These DIY Polar Bear Tubes Are Incredible

Polar Bear tubes are a life-changing alternative to ice.

Polar Bear tubes are an amazingly simple solution to the drawbacks of keeping ice cold. Polar Bear tubes are super easy to make DIY-style, and the cost is extraordinarily low for each tube. The original idea for the Polar Bear tubes comes from Bill Shelton.

Materials

You need some PVC pipe. Shelton recommends a 2-inch pipe, but this can be adjusted based on the size of your cooler and your needs. A thicker tube will take longer to freeze, but it’ll also stay frozen longer. The only other materials are end caps for the size PVC you elect to use, as well as PVC glue. Make sure to use good glue, so the water doesn’t leak out of the pipes when it melts.
