Wonderful cooling towel that keeps on working after a quick dip in water and snap
They work really well-- I work eight hours a day in a hot environment and the heat was so bad that, even keeping hydrated
I find that well worth it for the cooling it provides. I read that these usually last about four hours before needing "refilled" and I'd say that estimate is on the low side; I work in a pretty dry place and they still seem to last at least 5 before getting dry.
So I have used a couple different brands of cooling towels and did not expect much from this one. My boyfriend, dad and myself play pickleball in 90+ degree weather in the summer, tournaments with games that can last a long time. I purchased this in anticipation of this past weekend's tournament, where the weather felt like Florida, again, not expecting much more than a towel that would dry out quickly and not stay cold. I only bought one thinking this. After the first day, I purchased two more for my dad and boyfriend!! They were so jealous of how cool my towel stayed compared to theirs! This thing was SERIOUSLY a lifesaver. It stayed cool for hours off of one soaking in the cold water in the cooler. AMAZING. If you're looking for instant cooling relief, don't get those other towels. This is the one you want.
This towel saved me in the high heat of Southern Thailand.
This thing works, trust me. I play tennis in the a.m. in South Carolina and it is hot. Like 105 heat index in the afternoon. I bring this with me to the court, after I've soaked it in the sink with ice cubes, wring it out gently, fold it and put it back into it's sleeve. I hang it around my neck during play time, and it doesn't fall off, just hangs low enough to stay on. My teammates, if they are lucky, get a sample of what it's like and they are all buying one! I hang it on a hanger when I get home, it dries stiff, but when I soak it again, it's perfect. Highly recommend this invention.
