Just a heads up if you've been wanting to get a Roto molded cooler but didn't want to pay the price they are on sale online. They were always half price of the yeti's but now cheaper than their original price and ship next day.

Well that would depend on how many fish you catch and keep. Yes they are all heavier than our former igloos. I love/hate them lol.

Pros:
Keep ice very good
Lifetime cooler
Don't slide in truck
Can stand on them without lid crushing
One time purchase

Cons:
Can be heavy
Don't slide so you have to pick it up
Smaller holding capacity than a cheap ice chest it's size.
People are more tempted to steal them.

I have a 75 qt yeti that I was able to buy at wholesale price. It is the size of a marine 90qt igloo. I have since went through two 90's and my yeti looks almost brand new. The marine igloos are almost 100$. You do the math

That is a heck of deal. Just ordered some. Thanks. But I agree. The weight is a double edged sword.

How many sacks of crawfish will a 65 qt hold?

Depends are you asking sacked, or loose? You could probably fit two sacks and more than that loose but I'm not sure. I know loose you can fit two or more. Not sure if they are in sacks. I haven't received mine yet to know

They said mine already shipped. Hope that is true. Had a friend get one last summer that took 4-6 months which was normal is what I am told.

I lurk on another hunting site and some are getting them next day. Yeah your email says shipped but I'm sure it was just processed. I had to wait months for my 20 to come in but I think they are stateside now w loads of product so the time should be minimal hopefully

Look on your email there is a tracking number. It will pull up ups tracking. At the top it will tell you what progress it's in

I have been wanting one of these for a while $139 and free shipping was too good to pass up on the 65 quart. Just wish the blue was on sale.. haha .

I did some work for the guy that owns this company and was hoping for a free cooler but no such luck. He showed us a prototype 65qt with led lights inside and hatch in top to grab a drink. I bought a Igloo sportsman rotomolded 65qt made in USA for 250$ on amazon.

Yep, mine scheduled for tomorrow also. Sure hope the quality of these is as good as the older ones. I read where there warranty is now for only 30days but at that price I am willing to take a chance.

Yeah I can afford to buy a new gasket or anything just w savings. Do a paper test on it. By this I mean put paper on the edge and close the lid. If it seals well you won't be able to pull it out. Check all sides. If you can pull it out call them for a replacement or gasket.

If quicker than two days that's pretty good. That's how long it took to receive mine with Amazon prime.

I will do that when I get them as it doesnt look as if they offer just the gaskets. A lot of other stuff but no gaskets. And I will put them thru heck before 30 days, ha.

Got mine Friday. Wished I had gotten the 45 qt cooler. May have to buy it "just because".

I compared the yeti 65 next to the RTIC and can tell no real diff. In fact they look identically made

Got both of mine in. Fixed the T-Latches with a lock washer on each latch. Now they work great.
