From the newest camping stuff for sale to funky accessories to upgraded staples, you’ll find something to take your tailgate to the next level this year. Here are our picks for this tailgating season’s must-have gear.
Everyone knows that Yeti is the premiere cooler brand. That is because of its impressive performance. This year, Yeti released a limited edition line of coolers called the “Nordic Collection.” Inspired by the frigid temperatures of this Northern country, the coolers have the high-performance capabilities the brand is known for with some added features. They are available in Nordic Blue and Nordic Purple (perfect for Vikings fans). You can find the collection on their website or anywhere you find camping stuff for sale.
Do not let the name fool you. This single burner portable grill is one of the most versatile grills on the market. It has a modular design that lets you transform that single burner into an all-in-one tailgate grill masterpiece. This single burner is a grill top, griddle top, pizza oven, and plancha top. No matter what you are planning to cook up at your football tailgates this portable grill will get it done. This propane grill weighs in at a light 26 pounds and folds up nicely for easy portability. It’s definitely a must-have!
Probably one of the most frustrating pieces of camping stuff for sale is a canopy. Canopies can be a beast to set up and take down. Many of them require being staked. Others require you to fill the corners with something heavy like rocks or sand. Mostly though, they are serious finger pinchers! The Stoic Slant Leg Canopy solves all of these issues. It’s a pop-up canopy that has slanted legs that don’t need to be weighted unless in heavy winds. You simply set it up and enjoy the shade!
Calling all mixologists and cocktail enthusiasts, this flask was made for you. This flask plays double dirty. It’s not just a flask that is insulated to keep your beverages cool and warm. It also doubles as a bar. That’s right, inside the flask are a strainer, muddle, and pour over. You can make any kind of cocktail you can imagine without having to bring your whole bar kit. Furthermore, this flask is ideal for making coffee or tea to keep you warm. The bottom of the flask even comes off and can double at a bowl. Buy it online or wherever you find camping stuff for sale.
Next to cornhole, beer pong has to be our favorite tailgating game! This portable beer pong table is perfect to bring to any tailgate. It’s lightweight, easy to set up, and comes with everything you need. This beer pong table is different though. It is made with a dry erase board and comes with dry erase markers. So you and your tailgating team can decorate it however you want. We love the idea of drawing the logos of the two teams playing on the board. Then invite fans of the opposing team to square off with your tailgate team. You’ll have a little healthy competition and a lot of great memories.
We love the kegs from GrowlerWerks for keeping our beers from going flat. They are also a must-have for any home brewer. GrowlerWerks has always been a great brand for tailgaters. They offer many of their beer kegs with logos from college and professional sports teams. However, the U-Keg Go was made especially for tailgaters. This portable keg is designed to keep your beverages carbonated the whole day. It’s easy to transport and very durable. It’s a definite add to your 2020 tailgate shopping list.
When it comes to tailgating, we love items that offer versatile functions. This saves us space, time planning, and hassle setting up. So when we saw this collapsible tailgate table, we had to snag it! The table has four drink holders and a center bowl you can fill with chips, popcorn, or any of your favorite snacks. Underneath is a beverage cooler that will keep all your beer cold. The table is extremely lightweight and just pops open for easy setup. This 3-in-1 tailgate table is a great option for 2022.
Speaking of furniture, if you’re ready to upgrade your chairs or just add some extra seating you have to check out this rocker. Made by GCI, this portable camping chair is extra comfy. With its rocking feature, it feels just like the La-Z-Boy recliner in your living room. It’s also perfect for tailgating. It has a built-in end table with two drink holders, a phone holder, and plenty of space for a plate piled high with your famous ribs. It is on the higher end for camping chairs, but with so many great features, it’s worth every penny.
Skip the hard-to-light match and the hand-burning Bic, and opt for something more effective. This Bison Air lighter and firestarter was designed for lighting both charcoal and propane grills. It also works great for fire pits. The long design protects your hands and arms when lighting the fire. Its cordless design makes it easy to bring to any tailgate. It uses standard lighter butane but will get your fire started much quicker. Get it on Amazon or wherever you find camping stuff for sale.
