The Ohnana tent is meant to keep summer music festival goers cool

Hitting up festivals this summer? Bring the Ohnana tent with you to stay cool

You may not be able to get air conditioning in your tent, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a cool night’s sleep (even in the middle of summer). Meet the Ohnana tent, the outdoor habitation that promises a seriously cool experience, in every sense of the word.

It is all thanks to two reflective coatings that are placed atop two separate layers of 170T polyester. That, the team says, allows the tent to reflect infrared light, which in turn, keeps the inside of the tent and its inhabitants cool. And not only does it block the heat, but it also blocks the harsh rays of the morning sun, so you will not be rudely awakened by light in your eyes.

Initially designed for the music festival goers who emerge in droves in the summer, the Ohnana tent wants to help you make the most out of your party (which includes sleeping off the fun from the night before). “We made this tent for people who want to make the most of their festival experience,” the Amsterdam-based Ohnana Tents team said. “With Amsterdam being the EDM capital of the world, we’re no strangers to tenting out for experiencing the best DJ performances we can witness today. Instead of waking up at the crack of dawn from uncomfortable sweating, festival goers can guarantee perfect sleep for a fun day ahead.”

According to the tent’s Kickstarter campaign, your microenvironment will actually stay 55 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than conventional tents. Moreover, the tent’s exterior is fully waterproof, so even if it rains, it won’t rain on your parade. The tent also comes with windows so that you can allow the breeze in when appropriate. And if there is no breeze to be had, rest assured that you can use the Ohnana tent’s built-in fans, which dually function as a source of light.

The Ohnana tent is also quite portable, as it folds down and comes with two straps that let you carry it like a backpack when you are ready to head home. You can grab an Ohnana tent for yourself by backing the project on Kickstarter for around $105, with an estimated shipping date later in July.

LG has a solution for smelly concertgoers at the Bonnaroo festival

If you're attending the 2018 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in June, you might be surprised to see LG Electronics at the big event. The home appliance and electronics company is holding the "LaundROO Lounge and Vintage Clothing Swap" the first event of its kind from LG. The interactive experience is meant to help festival attendees refresh their style, experience all that LG devices have to offer, and -- let's face it -- smell a little better. After all, dancing for hours under the hot sun can really ramp up that body odor, and when you multiply that by thousands? Yikes.

The 3,600-square-foot site will be located in the middle of the 700-acre campground. There, festivalgoers will find a lounge equipped with a wash-n-fold service consisting of 50 LG washing machines and dryers, as well as LG Styler steam clothing care systems. Attendees can drop off any dirty, smelly clothing for a complimentary wash before heading back out to the music -- and come back an hour or two later to fresh, nice-smelling clothes. It's the perfect solution for anyone who wants to avoid stinking up the dance floor.

Keep cool and comfortable in the Showers Pass Summer Riding Collection

As spring transitions to summer, it's time to start thinking about what you're going to wear to stay cool beneath the sweltering sun -- in town and out on the trail. An increasing number of companies are blending merino wool with manmade fibers in order to harness the best of both worlds. While merino wool serves as an excellent temperature regulator and odor reducer, synthetic fibers provide softness, durability, and stretch. Showers Pass introduces its Summer Riding Collection for everyone from urban cyclists to the most adventurous backcountry mountain bikers.

The Showers Pass Summer Riding Collection was designed with an active lifestyle in mind. Merino wool's natural microbial protection keeps you smelling fresh even after a long day on the trail. The company utilized a proprietary blend of nylon and polyester in select areas for the ultimate fusion of natural and synthetic fabrics, designed to withstand everyday abuse and routine upkeep. The collection includes a full line of products from head to toe in both men's and women's versions. This new line of technical apparel is designed to perform, but it also makes you look great.
