NOTE: This is the first post in a series showcasing ridiculous road trip gear and hacks for your pleasure. Enjoy!
Sure, there’s loads of weird products and gear out there to help you have the perfect road trip or camping experience. But, there’s also tons of weird products that, let’s face it, no one really needs, but man, when you think about it, they’re pretty freaking cool.
Like this wing rack! Do I need really need this? Nah. But, I really, really want it…
The GrillPro claims that it will cook your wings without any flare ups. Using its stainless steel drip pan, the wing rack captures all the yummy drippings “to create a wonderful smoke flavor.” There’s loads you can do with those drippings too, like cooking veggies in the pan. The rack folds up for easy storage when you’re done.
VERDICT: YES PLEASE!
The See Through Canoe prides itself on being “Built Tough, Not Cheap.” They’ve been around since 2007 and are the world’s first manufacturer of the clear kayak/canoe hybrid. The canoe itself is very stable, and some people even use it for stand up paddle boarding, especially when using the LED night lights for nighttime exploring.
“The See Through Canoe ™ comes with everything you need to get out on the water safely. It has puncture proof flotation that will keep the canoe floating. It has a unique serial number engraved in the frame. It’s made out of the same polycarbonate material used in the production of bulletproof glass & weighs only 44 lbs. All components are rust proof, so it can stand up to the saltwater. This clear canoe hybrid also has a layer of U.V. protection, so it doesn’t yellow or otherwise get damaged by the sun. Not a cheap “knock off”, this is the See Through Canoe.”
VERDICT: FIND ME $1,800 AND I’M SOLD!
Finally, I present the Wyndham KTBEVDS3 Dual Tank Double Beverage Dispenser Backpack, 74 L
This bad boy is quite literally the coolest thing since sliced bread…if you consider a portable beer dispenser backpack to be cool! WHICH I DO! The dual dispenser holds 3.7 quarts of your most beloved beverage, and even comes with padded shoulder straps, so you won’t throw your back out carrying all that brew.
