What customers say about "Key Specs"
RTIC 45 Cooler
  • Great cooler. I was undecided between this and the Yeti. I ended up purchasing the RTIC.
  • The cooler is constructed well and is a great value for the price. I'm super happy with this purchase and plan on buying the next size up in the spring!
  • I bought this with the Igloo 20068 Wire Cooler Basket, it fits perfectly in th RTIC 45.
  • Great value as compared to name brand competitors. Took it on a weekend camping trip, 75% of the ice came home with us, very spacious and easy to maneuver with the built in handles.
  • Bought one of these for my son, big camper. He and everyone present went so nuts over this cooler that we bought another for my daughter, another camper.
RTIC 65 Cooler
  • Awesome cooler. Held 78 cans/bottles cobination for a recent party and stayed ice cold for 8 days after.
  • I've had this cooler for a couple of weeks now and it's held up amazing, keeping 20 lbs of ice for about 3 days, with a good bit of opening and closing.
  • Excellent... EXCELLENT cooler. I'd definitely recommend this product. I went camping in high 90's weather and after 3 days I still had the vast majority of the ice still frozen.
  • What a great cooler! Super-tough with thick insulation, a tight-seal gasket, simple latches and good handles.
  • As with all of these cooler, pre cooling it helps prevent initial ice melting and some water polling, but it’s not necessary.

RTIC 45 Cooler
  • I'm super happy with this purchase and plan on buying the next size up in the spring!
  • Perfect size to carry and keep what you need cold
  • Hoisting it up into and out of the truck every week could be a chore depending on your size. 2016 Mack Pinnacle, I am 6' 240. So no lightweight on my side. just saying.
  • Unfortunately I realized after receiving it that the next size up is available from a different seller for the exact same price.
  • Be aware, it doesn't hold as much as you might expect from the size as the walls are very thick.
RTIC 65 Cooler
  • Built like a tank! Keeps my ice frozen for a hell of a long time! Perfect size for my truck. Looks great!
  • For the money. good deal , ice last 5 days in the sun ,it is got some weight to it,40lbs of ice and a 30 pack of beer close to 100lbs
  • There are 3 different sizes one is a small 1 is a medium and 1 is a large and my husband got a large and he who loves a it holds food drinks and the ice says it can hold up to 9 days which is very cool where so that's what I like about it
  • Will be buying another in different size for day trips.

What customers say about "Features"
RTIC 45 Cooler
  • The lid stays open on mine, but the T handles fold down under the lid when you open it.
  • Lid seal works well, a little effort to open
  • The gasketed lid is impressive, yielding an airtight seal. The cooler is heavy and bulky, but it seems very sturdy and is obviously well insulated.
  • The lid doesn't always want to stay open. Somewhat annoying at first but I've gotten used to it.
  • The cooler had a bad gasket, the lid was tan the bottom half greenish gray
RTIC 65 Cooler
  • Can't go wrong with Rtic. Would buy again. Like the ability to lock it down, and lock closed. Held ice good on trip through the south west.
  • It is nearly a carbon-copy of the Yeti, holds ice longer, has a few design features that make it more usable and was much more affordable. I couldn't be more pleased.
  • Like the ability to lock it down, and lock closed. Held ice good on trip through the south west.
  • Left cooler in truck bed for a 3 day weekend in July. Partial sun exposure (85F) for a few hours for 3 days, yet the lid warped significantly.
  • Lid is terrible and often warps and is a joke to call it a freezer grade gasket.
