New cooler line RTIC

Looks like a Yeti but half the price. Claims to hold ice longer. They don't offer a large line yet but sounds like they will have a 125 by the end of the year. Worth checking out.

wow, good thing they didn't waste money on having their manufacturer to do something like a major redesign from the yeti molds... id love to hear the conversation Yeti has with their manufacturer's rep when they see these. probably need more bleeps than a redneck reality show!

About time someone made a high end cooler that doesn't cost a mint.

Those things (Yetis and these) are basically cookie cutter coolers out of China where patents are traded like bubble gum. I had a friend that was setting up a connection with a chinese manufacturer I had planned to help him fill his first connex box with some of these coolers, rafts and kayaks. His little project fell through though.

"Half the Price of a YETI* Cooler
& Holds More Ice!" ---RTIC website

Say what? So is it larger without being larger?

It is larger. The 20 is actually a 22. Dimensions are on the site.

A buddy just sent me a link to these last night. I'm going to order the 65 and see if I can shove it in the small boat. With a 60 day return policy, I have nothing to loose.

I get a big laugh out of US companies that design stuff then send it to China for cheap manufacturing. The Chinese industrial types must be joking big time about how short sighted us Americans are when it comes to business.

Far as I can see from reading news reports about China, there is zero to minus zero concern about following the rules USA based companies must follow to build stuff.

I am not saying the China industrial complex cannot build decent gear. But it looks like quality depends on the follow up on quality control before paying the bucks. It also looks to me like any US Company that sources stuff out of China has to understand their ideas are likely to be shared to the next highest bidder, regardless of copyright etc US laws.

I have spent a ton of money on Yeti coolers and the quality has been good.

If and when I do need another cooler, RTIC will certainly be on my list to check out.

looks to me like RTIC has figured out how the cooler made in China but sold in the US game is played.

Then Yeti should explain how 36.8 = 45. Bad math.
