Excellent Cooler

by
I LOVE this cooler and use it every day. We also have the 28 can cooler which holds a ton. By far the best coolers we’ve ever owned. Will definitely buy more!

First Time RTIC buyer

by
I love this cooler. I searched and searched and read so many reviews. After seeing an ad for RTIC on my social feed, I decided to take a look and found this beauty. Read some more reviews on this site and thought it would be a great purchase. Once I received the bag, I was so over joyed. The cooler is insulated with thick insulation, has a top zipper opening, multiple areas for dry storage, and thick pads for shoulder carry. 2 water bottle holders are also very convenient. Cons: Though I will be purchasing another, keep this in mind: the opening to the cooler is rather small. It's approx 9 inches wide, so sliding a meal prep container, I have to turn it sideways or long ways to fit in the bottom. The zipper pouches on both side of the bag by the mesh bottle holders, do not hold much. They are basically flat and will not hold much. I do love this cooler and I'll be taking it on a Carnival Cruise next week!

Perfect Cooler

by
I am a Mail Carrier this is the only cooler I have found that will keep my drinks cold all day!! I use 2 of the med ice packs one in the bottom and one on top it works great!! I highly recommend this cooler if you work outside. Thanks Rtic
|

Use this everyday

by
I love this little cooler. I use it everyday to take lunch to work. I have had it for over a year and it is still in great shape. You should add mesh pocket to the lid or the side to hold a small to Med size ice pack

28 Can Day Cooler is LIFE

by
I have had the 28 can day cooler for about a year now, and I'm back to buy another one so my husband will have his own to take for work! I work in the field, so my cooler holds ice packs, several meals' worth of food, and a couple of 32 oz water bottles. It stays cool all day, but will warm up a little on top if it's left in the high mountain sun. That doesn't bother me because it will even stay cool in the hot truck during the summer (so long as it's not sitting in the sun in the truck). I love the pocket on the front so that I can leave napkins, silverware, back up protein shake packets, and any other essentials in there all the time. I love the size for long days, but it's also perfect to take on long car rides, etc. I use this cooler pretty much every single day, working or just out playing! I ordered myself a bright purple color, which has kept my hubs from stealing it! Thanks for a great, well priced product!!!

Bought many more

by
I bought one of these for myself in June to use taking frozen foods, packed with dry ice, and flown across country. Because of the superlative results I bought two more for my daughters. They have reported back that they are able to pack several nights food into the cooler and it KEEP THINGS COLD! Both are physicians and often carry their own food, since they don't know when they'll get a meal break, or how long it will last! Besides those 3, I've also bought 6 more for Christmas gifts. You can't go wrong with any RTIC products!

Best soft sided cooler ever! Super easy to carry and the outside pockets are great for phone, keys, etc.
|

Great Product

by
Great product, awesome cooler for work . Looks like it’s made very well , I wish it had a water bottle holder . Other then that I will be a customer for life .
|

works great

by
I ordered two of these coolers and am pleased so far with how well they work. The first thing I noticed when they arrived was the insulation is thicker and more substantial than any other day cooler I have owned in the past. The cooler also seems put together well and the shoulder strap is nice. I used this cooler for about 15 hours in temps around 75-85 and was impressed that the ice packs were still about 80% frozen and the remaining drinks were still cold. So far I am pleased with this purchase and how well the coolers work.
|

great for air travel!

by
I’ve had a RTIC soft sided 20 for a few years. I have used it to carry frozen tamales and steaks to friends and family not lucky enough to live in Texas. It’s a great cooler, but when I saw the less bulky back pack I AND IT WAS ON SALE (Cheap Colonel) I decided to give my back a break! Last night put 4# dry ice and 6 steaks in it. Still completely frozen upon arrival at airport 18 hr later. Very easy to pack and carry!
|

awsome day cooler

by
This back pack is awsome it keeps about 9 bottle waters cold all day with just little ice. Came home 8 hrs later to still find ice and cold warter. Very pleased over all planning on buying the bigger one now
|

Looking

by
I am a kayak Adventure. Really looking for something that's somewhat compact, that will fit in my dry hatch. That has extra pockets. Be great if you could make a day cooler into a waterproof cooler at the same size.
|

LOVE IT

by
My kids play lots of sports and we always pack a BIG cooler that goes in the back of our truck so I bought this to take up to the fields with me and it's PERFECT! We are at the ball fields for 14 hours some days like we were this past weekend and it keep my drinks cold ALL DAY! Was very impressed and so excited about this cooler!
|

New Jobsite Cooler

by
I am a contractor in FL and this cooler has become a necessity for keeping water close by and COLD. And the medium cold packs are a perfect fit, and actually work all day...
|

