Soft coolers are ideal for toting food and drinks for the day without committing to a larger hard cooler. Easy to pack and load in the car, the RTIC Soft Pack 20 Cooler features up to 2 inches of close-cell foam insulation, providing much of the cooling performance of a hard model with the convenience of a soft-sided cooler.

When it comes to ice retention, its hard to beat Rotomolded coolers. They’re fantastic for multi-day trips, but sometimes you just need enough capacity to hold post-ride snacks and drinks. While we own and have tested a number of soft coolers, we haven’t been impressed much with how well they can retain ice.
Our testers found the build feels solid, and that it aptly does the job of keeping things cold. It also has the benefit of being watertight, making it suitable for use on SUP (stand up paddleboard) and other waterbased activities.
We’ve used a number of coolers ranging in price points, and while this seems obvious, we found a direct correlation to the thickness of the cooler walls and ice retention. There also seems to be a sweet spot with price points as well, and at about $80, the Soft Pack represents a solid value.
