I bought a few of the old colored ones from Rtic. They were painted and you could see the uneven finish at the lip.

Only advantage I've seen between the two brands if that even matters to you.



Swooped this off RTIC Facebook:

New lids going to be darker to help block the sun, and also spill proof. Taper is more fluid now. They got rid of the YETI style logo for the big R with bear inside.

How long did your Yeti and Rtic do keeping drinks cold?
With enough ice both keep drinks cold all day. I left my 50 oz. Yeti full of ice water in my truck for 7 hours on a 90° day. When I got back the Yeti was hot on the outside but the water was ice cold.

Thanks for your answers gentlemen! I typically don't check YouTube reviews as I'm not sure how legit they are. It seems like some reviews are commercials for the product they're reviewing. But I'll check out both the Yeti and Rtic, thanks!

Flagrant rip off, but a very solid product.
In that case, how are these any different than buying fake watches?

:popcorn:



:banplz:
I knew we'd get here :)

Fake watches are not functionally the same as what they're faking, i.e a 3135 in a Rolex is obviously far superior to an Chinese ETA clone in a fake, but an RTIC can keep shit cold to the exact same standards (and better in some tests) as a Yeti. I guess? Kinda? Maybe?

Really I got nothing. Morals go out the window when I'm considering $350 coolers. Image

Also, screw this thread. I had no idea I "needed" a high end cooler until browsing this :). Although it will come I handy for those times when I am in the woods for days.
Agreed

Panerai7 wrote:I don't know anything about coolers but for tumblers Yeti tumblers are made in the same stainless steel tumbler factory in China, Zhejiang Zhuosheng Industry & Trade Co, as the others including Ozark (Wal-Mart brand). So to me personally it's not fair to compare these tumblers to Rolex and fake MIC Rolex. More like a rebranded identical product. Not that I condone such practices but if Rolex made the same Sub with a sterile dial or call it Ozark and sold it for 75% less than a Rolex branded Sub, I'd be tempted :)

Edit: of course I don't know how much $ Yeti spent on R&D before they found that Chinese manufacturer so that's probably why they're pissed off and suing
That's not surprising that Yeti and Ozark are made in the same factory! The same is true of store brand meats, where most of the hams are made by Smithfield.

Also related: not everything that comes out of the same factory has the same quality.

I've never understood the "look! This private label pasta/cookie/ham/electronic device/whatever comes out of the same factory as the much more expensive brand name alternative, they are the same!"

It's an assumption based on nothing

I took an RTIC 30 soft cooler to the beach last week. Works great. I like that the lid opens up all the way vs the yeti which just has a slit.

It kept the beer cold until it was all gone, and it's not so heavy that I couldn't tote it from the house to the beach . Thumbs up from me!

I gotta believe the Coleman's work just as well as the hyper-expensive brands on the market today. :thumbsup:

This thread bump reminded me I wanted to get a new one, so I just bought this:

Coleman Extremes seem to perform and rate highly, even if they don't look like anything special.
I wanted wheels, because it sucks to move a full cooler!

Just wanted to report back on the RTIC Softpak 20. I used it pretty extensively on my recent vacation and I can't imagine ever needing anything else in this size. I was using an overpriced Yeti 4lb ice pack to cool things and the beer we bought on Sunday was still pretty cold on Wednesday. Nice and easy to access things with the flip top lid and the zipper opens smoothly with no snags. I like the two small pockets for extra storage on the outside for bottle openers, napkins, etc. My only regret is not going for the 30 size. Maybe next summer.

Arrived three days after I ordered and included zipper grease, which I haven't needed. It's very well built, easy to carry, not too heavy, and easily worth $100 for me. :thumbsup:

Every time I see this thread, I think of this:
"Ohio State hopes so and says it has learned its lesson from big matchups such as the Texas game in 2005, in which cleanup crews found several soiled shorts and a few coolers filled with poop"

From the looks of that bicycle tire I'd say you DON'T have serious lack of fun problems. Cool!

Yeah my Coleman extreme worked without precooling, leaving it in my car in the summer (in the sun @ the beach), and still had ice after 4 days. It was all of $50 at BJs

Slightly late to the party. Haven't seen the coolers, but I have 2 Yeti tumblers. The biggest difference between them and my wife's Ozark tumbler is the lid on the Ozark. Definitely cut costs there.
Given the price difference, if I had to buy one (I got the Yetis at work), I'd probably go with the Ozark.
Then again, I'm rarely off the grid.

FYI...RTIC has all stock 25% off now on their site. They raised prices a bit after the Yeti lawsuit revamp, but not too much...

They settled, but RTIC had to redesign their whole line...hence the new look.

Thanks! I can't tell a difference in their new products.
