I tell my wife not to buy anything else as our house, garage and shed are all full of ''stuff''. I suspect if I order another one I would be in real trouble too, lol.

10) Do you take cooler advice from a guy with more coolers than any 3 friends of yours put together?

If you answer 'yes' to more than 4 of those... I got some bad news for ya.

Cowracer, was condition #10 referring to TURBS?

I think I have every one of those conditions. I put the 2 new 65's and 45 up in the shed and brought all the others down to my back patio to give them away, or maybe do a curb alert. A 120 Igloo, 4 other large ones of various sizes and brands, and at least 4 smaller ones. Last night when I came home from work I grabbed one of the small igloos with the swing open lid which was fairly new,and put it back in the shed I may need that until I order a RTIC 20.

Take them to Salvation Army or a local food pantry. They are always hurting for coolers and you get a tax deduction for the donation.

Rtic stood behind the cooler and has sent me a new one in two days of receiving my old one back. This one is definitely sealed. Took a lot more effort to break the suction.

Just walked in the door from 4 days of camping. The cooler (65) worked great. We never had to add a drop of ice. The cooler is still full minus all the beers.

You could be right....but they were out for a couple weeks. I think Rtic sold out before then.

Here is their newest press release on FB from Feb 18:


RTIC Thrives While Other Outdoor Companies Are Struggling
RTIC success continues with its “Over Built – Not Over Priced” online marketing strategy while other retailers flounder in the outdoor space. In 2016, its first full year of operations, RTIC achieved nearly $200 million in online sales and is on course to double that in 2017 while others in this category are reeling from consolidation and disruption by ecommerce retailers like RTIC.
RTIC is an online retailer of its branded premium roto-molded coolers, soft sided coolers and stainless steel drinkware. The Company is moving further into the outdoor space with its rollout of RTIC branded line of water resistant duffel bags and other high-end outdoor gear.
Many players in this space are finding they are unable to compete with direct to the consumer retailers such as RTIC. These online only retailers are able to offer a great value to their customers by cutting out the middle man and avoiding the high cost of a brick and mortar store. This online only model allows RTIC to offer premium products at greatly reduced prices.
The past year has seen a number of outdoor retailers consolidate or go out of business. Cabelas is being acquired by Bass Pro Shops, Eastern Mountain Sports filed for bankruptcy last week, Sports Authority was liquidated in May 2016 and Gander Mountain is said to be near a bankruptcy filing, according to several reports.
“RTIC fills a big hole in the retail landscape. The Outdoor space is a top performing category for digital ecommerce and RTIC has clearly established itself as a leading e-commerce player in the active outdoor category. RTIC’s online expertise will help us further enhance our products and allow us to be a major player in the outdoor category," said RTIC CEO John Jacobsen in a statement.
RTIC was founded by twin brothers John and Jim Jacobsen and has generated over 1.5 million followers on Facebook since shipping its first cooler in September 2015 and now employs over 100 people. RTIC is based in the Houston suburb of Cypress and owns fulfilment centers in Houston, Atlanta, Chicago, Harrisburg & Fresno occupying over 300,000 square feet of space.
Additional products the company is currently rolling out in the Spring include a 110 & 145 quart cooler, a light blue line of coolers, additional drinkware items including a tall boy, V-shape stackable pint tumblers, water bottles, a 40 oz. tumbler, new cup holder friendly handles, food containers, additional sport bottles and the exclusive RTIC water filtration system for select RTIC drinkware.

Bought and received the 30 qt. soft side RTIC cooler. It appears to be built well and zipper works fine. I am going to use this in the truck, instead of my 12v electric cooler. The RTIC will take up less space and not have to worry about wires/plug-ins. Plus the RTIC will hold more stuff.

Thanks for the heads up.
