Winner of 6 sheets of TechniIce HDR valued at $39.95 including postage anywhere in Australia is Jim Piper of Cabrita, Victoria. TechniIce is a high-tech multi-purpose product that can be used as either a sheet of ice or a heat pack.

It comes in a light, flat sheet that expands into a 24-cell ice pack by just adding water.

When used as recommended, TechniIce stays frozen for days - six times longer than ice and three times longer than gel packs and most other ice packs when used in the same volumes.

Besides a cold pack TechniIce also doubles as a heat pack. The same sheet of Techniice can be used as both a hot pack and cool pack. Designed in Australia, TechniIce has become a big hit with outdoor enthusiasts. Established 26 years ago, it was only in recent years that Global National Australia (the company behind the TechniIce Company and their 5-16 day Iceboxes, Esky and reusable dry icepacks) decided to make their commercial quality outdoor products available to the public.

It was a ground-breaking decision for a traditionally 'trade only' company that is the supplier of commercial/industrial outdoor gear to an array of government departments and some of the worlds biggest organisations in over 38 countries from defence to airlines.

Now there is a range of outdoor products of high quality for about half the price typical in many retails outlets.

The quality of the products, from their military style swags and heavy duty trunk locker tool boxes to their quick release tie down ratchets, quick release fishing rod holders and ice boxes make these better than average for outdoor needs.
