I'm so disappointed in my Day Cooler by RTIC. Just after the one-year warranty period, the zipper broke. Tried contacting RTIC customer service by email, and customer service never responded. Also, comparing this product to similar products, it's actually roughly the same as any soft-sided cooler from Walmart.
I tried three different ice packs and they all melted within 4 hours. They are the same ice packs that I use in my Coleman soft-sided cooler and they stay solid for at least 8 hours. I'm very disappointed in the quality of this cooler. Plus, no returns if you've used it.
Bought 2 of these "coolers" as gifts. First use, and the cooler leaked out all the ice in the back of our car. Contacted customer service and they stated these coolers are not made ro use with ice only ice packs. I pointed out that the description states you CAN use with their ice packs but doesnt say its the only method of cooling. They refused to refund me. Not pleased with their customer service or product on this one, and ive bought hundreds of dollars worth of product through them previously. Dissappointed to say the least. Thanks for the overpriced lunch box.
I bought a couple of the day coolers. Good coolers but the main zipper doesn't operate smoothly. I think this is due to its location. Instead of at the very top, it could be about an inch down. It gets in a bind around the corners where it is currently located.
Don’t buy the day cooler absolutely garbage! Have a lot of there products but the zipper is ripping away where it was stitched and it’s only 4 months old! Called customer care and got told sorry it only has a 90 day warranty! Don’t buy the day cooler!
I have the Day Cooler, bought it to carry to work for my lunch. Great size and holds diff size containers, But it does Not keep my food cold at all. Maybe 1-2 hours the most
The product itself is great, there are no bones about it. My only issue is that it says RIGHT ON THE BOX what it is, and where its from. You'd think that during Christmas that their packaging would be a little more discrete. I bought the 28 Can Day Cooler for my husband as a gift for Christmas, and he found the box yesterday on the front porch and knew exactly what i had gotten him. It sucks that theres now no element of surprise for one part of his gifts this year.
I’ve purchased a number of coolers from RTIC and they are made with superior quality workmanship. I prefer RTIC over all other competitors. The shipping speed is out of this world! I literally place an order and within MINUTES it’s marked shipped and ready to go! Keep up the great work!! You guys rock!!
Great to pair with the ice packs, I work in FL in the 90 degree heat and this box keeps my lunch and snacks cold all day locked in the truck hitting really high temps. I wish the front pocket was a double zipper, other than that this is a great day cooler!
We have 3 now! Love them. Great for day trips to hold drinks and snacks and saves money from stopping at tote sums to get drinks. Perfect for sitting on porch drinking
Just bought my 3rd one. Great product and I like that you guys finally made ice packs for these coolers.
Was a bit skeptical when I got this. Insulation felt thin? Like my crappy Coleman it was replacing. I was wrong. I pre chilled the cooler with blue ice pack. Placed 3 Gatorade, 3 Coffe drinks, and filled up with ice 530am. Yes the ice melted, but not all of it. By noon it was still very cold, but maybe 1/3 water. By the next morning I still had alot of ice left. Outside temps 100 degrees. Pick up truck in cab of blacktop parking lot. My Chevy cab gets really hot too. I also have a 20 and 45. The 20 did way better, but for a lunch cooler this thing works great.
Like the cooler but not big enough to care all the stuff I need in my day of work make one with more storage I’ll buy it
Love my day coolers! Keep things cold all day! I wish there was a size in between the 8 and 28 though. 8 is sometimes too small for my lunch, and the 28 is too big! But I still love them!
I purchased a day cooler 8 from bucees on the way past Dallas-Fort Worth. I'm very pleased with it, at first I was worried about the zipper I didn't think it was going to hold up, but it proved me wrong. I purchased it Feb and I use it for work, 12 hour shifts. I have plenty of room to pack a whole day's worth of meals. Mine stays indoors so I have yet to test it outside for anything.
I have bought 4 different coolers, they are always much bigger , than described, they are big bulky, and the inside is not a good size. I feel like I’m carrying a suit case, I wanted to return them as soon as I got them, but after paying shipping it’s not worth it, I wanted a reg. Size lunch bag, that will keep my lunch cold, I been very happy!
This is a handy size to fit behind my kayak seat. Like the front pocket and netting on sides to hold things. Needs better zippers
I am a BIG RTIC fan ! I have the this cooler for work and it keeps everything cold or hot depending what I bring for lunch . Great price I will highly recommend to anyone who brings there lunch everyday.
I believe the description should be a little more clear. I bought this thinking this would be a really nice cooler. This is not waterproof and on hot days this product will not keep your stuff cold. I got really excited for it and now I am disappointed. It only keeps my stuff cold for a half day and leaks water everywhere in my car.
Got the 8 can lunch cooler in dark blue. An excellent purchase. Perfect size for packing a lunch for work. Easy to carry plus has 2 side pockets for water bottles and a front zipped pocket for snacks. Inside is lined with a vinyl liner but it isn't waterproof but you can put a sealed ice pack or bag of ice to keep stuff cold. Stuff says cool without the ice anyway. Highly recommended.
My husband just bought me the purple size 8 cooler. The first time I used it (six cans and some ice) it leaked through the bottom in 2 corners and around the top by the zipper pouch. Is this normal? I'm very disappointed about it. We also have a very large hard sided cooler which is great (a little heavy but holds ice well)
GREAT COOLER STAYS COLD.
I have a black and a pink 8 can lunch cooler, and I love them. The pink one goes on trips to the beach or road trips and keeps my drinks chilled most of the day. They are not water proof so i put my ice into ziplock bags so when it melts it does not leak out.
I use mine for my nursing lunch box. I want the bigger one to hold more. I bought the 8 can to take to the lake.
My husband uses this daily. It's a huge lunchbox which is great.
A little disappointed to find out nearly nOn of the RTIC brand cups/ bottles/ thermos/ coffee cups fit with this lunch box. Seems like a fairly major design flaw that their own products don’t work with this product.
Order just arrived, I will update this review as I get to actually use the item. Only giving 4 stars for now due to appearance. Actual item is a darker blue than pictured and it does not match the other RTIC brand light blue items. Actual color is more of a teal than the pictured “Carolina blue”. Otherwise our family has so far loved every rtic item we own.
I love this little cooler! I was a little worried when it first came because of how thin the walls are but man it works, it will hold a 6 pack with ice no problem and the front pocket is super handy for putting silverware or snacks, I use this cooler more then any of my other RTICS. And it’s so affordable too!
The light blue looks like a bright blue, but it was slate blue. A little disappointed.
