This true-to-size 52 quart model makes a perfect multi-purpose cooler. It can be carried by one person. The RTIC 52 can do double duty as a bench, non-slip step stool, tabletop and extra cutting board while keeping ice, perishables and vital supplies cold.

Outstanding Cooler!

This cooler is great to have for quick roadtrips or extended adventures. It keeps everything cool for days and includes the basket and icepack/divider. It's very sturdy and well built, but also light enough to carry myself.

Outstanding cooler

I purchased this cooler and immediately put it to use on a hunting trip. I used 30 lbs of crushed ice to store a deer for 5 days. When I returned home there was over half the cooler of ice on top of my deer. Unbelievable how great this cooler is. Highly recommended it to anyone needing an outstanding cooler. I just placed an order for my second one exactly like this one.

Awesome cooler for our family

We LOVE this cooler for our camping trips with our family. It holds ice much better than our previous cooler we were using and the included basket and partition make the cooler even more functional. On top of that, we go camping in some pretty remote and spartan places and our cooler has to be up to the task. This cooler has proven to be everything we hoped and more thus far.

Also a great anti-freezer

All the tests are about how long these coolers keep ice, but our recent test was camping at temps between 12-20°F. We used one side with blue ice to keep dairy and meat at safe temps and the other side had our water and other foods we wanted to keep for freezing. Our largest water bottle was only 36 oz; all sizes that would normally freeze quickly at our temps. 24 hours and everything was at the right temp, no freezing, peanut butter was completely spreadable, snacks all properly chewy.

does the job!

My brother-in-law has this cooler. It's awesome for parties or keeping brews cold outside. Keeps ice for a WHILE! Definitely a few days if not more.

Great Cooler

This cooler is large enough for long trips or a short run to the grocery store. It keeps cold for a long time. It is the right size and weight for all occasions. Well done RTIC.

Love this Cooler!

Just received this Cooler a few days ago and couldn't be happier! Great build quality, design and it's light but strong!

Another Great Cooler

Haven't had a chance to use it yet but it'll perfect as an in-between for the 20 and 110 we have already. It's exactly what I expected and as described on the website.
