Sticks and stones may break my bones, but Zika will never hurt me! Introducing the Mom Net! The perfect private tent to shelter Mom from the sun, the rain, the flies, and the mosquitos as she attends every single one of her kid's soccer games, cheering the loudest and ringing her cowbell the hardest, even when the team gets shut out and little Everett doesn't see more than 3 minutes off the bench. Which is just about every game.

The personal pop-up screen tent sets up to its full 33" x 33" x 52.5" glory in mere seconds. You can probably even do it one-handed, to keep the other one free for handing out orange slices and high-fives. It weighs just 1.8 pounds and includes a 19" diameter carry bag for easy schlepping across the park when it turns out the idiot league coordinators double booked your 7-8 field with the 11-12s.

Ever the versatile accessory, this tent can also serve as a penalty box for parents who drop the F bomb or rush the field when they think the ref made a bad call.

Muchas danke to Oh Gizmo!
