Introducing our newest cooling accessory -- a cooling head and neck wrap that accommodates a wide range of shapes and sizes -- flexible enough to be used around your neck as well.
The back concealed pocket holds one frozen CoolPak strip against the base of your head -- or when worn around your neck, the CoolPak can be positioned at the back of neck -- or at front, to cool blood at your carotid arteries.
The cotton/spandex "band" lends a cool, non-slip, absorbant benefit. fhe cooling is positioned at the base of your head, cooling the blood enroute to your brain, where overheating occurs!
Cooling the neck has been shown to help improve performance, reduce sweating, and enhance the feeling of comfort (1,2). Even this small area of the body will yield some surprising benefits from cooling.
Surface cooling depends primarily on how much surface area you can cover, where more is better. However, there are a few small areas on the body which provide unique responses to cooling. The back of your neck is one of those areas. The palms of your hands is another. *Read more about palm cooling in our "CoolCuff" section.
