Sports are one of life’s great pleasures come rain or shine, but if you’re not actively partaking, then a little shelter from the elements can be a welcome respite. Weather pods are small pop-up tents that were created with sports fans in mind and are a great asset to spectators on golf courses, soccer pitches, football fields, or indeed any open-air sporting event. They are also enjoyed by people engaged in all sorts of outdoor activities, including music festivals, picnics, and trips to the beach.
One model in this ranking, the Under the Weather StadiumPod, slips over the user’s torso to shelter their upper body as they sit in the bleachers. Some, including the Under the Weather MyPodXL and Onnetila Pop-up, are more conventional and are intended for a single person to sit inside, with plenty of extra room to accommodate a chair, gear, and even a cooler. Others are more social by design and can seat multiple people. These include the EasyGoProducts CoverU, Fofana Pod All Weather, and the Under the Weather MyPodDoubleX.
Weather pods are also available with mesh screens. These are ideal for those prioritizing shade and insect protection over waterproofing, although most come with a canopy to protect against light showers. These include the SportPod BugPod and the Under the Weather MeshPod, and they are a popular choice among fishermen as they exclude drafts and keep the bugs at bay during long spells on the riverbank. One hybrid solution is the Fofana Pod All Weather, which features double mesh and plastic windows, providing ventilation, insect screen, and water resistance in a single option.
