Arctic Cove for the Summer Heat

artic cove spray & mist bottle

Okay, this may not be the coolest thing we have reviewed.  Okay, sorry about that, it is the coolest item we have reviewed.  What I meant to say this might not be the most interesting product we have reviewed, but if you have kids, this is definitely for you.  You may remember we reviewed the Arctic Cove fan last year and that was a great way to cool yourself down.  This year we have a Drink N Mist Bottle and a Large Cooling Towel.

Cooling BottleWhen I first saw this Drink N Mist, I wasn’t too excited about it.  But then I had the bright idea thinking my son would love this.  Well turns out, this is the greatest invention since the twizzler.  He is big into baseball and it gets hot out there.  We gave him this bottle and he just loves it.  In fact, all the kids now want a misting bottle and for $10, they can each get one.  So how does it work?  You fill the bottle with water.  On the top of the bottle there is a pull valve to open and close a spout for your drinking water.  Right next to this spout, there is another opening where the mist comes out.  On the side of the bottle, squeeze a trigger and you will get a fine mist.  This is great for wetting down your face, your head, your arms or even your hat.  I have to say I find myself using this bottle a lot.  In fact, my son always tells me to get my own.  Now one thing to note is the bottle is not insulated.  So on hot days don’t expect the water to stay cold for long.  This is just a plastic bottle to hold water and mist.

Cooling Towel coveThe next item on the list is a cooling towel, which I have never heard of.  Basically you wet a towel, wring it out and snap it apart.  Once you snap the towel, it is supposed to activate and be cool to the touch.  I really can’t tell you if it really works or not.  To me it feels like it works, but I am not 100% sure.  The times I have used it, it has been hot out.  So in reality any wet towel would feel great.  I have used this towel and compared it against a regular cotton towel and to me it seems like there is a huge difference, but again, not sure if it is just in my head.  Bottom line is that this is a great towel.  It’s light weight, can be washed, holds water and it does cool you down.  This item is also sold for $10.  If you’re into outdoor activities or tend to be outside for work or play, this can be a great way to help you keep cool.

  1. Regarding the cooling towel, have to say I haven’t tried one but I have used something similar called a Mira-Cool. Worn around the neck, it’s filled with crystals that absorb cold water and swell up staying cold for quite awhile cooling you as your blood flows through the arteries in your neck. They work, I used it while working outside and in attics here in Fort Worth ( where the heat index is 103° today )
    I’ve seen towel versions advertised before, and being larger they are able to be worn in several different ways, such as bandanas and “Dew Rags”, probably worth a look.

  2. Eric I couldn’t agree with you more on these little mist & drink water bottles. Over the Memorial Day weekend I picked these up at HD for $5 for my girls. They love it (mostly to play). They go everywhere with them, volleyball, gymnastics, walking, etc. They other products, but this one caught my eye & for the price. Left one happy customer.

    I’ve also have the Mission cooling towel which I got at Lowes ($15) early last year. I liked it so much that all members of my family have one. I’m not sure about Artic Cove towel, but I’m sure they are the same. These are nice for yard work, cooking outside, any outdoor event to keep cool. You need these for those hot humid days in Chicago. Laters TIA