Great Backpack

by
I work at a shipyard and it keeps my stuff cold during my entire shift , I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good lunchbox.
|

Backpacks are Cool

by
Bought this for work, I work 10 hour shifts so i needed something that could hold a decent amount of grub! This does the job! Keeps my lunches/dinners/beverages cold. love everything about it, if there was one thing I would improve tho is make the netting on the sides just a bit taller, I bought the RTIC 26 water bottle to go with this and it fits, but would be a little more secure if the netting was a bit taller.
|

5 Stars

by
Been using this backpack all summer. I us if for lunches or our weekend trips to the beach. Can’t beat the price and performance of this bag. I highly recommend it.
|

best cooler made

by
We have many RTIC products that perform well and we love but my wife just bought me a backpack cooler to use for my daughters softball tournaments and let me tell you. Theis this thing is awsome. Lots of pockets for snack or whatever and coller part is perfect for drinks and snack. RTIC makes the best stuff on the market. Keep killing it guys your making great products that are affordable
|

Awesome

by
This is by FAR the best cooler I’ve ever owned. I bought another one for my husband for Father’s Day as he loves mine, but, the hot pink isn’t his color!!!! GREAT PRODUCT!
|

Smaller than expected

by
Very nice, well built little cooler/lunchbox. I was expecting it to fit 8 cans in one layer standing upright (4x2).. but it only fits 6 (3x2).. the other 2 cans have to be laying on their side either on top of, or underneath those 6. Does fit as many as they say, just not how I was expecting. Wish they had pictures of the coolers loaded. Still a great product!
|

Great cooler

by
I've used several coolers at work trying to find the right balance between size and effectiveness. This does the job perfectly. Love the front zipper pouch and the mesh side ones. And I even love the color! The only problem is keeping coworkers mitts off it...
|

Awesome customer service

by
There was an issue with my order during shipment. Neither shipping company was helpful so I contacted RTIC customer support to ask if they could help me. They responded quickly and were willing to refund/reship my items. The missing order was eventually found but I will forever recommend RTIC simply because Ashlee with customer service was quick to respond and willing to help! Great customer service and great products.
|

Worth it!

by
I will never use any other cooler. It is perfect for lunch everyday, day trips, work! It is a little big but it is nice not having to cram things into it because you have all this extra space! I love the front pouch and the side pouches, makes for being able to store things you want to keep in your lunch box. Definitely keeps things cold all day! Worth it.
|

Wonderful!

by
I bought a few of these in two different sizes for Christmas gifts. They're great! Just what you need for short trips. Keeps my drinks and snacks cool. And I love the colors!
|

Worth the money

by

Awesome Product

by
I received the back pack cooler about 2 weeks ago and have used it twice. It looks great!! Very sturdy and well made. It Keep my adult beverages cold. Would have been colder if I would have put an ice pack in with it. A lot easier to carry then a shoulder strap cooler. Overall VERY satisfied with product.
|

Nice cooler

by
Just got the 15 day cooler to add to my collection of RTIC. The 15 day cooler has be great so far.
|

I CANT BELIEVE ITS NOT BUTTER

by
Yea you read that right. The absolute best Cooler/Backpack I have ever purchased hands down! It fits my needs when I’m out on a hike and keeps beverages cool all day long! The hype about RTIC is real and they live up to their motto, “Over Built, Not Over Priced.” 10/10 would recommend to all my fellow outdoor seekers!
|

Awesome

by
Just got mine delivered today and I am super impressed! I can't say anything about how it keeps things cold, but the overall looks and design is awesome.
|

He loves it

by
Bought this 28 for my husband to take on the boat. It is easier than trying to use a typical hard side cooler. Keeps the beer nice and cold.
|

It is perfect

by
Bought this for work. My food and drinks fit nicely in it. The extra pocket eliminates the need to carry my purse as well. I am able to fit my wallet, keys, mints and or gum in it.
|

Great For a Carryaoll

by
My purpose for this cooler was a little different. I was searching for a carry all bag for my Dad to take to his dialysis treatments 3X a week. After searching for quite awhile, this item came to fore and perfectly fit the bill. It has room for his blanket, IPad, snacks, and other items he may need during his 4 hour appointments. The carry handle is convenient and the shoulder strap is perfect to hang over his armrest side table. The mesh side pockets are handy for quick retrieval items. Other carriers I viewed were either too big or small (or were flowery fabric) He absolutely loves it.
|

Love It!!!

by
It is the perfect size. We love the rtic coolers!! This is a great addition for our fishing trips. I can sit it in a sit and not worry about it being in the way. So easy to carry. No fussing with full hands.
|

