The main difference between neoprene koozies® and standard foam can coolers is the material and thickness of the products. But there’s a little more to it than that. So let’s take a closer look at these popular promotional products.
Can cooler comparisons
What are koozies® made of?
Neoprene can coolers are very similar to collapsible foam can coolers in style and shape. Standard koozie foam material is polyurethane. Neoprene, on the other hand, is a synthetic rubber that you’d probably recognize from wetsuits. It is very flexible, durable and provides superior insulation to keep beverages cold. Neoprene can coolers cost slightly more than foam can coolers.
Our own tests at Totally Promotional prove that neoprene is a slightly better insulator than foam.
Our premium foam collapsible can cooler is on the left and our neoprene can cooler is shown above at right. They look almost identical but have substantial differences as you can see a bit more in the images below.
Koozies® differ by thickness
It’s fairly easy to spot the difference in the thickness between foam and neoprene can coolers. The neoprene material is not as porous or thick as foam. Our neoprene can coolers are made of 3mm-thick neoprene; our foam can coolers are constructed with an elite 4mm polyurethane foam.
Another major difference between these two is the unique zig-zag stitching on each side of our neoprene can coolers (shown above at right). This gives our neoprene can coolers added durability. The result is a tighter fit on your can or bottle, ensuring that it is securely “hugged.”
