I'm not usually one to do this, but that cooler is $117 on their website....I'd be interested in it at like $70, but $175 is a little steep.

They ARE all sold out, every color, but their regular price is $174.99. I'll assume it will be the same when they get them back in stock.

They just settled a lawsuit with Yeti; the terms were undisclosed but they have to stop selling some products as a result.

Nope...they had to stop MAKING the same design. They were free to sell all inventory, hence the sale.

Yep, they can still sell coolers. They just have to change their design enough to satisfy the lawsuit. Their coolers can no longer look exactly like the YETI is how I understand it.

They have new soft coolers on their website but not the new roto-molded yet. I was lucky enough to get one before they sold out. $179 is steep for that cooler but maybe someone will buy it. I'd try craigslist

Awesome... looks just like a yeti in every way. I wonder how they thought they could get away with that?

The new model Roto molded coolers are set to be in stock mid May, according to their website....Same pricing as the older models. I purchased the soft sided 30 and the tan 45 during the sale....wanted a 65 but didn't pull the trigger fast enough....awesome coolers....I couldn't be more pleased. Dippin Kodiak....I see OBO.....I'll come to Columbia and pick it up for $100...

Now that this thread has been almost completely derailed..........


This is a she said/he said story and definitely second hand, but the way I understand it is that the owner oy RTIC was a co-founder or partner of the YETI owner. They went their separate ways and the RTIC owner starting building his coolers in the exact same Chinese plant as YETI. Hence the reason they looked exactly alike, I'm just not sure why the RTICs actual capacity was what they advertise as opposed to YETI coolers which have less capacity than what they advertise. I.E. - the YETI 65 actual volume is 44 quarts as opposed to the RTIC 65 which the actual volume is 65.46 quarts http://forum.expeditionportal.com/threads/160402-ACTUAL-capacities-of-Yeti-v-Pelican-v-RTIC-coolers.

RTIC has until 5/1/17 to sell off the existing product (that was found to be in violation) per the ruling. They were ordered to redesign their product, and show ample deviations from their current design that infringes on Yeti's design, before being permitted to release "new" product.





No matter how much it hurts, how dark it gets, or how far you fall...you are never out of the fight.
