Growing up in Colorado, I learned to love the outdoors. I love to get outside any chance I can. Thankfully, going to school in Boulder means I get to do that a lot. My favorite thing to do up at school (if it is warm enough to do so) is to grab a sandwich from the dining hall, a blanket, and a frisbee and head out to Farrand Field (pictured left). If you go to CU, you know Farrand Field as the place to relax, get some homework done (or try to), and toss the frisbee or kick around a soccer ball. When it’s sunny out in Boulder, you are guaranteed to see students there, and usually more than just a few.
So in honor of Farrand Field, I thought I’d step up the Farrand Field Grab-n-Go picnic up a notch. Instead of pre-made sandwhiches and oreos, why not go gourmet? eBags has plenty of picnic gear to make your summertime picnic easy. And if you live in Colorado, there are plenty of open spaces and we are right in the backyard of Rocky Mountain National Park. If you aren’t from around here, you can find a national park near you by clicking here.
With the long 4th of July weekend approaching, it’s the perfect time to head out for a picnic. Grab one of our picnic baskets, pack it up with goodies, and head out to the perfect spot. If you are unfamiliar with eBags’ picnic selection, know that we also offer rolling coolers, soft-sided coolers, as well as 80+ options for wine and champagne carriers. eBags has everything you could need for your picnic adventure, even cup holders for the grass (shown left). So pack up some wine and cheese for a picturesque picnic, or a few cans of Pepsi and a George Foreman, and head outside for your picnic. We hope you enjoy the long weekend!
As the temperatures in Denver rise, escaping to the mountains for a weekend getaway sounds more and more appealing. This weekend, my familiy and I are headed up to Grand Lake, Colorado. My dad built a cabin up there when he was 25 by bribing his friends with steak dinners and cold beer in return for some hard labor on the house. I grew up at the cabin and see it as my home, so I love those weekends we can drive through Rocky Mountain National Park, sit out on the patio sippin’ lemonade, and enjoy the cooler temperatures and beautiful views.
So, on this blazing hot Friday, I thought I’d bring you a little taste of the mountains, and suggest a few bags to bring with you if you are planning a mountain getaway soon.
First is this cross-body bag from The Sak, shown at right. I love the cross-body style because it is easy to carry and it keeps all your essential belongings from car keys to your wallet to sunscreen and chapstick all within reach. This bag is a great size and I love this colorful pattern. I would use this bag when walking around the town because it’s easy to take along anywhere you go.
This weekend, I’m planning on going hiking with my mom. We love the short but scenic hike to Adams Falls (you should definitely go if you are ever in Grand Lake), but we also love doing day-long hikes up longer trails. Although my mom and I usually pack an old dusty backpack with a waterbottle and some trail mix, a hiking pack would definitely be helpful.
We offer a variety of hiking backpacks for long trips and hydration packs which feature a reservoir of water. My favorite is the CamelBak Octane. This lightweight pack is large enough to fit a sweatshirt or rain jacket, a few snacks, some sunscreen, and of course, plenty of water.
If you’re not a hiker, maybe you’d like to enjoy the summer sunshine out on the lake. My family loves to take the boat out to these small islands on Shadow Mountain Lake, bring some burgers and hot dogs for the grill, and relax in the shade of the trees. Now, for this kind of adventure, you need a cooler. And, surprisingly, a cooler counts as a bag, which means eBags has them. We carry many rolling coolers and softsided coolers, even picnic baskets for all your summer picnic needs. Specifically, I’d like to highlight the Polar Bear line of coolers. This cooler will keep ice in 100 degree weather for 24 hours! Unbelievable. This cooler is perfect for our day trips out on the boat.
Of course, we have many more bags that might be useful, including duffel bags, hunting and fishing gear, and even Dry Pak brand cases to keep your cell phones, GPS devices, and cameras from getting water damage. I hope these great eBags products can help you enjoy these great summer weekends to come.
With Memorial Day around the corner, barbecue season is upon us. It’s time to get out the grill, stock up on snacks and beverages, and invite the friends over. In addition to these items, there are additional BBQ essentials that can help make your next cookout a smashing success. Check out some of our favorites - many of which are BBQ essentials you never knew you needed.
| Picnic Time BBQ Apron Tote: This apron and BBQ tool holder in one is perfect for the grill master in all of us. The set includes the tote that unfolds into an apron, spatula, tongs, fork, and even a barbecue mitt and chef’s hat. It’s the perfect way to keep all your tools within easy reach while protecting your clothing from the occasional splatter or spill. At just $40, it also makes a great Father’s Day gift.
|Picnic Plus Essex Dish Caddy: Food is a necessity at any barbecue, but so are plates and silverware. Afterall, you need something to hold, cut, and serve the food. Instead of simply stacking plates and eating utensils at the end of a table, why not display them in a lovely dish caddy? The Picnic Plus Essex Dish Caddy accommodates a complete table setting for 4 people (perfect for the family barbecue) including 4 hand woven willow baskets for utensils and a strong steel frame for holding plates and napkins.
| Picnic Plus Tub Cooler: A cooler is a must for keeping drinks cool at barbecues, but here’s one that is just a bit more handy than your average plastic bin. The Picnic Plus Tub Cooler holds over 72 cans, is fully insulated, and has a leakproof liner. It sets up and folds in seconds and keeps cold beverages within arms reach.
|Picnic Plus Beverage Can Holders: Picture this: you’re playing a great game of badminton and you suddenly find that you are thirsty. Do you stop to run over to a table across the yard to get a drink? Well, with the Picnic Plus Beverage Can Holder, you don’t need to. This can holder is designed to sit in the grass and hold your soda can or glass bottle so that it is never far when you’re enjoying games or relaxing on the lawn. The Picnic Plus Beverage Can Holders come in a set of 2 for just $24.99 - a great deal for a product that solves such a common problem.
| Picnic Plus Wine Glass Lanyard Set of 2: Finally a solution to not having enough hands to hold your drink and your food. These wine glass holders are designed to be worn around your neck so your drink is close at hand but your hands are free to eat food, shake hands, fill up your plate at the buffet, and more. Great for parties, wine tasting events, and of course barbecues.
|Picnic Plus Cooladio Picnic Pak Cooler: It’s a cooler. It’s a radio. It’s a Cooladio! Yep, you heard right. This bag is a cooler and an AM/FM radio in one. The radio also has an audio input and included cable for iPods, MP3 players, and CD players. Now you can take your drinks and your tunes with you to any barbecue whether it’s in your backyard or the local park.
Football season is in full swing and there’s nothing like tailgating to make the game a true experience. If you plan to stake your claim on some prime parking lot real estate and root for your favorite team, you’ll be needing tailgating supplies like team jersey, cooler, radio, chairs, and grill.
Did you know that eBags carries many of these supplies? Yep, we sure do. You can find chairs, bbq sets, coolers, licensed NFL sports fan gear, and more from brands like Kelty, Picnic Plus, Littlearth, and Picnic Time. Check out our tailgating supplies categories below:
