Every Grey Nomad Needs One !
We are dropping off a quick note from on the road to say how pleased we are with our Cool Cloths that we got from you at the Elvis Festival in Parkes.
Travelling through Central NSW and South Australia in January/February would have been hellish, except that we managed to keep our temperatures down with your amazingly fabulous Cool Cloths and Necktie Coolers.
Even Rhodie (our doggy) wears her necktie from the freezer on hot days and she loves it.
We pop the Cool Cloths on when we are on the boat, kayaking, fishing or walking and they stay cool for ages by just fanning them in the air !
I have also used mine to keep cool whilst driving by placing it over my legs and letting the fan blow on me. This works really well when the heat is stifling !
Thanks for such a cool product. We will tell everyone we meet as we travel around Australia they should get one !

What a difference you made to the boys in their wheelchairs !
Dear Personal Cooling Products,
The Australian Power Football Association would like to thank you for your support and your wonderful product, the Cool n Safe personal cooling neck ties, that you recently supplied us for our international event last January.
As an organisation that provides access to sport for severely disabled athletes who use electric wheelchairs, we often have to manage how best to provide a playing environment that allows our athletes the best comfort.
A majority, due to their disability find the extremes of temperature, both hot and cold, an issue when participating in sport and during their day to day activities.
You can then understand why it was such a wonderful moment to find how successful and appreciative the players were when we supplied them your Cool n Safe neck ties as part of their event welcome pack.
Not only were they a success in assisting with dealing with the extreme high temperatures experienced during January this year, your suggestion of the Cool n Safe neck tie with the Velcro closure was terrific, as it allowed easy access in putting on and removing, especially when in a wheelchair. In some cases the player was able to manage themselves instead of having to wait for assistance.
Our international guests from Japan who we were competing against, were also extremely appreciative of the coolers as they arrived on that Friday which was our hottest day ever in Sydney, when the temperature hit over 46 degrees Celsius !
I wish I could have been able to take a photo when we showed them how they worked and the instant relief they experienced, as the heat was something they were not quite ready for, especially arriving after leaving winter back in Japan.
A great product which we cannot rate high enough and your service and support were second to none.
Thanks again and I look forward to doing business again in the future.

Your products have been a life changer for my husband's MS
Your products have been a life changer.
My husband Terry has been diagnosed with MS for over 10 years and struggled with heat each summer, while we saw our power usage go through the roof trying to keep him cool.
3 years ago I found the web page for Personal Cooling Products Neck Coolers and started using them, each year ordering more as their uses became more and more apparent.
Now we would never start a summer without them.
October 2012, Kathie let us know about the Cooling Vests.
Terry was very apprehensive about them. How could they work when they are not frozen?Three hours after putting it on, hes a believer.
His body temperature was controlled even through it was in the upper 20s in the house.When the temperature hit close to 40, this last summer, he would wear his vest with a frozen Super Cool N Safe Neck Cooler round his neck.
It is peace of mind for both of us.
I have recommended it to all members of our Local MS Group, and we now offer them to local members who struggle with heat.
I even borrow his vest to wear when mowing the lawns. I team it with the new Cool Cloth, worn as a bandana, and wouldnt think of doing the gardening now without them.
Thanks Kathie and Ken.

The Cool Vest helps Owen with his Ectodermal Dysplasia
Our son Owen has a rare genetic condition called Ectodermal Dysplasia. The most significant aspect of this condition for Owen is that he is unable to regulate his body temperature due to his inability to sweat.
We live in Qld and as you may already know the weather can get fairly hot, and combined with the humidity, can be quite draining on any person that has the ability to sweat, let alone someone who doesnt sweat.
We purchased the HTF Exotherm Endurance Youth Vest from Personal Cooling Products in November 2012. Owen finds the vest comfortable and is happy to wear the vest over his shirt or under his shirt (directly on his skin). The vest provides cooling relief for Owen as he is unable to tolerate products that are icy on his skin, as this is equivalent to an average person jumping in a bath full of ice.
Despite Owens condition he is very active and loves to play all sports (cricket, soccer, touch) and participate in outdoor activities (bike and scooter riding).
The vest has allowed Owen to run around and play outside longer with his friends without seeking the air-conditioned environment as often as he used to.

Cool Cooks !
It definitely gets hot in our kitchen, and as caring employees, we want to make sure our staff are as cool as possible whilst working.
We got some of your Cool N Safe Neck Coolers at Country Music. We leave some in the fridge chilling and swap them over as they warm up. They are really effective and great value for money.
Thanks Personal Cooling Products for keeping us cool !

My Cool Cloth worked a treat at the Australian Open
The Cool Cloth worked its magic at the Australian Open Tennis this year Kathie.
On one day the temperature got up to 40 deg C, probably more where we were sitting, but the Cool Cloth made it bearable. I was surprised to find how long it lasted before having to re-soak it in water.
I used it around my neck and at times laid it over my legs, it worked a treat. I will definitely be taking it with me to the Australian Open again next year.

Coolest hat in the Greek Islands
My Cool Hat has been successfully sea tested in the Greek Islands and Pittwater/Broken Bay with excellent results.
Comfortable, cool, good shade and good chin tie for security in a blow.
Circumstances prevented me testing my SunGuard at the snow last season, so the job was sub-contracted to my friend Peter Snowball (yes Snowball) who reported very favourably on its usefulness in preventing sunburn whilst skiing.
Thank you very much

How great does the New Cool Cloth make me feel !
I am a bowler at Windang Bowling Club in New South Wales.
I had a tracheotomy three years ago and I have to wear a permanent trachy to enable me to breathe. In the hot weather breathing is very difficult.
However I have discovered the Cool Cloth, which is available in a triangular shape as well as a rectangle. The Cool Cloth has been invaluable to me, as it keeps me cool and makes breathing easier. It is comfy soft to wear, and, as well as looking really fashionable and allowing me many different ways to wear it, it makes the trachy virtually invisible.
I can now enjoy my bowls. In fact today, in soaring temperaratures, I bowled all day and felt wonderful.
The Cool Cloth would be an asset to any bowler as it is so easy to maintain coolness and relaxation throughout a game. To be really cool, all you need is water and a hand. Wet it and wave it ! It will always be cool for you by following these simple steps. If you want to beat the heat I recommend the Cool Cloth for coolness and comfort.
I also have a Cool Hat. Wonderful product !
Thanks Personal Cooling Products ! I will be telling the world about your products and your personalised service.

Cool Vest for MS Sufferers
BEAT THE HEAT. GET MORE OUT OF LIFE !
I must say your cooling vest was a life-saver for me on my trip through the humid South from Arkansas to Key West as well as the heat in TX, NM and Arizona. I travelled almost 7,000 miles on my motorcycle. I am so happy I made that trip.
My Doctor's only restriction for me taking this trip was that I could not get hot. Because of your product I was able to deal with that restriction and have the ride of my life!
I was able to trek around on foot in the humidity and heat of 95 F to 105 F wearing my cooling vest without any issues
My vest and I had our biggest challenge riding from Tucson to Yuma. Oh boy, it was hot. The temperature was 115 F outside and even hotter on us, as we were exposed to the hot wind and heat from the asphalt. We rode for 6 hours that day and would stop every 1.5 hours and get out of the heat and have a drink of water where I would pour ice water in my boots. Had I not had your cooling vest to help maintain my core temperature, I would have had a big problem that day.
Because of your products and other assistive devices, those of us dealing with MS can pursue the dreams and activities we love.
I think by me going on my adventure I remembered that it was Patti having the adventure, not Patti with MS having an adventure. The cooling vest allows me to participate in activities that heat would prevent me from enjoying.
I will always use my cooling vest. It made my trip possible. If I can handle 115 degrees F with your cooling vest, I can go anywhere.
Thanks again. Your product has made a difference in my life.

Cool hats in Kokoda
A big thank you from our porters for the great donation of the Adventurer Cool Hats for us to give to the porters assisting us on our walk along the Kokoda Track. When I handed the hats out on our first morning on the Kokoda Track, the smiles on the faces were as big as the brims on the hats !
Our porters immediately put on their head gear and proudly wore them through the heat and the rain of the jungle on the first day.
When they were not wearing them, you could see them proudly hanging from their packs ready to put on when you came out of the jungle and into the hot sun.
The hats acted as a beacon as you could easily see them through the jungle these glimpses of orange meant you were on the right track.
I wore my 2009 cool hat and of course the incredible cool tie, which again kept me cool when traipsing through the steamy and extremely hot 8 day trek across the Owen Stanley ranges in Papua New Guinea.
I cannot thank Kathie enough for her kind donation in supplying the hats to our porters who are rarely given anything new, and in particular the Cool Hats, which made their trek a lot easier.
On the last day my porter, Leonard, proudly donned his hat and walked out to the end memorial at Owens corner with Kathie's cool hat proudly atop his head for all to see.
Im sure these hats will see many treks across the mountains providing much needed sun protection and offering a cool neck to make the porter's task in carrying the heavy packs, a more comfortable journey.
Thank you Kathie for your continued support and supply of cool products.

Brilliant hats for out Sailing !
This cool hat is amazing!
I have been racing yachts in Lake Macquarie for the past 3 summer seasons and the cool gel hat, SunGuards for sun protection, and neck tie coolers are brilliant on those days when it is hot, the breeze is light and you are going nowhere fast.
Just wet the gel bits and keep cool in the fridge or freezer . I also like the neck protection flap on the hat that you can reveal when required to protect the back of your neck.
Why hasnt anyone thought of this before?
Vicki - 01/12/2012
This is the best hat in the world !
Following on from our chance meeting and discussion at Tamworth Country Music Festival, I wish to thank you for your design and manufacture of what I consider to be, the coolest and best sun preventative hat on the market.
With the knowledge we have today about harmful sunrays, I believe we all have the opportunity to do something about it. Over the years I have spent the majority of my working and leisure life in the outdoors, wearing an Army Slouch Hat, Mining Helmet and Golf Hat. All were extremely hot as they did not let my natural body heat escape from my head.
In 2010 a chance shopping spree led me to enter the Cancer Council Shop at Westfield Kotara in Newcastle. I walked out 10 minutes later with which turned out to be the best, coolest hat I have ever placed on my head.
In April of 2010 along with a group of friends we ventured to Vietnam. On packing my luggage I found I could screw up the hat, throw it in the case and away I went. On arrival I pulled out the hat. Hey presto ! Back into shape. I fully endorse the design and find that it gives great sun protection, is extremely cool to wear and by just rinsing in water is easy to maintain.
I cannot speak highly enough of your hats and if you wish you may use my name to endorse you product, feel free to do so.

The Coolers help my son with Ectodermal Dysplasia
Thank you to the Personal Cooling Products team for providing Cool Snake Neck Tie Coolers for all the families at this years ozED camp.
Due to the inability of people affected by Ectodermal Dysplasia to regulate their body temperature, the neck tie coolers provide relief from the heat.
My son is very active and finds it hard to cool down during the summer months without the help of cooling products. He is comfortable and happy whilst wearing the neck tie cooler.

Coolest Hat ever !
I live in Albuquerque New Mexico, USA.
I received one of your Cool Hats, with a Cool Pad, as a gift from a friend in Australia.
I absolutely love it ! Fits perfectly, keeps me cool and is everything I need in the dry heat of the Southwest.
I'll be ordering a Cool Hat with Cool Pad for my granddaughter, who just loves my hat. She goes hiking in the Sandia Mountains, just minutes from where we live, and there's nothing like your hat for coolness.

Community Care workers are cool while they work
Just thought you would like to know how wonderful the neck ties are proving for our Community Care Staff. We are centred on the Far North Coast of NSW and Southern QLD.
The temperature is regularly in the mid 30's, with very high humidity.
We distributed 50 Cool Snake neck tie coolers to our staff, who are making good use of them each day.
We have suggested that our older clients may also benefit from their use. We thought you may like to use this photo of our nurse, Joan, using her tie and our recommendation for your product.
With thanks for your great idea.

Tamworth City women bowlers have a cool winning secret !
Here are some of the Tamworth City women bowlers in our new Cool Hats. We bought these in January for the coming District Pennant Competition, which is played February and March when it is usually so hot and dry with temps up to 40C.
I especially have found the hat to be a great asset with the Cooling Pad, which I freeze the night before and take with me in the chiller bag in the morning. Once the heat creeps into the day, I pop the Cool Pad into the crown of the hat and this keeps me much cooler. I also have a spare Cool Pad, which I also freeze, and have this on hand on really hot days to replace the first Cool Pad used.
The hat provides excellent shade to the whole face, whilst being so light and very comfy. The adjustable string for all sizes works well for me, as I have a small head. I have also found the adjustable head tie to work well, as we played some games in the wind and, whilst other hats were blown away, mine was secure.

My job is now so much easier.
I work outdoors and therefore, wearing a hat is a must. In 2009, I was issued with an Akubra hat. As good as the hat is, it did not give me the protection from the sun that I required. In the summer, I perspire, which becomes quite a nuisance. I tried wearing various head bands, but the look just was not right.
In January 2011, I found Cool Hats, and purchased their Adventurers Cool Hat. I now have the protection I need to stop my neck from burning. I still perspire, but this does not cause me anymore problems, as the terry towelling sweat band does its job.
I now feel a lot cooler when I am at work, which helps relieve a lot of stress.

Bandanna Mumma loves her cooler !
Just sending a picture of myself in my cooler to thank you so much.
I purchased a Cool Snake neck tie cooler before my last Bali trip because it is so hot in Bali, and I suffer from the heat since I am going through menopause.
The Cool Snake neck tie was a god send ! As you can see, I not only wore it around my neck, but also as a bandanna. My family nicknamed me Bandanna Mumma Lol !
I am going to Bali again so have ordered more for this trip in different colours.
This is a fantastic product ! Thank you once again.

Mansfield Council, Victoria used Cool Snakes for their Heatwave Program
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your fantastic service and delivery of a great product. Working within the aged and disability sector, we are constantly looking for ways to assist our clients to lead more comfortable independent lives.
As part of our Heatwave Program, we purchased Cool Snake Neck Tie Coolers for all our clients and our community care workers. The feedback has been terrific.
Some comments included-
"I can sit on the verandah on a hot day in comfort with me neck cooler on." Moyhu : 90 years old
"I was amazed at the difference it made when I was delivering home care on those hot summer days." Rochelle : Community Care Worker.
Your neck ties are well made and have been a great hit !

We would like to thank you for providing us with the Cool Snake Neck Tie Coolers for our Softball Club.
They have been a huge success with the hot weather we have been experiencing, and have made playing in the heat much more bearable.
We are sending a team of girls to Canberra next month to play and they will all be wearing the neck coolers which is fantastic...and will give them a definite advantage over the other players !
One of our girls works as a Tech for Holden and has sold over 30 to her team of Mechanics which has made working in the hot workshops a lot more comfortable for them.

Arabian Horse Show
At the Arabian Horse Feature Show, we were concerned to reduce heat stress with everyone concerned, so we chose to put Cool Snake Neck Coolers into every exhibitors pack. The coolers went down really well !
We had 38 degrees on the second day so everyone was wearing them. The judges and workers thought they were brilliant and I had requests for more. Because we had the coolers in different colours, people were asking me to co-ordinate with their outfits ! At least the boys were all happy getting black.
The Cool Hat Cool Pads were also a hit inside our equestrian helmets.
It was a great idea and thank you for making them available at the price you did.

