Don't know why anyone would buy a Yeti when RTIC is less than half the price and performs identical. Even looks nearly identical for that matter. Even at $100 off RTIC is still more performance per dollar.

I ordered a Rtic 40 soft sided cooler Sunday for $100. Got here today and can't wait to try it out. I'm also on the Rtic bandwagon. I've got 3 cups and love them.

I second this as well. I was an early adopter of the Yeti tumbler when they were the only ones in the market, but I never bought a cooler simply because of sticker shock. Now that RTIC is around, I have even less reasons to hop on the Yeti train. No hate on the Yeti guys though, I have brand loyalty for other various products so I understand their side of it too.

Not to threadjack but I'm interested in their soft duffel bag too. Being water resistant and all, it seems like it would be useful in a boat.

I cannot believe for the life of me that Yeti is trying to sell their new Yeti Hopper 40 soft coolers for $400 when the RTIC 40 is $140 normally and right now $104 on sale. Who in their right mind would buy that?

Wont be buying any more Yeti products because of how over priced they are after have a few RTIC products.

Agreed with everyone else on RTIC. I have been a Yeti fan boy since the beginning as I live right by there original warehouse but cannot fathom spending that with RTIC around. I got the camo RTIC 20 soft side recently and sold my Yeti Roadie on craigslist immediately after...

What i am saying is you have more of a chance of someone posing on your Yeti than you do with RTIC.

Is there a discount code to use for the 40 soft cooler they are $149 on their site today ?

It looks like they jacked up the price based on demand and the ruling. My wife bought a 30 on Amazon for $87 over the weekend. It is now $125.

They had a Super Bowl weekend sale and everything was 30% off. I'm sure they'll do another one again as they had deliveries of the old versions in their supply chain and they're being delivered in a couple weeks. Once those are in, they'll need to move those so they can sell off that inventory and make way for the redesigned ones per the settlement which should be released by May.

No problem. I took advantage of it as well and got a 20 & 30 soft sided cooler. I really wanted a 65 hard cooler but they were sold out so quick.

Maybe they will have a March Madness sale......

I have a Yeti 90, Roadie 20, many of their tumblers and colsters but I can't see spending the money on their soft side products. In fact, I have an Oazark Trails soft side from Walmart. The facts are with these soft side coolers you're really just looking to get through the day with cold drinks and ice and they all do that, the higher end ones that is.

Yeah they are redesigning the hard coolers as part of their settlement agreement with Yeti.

I thought that too but to be honest, a rotomold cooler from whoever is going to do the same thing and I was in the market to grab on for camping this year anyway....

Although one thing I did not see coming was SeaDek wanting to charge $210 freakin dollars for a cooler pad

That's more than the damn cooler! Doublely blowing my mind is the fact that YETI sells their 65 cooler pad for $100....wtf am I missing? YETI, the king of name brand mark up being cheaper than the source? I get economies of scale/bulk ordering but I have a hard time believing it's over 50% less cost INCLUDING YETI's mark up on it...

I see a lot of the soft side coolers are odd shapes, more rounded and such. Seems kind of odd for a fairly expensive cooler to be an inefficient shape. I have a cheapy soft sided cooler that is square and fits just about perfectly under one of the seats in my boat. I wouldn't buy a rounded or odd shaped cooler, it has to be fairly square to fit well either in my boat or truck.

I did see several reviews comparing the YETI and RTIC cups, performance seemed fairly comparable from what I recall. Not sure how soft coolers compare but my cheapie fits and works fine for how long I need anything cold.

I started with the YETI Hopper 30 and jumped on the RTIC 40 at the end of last year. I did the side by side comparison and you can see the results below.

The ice is about equal but I like the shape and lid on the RTIC better than the YETI bag. It is a pain in the a$$ to get things in and out of the YETI with the straight zipper across the top.

Ive seen pics of Yeti cups with RTIC bottoms on them . lol I think they are all made in the same Chinese sweat shop . Ive also seen comparisons with Yeti, RTIC, and Ozark Trail and they are all the same . I think the comparisons are the reason RTIC and Yeti have been dropping there drink ware prices.

I've been trying to get a new 45 but they always said "sold out". Then I saw this on their home page...

The Company plans to sell its remaining 2016 Models for the next few months and then launch our 2017 Models on or before May 1, 2017, in time for the summer season. We will continue to offer on our website many items while supplies last. Upon the launch of the 2017 Summer Product Line, we will return to our regular everyday low pricing, keeping true to our promise to deliver "Over Built – Not Over Priced" products.

I don't think a March Madness sale is going to happen.

Somebody needs to come up with a backpack cooler, something you can wear walking around expos/race venues/long hikes. Slinging a cooler over the shoulder just wouldn't be feasible for two or three hours.
