I cant remember if I mentioned these before or not.

With the up and coming hot weather these things are absolutely magic.
Just wet them....wring them out and shake the towel for a few seconds.....very refreshing and instant cool down.



Excellent for adults or children.

Not sure how well they would work on dogs Joe with all their hair?
I do know that direct to the skin they are very good and work a treat.
The one I have for Meg is specially designed for dogs Bill and is for her to lay on, the little jackets are designed to be soaked in water

Similar in concept, I used the issue one of these in Iraq, Kenya and Uganda and found they worked really well.

They work via the principal of latent heat evaporation (which is how you cool down through sweating), it’s the process through which water bottles can be kept cool in those furry carry cases.

I've usually run with a microfibre towel round my neck as a sweat rag but for 4 quid, I'll give this a go. Cheers mate.

You can use the same system that the old army issue water bottles used to make a bush fridge

Let us know how you get on with them and what you think of them Mark and Bam if you do try them :thumbsup:
The container they come in is handy too if in the pack or glove compartment of the car.