Thanks for the fabulous customer service !
A long time ago I used the neck tie coolers and when I had them no more, I thought I would try to find them again. I had gone to a few shops and even tried the supermarkets, but nothing: just ice block freezer things to keep food cold.
I thought I would try a google search and to my surprise came across what I was after. I clicked onto www.coolhats.com.au and got as much detail as I could.
As I have disabilities I find some things hard to do on the internet so I was very encouraged when I had an email from Kathie, the supplier of Cool Hats and Neck Tie Coolers, who had gone out of her way to post the information I was requesting. It made my heart melt and I felt so blessed that I was catered for and was able to do the order the way it suited me best.
I will now be able to keep cool over the summer months thanks to Kathie at Cool Hats and Neck Tie Coolers.
I'II be sure to keep updated with all the latest news on Cool Hats, so I can help the environment and keep cool as well !
Kylie - 04/01/2012
Perfect gift idea !
I have enjoyed reading your newsletter at the end of a busy week in Melbourne, feeling like I joined you on your holiday with such great photos.
I wanted to let you know that when I last purchased some Neck Tie Coolers, it was for Christmas presents in 2009/2010. I got them for my daughter's school to give them in particular to the PE teacher, the Tennis coach and the School Head Groundsman who often helps me in my role at the school.
They were as a thank you. I also got the lime green for my cleaner because it matched her uniform, and a white one for my own daughter for tennis.
They are a small but thoughtful gift for those around you who help all year, and who often work in the heat of an Australian summer, while some of us are indoors in the air-conditioning.
The recipients of the Neck Tie Coolers are touched, intrigued and grateful once they are wet! Well done !

You helped me have the best adventure in Egypt. Thanks !
In June 2010 I had the trip of a lifetime with work to Egypt, Israel and Jordan.
I was so excited but conscious of how hot it was going to be at that time of year. I purchased both a Cool Snake and a Cool Hat prior to leaving, and they made my trip!
I was helping to keep the group together, and moving along, so I was always last back on the bus.
It was 38 degrees on the Giza Plateau, cooler in Israel: but still 35 degrees in the desert region, and a hot and windy 42 degrees in Petra.
As you can see from my photo (I am on the right) I am blonde with pale skin and I go bright red. But, both the Cool Hat and Cool Snake, enabled me to have the adventure of a life time ! Thanks !

My cool hat is the most comfortable hat I have worn. The wide brim is perfect for shading the sun, and the cool pad really works in hot weather. The terry towelling sweat band is a winner for comfort, and the hat looks great too!
These hats are the go when youre outdoors, and I love mine so much I even wear it indoors!
For the really hot days the neck tie is sensational especially if left in the freezer or in the esky before use. It helps cool down the blood and lower body temperature. I find both the hat and neck tie particularly handy when working hard in the garden on a hot day after a few too many the night before. They just help to cool down the brain.
Nigel - 16/10/2011
As a sports coach, your products are invaluable !
I was introduced to Cool Hats last year and haven't stopped wearing one since! I spend an inordinate amount of time in the sun with my job as a sports coach and also as the scorer for my son's cricket team, and found the Cool Hat not only extremely comfortable to wear, but aptly named, as it is very cool, allowing complete airflow over the top of the head whilst still protecting the face and neck from the sun.
Those terrible 40 degree summer days were much more bearable thanks to Cool Hats!

Brilliant products for the Kokoda Track
In 2009, after a battle with bowel cancer, I walked the Kokoda Track with my brother Wayne, and nephew Trent. It
was my lucky day while at the Tamworth Music Festival I came across Cool Hats and Neck Tie Coolers and purchased the Cool Hats and Neck Ties Coolers.
These turned out to be the best purchases made for the trek. The weather was hot, but every day we had torrential rain. The Neck Tie Coolers came in handy keeping us cool, but also stopping the rain from running down our backs.
The hats were brilliant: light weight to carry and wear, and cool even we forgot to put the cooler insert in. We left a
hat and tie with each of our porters so that they could keep cool when making their many treks each year.
Im off to do Kokoda again and will be organising Cool Hats and Neck Tie Coolers for all the trekkers. I recommend them
to anyone, be it on an adventure, or a walk around the park.
Jenny - 31/03/2011
Great hat for on the water !
Just wanted to let you know how much I love my cool hat. I am on the water lots, yet suffer no reflection glare thanks to the green under the brim of my hat.
It stays put in the wind. I like the fact that I can use both the cord and the back tightener to make it real secure.
Being a redhead and subject to burning, the wide brim protects my whole face, neck and shoulders.
It is so cooling and light I hardly know I have a hat on.
Out boating or fishing, I throw an extra cool pad in and swap them over so I can stay out for ages.
Best of all, I give it heaps and just toss it anywhere when I get home. When I go get it, it bounces back into shape and off I go.
Thanks for a great hat.

