Like many soccer dads and moms, Rick Pescovitz found himself attending several of his kids' tournaments year-round. Many times, he and other parents sat through games with teeth chattering, drenched in rain or shivering in cold temperatures. "Once we were in a town in Virginia for a game. It was windy and freezing. I thought this was crazy," he said.
On the drive back home, Pescovitz was inspired by portable toilets he saw at the game and mentally sketched a fully-enclosed portable tent that could fit a folding chair. That idea resulted in the "Under The Weather" tent, which he launched in late 2011. Pescovitz is currently selling the tent online and soon at soccer events. He's also working on the next iterations of the tent -- heated ones and tents that connect together to fit two people.
