The Edge Tub Review

The Edge Tub

We chose this for its portability and style while having some great advanced features like wifi and temperature control.  Well worth considering for stepping up your cold plunging - especially if you're looking for an on-the-go solution.

The Portable King

We give the Edge its title as “The Portable King” in the realm of the cold plunge tubs. Crafted from robust, high-quality material similar to that used in inflatable stand-up paddle boards and inflatable boats, it’s incredibly durable yet lightweight, weighing only 25 lbs. It even comes with a backpack, making it even more transportable – and the fact that we were able to set it up in under 20 minutes makes this so easy for cold plunging on the go.

Despite its inflatable design, The Edge Tub is built to support substantial weight, capable of withstanding a 200-pound male on its edges without any issues. We also love the compressor, allowing the tub to cool water down to a brisk 37 degrees Fahrenheit, eliminating the need for ice.

Who’s it for?

We think this is the perfect tub for those who find themselves doing extended traveling – as it’s so easy to bring to different destinations and will also look great in your home.  While it can be used in recreational facilities like a gym or a permanent fixture home, we do recommend other options, like the Plunge.

Smart Features:

Not high on our priority list, but the chiller is Wi-Fi-enabled, allowing you to schedule temperature shifts.   For example, some may take a morning ice bath and an evening hot tub session.

Power Requirements:

Operates on a standard US 120v/60hz power supply on a dedicated 15-amp circuit.  AKA, this chiller works in a standard outlet.

Size:

4.4 ft L x 2.6 ft W x 2ft H

(Ideal for anyone up to 6’4)

The Setup

Less than 20 minutes.

The Negatives

First and foremost is the high price point. This is not cheap and not for everybody although certainly worth it if you have a high budget. Secondly, while the tub is designed to handle a wide range of temperatures, it’s not recommended for use in freezing environments or temperatures under 40 degrees Fahrenheit as it can damage the chiller.

Also, while the chiller can handle light sprays and dust – it is best to keep it under cover

Final Thoughts

Depending on your lifestyle, the Edge Tub could be a great fit.  It’s a super solid tub that we feel confident you will not regret and certainly get a lot of use out of for years to come. If you plan on purchasing, make sure to use our code:
