FWIW....

Travis told me about this (travistrick). 

I have plenty of coolers but I ordered the medium and large duffel bags and a couple drinkware items.

Ordered around 6PM.  Got a notification of the order.  An hour later, notification of shipping with tracking numbers.  Yay.

    Last time I ordered from them it was three days after I got the tracking number before there was any movement of the package from their warehouse.

    Truly a First World problem of the first order (no pun intended). Amazon Now really spoils a person.

    Thinking I might order some of the RTIC bottles. When they arrive I'll be sure to post a pix (I hear some people thrive on that kind of thing).

    Mine arrived missing a drain plug but they were quick to send one. Not one complaint since.

    You could go all out and post a pic (pix) of the new beverage bottles next to something you just cooked.  LMAO.

    Actually I can't even post a pix of the bottles when they arrive. My rotary dial landline phone doesn't have a camera.

    That’s a great combo, we took the same set up on a two week road trip this past summer.  The 65 kept ice 3 or so days, even though it stayed in the car in LA, TX, and NM in July.  The 30 fit perfectly behind the drivers seat and kept us in ice cold Gatorade and water in Big Bend.

    HAHA!!!! FARKING WIN!!  I had ordered the 145 like 2 months ago and still no shipment.... I see this. Cancelled my order and reordered and saved over $100!!!  I'll get it sometime next year probably but I don't care! Went ahead and got a 110 too so I'll have the full family.

    I ordered a few of the drinking lids for those bottles and I really like them.   They were cheap.

    I also ordered the 140L duffel, it's a tank is waterproof.

    how water resistant is the duffle

    how water resistant is the duffle
    Material is waterproof.  It's not a dry-bag.  The zipper is protected from rain by an overlapping fabric flap.

    Yep, as @nolaegghead says above.  Thicker, much better quality than the white and blue ones found in the sporting goods stores/boat shops around here.  Don’t set it down with the flap facing forward if you’re going to be getting a bunch of spray.  For me, the biggest thing isn’t spray, it’s the bottom as water washes through the boat.

    one medium grey duffle on order, the larges are out of stock now. this time of year im peeling off layers thru the day on the boat as the temp climbs from 30 into the 70's, the spring will be the test
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 26,669
    If it's made from the same stuff as the soft cooler, it's really durable.  The sun will fade it some (I've left my soft cooler outside for weeks on end).  I always bring the soft cooler for cold beverages on the boat and just about everywhere - it's my "go to" cooler.  It gets severe abuse and it's held up fine.  No holes, amazingly.

    @nolaegghead , which cooler do you have above?

    I'd like a soft cooler that'll hold 18 cans, along with ice (or ice packs) and a sandwich.  Doesn't that sound like a nice day of fishing? :)

    Anyway, I did see their capacity chart, but would like to know what it actually holds.  Often the sizing doesn't account for ice packs and snacks.  I'm thinking of something I can toss in a kayak, canoe or a back-seat in the car for road trips.  Not too big, but I'm annoyed with my current medium size coolers that I struggle to put 7 bottles of beer in (its always the 7th...)

    Thanks for the tip.  I think I'm between the SoftPack 20 or 30.
