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.

Liked the first one so much I bought a second one

I bought the 45 V2 cooler this time for gatherings around the pool. I really appreciate how light weight this is and it keeps the drinks and snacks cold perfectly.

Awesome cooler!!!

We love this cooler. It’s super lightweight, love that it holds 45 cans plus ice and best of all it floats. We do a lot of outdoor activities and having a lightweight & durable cooler is key. We look forward to using it on all our adventures. @fiftyandfifthwheeling

Best cooler I’ve ever owned!

I’ve owned every major cooler on the market at one point or the other, and this one is hands down the best! The cooler I received had one little mark that you had to look extra hard to see. Only regret is that I didn’t by two of them.

Stoked to hear that you're loving your cooler purchased during our annual Warehouse Sale, Brian! We hope to hear more about where your Rugged Road cooler accompanies you. :)

They loved it!

Purchased 4 of these in different colors, on sale, as Christmas gifts for my sons/son-in-laws, filled them with misc small items their families would like, & put them under the tree. They loved them & were impressed with the lightness, quality, & float feature. (Especially my fisherman son). HoHoHo

Way smaller then you think.

This almost 400$ cooler is way smaller then you would think. Barely enough space for just a case of drinks.

01/03/2024

Rugged Road Outdoors

Hi Michael! Sorry to hear that the cooler was smaller than you anticipated. The RR45 will fit up to 45 cans, but we recommend less if you want room for plenty of ice to keep your drinks cold for days :)

Second purchase

I have the 85 for big stuff like deer, but I got the 45 for family short sports travel… perfect for snacks, sodas, beer etc.

Hi Andrew! Thanks for taking some time to share your experience, but more importantly, thank you for coming back to support our small business again! We're stoked that the coolers are a great fit for all activities in your life :)

A fantastic cooler

This is a fantastic cooler. I purchased it from the scratch and dent sale. It took me about 3 minutes to find what they considered an imperfection. Clearly they are extremely fussy about quality. The performance of their cooler is as advertised. If you’re thinking about a cooler, this is the one.

Hi Bruce! Thanks for taking some time to share your experience with us. We're so glad the cooler has surpassed your expectations :) If you need anything down the road, don't hesitate to give us a shout!

Great for the front of a Rivian

Fits in the Rivian front trunk area and doesn’t slide around. The lid will close without worry where it is. As far as a cooler, it’s great quality and stays cold for days. Not sir how long but was great after 3 days.
