What customers say about "Key Specs"
RTIC Soft Pack 30
  • Lightweight, easy to transport with cushioned shoulder strap, 100% strong seal when closed, difficult to close with zipper
  • It is a great cooler and kept everything cold just like the reviews said it would, but it is way to expensive a cooler to only last one summer!
  • Perfect size cooler- keeps prechilled drinks cold all day.
  • Just to give you an idea of the pure roominess of this cooler, I have placed a decent sized bottle of Tide in it.
  • Perfect size cooler- keeps prechilled drinks cold all day.
RTIC Soft Pack 40
  • Awesome cooler. Plenty of space and holds ice well even though it’s black.
  • The size is perfect for us, but i must admit it's a little heavy when full, but it's fine. I really do recommend.
  • A 40 works great for half gallon Gatorade standing up. And 3 meals with 6 energy drinks and making ice!
  • This cooler is awesome! It is big and tall enough to fit 8-9 2-liter sodas/1.5L liquor bottles and 10 lbs of ice.
  • I am disappointed in the quality. I have several friends with the same cooler, and I think I just got one from a bad run.
  • Poor quality impression with glue on the top. Did not test it yet

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
RTIC Soft Pack 30
  • This cooler is very portable and works amazingly well at keeping things cold.
  • That’s fine, they offered to upgrade my size to get the grey-colored one but I like portability of this one.
  • Cooler is nice and light but the zippers suck.
  • Super thick insulation and light for a soft cooler.
  • I loved the size, the construction looked great and the weight was perfect.
RTIC Soft Pack 40
  • It's a little heavy when full, but it's fine. I really do recommend.
  • This is what i was expecting, the most practical, heavy duty soft pack there is.
  • Truly overbuilt and not over priced!
  • Like the size and this cooler's ability to keep everything cold.
  • It's also very light weight which offsets the weight of the contents.

What customers say about "Features"
RTIC Soft Pack 30
  • My only concern with this cooler is their zipper doesn’t seem very stout.
  • No leaks, no zipper complaints. It really seems well built, and comes with sturdy handles and a carry strap.
  • Waterproof zipper is a bit hard to open and close but I guess that is to be expected given that it is waterproof
  • The zipper was completely closed but to be honest we did open it from time to time during the trip to get food out.
  • Hard to zip; zipper is already starting to come a part.
RTIC Soft Pack 40
  • Excellent cooler . Has held up well to daily grind
  • Use for 72 hr overnight fishing trip to the canyon and bags holds items cold every time! Awesome products
  • This bag has exceeded my expectations. ITS HUGE.
  • My 40 is so good I can put warm water in it and it will make ice.
  • There is a problem with the zipper. It’s busted in the back right corner.
