Bought a twenty a couple of years back for my semi truck? Keeps ice for five days in the summer and drinks cold two days after all the ice has melted? Bought a 45 and I think the quality has gotten better if that's possible? Brother has one of those higher priced one named after a creature and he was surprised that my RTIC kept ice as well as his! I highly recommend all of my RTIC products from my coffee cups to my mugs!
Not only did it keep my elk meat frozen on the drive back from Idaho, it is also a great canvas for your sticker murals! The
This cooler is bomb proof. However the rope handle design is terrible. Everytime you go to pick it up you have to adjust the hand grips on the rope to get it to lift evenly. Whoever designed this clearly hasn't tried to pick a full one up and carry it.
Very happy and more than I expected Color match's my Sportsman boat perfectly Can't wait for summer
honestly the best cooler I have ever used and owned. Held two 5lb bags of ice for 4 days on my recent hunt. Worth every penny spent. I will buy more rtic products and I highly recommend them.
I held off for the longest time on buying cooler like this because of the outrageous prices. The prices are still outrageous but if you hunt or do sports with kids this cooler is a good one to have. A whitetail deer rear ham will lay down flat in this cooler. I’ve had ice left after 6 days off and on in upper 60 Alabama temps. It’s very durable as mine is already covered in red clay and scratches after one week.
I saw the RTIC 20 at Bucees while out riding my motorcycle strapped it on and took off. Great product take it fishing keeps my Ice cold all day. Love the RTIC products bought 3 sent to my kids out west. If this cooler is good enough for Buccee Beaver its just way to cool!
Ordered the Grey 65 Quart Hard Cooler because I needed a reliable cooler to help haul back beef and deer from my annual hunting trip in Iowa. I drive the beef and deer back to Texas where I live so as soon as I reach the Texas/Oklahoma border, the temperature changes dramatically. I have a number of the soft coolers which work great, but this is my first hard cooler. My issue is right upon arrival the box was very beat up. There was no insulation around the cooler inside the package, just a plastic bag. The cooler had obvious scratches on the outside that I’m assuming was from the lack of protection from shipping. I know it’s a cooler and it’s supposed to be used for the rough & tough, but I’d like to experience that for myself through my own usage of the cooler, not from getting beat up during shipping. I think the coolers should be shipped with more protection, especially for the price your paying for the coolers. I haven’t used the cooler yet so hopefully it does what the reviews and company says it does. So just like my title says.....WE’LL SEE!!!!
I haven’t used it as of yet. Plan on using this cooler on my seasonal camp site. It’s big enough to hold everything that we bring that needs cooling. That will sure mean less trips to the store for “essentials”.
Nice Cooler, very pleased
Great cooler, literally no different to the overpriced ones. Very pleased!!
The cooler is rugged, sturdy, well built an affordable. With a solid handle and it’s ability to keep things cold for days, what’s not to like? Great value, great cooler.
Love our 65 QT. Fits everything we need for a week's trip to the Gulf Coast and keeps it all cold on the way down and back. We have learned to buy extra bags of ice upon arrival and keep inside the cooler as back up during our stay, as our family has no regard for proper personal ice allocation. Our problem, not yours. Rugged as F and we love it. The divider comes in handy to separate items that don't need to mingle or simply can't get along, but comes out easily when everyone wants a cooler party. We love this cooler and accept the fact that it's heavy as a MF but appreciate that fact when we're standing it to practice casting into a headstrong wind of 20 mph in our local park prior to salt season. My redfish fans know what I'm talking about...
The 65 quart cooler is built like a tank. Only concern is that it is heavy and will take two people to move once full. First impressions are all positive.
Have not used yet. The quality seems very good. Bought two more for each of my sons. If ice lasts as long as they say I will be very happy
Had a shipping label created in 30 minutes after order was placed. Nice product and incredible service.
I was a little leery about paying $300 for a cooler, but now I’m thinking about my next RTIC purchase. I packed my new cooler for a long week at elk camp, and things (like my ice packs) are still frozen solid 9 days later! Pretty amazing!
We use ours when we are camping and it Does not hold ice nearly as well as I suspected. For the money I expected a better product.
Went on a 16 hour road trip with a cheapo old cooler. it barely made it, keeping ice. Got to my destination, and strangely forgot to bring the old one home. Ordered the 45 qt. as soon as i got home. Rock solid, great buy! Cant wait till next road trip, definitely wont forget to bring home the RTIC.
