Tailgating is always excellent in the abstract, but it can be messy and uncomfortable in practice. Not unlike executing a West Coast offense or a cover two defense, pulling off a movable feast requires planning and strategy. With a few pre-game adjustments and some new free-agent acquisitions, you won't even want to leave the parking lot.
Yeti Roadie 20
The 5.2-gallon, 20-inch-wide, 16-pound Yeti Roadie 20 might seem like overkill, but it's equipped to handle any situation, from the rowdy crowds at Ralph Wilson Stadium to the rugged landscape of your favorite car camping destination. It can fit 12 long necks or 16 cans, features a stainless steel handle that locks in place for easier carrying, and rubber ball and socket joints that seal it tighter than the Seahawks defense. Its 2.5-inch polystyrene insulation layer keeps drinks cold and ice solid for nearly three days and, unlike most other coolers, it never sweats, so your tailgating spot will stay puddle free.
