Most of the items you’ll receive are licensed products – with a couple Fanchest exclusives.

Sidney Crosby Shirt – Value $19 on Amazon

The Penguins shirt features their caption Sidney Crosby. It’s a 90/10 cotton/polyester blend with a simple design – I love it.

Penguins Winter Hat – Value $22 on Amazon

The second wearable item is a fantastic winter hat featuring the new (old) black and gold!

It’s really warm and cozy – perfect for the recent frigid temperatures.

Game Used Stick Bottle Opener – Value $14

How cool is this item? Requip’d is partnered with 26 NHL teams in North America to upcycle game use sticks into new products.

This is a fun gift for any hockey fan – and I love that the one I received was even black and gold!

Penguins Tumbler – Value $14.99

They include a Penguins tumbler! I love these types of mugs – they keep your drink warm or cold while protecting your hands.

The design is great, too – I was happy to see that the products are featuring the return to the classic black and gold color scheme and not the Vegas gold.

City Prints Arena Coasters (2 Pack) – Value $10-15?

The value is really a total guess. The coasters aren’t felt or cardboard – they seem to be a thicker plastic, so I think these will hold up nicely with frequent use.

As a frequent attendee to the games, I can verify that this is the seat map of the PPG Paints Arena – home of the Penguins!

Verdict: As a Penguins fan myself, I was excited to hear that they now had Penguin Fanchests! My value comes to right around $80 – which is really good for the $59 price point. I also thought they did a great job curating this one – I liked it more than the Steelers crate and loved the game used stick bottle opener!

What did you think of the PIttbsurgh Penguins Fanchest?

  1. I wish they had Philadelphia teams.

  2. I’m so bummed that I didn’t know about this, and now it’s sold out. =( We live in Pittsburgh and would have loved to get this box. The bottle opener looks awesome!

  3. Oh my gosh this is awesome! I NEED the rangers version! That used game stick bottle opener is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while!

  4. Wish they had the teams I actually care about ☹️ the items look neat and would make a great gift.

  5. I just wanted to give a shout out for recommending fanchest for a holiday gift on your website. I bought my dad the Blackhawks one for Christmas & I don’t think it will disappoint him at all! I received the same items you did only in the blackhawks version & was so impressed with the value of the box for what I paid, which was much less then the $59 thanks to cyber Monday. I would recommend this company to anybody who is a sports fan & wants some unique items.

    • That’s good to hear! Thanks for following our site!

  6. I never heard of these, this is awesome! I wish it wasn’t sold out…