Keeps my lunch cold, needs a longer strap

by
Bought this cooler a few months ago with a crazy good sale. The front pocket is good for carrying an extra pen, note pad, aspirin and utensils ect. The side pockets are nice for my coffee cup when hands are full. The strap is ok I guess. Since I'm a bigger guy I just like the shoulder strap to be longer, maybe about 6-12 inches. But that me. All in all I do like this cooler and recommend RTIC to anyone and everyone. Just a longer strap.
|

AMAZING

by
I love this pack keeps everything cold for hrs. At the end of the day put it back in the freezer n use it again the next day!
|

Awesome

by
This cooler is awesome. We have one and just bought another. Also gave 4 as Christmas gifts. Everyone loves them!! Perfect size for sports. Keeps everything cold and is easy to carry as a backpack. My SIL loves it for hunting. He had it at the hospital when our first grandson was born. Highly recommend!
|

|

love this little cooler!!

by
i use this little cooler for everything. i recently took it with me as a carry on to Costa Rica! its the perfect size for a side by side adventure to beach. kept the beers cold even after the ice had melted.
|

lunch bags

by
I bought two of the lunch bags. They are insulated and keep your lunch cool if not refrigerated and if refrigerated it’s cold. I love them. They’re very durable also.
|

Great backpack

by
I have become a big fan of Rtic...I have bought almost everything they have to offer..This backpack is great..My kids play Soccer and now it looks like my wife has just commandeered this backpack so I’m going to have to buy another one for my work..No worries anyone who buys one will soon find themselves being asked were can I get one ...Great work .the water bottles work very well also...
|

Love it

by
Super fast shipping ordered this on Wednesday and got it Friday. Packed very well. I took it to work with me with drinks for my shift it kept my drinks and ice packs very cold and I work in a hot factory. Plenty of room for drinks, the front pocket has alot of room and the side pockets do as well. I highly recommend this and will be buying other products from rtic
|

Great size

by
This is a great size and holds a lot. We also have the Soft Pack cooler and it is awesome - leak proof. I was a little disappointed when I found out the Day Cooler is not leak proof. Make sure to use ice packs instead of ice.
|

Best purchase

by
I got this item as a gift for my husband for his work lunch bag, he came home bragging that everyone at work liked it and wanted to get one , this item keeps his food fresh untill lunch time , highly recommended if you're in the plant life!
|

SOOOOOOOO COOL!

by
This day cooler is the best cooler ever. We filled it with beverages and ice and took it to a party. The cooler sat in the back of our SUV with the top unzipped for well over 24 hours. When I finally went to empty it, there was still a huge chunk of ice and beverages were still cold. I purchased one for everyone in my family. Thank you RTIC for building such quality coolers for an affordable price.
|

Well built for the price

by
I have purchased 3 of these. The front pocket on the orange and blue ones have a fold out can sized drink holder. The camo one is just a pocket (which my husband prefers). Over all construction is much heavier than it appears in the pictures. This is a great ballpark personal cooler and it is well worth the less than $30 price tag. It is a great combination of light, designed well, built well and priced well. This is my cooler of choice 🙂
|

Perfect Lunch Size

by
I purchased this little 6-can cooler in purple. It is the perfect lunch size for me. I like the heavy construction and it's well insulated. The shoulder strap is comfortable and I really like the lack of mesh pockets on the outside of this one. As with my other RTIC coolers, it was well worth the price.
|

quality back pack cooler.

by
Just came today. checked it in side and out. can't get over how well this is built. great product for the money. can't wait to take it hiking.

Perfect for 16 oz. cans of craft beer

by
I bought the 28 can day cooler and my cans fit perfect. I was able to fit about ten 16 oz cans with plenty of room left for ice.
|

Perfect cooler for 16 oz cans

by
I bought this cooler today from the store. It’s perfect for 16 oz cans.
|

Awesome lunch bag

by
I bought this lunch bag for my husband. He loved it. Will buy one for myself next.
|

Great for toting lunch

by
I bought these to take all day food to work. I keep my lunch and all snacks cool all the way to work. Keeps food cool for hours until I can get to the fridge. Large size is great for my meal containers.
|

Great for lunches

by
Kids can take it to school. I take mine to work. Holds eight cans easy with ice. Also fits taller slim cans no problem. One ice pack helps keep cold food cold for hours. I love this brand, it’s half the price of others and holds up use after use.
|

Lightning fast shipping

by
Well I ordered this on Monday and it was on my doorstep when I got home from work on Tuesday. I love the color and the size is perfect for my lunch! I have purchased an orange one for my Son as well. You guys are great, your products are great. I couldn't be more pleased!
|

6 Can Day Cooler

by
Love it! Got this for Christmas. Love this cooler! Durable and well insulated. Compact and light, sturdy and looks great. Inside liner is thick and waterproof so won't tear or leak. Great for lunches or trips. Keeps cold all day!!!
|

