RTIC Softpak Failure (Update pg.3)
I have two RTIC softpaks. The largest one (40qt I believe) and the small lunchbox size one. The last two times I used them I noticed water leaking out of them while in the back of the truck. After a closer look it appears the lids on them are glued on and the glue is failing. Every time the water in there splashes around it leaks, and even worse if it falls over on its side the entire thing drains. It appears that RTIC only has a one year warranty but I purchased these over two years ago. Should I toss them? What other soft sided coolers do you recommend?

If the glue is failing, why don't you just glue it back?

I hate those. The zipper on mine came off track. I ended up just bringing it to the BR saint Patrick’s day parade and leaving it.

Us kayakers use AO coolers. I'm on year 2 with mine and have had numerous redfish and trout in them.

Should’ve gotten a YETI. They actually warranty their shite.

The hell with RTIC, my soft cooler (30) is coming apart at the top and the zipper broke. The customer service lady told me to get a pool repair kit and to bring it to a seamstress to fix the zipper. I even told her I will pay for repairs, told me there was nothing they could do.

Mine is coming apart at the zipper, causing the zipper to jump track!

Also recommend Seattle Sports. Have had plenty of fish in there with no issues.

People claim RTIC is an exact Yeti replica, yet they don’t honor a lifetime warranty.

If you leave them in the sun apparently they aren’t worth a frick, but RTIC replace the one I sent back last week
