Its definitely sturdy, I'm 190lbs and I can sit, stand, jump on it and it feels solid. Considering its replacing a 10 yead old igloo that's been abused pretty good, I think I'll like it. The only thing I don't like is that the drain plug isn't attached. Other than that it seems like a good deal.

It took a few months to get it. I ordered before they were shipping, I'm not sure what the wait time is now.

I have an Engel MT45 fridge/freezer and an Engel Deep Blue 60 cooler. I would buy them both again with no hesitation.

If anyone is looking for one of the RTIC's, the coolers (in tan) and softpak's are on sale.
Coolers:

As much as I want one, I can't decide if I really "need" one.

I picked up the 65 quart tan one because it was $160 and I'm tired of the 15+ year old Coleman steel belted I have. I"ll also have a yeti for beer and the rtic for food so "brown cooler/white cooler" will be easier to already know what's inside. I didn't NEED one but it was probably better than I expect their black friday sale to be.

Currently 305 off RTIC coolers in white and tan. I picked up a 65 for Christmas and just ordered a 20 today because the lawsuit with YETI is finalized. If you check RTIC's social media they're not telling people they have to stop making their coolers, or cups and they're not telling people they have to give YETI money.

YETI Coolers reaches settlement with Texas rival RTIC



AUSTIN -- YETI coolers announced Thursday that a binding settlement was reached in its lawsuit against RTIC Coolers.

The lawsuit, filed in federal district court, alleged patent infringement, trade dress infringement, trademark infringement and unfair competition.

According to the terms of the settlement, RTIC Coolers is required to make a financial payment to YETI; to cease sales of all products subject to the lawsuit -- this includes hard-sided coolers, soft-sided coolers and drinkware -- and to redesign all products in question.

RTIC co-founder John Jacobsen told the Houston Chronicle for Friday's edition, "That his company entered the settlement to avoid the additional cost and uncertainty of litigation."

YETI CEO Matt Reintjes stated in a press release, “We are extremely pleased with the results we have achieved. We will continue to defend our innovation and intellectual property. This is a true win.”

Bumping this back up. Is a Yeti worth the money? Is RTIC still making a comparable product?

That can be nothing but a personal judgement call.

Pelican's look good to me.

For a permanent install, DIY.

RTIC just went through a redesign because of the lawsuit but i would think it is still a better product for less money.

I've come to the conclusion to buy them used. My yeti was 100 bucks from some dude on facebook. I use the shit out of it. I have a coleman 5 day cooler that wishes it can keep ice as long as the yeti. I use dry ice in them, and it'll freeze the water bottles solid, and maintain for at LEAST 4 days.

I'd buy a Pelican all day long. I thought they were on the spendy end until I looked at the Yeti in a local store and wow. They are more $$ than Pelican and can't see why at all.

RTIC is still in business. I like the ones I bought from them and I'm considering buying their small lunch box sized one (currently on sale with discount code Thanks25 through 9/30 I think) for $82 shipped. I have a 65 and their 20. Both have their place. The 20 is great for me and the wife to travel a few hours and have snacks and drinks along the way. With child #1 on the way I'm sure it will be used even more.

Has anyone used the ICE MULE Soft Sided Coolers?

I know it's not the Yetiarticiglooozark style, but I'm considering using one for inside the hard storage on my ATV instead of mounting a separate cooler.

Biggest problems I see with the Yeti's and Pelican's is the physical size they take up. I've got my storage area arranged in a way that I can't fit a big cooler so I will end up losing interior storage capacity.

I just got one of these styles from Kawartha Outdoor instead. It was cheap and I think it will work well. I wish there was an mount for roll cages though.

I bought one of the new pelican 70qt coolers about 2 months ago. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. I put about 30-40 cans of soda/beer in it along with some random snacks in it for a road trip because I just got it and filled the rest with ice. This was on a Saturday afternoon and it was finally all ice cold water and no ice on friday. I was in it at least 3-4 times a day for the entire week as it rode around in the back of a hot (95-110 outside) enclosed vehicle. No coleman is going to do that! I love the latch system, no rubber to yank on or rott out in the sun. The body is rock solid, standing on it is like standing on a block of concrete. I can jump up and down (I weigh 250lbs) and it does not flex one bit. I really bought this cooler because I'm tired of breaking coolers, the long ice life is a bonus. I paid 278 dollars + tax with free shipping (msrp and normal price almost everywhere is 400). I made an aluminum divider for it and got a 1/2 size steam pan for use as dry basket. It's been on 2 trips in the 2 months I've had it and will be used for many years to come thanks to its sturdy construction. The new pelicans are a lot lighter than the older ones. My 70 weighs a 33.29lbs vs the older 65qt weight of 48lbs.

I have a 30 and 50 quart pelican, they are bulky for the storage space you get but you're going to have that if you want it to keep cold. I doubt you'd find a better built cooler, no rope handles or rubber "latches"

Just bought a Rtic 20 with the Thanks25 code from a couple posts back. $101 shipped. I'm eyeballing the 110 for my boat but the code doesn't seem to work on it. $320 shipped beats the crap out of yeti prices though. Ive had a Yeti 65 for 4-5 years now and love it. It wasn't cheap but it's gotten enough use that it was more than worth it.
