Customer Testimonials

“Lighter, Stronger and Cheaper Than a Yeti.”
- Gear Patrol

Virtually Indestructible Rigorite™ Coating.

Cavernous Cooler Space

Open any roto-molded cooler and the first thing you notice is how thick the cooler walls are and how little space this leaves for ice and contents. The Rugged Road 45 is different. Its cavernous design gives you far more useable space. In fact, roto-molded coolers with similar exterior dimensions have an interior capacity of about 38 cans. While you'll fit 45 cans in your Rugged Road 45!

The only cooler that floats upright.

Love my Rugged Road Cooler!

I love my Rugged Road cooler! I have had it for several months now and it is great - I can't believe how lightweight it is. I am not a very strong person, so it can be a struggle carrying a full cooler, but with this one I am able to carry it no problem! I mostly use it for drinks / cans and it always keeps them cold for several days, even when it is warm outside. When I am camping, I don't have to change the ice for several days which makes it so much easier to have cold food and drinks. Highly recommend purchasing this cooler!

Hi, Kelly! We are so glad you are enjoying your lightweight cooler and are using it on your camping adventures. We're stoked to be a part of your camping essentials. Thank you so much for sharing your feedback!

They stand by their warranty

I have. Bought one of their coolers from my local Outdoors dealer Had it for about six months Started to crack on the bottom. Didn't think much of it. Decided to call out of curiosity to see if they would cover it. And no questions asked sent me a brand new 45 cooler. Will definitely buy from them again.

Rugged Road Outdoors

Hey there, Hunter! While we are disappointed to hear that your cooler began to wear down, we're glad that we were able to get a replacement into your hands per the Rugged Road ultralight cooler lifetime warranty. Thank you for your understanding and continuing to support our small, growing business!
