As you don’t know any other options to make your trip more enjoyable, you decide to suck it up, secretly wishing things could be better.
I’ve got some good news to thrill your soul with.
There are a couple of smart cooling gadget options for you to choose from, to make this trip you’re about to embark on, the most delightful tour so far.
Best Cooling Gadgets For Travel Lovers
Ready? Let’s go through this super fab list together (promise me you’d not keep jumping up in excitement as you go through the list and you’d wait till the end to squeal in delight)
1. Mission Multi-Cool 2-in-1 Gaiter and Headwear
You know how when you’re enjoying a desert trip, and your throat gets parched, the sun becomes your worst friend, and you start pleading for a break from it?
Well, you don’t have to be that person anymore. With the Mission Multi-Cool 2-in-1 headwear, you get long-lasting cooling effects because of how exclusive it is. When wet, it can cool the body to 30 degrees below the average body temperature.
Perfectly designed for sun protection, it has a UPF rating of UPF 50, keeping you safe from skin-damaging ultraviolet rays by locking up to 98% of ultraviolet radiation.
You are also protected from other natural elements that might detract from your fun-filled trips such as dust and wind.
Activating this gadget is easy- all you need do is soak it in water, twist and snap three times. The super cool device can be worn as a headband, scarf, facemask; up to the limit of your creativity.
2. Cooling Towels and Scarves
If you’re regularly engaged in sporting activities, getting a cooling towel or scarf is a smart idea, especially if you sweat a lot. Headaches, sore muscles; all of these can be taken care of when you use your scarf or towel.
Here’s how the cooling scarf works: via the crystal polymer cooling technology, the veil can absorb a lot of sweat. Activating it requires you to hold it in water for about five minutes, after which you wring the water out of it.
You then wrap the scarf around your head or neck, absorbing sweat as you do so. It’s a smart choice for the road because it’s reusable- one such scarf can be used up to 30 times!
The cooling towel also comes in fab designs, enough to cause heads to turn in your direction. It has a super-relaxing cooling effect which lasts for several hours. What’s more impressive: you can also use it to cool your pets, and not just yourself.
How awesome is that? It also has a sun protective factor to keep you out of harm’s way.
3. Cooling Hoodie
If you’re a very stylish person, you might not be so intrigued by a cooling blanket or even a cooling towel. But a cooling hoodie? Way to go!
The cooling hoodie is one of the best cooling gadgets which is made with soft microfiber, making it a perfect outfit if you engage in open sports, or work in an outdoor environment.
The hoodie is very easy to wear, as you can comfortably tuck it under your sports shirt, or pull it over your head and forehead.
There are also 2-in-1 options for cooling hoodies; such that when dry, the hoodie absorbs sweat and when wet, it calms down to 30 degrees. Frequent moistening of the hoodie ensures that it works well.
What’s more; exercise stimulates it to work very well, with it serving as an active coolant when the user experiences severe heat.
4. ChiliPad – Cooling Mattress Pad
After an energy-sapping day, few things sound as refreshing as sound sleep. Thinking of a cooling gadget that’d work at night and keep you cushioned up in warmth?
The ChiliPad: a cooling and heating mattress pad are just right for you.
This mattress is what you can call a water bed, equipped with a timer to enable you to switch it on and off, and you can also choose the best sleeping temperature that suits you.
Good sleep doesn’t have to be such a chore, as you’d find out with the ChiliPad.
5. The Portable Cooler
Being on the road, driving for several hours can be tiring. What better way to lift your spirits, other than fresh music and chilled drinks from your portable cooler?
This cooler helps store your drinks, snacks, and other edibles, storing enough stuff for a family dinner.
The portable cooler works by using fans and water to create a super cool air blast that decreases room temperature by up to 20 degrees Fahrenheit, while at the same time, reducing ambient air between 5-9 degrees Fahrenheit.
It takes advantage of the evaporative cooling effect through which water is absorbed in our environments.
Because of how easy it is to lift, a portable cooler can be moved across different areas without you racking your head over hooking up ventilation hoses and drains.
As well, this portable evaporative cooler does not use a condenser, so it does not use up lots of energy, and requires very little in terms of maintenance.
Topping up the noble effects of this cooling gadget is that it quickly puts lots of moisture back in the air, especially when in dry climates. This way, it is doubly beneficial. Isn’t that cool?
It’s a done deal!
Now, you can finally squeal in delight as you choose which of these smart cooling gadgets are most useful for you and your family/traveling buddies as you embark on that utterly delightful trip (everyone would be wondering when you became so cool).
Don’t say I never did anything nice for you!
