I have been thinking about getting a cooler box as a means to put my photo gear in them. I have concerns about heat and was previously advised against putting anything in the car's trunk or glove box because of the heat. There are some large sized coolers that I am considering.

Is this a good idea? Another advantage is that it would look inconspicuous.

Never buy version 1.0 of anything.

Not such a bad idea but be certain to put a decent sized bag of silica gel in with it and make sure that it never gets moisture in it.  Moisture in sealed plastic can be a real mongrel on camera gear and glass fungus will flourish.  Even a cooler will warm up but at least it will make temperature changes gradual except when you are opening it.  DON'T put ice or ice packs in with your gear (duh) because of condensation and moisture.

..oh, and I see by the lack of responses that I am right yet again.
