    From what I gather this is a sort of a cup to keep for example a can of beer in.

    But why? Does the koozie keep it cooler or what?

    The purpose of a koozie is... ?










    I should not need to explain that I am from Iceland so I am not familiar with this product.

    your right though, its for holding can drinks such as soda or beer. though i dont know if its to keep them cold as much as its to keep your hand warm and to keep them from sweating (condensation) all over the place when the drink is really cold, as most people prefer their beers.

    hope that helps :)

    What they won't tell you is that it also allows you to bring your beer can in the street. :)

    I never knew those things were called koozies until the TB ones came out.

    All of the above--keep your hands warm, keep your drink cold, keep sweat from getting everywhere, and look darn cool in the process.

    You dont need a koozie if you learn to drink faster. :D