Zipper

by
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.
|

Love it

by
I use this bag for work and absolutely love it!! I also own probably over 20 RTIC cups and bottles and love them too. I would use another company’s product, there is no point with the quality and awesome colors RTIC has to offer.
|

Love

by
Absolutely love this cooler! One ice pack keeps everything COLD all day long and it's big enough to fit everything I need. I use it as my lunch bag/ milk storage bag (new mom back to work full-time). It's also great because I can keep my phone, keys, work badge, chapstick and other things in the outer pockets. It's made my life much easier, it's the best gift I've ever received
|

Love this bag!

by
I bought this bag to keep a couple of my son’s bottles in for when we are out. I love that I don’t have to worry about ice packs now since this has built in ice packs. I also don’t have to worry about my daughter accidentally throwing ice packs away at school. This keeps everything cool and is great when you don’t want to carry a big cooler.
|

Great for work but.....

by
This is a great little cooler for my lunch for work. Keeps everything I put in cold. The shoulder strap is short for me and the bag keeps sliding off me shoulder. But I can either swap out the strap or make a new one.
|

6 Can cooler

by
The outside dimensions listed for this lunch cooler are significantly higher than the inside dimensions. This may be big enough for a child’s school lunch if an ice pack is used, but certainly not big enough for an adult’s lunch. It appears to be of good quality, but it is quite small. I can’t speak to how well it keeps contents cold because we haven’t been able to use it. We will be ordering a larger size. Unfortunately the cost of returning the cooler is nearly $12, and we only paid $13 so it’s hardly worth the effort to return.
|

Nice backpack

by
I use this backpack on a regular basis. I'm able to store my drinks, ice packs and snacks in it. I am very pleased with my purchase.
|

by
Great product. Great for lunches and keeping a drink cool.
|

Awesome!

by
We had a back pack cooler years ago (not Rtic) that we loved! Eventually it started leaking. We’ve been on the hunt for a replacement and others have leaked from the start. So far this one is a winner, and even better than the 1st back pack cooler we liked! Holds ice for a looong time, and no leaking! I’ll likely buy more once they are (hopefully) back in stock. And I paid $20 for it. What a steal!!!
|

Nice travel cooler

by
We use this weekly when we go to a certain restaurant and want to carry a bottle of wine. Works great and pocket holds a few accessories like a cork screw or soft coozies.
|

Backpack

by
Works great, I absolutely love it. Bought 1 for a gift and 1 for myself, tried getting more but they must be a hot commodity
|

Great

by
I ordered this yesterday at 3 pm and it was at my house at 4 pm today. Super fast shipping, great products. I only buy RTIC products
|

15 can cooler

by
I use this cooler as a lunch bag. Works great. Large enough to put a dish or two in there along with an ice pack. The best lunch bag I've ever had. My only complaint is I wish the front pouch had two zippers like the top does so when you open it up everything doesn't fall out.
|

Paramedic

by
Great lunch bag. I meal prep plus healthy snacks and it’s able to store everything and keep cool!
|

Great cooler; Minor issues

by
Very fast shipping! I just received this so I have not had the opportunity to use it yet. RTIC is a brand I trust, so I have no worries about function. The only complaint I have is that the purple is not nearly as vibrant as the photo; it's more pastel. We also found a couple of stitching issues that are more of an aesthetic issue; they should not effect the function. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could.
|

Order

by
When will these be back in stock???
|

Awesome!!

by
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!!
|

Good but not as expected

by
I got this for when I travel to keep my drinks cold. I must drink 2lt a day so I take my drinks often. I thought this would have kept a baggie of ice longer with already cold items and a gel ice pack on the bottom. Things stayed cold but was disappointed in the ice not lasting very long. Not any different than any other similar items IMO.
|

Good Cooler

by
This is a great little cooler. I use this to walk around while I keep a large cooler in the truck. It is light weight and hold ice well for a day cooler. 4 stars because the front zipper is hard to open and there was some loose threads when I received it.
|

Logo

by
I love RTIC products. I have a few cups I love. I just recently ordered the day cooler in black for an every day work bag. I like it, however the logo is totally crooked on the front. Good quality just a little disappointed about looks.
|

Excellent

by
I purchased the size 15 Day Cooler and the medium sized Ice blocks. This little cooler is the perfect size and well built, sure to last a very long time! It's not mentioned anywhere, but the medium ice block slips perfectly into the front zipper compartment! Very nice perk!
|

