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.
This product is fine. I live in northern Minnesota and will be traveling to Florida in July. Having been to Florida in the summer before I wanted to try a simple cooling technique. I hoped these would be the answer. They are ok. I am neutral about them. Not life changing. I used one today in my backyard in MN so not nearly as hot as FL. I was still hot lol! My neck was cool....they do stay cool but again they aren’t life changing. Bonus? They aren’t very expensive so I’m glad I tried. However, I wouldn’t suggest them to anyone. My daughters Disney world fan/sprayer works better ha! **i will add that after reading my review the company offered a partial refund of the product. I thought this was very good customer service. I refused the refund as I purchased the product knowing what I may be getting. So, while the product wasn’t everything I’d hoped for the company seems very fair.
This cooling towel does a nice job cooling - though it does not maintain its moisture for long, but there is a real problem with its color. When I put it in the ice chest on the cart, it leaks the color of the towel. I have been using it for quite a while, so it is not a matter of being new and new colors sometimes leak. This is sustained. When you wet it and squeeze, the color is in the water released. When it is in the ice chest, everything turns colors, making the water bottles less desirable. It does its job, but buyer beware of this problem.
I have a mixed opinion about this product. I bought them for my children to use in the hot car since their car seats get so damn hot. I was hoping for something that I could wet in the house, and then give to them in the car between errands so that they didn't whine about the heat. This plan worked out ok----
PROS: Good size, pretty color (I got the aqua), nice carabiner clip on the package, stays cool for a decently long time, the snapping feature really did seem to make the cloths cooler.
CONS: The one con is a MAJOR con to me--- when I put the cloth back in the packaging between errands, it smelled truly awful when I took it back out less than an hour later. I have seen other reviews that have said that this smell dissipated after washing it, so I am going to try that, and will update my review if my opinion changes, but as of now, I had to leave the cloth out to air dry, and then re-wet it when I returned to the car. Not as convenient as I was hoping for when I read the description.
This stayed cool about 3 hours. I timed a damp hand towel on my head. The towel stayed cool 2 hours 45 min and was damp longer. It's not expensive, though and comes with a carrying case and hook. That part I like. Easier than walking around with a towel. It is thinner. So, if you are looking for convenience, this is mre convenient than a towel if you are going out.
I got this for a camping trip in the deep south this summer. The fabric is high quality and it washes easily and is a good size and pretty design. It is certainly cooling while wet and was ideal for draping across me with a camp fan aimed over it on the hottest nights to create a very cooling AC effect. I don't think it's like magically or stupendously more cool than most any other piece of thin wet fabric though and it didn't suddenly get super cold when I snapped it like recommended, just stayed about the same. That all said, it was worth the cheap price just because it you do want a cooling towel, its the right size and quality for one.
