Got my 65 in tan over a year ago and besides scratches from a dirt bike i had in the bed its still perfect. Holds ice so well i took the plunge and bought a 145 as well. Hands down my favorite cooler for the money

Fantastic Product

I have had the 65 cooler for a few years now. It is a wonderful product that performs as rated. The quality and construction are excellent and I would recommend RTIC products to anyone.

65 Qt Cooler

by - verified purchaser
Purchased 65 qt 18 mos ago. Of course it's heavy but a great quality product at a great price especially w/ 20% discount & no shipping. If you love Yeti, put a Yet sticker on the lid; you will never know the difference. My only improvement would be to place a higher quality handle rope but this is easy enough to replace if it fails or is too flimsy. WAY TO GO RTIC, GREAT PRODUCTS !!

Too Small

by - verified purchaser
I bought the 20 for myself when I was going to have shoulder surgery to meal prep my food since I had to recover at my parents place. It was too small to fit 2 days worth of food in there. That was the bit down fall for me. Its a lot smaller inside then it looks on the outside. Other then that it works well and keeps my things cold.

I’ve had my 65’r for a year now and it hasn’t disappointed me once. It has kept food and drinks cold and fresh time and time again. Held up to a beating in the back of my truck or out in the elements. Would highly recommend!

Love this thing!

by - verified purchaser
This 65qt tan ice chest is awesome. Looks great and usually holds my ice for a week. I highly recommend this product!! My only complaint is it is pretty heavy. That being said, it really does its job. For the price you can not beat it! I got mine on sale too.

Love it

by - verified purchaser
Awesome cooler. Got a 65 qt put in drinks and cold food loaded ice and it keeps all week. I had to throw out ice after I got home at the end of the week and it was still cold. I’ve never had better and I don’t plan on changing at any point in time. In fact I’m looking to buy a few more.

Best Bang for your buck

by - verified purchaser
Second Rtic 65 I’ve purchased in last year. These coolers hold ice for 5-6 days in the warm late Summer- early Fall days when I’m hunting and fishing in Eastern NC. Sits solidly in back of my truck when I’m in and out of the old logging roads I travel. It is a little heavier than some but the price difference makes up for it.

Can't Be Beat

by - verified purchaser
Last weekend (it was in the 70's to mid 80's) my wife and I took a semi-primitive camping/ATV trip for 4 days (I was in my Toy Hauler but had no power (excpt the generator which we seldom ran) or running water) All beers were cold before being loaded into the coolers and the coolers were pre-chilled. Started on Tuesday night with loading my Pelican 20 with 15 Miller Lites and 6 Mich Ultras and 10 pounds of ice (I make my own ice), put two 10 pound bags in the camper freezer. On Wednesday morning at 11am In the RTIC 20 I loaded 23 Mich Ultras and 10 pounds of ice. In the RTIC 65 I loaded 72 Miller lites, 1 Mich Ultra and 20 pounds of ice. For y'all counting I did bring back 43 Miller Lites and 9 Mich Ultras. So the trip begins on Wednesday at 11am with an 83 mile drive. Lets just cut to the chase. I only had to add 10 pounds of ice for the rest of the trip. That was into the Pelican which is strapped onto the ATV and is accessed many times daily. So you see RTIC does make an outstanding product that no one should be leary of buying.

Amazing

by - verified purchaser
Bought the 65 to keep in my van when I'm camping. Made it 6 days with lots of ice left. Only con is, if you leave it in direct sunlight, it'll warp the top and stop the vacuum seal working. The lid went back into shape when it cooled down though. Otherwise amazing cooler, best investment in a cooler that you can make. Looks good, very rugged, drain works very nice, and handles are amazing. 5 star cooler

Great!

by - verified purchaser
So we've had this cooler for almost a year now. It's well worth the money. It held ice for 4 days in 95+ degree weather, the 5th day not really any ice but the the drinks were still cold. We've used it in some cooler weather, around 70 degrees... and you can easily keep ice for 6+ days. The 65 is freaking huge and gets heavy fast. Definitely going to be a 20, and possibly a 45. Great product!!!

outstanding cooler

Best cooler I have owned by far, no need to spend more money on one of the other brand coolers, this cooler will do everything they do and better!

Amazing cooler

by - verified purchaser
Cooler spent 4 days in the hot sun, constantly being opened and rummaged through. The ice barely melted and everything was kept extremely cold the entire time! So impressed with this cooler, especially for the price!

Great Price for Great Cooler

by - verified purchaser
This is a very good cooler with an even better price, I have a 70 Qt Pelican that cost around 100$ more and this cooler holds ice and keeps things cold just as good as the Pelican does, and it is by far cheaper than the brand that it looks very similar to. Over all I am very happy with the way this cooler performs the only thing I would prefer would be a longer warranty, other than that, I have zero complaints. GREAT COOLER!!

Great cooler but heavy

by - verified purchaser
This cooler is awesome! But I'd wished I'd adjusted my eyes to bigger is better. These coolers are really heavy. What I know now. I'd rather have had 3x45 coolers. A more expensive option. But, I could have put one on a hand truck loaded with ice and or food and drink and roll out front door of house to trailer. A 65 is too wide and heavy to do that. I can't imagine any version bigger unless you load it in place or have the "Hulk" on your speed dial, or a forklift to move it. Great cooler just the same. But smaller and more of them would have been better solution in my case. Still a great product, just adding prospective.
