We find this cooler very hard to open when trying to reach to the backseat. You really need two hands to open. Not a fan of the shape. The dimension makes it tall and you have to reach way down to find what you packed. It keeps everything cold though, just not an easy travel cooler.

Return Policy

The cooler is very nice. Bought for Christmas gift in October. Too large for my daughter so I ordered two smaller coolers for her to use from RTIC. Cannot return because ordered before Nov 1st. This was disappointing.

Terrific but a few things

I absolutely love this backpack cooler. I have had my blue/gray for over a year now and it has worked perfectly poolside, on the beach, at soccer games, camping, etc. I have only two...complaints? 1) I wish the waiststraps were detachable or could be stashed away. I'm not big on using them and they are massive with the padding. 2) Where is the accessory tote bag you guys always show attached to the backpack in the emails and gift guides?? I would really like to purchase it but I cannot find it anywhere on the website. Accessories? Nope. Soft Coolers section? Nope. Totes? Nope.

Packed It Out

I love this cooler! I bought it to bring meat to a remote island in Alaska. Kept my food frozen on the flights from the mainland to the island. I also used it to pack out my caribou kill! I blocked up the meat in the field, put it in the bag, tied the skull and cape on the outside, and packed it out about 2.5 miles. The pack survived about 100lbs of weight for the over 1.5 hours it took me to get to the truck. STURDY! I need another one for sure!! I have the pics to prove this pack has been on over 18 miles of scouting, hunting, and packing caribou in remote Alaska! I LOVE IT!

Back pack cooler

Love it. I have bought a few in the past and they all did not meet expectations. They ripped and water got in the insulation and just terrible. This here has so far been great.. Loving it!!!!

I bought this as a gift for my son. He has not received it. This was on his wish list. He stated that he would rather have this cooler brand than the other more expensive brand. He had read a lot of reviews on the RTIC coolers and added it to his Christmas wish list.

Christmas Gift

I bought this for my daughter in NC for Christmas because she and my grandson go to the beach quite often and she like to take drinks and lunch down one the beach. She is better off with back pack because she has RA and would be hard to carry by hand. Look like it is made very good.

Amazing Price and Great Size

I’ve had mine for almost 2 years. I use it for everything, from camping; boating, work, parties, etc. My only complaint would be the bottom has completely unwelded itself and rendering it useless. It started just after a year and now it’s completely fallen out. Warranty is only a year so I’ll have to buy another one. Sucks, but it is an awesome cooler. Wondering if $300 over 3 years worth of use is better than just paying a bit more for another brand that may last longer. It’s a toss up.

Long story short, the webbed water bottle pockets have both began ripping. I only ever put the small Ice Mountain water bottles in the pockets and they've already got holes in them. The pockets on this backpack are practically unusable, too small. The webbing on the underside of the lid is useless because everything falls out when you close the cooler lid, and falls down into the cooler. I had high hopes that this cooler would be a little more durable, but it's very delicate.
