    I disagree. I've dropped mine out of the back of the Rzr climbing hills where it rolls down, accidently backed over it on the Rzr where it lifted my rear tires off the ground, and also left my tailgate down on my truck and had it fall out while on the trails. I'd be purchasing 3 plastic Igloo coolers if it lived in my possession lol.

    can't disagree there lol. But it also wouldn't be an issue with a pelican cooler :thumbsup:

    I picked up a "Frosty" from one of the TW members last year: working out great! Much more insulation than your typical cooler. Gasketed lid, rubber-stretch closures...:thumbsup:

    Why not try a new drain plug? If that doesnt work just seal it where it wont leak.

    They're sold out online. It's been that way forever. Their customer service also sucks, they end the conversation as soon as you tell them you didn't buy it direct. It ended up being a big waste of money. But lesson learned.

    If I'm being totally honest, it doesn't cool any better than the igloo it replaced. It's super heavy loaded. If you don't have one, you're not really missing anything. I can't speak for the other brands. But that was my experience with the RTIC.

    I have an Rtic 45, Yeti 65 and Rtic 30 softside. I like the Rtic the best. I have a small cooler obsession :rofl:

    I like my RTIC, but now my ARB fridge is ruler of my kingdom for providing me frozen popsicles in Moab. Also it's kinda fun flexin on Yeti bros.

    FYI. I got the Ozark Trail Yeti-style tote for $18 at Wal-mart on Black Friday last year.... Just a thought.

    But the reason I came to this thread is I'm about to get the Otterbox Venture 45.. I'll let you all know once it arrives.

    Otter box venture is a great cooler. I’ve had it for about 6 months or so. Did you get the kit from Costco? The one that comes with the cutting board, divider, side table and organizer tray?

    Yeah it looks pretty awesome. I went with the Venture 45, the divider, and the side-tray table and cup-holder thingy.

    And no, I have a friend that works at Otterbox and I ordered direct from the site.
