Sure, a nice floppy hat will keep your face protected from the hot sun, but the Sport-Brella ($60) will keep you (and several of your friends or family members) safe from just about anything Mother Nature decides to dish out. It may be touted as an umbrella, but at eight feet wide, it's bigger than a few camping tents we've slept in. Stake out your spot at the beach, athletic field, or concert lawn and stick it into the ground. Thanks to the vents and windows, you'll be cocooned without feeling stuffy or stuck.
