Great cooler!

by - verified purchaser
Fantastic cooler. Has really great ice retention. I’ve had mine for a few weeks not and could not be happier. Thanks so much Ashlee for your help with the cooler! Also thanks for your support of the 2nd amendment.

Aweso.e cooler

My brother won the Rtic 45 (white). We took it on a bachelor party and I loved it so much I ordered one (tan) the day we got back. The ice didnt melt all weekend and all we had to do was keep adding beer. Definitely worth the price. Only complaint is also one thing I love, the slip resistant feet suck for loading into my truck cause it cant slide. But once in the truck it never slid.

Awsome Ice Chest

by - verified purchaser
I own the 45 and 20 and I love both of them. After my Colman ice chest full of fish fell off the back of the four wheeler in the middle of a dirt road, I decided to try something that had a lock hatch so my fish or what ever I have don't go everywhere in case of a mishap. I bought it for the toughness that the Ice chest demonstrates and I am not disappointed one bit. Well worth the money.

Awesome Coolers

I just received my third cooler ! Now I have a 20,45,65 :) The money I saved the first year with the 65 paid for itself !!! What is needed now is for your company to make a wheeled system for the big cooler's so the better have can move them around when loaded ! Awesome Cooler's & thanks again.

Just what I needed. Ordered and got it in just three days. Looked it over and used it. Worked great. Going to order the 20 tan next along with some tumblers.

RZR Riding

by - verified purchaser
Very happy. If buying to stick in SXS this is the cooler to buy. The bed of rzrs get pretty hot, I can ice down on Friday evening, add one small bag for the whole weekend and still ice cold by Monday. Compared to adding 3-4 bags to a regular cooler. Take away the pounding heat from a rzr exhaust underneath it and I have no doubt ice would last days.

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!
