How can you enjoy the big game if you’re freezing in the seats? You can’t. But, you can stay snuggly and cozy with one of these brilliant blankets the next time you hit the outdoor stadium. Keep them in the car and take them out for tailgating. Or, throw them over your shoulder and take them straight into the stadium with you (but be sure to check the stadium’s bag policy first).
Stadium blankets are designed to be warm, waterproof and windproof, in most cases, so you’ll be protected from all the elements the big game can throw at you. They’re the perfect addition to your stadium survival kit.
Stadium blankets make great emergency blankets, too. Keeping one in your trunk means you’re always covered if you’re stranded on the side of the road.