Leaking melted ice

by
Love the compact size of a backpack. However, the ice melts and leaks through the lining and out the bottom. I have the larger RTIC backpack cooler, it is made with a different lining. It’s so much better. I wish it was made with the same material. So, I can ice down all my beverages in the smaller backpack.
|

Love this bag

by
Bought the 15 can bag for lunch bag. It’s big and roomy. Keeps my food cold. I love it
|

perfect lunch box

by
I bought this because my old lunch box didn't keep my food chilled and also had an odor I couldn't get out of if. I was kind of skeptical buying this, I was leaning towards the soft pak 20, but didn't want to spend that much on a simple lunch box. I got this thing Friday, and ordered the small ice paks with it. I froze the packs and added beer and ice to this cooler just to see if it could stand up to the 24 hr. claim on Saturday morning. I let it sit in the garage until Sunday afternoon and went to check it. To my surprise there was still plenty of ice, clod beer, and the freeze paks were still frozen. So, after 30+ hours in a hot garage, this little box kept cool. Next is a soft pak 30 for the beach!!
|

15 can perfect!

by
The 15 can soft side is similar in outside dimensions to the 8 can soft pack. The inside is where you gain the volume. I wanted something a little lighter to use as a lunch box and would also fit my 6 cup rectangle pyrex dish flat rather than on an angle. This is perfect! I can put an ice pack flat on the bottom, set my dish on it and have plenty of room for drinks, etc. above.
|

awesome cooler

by
i ordered 3 if these and not only is this cooler well constructed, and durable they came in just 1 day with free shipping.awesome products!
|

8 can cooler

by
These are amazing!My husband works 10 shifts and the ice pack is still frozen by the time he gets home.Well worth the money.Love our RTIC cooler!!
|

Works great

by
I use this cooler for my lunch box for work. With the blue freezer pack I purchased it works great. Keeps my food cold for the entire day
|

More space than stated

by
I hesitated to order because of the dimensions given on the product info. Width was a concern for the containers we use for leftovers- Rubbermaid square things that are about 6.5” across. I gave it a shot with fingers crossed, and it fits no problem. Interior width is closer to 6.5” relaxed, and there’s plenty of flexibility. It’s well put together and I’m looking forward to using it.
|

Not leak proof

by
Great cooler....but it is NOT leak proof.......
|

Near perfect !

by
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!
|

Walters

by
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
|

Suggestion 2

by
A stiff plastic lift-out would facilitate daily cleaning
|

Just what I expected

by
Great size for packing snacks, lunch, or just some cans to keep cold. Mine will hold 8 cans and I can put an ice pack, or just ice in to keep everything..... well, icy. Last time I had eight cans and about 24oz of ice. Kept the cans icy cold for at leat 18 hours.
|

cup holder blow

by
Thee cup holder on the back pack will not hold an RTIC cup!!!! You have got to be kidding me!!! Other than that its okay. I have several cups and can't use it.
|

These bags are great.

by
Just bought my 3rd one. Great product and I like that you guys finally made ice packs for these coolers.
|

Day cooler 8 amazing

by
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.
|

Good cooler

by
Nice cooler I have the 8 can bought this so I can take lunch in reheatable containers to work, but a little bigger than needed a 12-15 can would be perfect for nurses like me
|

in stock

by
I love this 6 can cooler. I bought one in pink and I would love to buy another one. When are they coming back in stock>
|

by
Good
|

Ok

by
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
|

8 and 28 can

by
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!
|

Day Cooler 8

by
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.
|

Great and HUGE

by
i got this cooler the other day and it is HUGE. i am able to store a lot of stuff in there and keep it cold all day long. i am able to keep several bottles of water with ice packs and some snacks
|

Handy

by
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
|

Coolers

by
Amazing coolers we have the 65, went camping weather was 90 degrees and only bought 2-22lb bags of ice for a 10 day camping trip. Also have the day coolers they work great for kayaking, definitely recommend to anyone.
|

Awesome Cooler!

by
Saw some coworkers had this cooler and had to buy one when I saw how amazing the price was! Incredibly pleased with the quality and shocked it was able to keep ice from melting for several hours in 100°
|

Great Cooler

by
I’ve been on the hunt for a cooler I can take to work and the pool- this does the trick! Easily fits six cans of whatever beverage you choose. Keeps cold (I use ice packs vs ice) all day. My only concern is that I wish the interior space was a little (just a tad) bigger. For some lunch items I have to play a game of Tetris to fit everything I need for the day. One perk of the bag I was not expecting was the front zipper compartment. I am able to put my keys, phone, charger, work ID in it so I don’t have to bring an additional bag with me. I’m going to purchase the biggest size for work just to accomadate what I need for the day so this Rose colored beauty will be my go to for the pool or beach.

