We love RR

Got this cooler to take on a long hunt trip and if necessary bring meat back home. She's spacious and keeps everything cool for the ride! The length of time it held ice was amazing. we had no ice where we setup our tents and it is a pretty far drive to town so it held ice for multiple days without needing a refill.


Rugged Road Outdoors

Hey, Baylee! Thanks for bringing your cooler along for the hunt, we're stoked to hear it performed well! Let us know if there's anything we can do for you down the road. :)

This ice chest is awesome and it does exactly like advertised. We’ve had it in the pool full of ice and drinks and it does float. If you flip it over, it will stand right back up. We’ve had ice in it for 3.5 days, so far that’s the longest, and it was still good. I love the dividers. Oh yes and the weight compared to other ice chest don’t even compare, half the weight if not more.


Rugged Road Outdoors
