    Wet bulb hygrometers are also known as Mason's hygrometers. They use the difference between a wet and dry thermometer to get humidity. I think they're around $30.

    They're a pain because you have to use a chart or slide rule to figure out the RH and you have to keep the little resevoir filled with water. I don't know what the pluses are, there must be some or else they would have stopped making them.

    Don't they make any stronger, wet-resistant ones?

    You could keep it in a ziploc baggie to keep the humidity out...

    What's the point of putting it in a ziploc thing if it would have a different humidity?

    They make outdoor digital hygrometers that are built to operate fully exposed. How do you think meteorologists do it? There are increasingly more consumer-level weather devices on the market as well. The cheap analog hygrometers you find at pet stores are pretty inaccurate in my experience; if you're willing to drop $30 or $40, you can find a weather-resistant one. Many of them even have wireless waterproof sensors that give readouts and record highs/lows on a base station that you keep indoors.
