My "deluxe" FIGJAM cooler

I've finally gotten around to documenting the build of my "deluxe" FIGJAM cooler, deployed on playa last year with great success. My improvements consist primarily of intake air filtration and an industrial-grade in-line fan to pressurize my tent with dust-free air 24/7, even when no evap cooling is...
