This week as we prepare for my son’s first baseball tournament of the season we are in midst of an epic snow storm with another one on the way. Luckily, this first tournament is indoors. A few weeks later we’ll be outside, bundled up and huddled in front of a portable heater. By the end of the season though, we’ll be trying to stay cool in the heat. This is the life of softball and baseball fans in the Pacific Northwest. The weather during the season runs the full gamut! Over the years we are slowly learning how to stay comfortable during long days at the ballpark, no matter what the weather brings.
I recently added a MistyMate MistPro 3TM to my baseball/softball essentials. It can get REALLY hot sitting in the stands during the summer months and it’s hard to stay cool. A MistyMate is a high quality personal mister. Ditch the cheap spray bottle attached to a plastic fan and get an ultra-fine cooling mist from the MistPro 3.
Perhaps the best thing about the MistPro 3 is that it operates without batteries, motors, electronics or fans while delivering a high-pressure mist with virtually NO moving parts. The last thing I need is to remember to charge another device or bring a back-up battery. I love that this thing is always ready to go, just by adding water. A single fill can last up to 4 hours! The mister is ultraslim and lightweight making it very portable. In fact, the 3 oz capacity means that it is even TSA compliant meaning you can bring it on an airplane!
While ideal for sports, the mister would also be great for a day at the beach, workouts any time of year (I get SO hot on the treadmill!) and for outdoor concerts. Really, it’s great for any time you may get over heated! It’s super easy to use too. Just open the top and fill with distilled water to the max fill line then replace the lid. Twist the base to release the pump handle and pump a few times to build pressure. It doesn’t take much! Then twist the base/pump back into the bottom and it’s ready to use! Press the button on top to dispense and ultrafine mist that can cool the ambient air by up to 30 degrees! You’ll instantly feel cooler and more comfortable.
The MistPro 3TM comes in several colors so each member of the family can have their own. You can find out more about MistyMate and this product by visiting www.mistymate.com.
