Default Does anyone make a good hygrometer??

Herp guys! Need your help on this one!

I'm looking for a high quality, analog, hygrometer that can withstand direct misting. I've tried the ZooMed & Petco models (both were recommended) and they are both garbage (one says ~40%, the other says ~ 65%, my calibrated digital probe says ~89%, which is very close to expected values).

This is for my emersed tank where it will be in direct contact with misting from a mist king, and from heavy condensation and dripping from the cover above. My humidity levels in this mostly sealed system exceed 80-85% at all times.

Any help would be appreciated, even if it is other models NOT to buy.

Many thanks in advance!
