Chase Hartmanwrote a review of Backcountry Getaway Tailgate Pad on August 30, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Let's be real; there's a lot of tailgate pads on the market. With each one having their own strengths and weaknesses, it's hard to know which will be right for you. To a certain extent, it comes down to personal preference.
This is the best tailgate pad I've used, plain and simple. It's sturdy, built with the smaller details in mind, durable, and has a few key features that I'm excited about. The notches on the top of the pad keep bikes secure and in place, which is especially nice when you're ripping up a dirt road to a trailhead. I'm also a big fan of the internal pocket where I keep a couple of small tools and a bike lock. It's also pretty clear that it's built to last so I'm looking forward to the many shuttle laps and other bike adventures to come.
