1. The Skincom Sun Shade

Recently I had a soccer mom call to place an order for one of these Skincom sun shades.  She explained to me that she had been using another brand of shade tent that promised easy operation.  Unfortunately they were much to heavy for a single soccer mom to carry along with other gear from the mini van to the field and then she explained that set up was really more than one person could handle.  She actually saw the Skincom sun shade and called to order it. 

I’m surprised to say that I had not thought of this product for soccer moms until that customer brought it to my attention.  Finally a small shade tent that not only comes in a lightweight easy to carry package but can be adjusted as the sun travels overhead.

For soccer moms in hot climates or for those who have kids that play in summer leagues the Skincom shade is not only an inexpensive way to give the sun the slip for a while it can actually help with fatigue and hydration.  The Skincom sun shade is under 0, covers a 6′ x 4′ area, sets up in seconds and you can set up more than one to cover the team bench.  Here’s the specs from the catalog for more info.

Go Green With Eco-Friendly Sports Bottles

Go Green With Eco-Friendly Sports Bottles

Medical professionals and health care experts always tell us to hydrate and that is to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Most of us are all on the go whether at school or at work and even at home. Most people today are always on the move here and there so it’s easy for us to not drink the recommended amount of water daily. That is why most people carry water bottles with them so that they can quench their thirst even while waiting in line at the bank or at the supermarket or just sitting in the office. Today, water bottles not only come in trendy designs and cool utility functions, they are also made to be eco-friendly. Eco-friendly sports bottles are increasingly becoming popular as they are reliable, durable and green compared to plastic water bottles.

Some of the most trusted brands in eco-friendly sports bottles is Nalgene. Nalgene is a US made, reasonably priced sport bottle that is ever popular among sportsmen women, as well as among office workers and soccer moms. Nalgene has a new line of sports bottles that are BPA free. Among the bottles, the Tritan Wide-Mouth Everyday bottle is the hottest selling in the line and it can hold enough water to keep you hydrated on a coast-to-coast flight or for a full day at the office. The mouth of the bottle is large enough to accommodate ice cubes and Nalgene sells a variety of accessories such as pop-up sports cap. The bottle retails are .50.

Another innovative design in sports bottles that are environmentally friendly are the Camelbak Better bottles. These bottles are designed to not spill thanks to its “flip, bite-n-sip” design, even when the flip lock is left open. These types of bottles are ideal for situations where there is a lot of movement such as driving or drinking while on the move. The Camelbak is also made with BPA free plastic and has a sporty design which comes with a bottle-top loop that can be clipped with a carabiner to a backpack. Consumers have a choice in colors and patterns such as argyle and hounds tooth for a more urban feel. This bottle retails for to depending on its liter.

Some companies have taken the humble sports bottle to a whole new level by incorporating hip designs and cool extra features and the Sigg Traveler takes the cup. Sigg, is considered hip as it is the popular choice among celebrities and eco-stars such as the Dave Matthews Band. Sigg is from a Swiss company and they have been in the business of making lightweight, recycled-aluminum bottles for a hundred years. The Sigg is lightweight and has a coating that prevents aluminum from secreting the contents. Up to its name, the Sigg Traveler is uber- trendy and lightweight and comes two sizes and a variety colors. The designs range from classic to simple steel. Unlike the Nalgene Tritan Wide Mouth, the Sigg Traveller has a small opening that cant fit in ice cubes but is great for warm beverages as the sports bottle is metal. Sigg offers a carrying pouch and even a new hot-beverage Sigg as well as a specially designed brush and cleaning tablets for cleaning. The price retails at .99 (0.6 liter); .99 (1 liter).