Amazing Product!!!

by
Got this day cooler for work, and it's amazing!!! Keeps lunch cold for several hours. Very happy with RTIC products.
|

Great lunch cooler

by
I use it every day for work. I tried several lunch box/coolers this is by far the best.
|

Best lunch box !

by
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.
|

Not what I expected

by
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.
|

Great Lunch Cooler

by
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.
|

size 8 cooler

by
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)
|

Pretty good

by
I have had this for over a month. It does well keeping things cool, looks and feels great. If you use it outside it won't hold ice or ice packs past 5-6 hours. Otherwise it's awesome.

Lunch cooler

by
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.
|

Best lunch cooler ever!

by
Had this cooler for about 2 months now and absolutely love it. I pack breakfast, lunch and snacks and it keeps it cold all day. I use just one ice pack everything fits great. The front pocket and side nettings are great as well for extra storage. Would highly recommend!
|

Perfect for work!

by
My husband bought me the size 8 in hot pink and I love it!! The size is perfect for work. I throw in an ice pack and it keeps my protein shake super cold all day. I love it so much I ordered my husband one in black.
|

6 can

by
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.
|

Love it

by
Love them. I have 2 of these and have bought both my daughter's and son-n-law one we use them for lunch or just water bottles, sodas, just whatever. Plenty big for ice packs and products.
|

love it

by
My husband uses this daily. It's a huge lunchbox which is great.
|

Blk day cooler

by
Lowered the star rating. Mesh banding poor quality. Wish construction was higher grade material for pockets. Mesh banding tore apart within first mo of purchase
|

Cooler leaks

by
The cooler is really cute and holds a great amount of stuff BUT if you use ice, the cooler leaks from the top really badly.
|

Great cooler

by
I work construction and it is outside all day keeps my drinks and food cold all day with just one gel ice pack and a little bit of ice best lunch cooler I have ever owned
|

Great Product!

by
Would like to see a 12 can day cooler please. Thanks in advance.
|

FAST Delivery!

by
When they say your order ships today - they really mean it! I ordered two lunch coolers May 2nd at 5:20pm. When I got home May 3rd at 5pm, they were on my doorstep - amazingly fast!! Can't wait to put these to use!
|

Awesome little cooler & outstanding shipping

by
I placed the order on Fri, and received my coolers by Tuesday. WOW, great shipping & shipping was FREE!!! I have used this little cooler for only one day, which it's not enough to give it a fair review. However,from what I can see, this cooler is well made, and seems durable, not your typical soft cooler, that is for sure! As I use this cooler, I will come back and give up an update review.
|

Great Cooler

by
Bought this to bring my lunch to work for the week. Perfect sized cooler, keeps items cold, sturdy, well-made. Great product RTIC!!
|

Works good for railroad workers

by
I use this to keep my lunch cold while operating locomotives and after a 9 hour run, ice packs are still cold! I use 2 of the Cooler Shock lunch bag size ice packs and it's like they were made for this cooler. They fit either standing up, or lying down in the cooler perfectly. Very satisfied. Probably going to buy a 2nd one.
|

can cooler

by
What a fantastic little cooler! It's amazing how long the ice lasts in this. I also double this up as my lunch cooler, the side pocket in the front holds an ice pack perfectly and my food stays cold all day long. Buying another one!
|

Side pocket issue 8 can cooler

by
Purchased cooler last December 2017 in blk. The only defect are the mesh side pockets. Elastic banding ripped within first mo. Wish side pockets were made w/stronger materials.
|

Great lunchbox

by
I’ve been using mine for 5 months while driving a truck. My drinks and lunch stay cold all day with 2 ice packs. This a great product at a very fair price.
|

Best ever!

by
The best brand cooler I have ever bought. I highly recommend!

You'll Never Be Disappointed

by
I recently bought RTIC's new black lunch day cooler for my daily work lunches. I love that I can fit my 20oz RTIC tumblers standing up, the 30 oz tumblers and the new 25oz food canisters laying flat, and they all fit perfectly without squishing my food. Along with a cooler pack, when I get home after 10-12 hours anything that is left in the cooler is still as cold as it was when I put it in there. My teenage daughter has the light blue one now (we couldn't pass up the $20 sale on them) and uses it at school daily now too. If you're like us, and use your RTIC products daily, you'll realize quickly that everything they make is great and you'll never be disappointed!
|

Awesome

by
I'm using it as a lunch box for work, it is absolutely amazing and keeps everything nice and cold
|

Mesh pockets rip easily

by
So excited to see an Artic food bag product. I commute four times a month for 3 day trips in the aviation industry. Disappointed with the mesh pockets thus far. Seams ripped after three weeks. I was hoping this would have lasted a little longer. Will now have to purchase an aero coast food bag.
|

