I read the Night Owl story about the gal who had heat issues at a ball game. Want to tell all about this product if you don't know about it. Activcool Cooling Towel. available at Sam's. They are great.... just need a bottle of water to activate them,or wet them at home and put in plastic bag to carry. Can be washed and reused Getting overheated isgood Kathy

I think I saw something similar at Lowes, too. I need one. I need several, actually. Enough to cover my whole body when I come in from gardening. It's like a permanent hot flash.

They are probably in a lot of stores. Friend got hers at Sams, so I went there. Paid $13 for 2 . They're great. Kathy

I have had one since they came out. Great when I have to unload hay in July and August. For mowing the lawn too.

You girls are so welcome! I was thinking of making these for gifts. Even for the grandkids that play sports, or at the beach. Stick them in the cooler! My neighbor that walks her dog looks like she needs one. lol

Usually you can find a smaller package of the crystals at a gardening center. A pound would make maybe 100!
