay frozen all day if you take them to the airport in a cooler.

We’ve had a lot of questions related to this and the transportation of breast milk. It seems that we’ve been mentioned somewhere on a website regarding the great success one Mom had using CS for this purpose. If you have specific need please check our chart for usage on our main web page or contact us for specific details.

Stay Cool!

    I am so excited to share my experience. I recently had to leave my home in Alaska to work in California for a week before flying back to Alaska. I am a mother to a beautiful 8 month old who is exclusively breastfed. This trip was quite stressful for me, as it was the first time I would be traveling without my baby and the first time I would be pumping for an extended amount of time. Dumping my breastmilk was not an option for me, as I am passionate about breastmilk, so I decided to do some research and came across the Cooler Shock Ice Free Cooler and Cooler Shock Large Freeze Packs. I was interested after reading some information on their website, and decided to call and ask questions about my specific situation. I spoke to a very helpful gentleman named Dave, who answered my many questions, and I was sold. I ordered the products from Amazon and they arrived very quickly! I followed the instructions on how to set up the freeze packs, which were very easy. I asked the hotel if I could store my freeze pack in their deep freezer two days before flying and had no issues. Then travel day came and I was anxious. Would my frozen milk make it through the California heat and time it took to travel all the way back to Alaska? Well about 14 hours later, my milk was frozen solid and the freeze packs even had the frost residue that was present when they were removed from the hotel deep freezer. This product was AMAZING! Kept my milk frozen (using all three packs), so I am sure it would work just as well for keeping food or drinks cold with less packs in the cooler. Definitely must purchase if you are looking for a product to keep something frozen or cold for an extended amount of time. And the clean-up was effortless! No ice or water to clean up. No hassles with dry ice. I just put the three large freeze packs into the 24 can cooler shock soft cooler with my frozen breastmilk in the two middle spaces. I am a VERY happy customer and even more so that my baby gets to drink her milk that her mommy worked very hard for.