Decent lunch box

by
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.
|

Good lunch box

by
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.
|

Base Groomsmen Gift

by
Bought this to create my groomsmen gifts, added the 1/2 gallon jug to go with it, and added other stuff to go with it. Both are quality products, even bought them for myself.
|

Great cooler

by
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!
|

Great little cooler

by
This little cooler is amazing but let me break it down the pros and cons. So here are the Pros: First the feel and look is top line. The cooler feels solid and sturdy even as a soft case. Also being someone that is 6'3'' the shoulder strap is removable which is great because some coolers don’t give you this option. The handle and zippers feel solid and don’t feel like they will break at the slightest tug. As for the look it’s a great looking cooler (even with mine being just black). Also having 2 side pockets helps with carrying things that you don’t need to keep cool or hot. The main Pro with this cooler is how well it keeps things cool and hot. I loaded some refrigerated deli sliced cheese, turkey, and Mayo along with some empty cups and bread on top with no ice or ice packs and the cooler at room temp. with my old Igloo brand lunch box cooler the meat and cheese would have warmed up a little on the 30 min journey into work (nothing life threatening but still not good) but with the RTIC they were as cold as they were in the fridge which actually surprised me since there wasn’t any ice or anything. Also my empty tervis and coffee mug were completely cool to the touch. As for hot items I haven’t had the chance to test this yet but I’m expecting this cooler to outperform my old cooler by a mile. The last pro is the price, it cost the same or less (if on sale) than majority of lunch boxes and other small coolers out on the market today. So what about the cons? Well the only one I can honestly think that people may have is the size. The unit is small but for me personally it works great. Since I don’t know how many people will load these up with cans here is what you can fit in the inside part of the cooler : 4 16oz tervis cups or 4 standard size coffee cups plus 2 plastic containers for a sandwich or ice packs or small bags of chips . as for the side pockets you can fit 2 20oz or 30oz RTIC cups easily and the small front zipper pouch can hold something that is flat. So overall, yes it’s not huge but it is the size of a lunch box so if you need more space buy a hard shell or soft shell cooler. If you’re looking for a great small cooler that lightweight, easy to hold and take around, inexpensive, and fantastic at keeping items cold or hot then get one of these coolers!

Day cooler

by
Very good quality. I use this as a lunch box. I wish it was a little bigger so I could put a coffee thermos inside. I use a different brand lunch box in the winter because I can't fit a small thermos and my lunch inside.
|

OK with Ice

by
So I bought this for baseball and soccer. I wanted to carry some water and Gatorade. Well, if I put actual ice in there, I might be able to put 2-3 16oz bottles in it. Stays cold. However, if I need to put say... LUNCH in this bag, I am limited to using ice packs. And things quickly defrost. I packed it, put it in the fridge over night then tossed in my ice packs at 7am. By noon, things were warm. And it's sitting inside a building! I'm disappointed. I wanted something I could use for lunch and for baseball/soccer practices and games. $25 down the drain on this! If it can't keep my lunch cold with out me throwing ice in it... (ice and zipblock bags with food don't work) then it's a waste.
|

Awesome

by
I use this to carry donor milk around during the day for my baby. That’s how reliable it is. I use two small ice substitutes and often the milk stays frozen, even on 90-100 degree days.
|

Wonderful cooler

by
I bought this as a little lunchbox, and I could not be happier. It is perfect, it hold the cold longer than anything else I’ve used. Fantastic product!
|

Holy cow

by
I bought two of these, one for my boyfriend and one for myself. I'm a nurse and was planning on using this to take my lunches to work. But holy cow... it's a lot bigger then I expected. The picture does not justice at all. I love it and its price is especially good for the quality.

Westminster Ready ❤️I

by
I recently bought the day cooler for traveling to NY for the Westminster Dog Show, it was awesome! We had to be benched with our dogs for 8 hours. It had plenty of room to keep drinks and snacks, and kept them cold the entire day 😊
|

Tough cooler

by
This little cooler is amazing. Plenty of insulation keeps things cold. The frame of it is rigid enough to prevent crushing. Handle carry or strap, it can really go anywhere. Empty it is very light. Outer pocket is nice because it keeps things out of potential ice, but still gets a small amount of cool bleedover from the main area. Really can't beat this cooler for the price.
|

Perfect and durable

by
Very durable. Currently use as a lunch sack. Plenty of room for lunch, snacks and drink, without being awkwardly big. Perfect size for lunch or a day trip.
|

Very nice worth the price

by
My wife and I bought this to keep our sons formula and baby food in when we’re in the car. This has held ice more than 24 hours. If you’re wanting a great lunch box that will out last any other lunch box the. Look no further
|

