To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’m not really impressed. Does it cool, initially? Yes. Does it stay cool? Not so much. Bought multiples for family members, and my self. Have used them for sports, hiking, gardening, even loaned it to a certified Arborist, and have been remarkably underwhelmed. It is cool at the outset, and re-snapping it as you go along does provide “some” relief, but as a true cooling towel, it fails. Maybe my expectations were too high, maybe I did it wrong, but even after keeping a wet towel in the fridge, for ~24h no less, this product did not perform as I would have expected. If you have the time, and availability, to re-wet it, on a regular basis (e.g. every 30-60 min., especially in heat and humidity), then I think it would perform “adequately” ... if not, don’t bother.
The first time we used these we went to Death Valley in California. The hottest place in the US. Fortunately, we went in February which was a good time to go since it wasn't very hot. For the time that they were moist it worked pretty well. We just didn't have a lot of places to refresh the towels and I wasn't about to use my drinking water to do so. Overall all I was pretty satisfied with its performance. I liked the versatility of using it as a scarf or headband. I was surprised as to how the cloths felt. Almost as if you could have gotten any cloth and used them the same way. I haven't tried that yet so these could very well be special. I'd like to try them again wherein I have a readily available water source to refresh the towels at regular intervals. Overall though, I was satisfied with how it performed and would recommend that you try it.
Love it! I don't handle the hot weather very well, so I got this to help me handle when camping or outside - or when the a/c is not working very well. I left it slightly damp and crumpled on my desk and it still cooled down after a quick snap. My husband is amazed as well - he could not believe how long it stayed cool in the hot air.
When it does start to feel warm, like any cool wet cloth will, all it takes is a snap and it cools immediately. Thinking of buying more.
Absolute necessity in the hot summer months! We bought 1 to see how it worked then came back and bought 4 more because it worked so well. My boyfriend works construction and uses two while he is working in 100 degree heat and now he wont work without them. Our AC went out in June 2020 in CA when it was 103 outside and these kept us alive, sane, and cool. So worth it!!
I was skeptic of how effective this would be, it looked like an ordinary pc of fabric after all. I am pleasantly surprised how great this works. It stays cool for hours. Easy to use and the length is long enough that I can wrap around my neck like a scarf. I ordered the blue cameo print and it can almost pass a fashion accessory. I am going to order more now !! This is an essential pc to have to ride the steamy NY subway in the summer.
I purchased two towels. One for my wife she uses it when she is working on her flowers on a hot day. The second one is for me when I go golfing on a hot humid day. The towels sure give you cool relief when you need it.
Love it. I am very hot natured and work in my yard evenings and weekends. This truly helps keep me stay cool. Material is not bulky so comfortable around my neck. Will be buying a few more to give friends and family. Great price.
This works pretty well for headaches as well as to cool off. It dries out pretty quickly, within two hours inside, one hour outside, but as soon as you wet it again it cools off. I will be buying another one for my toddler to wear at the parks.