What a difference your products make to my productivity
I operate a small business, Blades of Grass - Lawn Mowing, Window Cleaning & More.
I have been using your Neck Tie Coolers for 2 years. What a difference it has made to our productivity during hot summer days. Since using the Neck Tie Coolers I have not had any heat stress headaches, and my body temperature is kept cooler. At night I freeze 2 or 3 coolers and in the morning place them in my esky and rotate them during the day as required. Absolutely brilliant!!
Now, thanks to your ingenuity, I am using the Best Outdoors Hats with cooling pads as well. I also have purchased Neck Tie Coolers & an Outdoors hat for my staff as well. I consider your products as an Occupational Health & Safety necessity.
We have had our business name embroidered onto the hats, and are the coolest lawn mowers on the Fleurieu Peninsula !
Thank you so very much.

Perfect hat for travelling
Thank you so much Kathie for suggesting I take your Cool Hats with us on our recent holiday in Sri Lanka. We took several over with us and all our relatives wanted to wear them in the 40 - 45 degree heat we were living in.
This product is certainly something that more people should take in their travel bag, especially when travelling with children. They worked a treat to keep them cooler and no sunburnt noses!!
What a wonderful product you have. I would certainly recommend it to everyone.

Have been telling everyone about your cool products !
Am loving your cool snake during our heat wave especially on Australia Day when I was working, doing Temporary Tattoos, in the sun in the 42 degree heat!!! I had told you
I thought my brother bought one of these years ago at Tamworth Country Music.
Would you believe it ? I found my brothers old necktie, the one which I said was very good one, and it turned out it was one of your products, a cool snake as well!
It was in a bag, with your packaging and had your photo and I thought that was such a big coincidence.
Have talked to many people and they are looking to get your products and I would like to now order one of your Cool Hats for my Mum's friend, just like my Mum bought from you.

Cannot believe how good these Cool Snakes are
Dear Ken & Kathie
Just used the Neck Tie Cooler for the first time. 40oC here in New Mexico today. Unbelievable that such a slim "snake" can produce such a fabulous cooling feeling, with no drips or bulkiness.
Thank you !"

Cannot live without my Cool Hat !
My hat goes on first thing in the morning and stays on all day without me even being aware that it is on my head.
The wide brim provides all the protection I need for my face and neck.
And cleaning is as easy as throwing it in the washing machine.
I would recommend these hats to anyone who spends a lot of time in the direct sun.

Absolute best way to fundraise
We used the fantastic neck tie coolers for our Student Representatives Council Fund Raising Day and it was a great success! Not only did we raise one of the highest amounts we've ever raised at Deepdene Primary School, but we all kept cool in summer as well!
All proceeds went towards SchoolAid's appeal to help Haiti. We were one of the top donators for this cause !
Thanks so much for making our event so special and memorable.

Harley Owners share their thoughts on the coolers
Comments from attendees at the Western Australian Harley Owners Group State Rally in Augusta in 2010.
"Kept me cool in 37+ degree temperatures in summer. Great Product"
Cally Arrita, Secretary Harley Owners Group, Perth Chapter
"I've been looking for something like this since coming to Australia from Canada.
Really effective product"
Rod Arrieta, Assistant Director Harley Owners Group, Perth Chapter
"Hi Barney, Just a quick note to thank you for all your efforts in putting together what was a very successful State Rally at Augusta. I was very impressed with the rally pack and in particular the cool tie. As you are aware it was quite a hot weekend and the ride home was an endurance test.
I found the cool tie stayed cool for several hours and because it was tied around my neck it kept the blood flowing to my head and definitely a noticeable difference in helmet comfort.
It is a shame that the organisers of the national rally in Tasmania had not had the same idea as it would have made the 50degree trip back across the Nullarbor a lot more pleasant.
For all you macho boys out there riding in your tee shirts here are a couple of tips for staying cool on those hot rides.
Grab your cool tie, it does work!
You will never see an Arab in the desert with a tee shirt on. Keep your jacket on, wet the inside lining and sleeves, open the cuffs and allow the breeze to blow in! You now have your own evaporative air conditioning.
Thanks Again Barney.

