Summer is Coming. And that means sun, surf and sweltering heat. Of course summer also means lots of fun days outside either at the seaside or by the pool. Prepare yourselves for this summer. Check out GetdatGadget’s gear guide for squeezing out every glorious bit of fun this summer.
With the LoungePac Beach Lounger, you will be the envy of everyone at the beach. It transforms from a stroller luggage form to an unbelievable beach lounge chair in just 10 seconds. It has a huge umbrella to keep out the sun, 2 cooler bags for drinks to keep you hydrated, a tote bag for other necessities, a pillow and built-in speakers with amplifiers.
For a day out in the sun, the ideal sound system to bring along is the Solar Powered Eton Rukus BT Speaker, a wireless Bluetooth speaker. Its battery lasts 8 hours but to extend your fun, it is also solar powered. Its rugged design is built to withstand a day at the beach. It won’t complain when exposed to both water and sand. Best of all, if your phone runs low on juice, the Eton Rukus doubles up as a battery charger.
There is nothing like an ice cool drink to cool you down and to refresh yourself on a hot summer day. To keep your drinks cool all day, pop in a few ice sticks into a drinking bottle. The ice stick flexible tray makes ice cubes in the shape of thin sticks that can easily fit through the mouths of most drinking bottles.
You know what else feels great on a hot summer day? Frozen pops! And the Zoku Quick Pop Maker is the best gadget for making them. When Zoku says quick, they really mean it. Just remove the Zoku Quick Pop Maker from the freezer, pour in your favorite flavored pop recipe and it will freeze up nicely in about 6 – 7 minutes.
The other essential summer beverage is of course the ice cold beer. Nobody wants a warm beer. The Spin Chill Beverage Chiller makes sure that you don’t ever have to settle for a warm beer again. Just attach a can of beer to the Spin Chill, spin it in an ice box for about a minute for a nice ice cold beer.
Beach sand is great but not on the beach mat. To keep the sand only where you want it, bring along the CGear Sand-Free Multimat. It has a patented technology that acts like a one way filter for sand. Just wipe across its surface with your hand and all the sand particles fall through the mat leaving your mat sand-free.
The Eton Rukus is great for listening to your tunes while you are chilling out but what if you are going for a spot of swimming, surfing or diving? This is where the Swimming Diving MP3 Music Player comes in. You secure it by strapping it to your swimming goggles or it can also be attached to your arm with the included armband.
Spend the day at the beach without worrying about sand getting into your bag and on everything else in the bag. The Shake Women’s Tote has a special flap at the bottom of the tote. Open up the flap, give the bag a few good shakes and the sand in the bag falls out through the mesh at the bottom. The Shake Women’s Tote is made from specially coated canvas that repels water and has soft cotton straps.
While it is great spending the day out in the sun, wouldn’t it be great to come back to a soothing air conditioned home? The Aros Smart Window Air Conditioner makes it possible without putting a dent on your electricity bill. It is smart enough to know when you are about to reach home and switches on the air conditioner accordingly. It even adjusts the temperature according to the weather.
The Wow Sports First Class Lounge is truly first class and the ultimate in pool lounge luxury. It has a high backrest, cockpit style seat, 2 armrests with drink holder and ample storage space for your necessities, water vent to keep the seat cool and a floating footrest. Lazing in the pool doesn’t get any better than this.
How in the world are you going to haul all the great gear that we have recommended? The Mac Sports Collapsible Wagon is your beach mule, lugging along 150 lbs of gear easily. You can load all your gear plus your kid in it. When collapsed, the wagon only takes up about 8 inches of space in your car trunk.
While the Aros Smart Air Conditioner takes care of cooling you at home, the Handy Cooler Mini Air Conditioner keeps you cool while on-the-go. The Handy Cooler uses evaporative cooling for cooling down the air. Water needs to be added constantly to maintain the cooling effect. Runs on both batteries and on USB power.
The Portable Sun and Weather Shelter is the ideal shelter from both the sun and the rain. It is a beach umbrella, a sun tent and rain shelter all rolled into one. It literally takes just seconds to set up. When collapsed, it is about 4.5 feet long and stores in an easy-to-carry bag with a shoulder strap. You know you need one.
