    The seals are really good in coolers these days. You can open the drain plug if it becomes difficult to open. Or let your mom open it for you...sorry...just wanted to throw a mom joke in.

    Used my Orca 75 for the first time this weekend. Heavy as fuck, pretty much left it where I dropped it. Worked great. 2 days and temps in the 60-70ís so not much of a test.

    A nice thing is that these are critter proof. I just latched it down and left it outside overnight with no worries of animals getting into it. Iím happy with it but I do think it is way more than I need as a weekend warrior in the PNW.

    For sure on the lock, and if you are in bear country put that damn thing in the car.

    Yea. I guess I should of put it in the car or the giant steel bear box 5 ft away.

    The latches keep the little kid critters out pretty good though

    Looks interesting. The lid system seems like it may annoy me. Maybe they'll offer one with a more conventional lid eventually?

    WWMD?!?!

    Iím going on a houseboat / lake trip. I made 10#s of fresh homemade sausage as my meal contribution for the group. I have to take a plane and a decent drive to get there, say 8 hours of travel. Links are vac sealed and frozen.

    Plan A: buy a cheap/disposable foam cooler. Carry it on the plane. Dispose of it at the end of the trip...

    Plan B: carry on two small cheap hardside coolers I already own. Plan on returning with them...

    Plan C: Check my 45 RTIC both ways...

    Plan D: Buy a nice soft side cooler I can stuff in my bag on the way home...

    Dry ice wrapped with towels, pour regular ice on top of that and make bottom of cooler solid block.
    This is my two week plan with a 72 quart cooler for burning man that the seams get taped up on and opened about day 6 or 7.

    How do you like the RTIC? I need to get a roto for some situations when the Coleman Xtremes would get too beat up...

    Looks like a couple of Tier 1s with different stickers sitting in the woods.

    Best Cooler for few days?

    Yeti is Tier 1. My coolers are just posers

    Actually the RTIC is my friends.

    They all work the same to be honest. RTIC is great. A bit overkill for the weekend trips.

    The RTIC is 65 qt and the Orca is 75qt.


    Heavy as hell and the interior is a bit smaller than expected but they work great and canít really see them breaking ever.

    They’re all tier 1 if you just want to keep things cold.
