Cool Bandanas, worn around the neck or forehead, are cooling systems made from a 100 percent cotton exterior with a polymer-filled core that works to pull heat from the bloodstream as it rushes to the surface of the skin.

As the skin's surface cools, the bloodstream pushes that cooling effect throughout the body and regulates the core body temperature to a comfortable, safe level.

“Unlike most personal cooling systems, Cool Bandanas only need 10 minutes of preparation and they are effective for the entire day,” explained Dale Garris, co-owner, Horizon Industries.

“As the body temperature rises, the polymer slowly releases the cool water to the surface of the skin and the properties of evaporation simply take care of the rest. You really know it's working when you forget you have it on and all of a sudden realize you are not hot or sweaty even when the sun is beating down or after physical exertion.”

Cool Bandanas are ideal for firefighters, farmers, construction workers, athletes, gardeners, and all other consumers and professionals who spend time outdoors.

The products are conveniently hand washable and are durable and effective regardless of how often they are used or washed.
