T (38) and wife J (41), moms to son C (9/2009 - 2/2013), whom we lost to leukemia.
Our next little one is due at the end of October.
We used BioTranz. It's not just an icepack--it also contains a buffer that prolongs the sperm's life and allows it to be cooled safely. It was pricey, and it was definitely challenging when I ovulated on a Monday and we could only get an overnight shipment on Saturday. It didn't end up working out for us, but we know of people for whom it did.
If you're looking for a slightly cheaper option, I believe Northwest Cryobank sells a shipper that costs a little less, and also BioTranz has an "express" version with fewer accessories (which aren't so necessary anyway).
One bit of advice I will urge you to take is that if you use these, make sure your donor schedules a morning delivery. There was at least one time when our shipment rode around in the FedEx truck for the entire day--clearly not good.
I hope this helps! Good luck!
