12 Fun & Useful Items for Off-Road Camping That You Didn’t Know About

Jeeping and camping go hand-in-hand; it’s a fact! There are obvious essentials you must take when going on an off-roading adventure, but when we looked online for a list of unique products that are cool to take off-roading, we couldn’t find a single list that was both fun and functional. Naturally, we set out to make one. With that said, let us know if you see anything you like below.

1. Hitch Vault

HitchSafe HS7000 Key Vault

Keeping track of your keys is a tricky task for anybody. It’s safe to say that off-roading, hiking, or kayaking overcomplicates hanging onto the important stuff. This handy gadget attaches to your hitch and protects your essentials. If you’re doing it right, a wallet isn’t practical! [ Link to HitchSafe HS7000 Key Vault ]

Just don't go muddin' with it!

2. Exhaust Jack


Barricade 3 Ton Exhaust Jack

It’s no secret that the factory bottle jacks that come with Jeeps don’t exactly get the job done. This one is better and only takes up a little room! [ Link to Barricade 3 Ton Exhaust Jack ]


3. Drinker Beer and "Soda" Guzzler Helmet



They say you think better with a cool head... Well, look no further! This doesn’t need an explanation as to why it is great. Look at it. We’ve been daydreaming about this product since Happy Gilmore came out.

You need this. Everyone needs this. You can be drinking beer and building a fire, you can be drinking beer and grilling out, you can be drinking beer and doing ANYTHING.

**Just don’t drink and drive - unless it’s a soda or Monster ** [ Link to Red Drinker Beer and Soda Guzzler Helmet ]


4. Waterproof Phone Case


Look, Lifeproof cases are cool and all. But they’re hardly inexpensive, and they muffle the sound of your phone. This guy is about half the price, doesn’t mess with sound, and provides all of the benefits of a Lifeproof case AND you can remove your phone from it easily. Perfect for off-roading trips where you want your phone temporarily protected against the elements and secured on your belt. Perfect if you drive topless, or ford streams!

5. A tool box that has convenience items…

Yes, you probably already have some sort of tool box that contains all of your essential tools. But let’s get another one for convenience items!

Main compartment:

  • Spatulas, bottle openers, tongs, can openers, toothpicks, wooden skewers, basting brush, mini flashlight

Middle compartment:

  • Trash bags, paper towels, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, plastic zip bags, sharpie, masking tape

Bet you didn’t think of that. YOU’RE WELCOME. I bet you also didn’t think of this next one…


6. Off-road Commode



In case you didn’t want to invest in the first item on this list, we have another hitch decoration that will have you crying tears of joy… and maybe laughter.

Best part is, it’s camouflage… so only YOU’LL know it’s there! Don’t know how it’s used? Here’s a demonstration:


Well done, Bobby. Well done. [ Link to Off-Road Commode ]


7. Camping Hoodies


Campfire Hoodies

Did you know there are hoodies that comes with built in a bottle opener AND a built in koozie?!?!? Best of all, it's American made. Need we say more? [ Link to Camping and Tailgate Hoodies ]


8. Portable Battery

This portable battery is great for off-roading trips that extend overnight. You can charge it with a car charger, or wall outlet, and it can help you recharge anything that uses an USB based charger.


9. Pocket Shower

Sea to Summit Pocket Shower

Yes, everyone takes pride in the dirt and mud he/she collects when off-roading. But let’s leave the mud on the Jeep - where it belongs. If you’re staying in the wilderness overnight, this nifty gadget gives you a quick rinse after a day’s worth of grime and allows you to spend the night cleaner and more comfortable.

10. Beer Belt

A refill for your beer helmet. Another hands-free way to drink beer. A cool accessory to put on your hip. It can be whatever you want it to be. [ Link to GreatGadgets 1880 Genuine Leather Classic Beer Holster ]

11. The "Coolest" Cooler

Forget everything you thought you knew about coolers. This one makes all of the other guys pale in comparison. Blender, speakers, charger, LED lid light, cutting board, plates, wine opener, bottle opener, bungee cord, accessories, the key to solving world hunger - it has all of it. Okay. Not the last one. [ Link to Coolest Cooler ]


12. An Even BETTER Beer Belt

Camouflage Beer Belt


Are you noticing a theme here? This is the world’s coolest fanny pack. Now you can have that six-pack you’ve always wanted. Why do all of these promo pictures feature Modelo? We’re not endorsing that beer, just the package that’s holding it. [ Link to Camouflage Beer Belt, Holds 6 Cans or Bottles ]
