Special hats can keep you cool during sunny activities
If a person is not properly hydrated, summer heat can suck the fun out of any pastime. Certain hats have the ability to shade the eyes and head from the sun's rays, but sweat collects and evaporates under the brim of headgear, leaving a crusty residue that often causes irritation. Dumping water over your head only offers temporary relief when the sun is very strong, especially in dry, sandy environments like the desert where there is little to no shade available. However, certain new products are beginning to incorporate innovative new methods to keep people's heads cool.
The Misty Mate Cooling Cap combines the soothing relief of water with the UV protection of traditional hats. Special cooling technology within the actual fabric allows integrated crystals to absorb nearly 200 times their weight in liquid, which will not evaporate for hours even under the direct sun. Since the cap shades the eyes or face, it fits easily underneath a baseball cap or other headgear. Of course, the device is also waterproof, so you can simply re-wet it by diving into a nearby lake or stream.
From the beach to the middle of the wilderness, the Misty Mate cap makes cooling down a splash.
