Looking for ways to stay cool this summer while still enjoying your backyard? This patio umbrella has a twist that lets it offer more than simple shade. It features three built-in nozzles (located on the umbrella’s support ribs) that spray a gentle mist down to cool off anyone underneath.
A flexible conduit runs from each nozzle down the rust-resistant nine-foot aluminum pole to a hose connector, where you can plug in any standard garden hose. In addition, the 11-foot canopy provides 95 square feet of shade, so you can hide from the sun on those hot days. The canopy is made from weather-resistant polyester that should give you years of use.
The price is $199 from Hammacher Schlemmer:
