Outstanding Efficiency & Reliability

The Original and the Best.

If you’re after an extremely efficient and reliable chest style fridge freezer, the OG Bushman is the perfect fridge. With an oversized cooling unit for its 35 litre size, this fridge will stay cool in the hottest weather.

At only 380mm high, it fits easily in a tight spot. Like under a bunk in your truck or caravan, or in the back of a ute with a hard tonneau cover.

This is a great size fridge to use as your daily go-to, as a secondary drinks fridge, or as a true 12v deep-freezer.
