Tech This Out: Really cool towel
CRANSTON, R.I. —
When it's 90-plus degrees and the humidity is at 70 percent, it pretty much feels like 1 million degrees outside. And sometimes your body just can't cool down.
That's where Mission Athletecare's Enduracool instant cooling towel comes in.
It's really cool and here's how it works: Dunk it or pour water on it. Then wring it out or snap it. It instantly cools to 60 degrees.
The towel feels cool on your skin, and that cooling effect lasts about two hours.
It works best when you place it on so-called hot zones like your chest, head or neck. And if you are out in the sun, it even has UV protection.
Enduracool is chemical free. The company uses a special fabric technology that absorbs and retains sweat and water, circulating the molecules and regulating the rate of evaporation.
The result? You cool off and don't get wet.
The towel comes in a variety of colors and sizes. All are under $20 and available online.
