About the Product
This cooler is all about extremes - from impact resistance and durability to long lasting ice retention. The RTIC can do double duty as a bench, nonslip step stool, tabletop and extra cutting board while keeping ice, perishables and vital supplies cold.
Our coolers are at home on the dock, at the ranch, in the blind, or on the boat, and the Tundra® 65 is no exception.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
YETI Tundra 65 Cooler
  • Heavy as hell, but super efficient. Keeps ice 3x longer than every other "normal" cooler.
  • This better be the last cooler I ever buy, because I can't afford another one. Haha
  • Expensive, yes ! This is not a cooler for everyone. If you've got bucks to burn and just like the cool factor that's fine but if you need a very rugged cooler that can hold ice forever then this is the cooler for you.
  • I own three Yeti coolers. Tho not cheap, they keep ice longer than any cooler I've ever owned.
  • Nice cooler. I work in plastics so when I got it I noticed there was a lot of flash on the parting line and lifter areas of the mold. For as much money as these things are i would expect a product that is free of molding defects.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
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.
YETI Tundra 65 Cooler
  • After researching for weeks comparable sized coolers, this is what I got. Ice retention for a weekend camping trip and general beverage cooler for parties are its main duties.
  • I'm not in love with Yeti's politics, but their coolers are excellent quality and this size fits my needs perfectly.
  • Very pleased with this fabulous cooler. The size is perfect.
  • This is a good size any bigger and it is hard to manage when full.
  • The cooler works great. Holds ice for days and is very durable. Perfect size as well.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
YETI Tundra 65 Cooler
  • The cooler is extremely well built with lots of cool features. We love it!
  • The light blue color is awesome. It’s sturdy and will keep ice for a while.
  • Love the features like the carrying handles, the slide inhibiting rubber stoppers on the corners and the basket for inside.