Very pleasantly surprised

by
For the money, this is a very nice little cooler. I was surprised how durable and well made it is. I just popped it out of the box, but if it works as nice as it looks and feels, I doubt there will be any issue with it.
|

Perfect

by
I carry food to work every day and was tired of the waste with the lunch bags of the past. I had several types, even one that you freeze. The RTIC lunch cooler solved the problem by keeping yogurt, hummus, leftovers, and drinks nice and cold for 10 hours of more- eliminating waste. I use 4 plastic type ice packs with it. It’s roomy and perfect for lunch. I paid full price and even bought one for my husband, a vending machine junky. He’s saving money using his sharp looking RTIC bag. The first time I’ve succeeded in getting him to carry a lunch bag. Thanks RTIC!

Bought it for my granddaughter when she goes to weekend competitions. Kept her water cold and snacks fresh. Loved it. Bag did not leak like other brands!
|

Love

by
I bought 2 of these at Christmas. My drinks stay cold. Even my frozen water doesn't want to thaw out.I have to take it out to thaw. Love .
|

Very happy

by
before I provided a semi-bad review, my icepack melted within 8 hrs. but I went home and put in ice over nite. The ice lasted over 12 hrs. so I put in my lunch with a diff type of icepack. the icepack lasted 12 hrs and was still frozen by EOD. so the review before was incorrect. it was my icepack at fault. so I love my RTIC lunch bag. I ordered 5 more for gifts
|

lunch bag

by
the interior is smaller than I thought, but it keeps my lunch cold. It would be nice if the water bottle pockets would hold a reuseable water bottle comfortably, or better yet, an RTIC 20oz cup, but they are too small and tight to fit easily when the bag is full.
|

Right on the Money!!

by
Bigger and tougher than any soft side lunch box I have ever had. Plenty of room keeps every thing cool until lunch, Once again another great value buy from RTIC.
|

Day Cooler

by
Fantastic size, green color is very nice!. RTIC Coolers are the best on the market holding contents for extended periods of time. High recommend!!
|

8 Can Day Cooler, Black

by
Great cooler for a lunch box, just wish it was bigger like a 20-24 can.make it bigger with the RTIC quality and they will sell.
|

Comes in halcyon snow days

Prefect lunch bag

by
This is the perfect lunch bag. As always quality craftsmanship,and not overpriced.
|

My bag is awesom

by
Really cool bag use for a lunch box. But it would really be awesome if RTIC made a thermos to go along with all the really durable cups
|

Cooling time

by
I put an ice pack in the cooler with my lunch and it did not keep cool for more than about 7 hours. Iv had a great experience with my rtic lowball cup but am disappointed in this product.
|

Peggy

by
This is such a nice cooler..it is well made and insulated good..very eye appealing as well. .will be ordering more for grandsons birthdays both are in college and this come in handy for games and trips home..
|

love it, but

by
The light blue looks like a bright blue, but it was slate blue. A little disappointed.
|

Suggestion

by
Love these but I wish Rtic would put the trap door in the top lid of all soft sided ones for easier access to drinks
|

Excellent Lunch Box

by
I am very impressed with the quality of this Cooler. I needed something to replace my Igloo Playmate lunchbox and this is bigger and better made. It is not the same zipper or lining as the other soft RTICs but it seems to be better quality than the other comparable canvas soft lunchboxes. Very pleased with this RTIC. This is my fourth RTIC cooler and have not been disappointed yet!
|

Disapointed

by
Ordered light blue cooler. Dont know if i was shipped the wrong cooler, but what I received doesn't look like the pic. Not happy! Also had I known this was from China i would have taken my business elsewhere
|

Perfect size, great quality

by
This cooler just arrived at my doorstep today. I have the other lunch size soft cooler and this one is definitely more manageable to take to work. Quality seems to be great and I’m ordering another one for my wife! Would definitely recommend
|

Ok

by
A little small for the price. I dont know yet how well it will retain ice or an item cool.
|

Satisfied

by
I recently got my lunch cooler. I put a couple of ice packs in it along with two hot drinks. I took it to work and place it under the heater vents on the school bus that I drive. The time was 12 noon. I left the drinks and ice packs in the cooler for about 36 hours. The drinks were still cold. The best I have ever gotten out of any other lunch box was 4 hours. I am happy.
|

Excellent

by
I'm using this as a lunchbox. The quality was way higher than I expected for the price. Very good product. I love RTIC products for their value and this will not disappoint.
|

Awesome

by
I would like a little bit bigger day cooler lime a 12 can or so and RED!!!!!
|

Disappointed

by
Why are your items always out of stock? I have no choice but to go to your competitor now, because RTIC doesn't seem to ever have the lunch-sized coolers in stock.
