Advertisement?[edit]

This looks like a cheap advertisement. If it's the same as a "cooler", then a definition and a link to "cooler" would be sufficient as the construction details are the same anyway.

See "Biro" for example: Ballpoint pen, the British English and Australian English word

Agree. Why describe construction methods of a cooler? This article is about just the brand name "Esky", not coolers per se. Format (talk) 05:28, 23 September 2008 (UTC)
Is the design and construction unique? Was it unique at the time it was first released? If so, its more than just a cooler. Also, coolers will not mention the unique Australian cultural links. Mdw0 (talk) 02:25, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
But if the things you ask are not true, then it is not anything more than a cooler. The "unique" cultural links (the use of the brand name "Esky" in some song lyrics - but not in any famous or iconic songs) are certainly not notable. The article on Pepsi does not mention all the references to that product in songs, in Joan Crawford movies, in MAD Magazine articles, even though all those things certainly occurred.

Chilly Bin[edit]

searching wikipedia for the New Zealand term of "chilly bin" redirects here where it may be more appropriate to redirect to cooler which is a page that has details about the New Zealand terminology. I'm not sure how to modify the redirect. Can anyone change this if I can't find it. (time to have some cold drinks on ice)

Invention?[edit]

The cooler is an american invention... not an australian one. Esky is just a word. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.4.63.151 (talk) 19:26, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

I agree. Esky is a brand name, only. There is no real need for this page as it stood with descriptions of cooler construction, etc. This article is currently a mess and probably should be a DAB page. (The references about Esky (cooler) aren't great and hardly establish reason why Esky (cooler) needs its own page rather than being mentioned in the main cooler page.)
