Additionally, the Milwaukee Tool Packout Cooler is great option, which sports five storage compartments, has a food-grade leak-proof liner, holds ice for up to 24 hours and comes with a generous lifetime warranty. Milwaukee also offers a traditional hardtop cooler, so skip the Styrofoam flunkies from the local grocery store and add this to your arsenal of durable, multi-functional food and drink storage units.

Speakers for Tailgating

The most seasoned tailgaters know that you absolutely need a few necessities to get the social started. Fortunately, NAPA sells a plethora of multi-use speakers that you can use long after your tailgating party. For example, the B-Iconic Bluetooth Powerhouse Speaker is great for tailgating. It’s a small and easy-to-carry speaker for music or pre-game sportscasts. It’s wireless, fashionable and has universal compatibility with tablets, smartphones and other Bluetooth devices, enabling you to use all of them at your party and for your convenience. This particular unit lasts up to 7 hours without needing recharged.

Additionally, you want to stay prepared for every scenario when tailgating, so consider purchasing the B-Iconic Beast Bluetooth Speaker, which is water-resistant and totally portable. The B-Iconic IPX4 Bluetooth Speaker is waterproof as well, but also sports a built-in power bank, which allows you to charge your phone the while listening to music.

Outdoor Heaters & Cooling Fans for Tailgating

Now that you have the food, drink and music covered, there are a few more items you may want to consider purchasing to stay comfortable in any type of weather. We all know that there’s a lot that goes into entertaining friends and family, so NAPA has you covered!

Are you anticipating cold weather? Grab yourself a few Portable Buddy Heaters or the indoor/outdoor Heat Hog unit, which is another affordable option to keep you and your guests warm. NAPA has a host of portable heaters, so find what suits your fancy here because the odds are you’ll have several uses for whatever you decide to buy throughout the changing seasons. Betting on nearly unbearable heat? Add the Portacool 510 Evaporative Cooler to your soiree, which will keep you and your guest cool. If your car, truck or SUV has an external plug or if you happen to have a generator you plan on toting along, then this option can work for you.

Sometimes, a simple awning is enough to keep you shaded and cool or even protect you from the rain and snow. The NAPA Vehicle Awning is easy to install and you can use it alongside any car, truck, van or SUV with a little finagling. It measures 8 ft by 8 ft and features heady-duty polyester fabric with UV50+ protection to shield you from all the elements.

Truck Tailgating Accessories

Suppose you are lucky enough to have a truck at your disposal for your tailgating event. In that case, you are in for a wonderful time because there are really exciting truck tailgating accessories that you can purchase to outdo everyone around you this football season.

The Napier Link Ground Tent is specifically made for trucks and is absolutely great for keeping the bugs out and offering your guests a private tailgating experience. You can also use this tent year-round. It incorporates a large door and three mesh-covered windows plus has a floor, which ensures you all stay completely dry and away from ground critters. It’s an option that is especially kid friendly and comes with an enticing 1-year warranty. NAPA has several types of vehicle tents available to suit your specific needs.

Don’t forget the chairs! Everybody is sure to fight for the foldable Zero Gravity Chair, so pick up a few and enjoy the comfort of lounging in style thanks to the comfy headrest and option of leaning all the way back into a sleeping position with help from safe locking levers, which hold the chair in position. You might consider the more conventional Maxi Trac Folding Chair, which is ultralight and comes with a carrying strap.

NAPA also offers a plethora of truck cargo organizing related items to safely store and transport all of your gear. The TruXedo Truck Luggage Expedition Cargo Bag is an all-weather organizer offering 8 cubic feet of space and incorporating hard inserts to divide into multiple compartments. However, if you are filling up the entire truck bed, then any of our popular tonneau covers or even the Rightline Gear Truck Bed Cargo Net are possible options. You also might need extra space in the bed after unpacking, so a truck bed extender could certainly come in handy. Additionally, make it easy on yourself to get in and out of the backend of your truck with the Bestop TrekStep Tailgate Step or AMP Research BedStep, which both pull down and flip back up when you are done.
