Guard yourself from foul weather or flying beer cans with this easy-to-attach shelter. Ropes tie the polyester tarp to the rear roof rack of any mid-to-large SUV; a system of poles keeps it stable. Once set up, the Kelty Tailgater IPA provides 46 square feet of floor space – enough for most of your tailgating gear – and has several internal pockets for storing any accoutrements.
