One good small soft esky - RTIC 38 can

Post by mchughcb » Fri Dec 29, 2017 12:45 am

Well the blaserbuds duck hunt was a wake up call for me. The heat was over 38c or 100F and my ice in my large el cheapo esky had melted quite a bit. Too big too get out of the car, or out of the sun the ice started to melt pretty darn quick. Was too heavy to take out of the car and get into the shade. It also took up too much darn space in the little Suzuki hatch. Something that really irks me as it was not what I needed. Either for drinks nor for the ducks. After a bit of research I decided I wanted a soft esky, smaller than what had and much lighter.

Anyway it looked like the best choices were the Yeti or the RTIC 38 can job. The Yeti got the nod as the better made and more expensive unit whereas the RTIC got the nod for a cheaper, better insulator unit. Of course getting a 38 can RTIC in Oz was never going to be easy, but now it has arrived :dance: Just perfect for those day or few day hunts where you don't want to fill the car up with over capacity gear. Everything about it just looks good and the thickness of the lid just shows how much insulation it has.

I have had the 20 can RTIC cooler for about 6 months now and love it. The only thing I see missing on yours is the super-duper retractable bottle opener, a must have for any cooler..

That’s what wedding rings are for ( as long as they are not gold, titanium works a treat). Then they have a practical use ( wedding rings that it...an esky is always useful).

Well this year I can only go early in November as I will be away in December which will make it a little cooler to hunt in and hitting the Ducks much earlier. :handgestures-thumbup:

If I'm around, sounds like a plan. Might even have a new shotgun by then ;-)
