by Kaylan Mackinnon on Aug 09, 2023
When embarking on outdoor adventures, reliable and durable gear storage is essential. One of the most renowned brands for high-quality and reliability is Yeti, particularly their GoBox 60 which offers top-notch performance and versatility.
If you're a fan of Yeti, then you'll want to check out the RUX 70L for all your camping and traveling needs. Let’s take a closer look at these rugged storage solutions to help you decide which one best suits your outdoor needs.
Design and Construction: The RUX 70L features a sleek and modern soft-shell exterior design that can withstand rough handling and water exposure. Its smooth lines and robust build make it a stylish and practical choice for outdoor enthusiasts. Made from fully waterproof 840D TPU coated Nylon fabric, the RUX 70L is built to last a lifetime outdoors. It has collapsible corners, allowing it to be rigid when needed, but with the ability to collapse down to 3” when not in use.
In contrast, the Yeti GoBox 60 has a more traditional cooler-like design, with thick, roto-molded construction that ensures incredible durability and superior insulation.
Storage Capacity: The RUX 70L provides ample storage space for your camping gear, clothing, and other essentials, with a capacity of 70 liters. RUX Components can be used with the RUX 70L, making it extremely versatile. For instance, the RUX Bag fits perfectly in half of the 70L, allowing you to organize your gear better. The RUX Pocket can be easily attached to the inside or outside of the 70L to provide an extra 3 liters of grab-and-go storage. It’s also the perfect pocket for your iPad when you need to work on-the-go. Whereas the Yeti GoBox 60 has a 60-liter capacity, limiting you to what you can bring on your travels.
Portability: Portability is crucial when you're on the go. The RUX 70L is equipped with modular carry straps that can attach anywhere around the RUX, offering limitless carry options such as backpack-mode, over the shoulder, and tote carry. One of the best features of The RUX is that weighs less than 5lbs when empty, whereas the Yeti GoBox 60 weighs upwards of 17lbs. On the other hand, the Yeti GoBox 60 features molded-in handles, which enable carrying by hand or with the help of a partner.
Versatility: The Yeti GoBox 60 is excellent for gear storage, but the RUX 70L takes versatility to a whole new level. It is designed as a multi-purpose container that can be used as a dry storage box, cooler, or even as your favourite camera equipment carrier.
Price: Both the RUX 70L and Yeti GoBox 60 are premium storage solutions that are similarly priced. However, the RUX 70L provides excellent value for its features, performance, versatility, and warranty. And you want to know the best part?
