What is a Roto Molded cooler?

Roto molded coolers, or rotationally molded coolers, are made to keep ice cold for a very long time and keep your perishables protected from forest creatures. These high end coolers are constructed with what is known as rotationally molded plastic. The rotomolding procedure ensures that every part of the cooler is made with a continuous thick wall with no imperfections. Roto Molded Coolers can uphold to very high degree of abuse, including being handled roughly by grizzly bears.

Roto molded coolers are significantly more durable than an average cooler and are the best coolers for keeping ice. This ice retention feature lets you keep ice frozen to keep your drinks cold, but also keep fish or animal parts from spoiling on your fishing or hunting trip.

How Can you sell your coolers at a fraction of the price of the competition?

We are a direct to consumer retailer. By cutting out the big box retailers and using word of mouth & social media to promote our coolers versus paying for high priced ambassadors and commercials, we are able to offer high quality coolers that have all of the features our customers want - at a fraction of the price.

How can your cooler hold more ice?

Our coolers’ capacity and dimensions are actually bigger vs other coolers. The walls of the RTIC coolers are not thinner - we have made our coolers bigger to reflect the quarts they hold. For example the RTIC 65 actually holds 65 quarts - with RTIC, you are getting a bigger cooler.

Are your coolers a good quality?

Our coolers are some of the best on the market. They are manufactured utilizing one-piece seamless rotational molded construction. From the one-piece seamless construction to the ultra-thick insulation, this virtually indestructible rotational molded cooler has all of the features outdoorsmen want, plus the durability and ice retention they need.

How long will your coolers hold ice?

Our coolers can hold ice up to 10 days. Of course that doesn’t mean you can leave your cooler out in the Mojave Desert in 120 degree temperatures and open it every 30 minutes.

We use up to three inches of pressure-injected commercial-grade polyurethane foam in the walls and lid with an R-Value of 7 per inch of thickness, which is among the best insulation properties in the industry. We use closed-cell foams to stop air and moisture - and because of the foam’s density and glue-like tenacity, it also adds structural strength to the walls.

Do you offer a discount?

The coolers are priced as low as we can go! Our business model is to keep our pricing structure simple: offer the lowest price we can to everyone. We do offer case pricing on selected products.
