to tell the truth you probably wont notice it. i have had my son in the back of my elite 4.5 (was approx 50kg at the time) and if he sat still you would hardly know he was there. just a bit of an issue if he leaned over the side (which a chill pod wont do :D ).

The icebox probably are not as good at keeping ice as a an esky but the benefit of making the most of the space and being able to accommodate decent sized fish

You will not notice the difference in weight at all.
