Located in Sweetwater, Texas, IcyBreeze is the world's first and only true portable air-conditioning product, and the coldest blowing portable A/C unit that can be plugged into a wall, 12V car adapter, or run on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, without the need for exhaust venting or condensation drain lines. The product also serves as a high-quality portable cooler.
IcyBreeze is the industry leader in manufacturing and Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) distribution of personal air conditioning and heat relief solutions. The company’s products combine portable AC with an insulated cooler perfect for outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds, including camping, fishing, youth and adult sports, aviation, golf, tennis, boating, outdoor concerts and event venues, parents with infants and toddlers, pet pamperers, and more.
IcyBreeze is used worldwide by some of the largest organizations, including multiple branches of the US Armed Forces, Walt Disney World Resort, and Disneyland. The U.S. Open, Australian Open, Tennis Australia, The University of Oklahoma, University of Colorado, Tokyo 2020 Olympics, KISS, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Rascal Flatts, George Straight, and many more have purchased units to cool the biggest name athletes and live entertainment stars and performers.

Generational Equity Executive Managing Director of M&A – Central Region, Michael Goss, with the support of Vice President, M&A, Lance Thomasson, successfully worked to close the transaction. Senior Managing Director Doug Morrow established the original relationship with IcyBreeze.
“This transaction was the culmination of a vision and plan that we set out with John Brinkman to execute upon in August 2022, which led to the perfect pairing of Fire (Solo Stove) and Ice (IcyBreeze), two of the hottest, or coolest depending on which way you look at it, and most in-demand consumer products in the outdoor enthusiast space ever!” said Goss.
Goss added, “We are so excited to see IcyBreeze welcomed into the amazing and growing Solo Brands family and expect that this united force will continue to dominate U.S. and international markets into the future as they continue to expand and innovate their combined product portfolios.”
