Ordered my cooler on12/30/16 recieved it on 01/04/17. The cooler arrived in great shape. Put ice in it that evening. Loaded it with drinks on 01/05/17. Used it all weekend never had to add ice to it. This is an awesome cooler. Will be getting the 65 cooler soon. Thanks for such a great cooler.

Wow! Got my RTIC45 in just 5 days! Impressed with the sturdy construction. Can't wait to give it a workout on the lakes in our hot Nebraska summers. A job well done.

RTIC 45 - Cooling Machine

by - verified purchaser
I just added a RTIC 45 to my RTIC Family. Bought the 30 soft side a couple of months ago. This cooler is great. On Saturday, I bought a case a beer and put it in the cooler. I added a little ice from the ice machine that day and on Sunday -- a couple pounds total. It is Monday PM and the beer is still ice cold. I have added a few warm cans a pop to the cooler and they cool in a couple hours just by sitting on top of the beer. Can't wait until boating season as I won't need to fill a cooler half full of ice anymore. I was at Scheels this AM and looked at the other 4 letter companies one that retails for $200 more. My only thought was what I am going to spend the extra $200 on.

Love this cooler, the only thing missing are wheels, and some sort of tie down for an ATV rack. Other than that you nailed it!

Only 1 complaint

by - verified purchaser
This is an amazing cooler for the price. Holds ice for several days in the summer. I forgot several beers in the cooler overnight at -20 degrees. They were cold in the morning but not frozen. I really only have 2 complaints...It took a month and a half longer to arrive than quoted...And it is about 1 1/2" too short for a 2L soda bottle to stand up. I freeze them for ice. The cooler would be a lot easier to pack if it was just a little taller. Otherwise, a great cooler.

awesome icechest

by - verified purchaser
I have an RTIC 65, RTIC 45, softpack 40, camo 30 oz tumbler, 64 oz bottle, and low ball, plus another RTIC 45 on the way... I love my RTICs! only down side is the rubber feet keep coming out. the hard side coolers act like a freezer almost and keep everthing ice cold- dont plan on defrosting meat in it, you will be waiting a few days

Received my RTIC 20 in only 4 days. Had an issue with receiving a slightly damaged cooler, handle was detached from slots causing scratching and marring to cooler on both sides during their handling and shipping I suppose. Should not effect performance though. I am encouraged by their prompt and fast response to my email inquiries. I intend to buy another.

Great Great Cooler

by - verified purchaser
If you are wanting to get a cooler were you can hold items cold for about 5-7 days this cooler is for you. As soon as I got this cooler I washed it out in Soap and water. And has had ice in it ever since. I ordered the tan on 10/8/2016 and got it on 10/14/2016.

Outstanding!

by - verified purchaser
Absolutely outstanding cooler! My daughter plays travel softball and we are away almost every weekend for games. I pre-chill the cooler the night before and then load it up with snacks, beverages and other items the day that we leave. It keeps the ice for days! All of my food and beverages are super cold. Ive received numerous compliments on the Rtic 45. And friends with Yeti's are kicking themselves for spending the extra money when the Rtic performs better than their cooler. Bottom line.....BUY IT!

Looks good

by - verified purchaser
Ordered on friday got it by Wednesday. Haven't used it yet...looks well built only thing negative is the lid vs the bottom color is a little different, but I don't care too much about that. Good quality and fast shipping, I think I will get a lot of good use out of this cooler. Look forward to using it.

Great Cooler

I bought this cooler on 10/8/16. Got it 10/14/16. I love this cooler looking at buying the 65. I have had ice in the cooler ever since I gotten it. I washed the inside out with warn water and dish soap before I used it. A great buy for the price.

ordered a 45 quart got here in good time but I was not happy with the way the cooler sits,it's wobbly. I tried standing on it in my boat and it's not as stable as my 65.I ordered a 65 quart a while ago and use it to stand on in my boat but I cannot lock the lid because holes do not line up on that one. But other than that I'm happy with the coolers