Grey Nomads: these are the best !
I was lucky enough to be given two "Neck Coolers" by Kathie when we met at Mattaranka, in the Northern Territory. These "Neck Coolers" came in handy while we were caravaning around Australia.
Coming from the Queensland heat, to the extreme heat of the Territory, Western Australia and South Australia these ties were used every day.
After meeting Kathy by chance again in Tamworth, my friend Kay and I both decided to purchase a "Super Cool Hat" and another "Neck Cooler".
We would both recommend both these products to all, to play sport and for casual wear. There are many colours to choose from.
Thanks again Kathy.

I had to eat my words after these coolers saved me at a music festival..
After many years of hearing, but not actually believing, these neck tie coolers actually cooled you down, my awakening came in the form of an unbelievable hot festive day at this year's Mudgee Day on the Green.
Basking in the November sun with my neck tie cooler on, I was in heaven:
great music, great company and I was so cool and refreshed.
Get your self one !
I now have quite a few piled in the fridge ready for tennis
or for my children to use to beat the heat.

This cooler has pride of place in my bike pannier
Dear Ken & Kathie
Thank you for the opportunity to road test the Necktie Cooler on my recent motorcycle trip to Phillip Island for the GP races. We travelled approx 3000kms on the trip with two days of wet weather from Sydney to Phillip Island, so no opportunity to try the cooler there. At the races Phillip Island was its usual freezing self so again no opportunity to try it out.
On our return via The Great Ocean Road, Warrnambool, Grampians & Swan Hill we hit some very hot weather in the region of 35 deg C. I soaked the Necktie cooler in water at a pub in Penshurst and was surprised to see the way it soaked up the water and expanded. The result was amazing, with the wind constantly against the cooler around my neck I felt cool and comfortable.
I used it through to Swan Hill where temperatures got up to 38 deg C; we then travelled across to Deniliquin and Albury with temperatures ranging from 30 deg C to 38 deg C and I took several opportunities to re soak the cooler and it worked a treat.
It now has pride of place in my pannier bag; I won't leave home without it.

My late father got such relief from your coolers.
My name is Mark Jenner and I was born and bred in a small town called Barraba NSW, which is 100kms north of Tamworth. After moving away and interstate, I have always come home back home with my wife, my 19 year old son and my 2 year old daughter, and finally bought a house in Tamworth.
About 7 or 8 years ago, my wife and I went for a walk up Peel Stret Tamworth, as it was Country Music Festival time. It was a very hot day and we came across a stall that sold Neck Tie Coolers and Cool Hats which I purchased one of each straight away and put it on there and then. It cooled me down in only a matter of minutes and I felt better for having it on.
Each year at Festival time the only time I go over the street is to catch up with the same friendly couple every year.
In February 2005, my late father was given 4 to 6 months to live with cancer. From the day he was diagnosed with this nasty disease he stayed in the comfort of my house until he took his last breath on May 10, 2005 as he did not want to die in hospital. I can honestly tell you that nearing his end with high temps, as he could not take oral medication, and suppositories were very little comfort to him, my Dad found comfort and relief very quickly from the Neck Tie Cooler.
Now he has passed, every time I have my particular blue neck tie cooler on (which is the one my Dad used to wear) the memories come back.
I am honestly not just giving you readers a sob story. Just keep
your eye out for this great Aussie product and just try one. I Can
guarantee you will not be disappointed. Also, finally this great
product supports cancer research into that very nasty cruel
unforgiving demoralising cancer.
PS I love you Dad.

Every Equestrian should have these.
I really think everyone MUST learn about these neck ties & hat pads! This is the very best thing that I have ever used in all my riding years! & I have been in the saddle since I was 4 years old!
I have used the neck tie last summer for the 1st time, & I also used a hat pad in my riding helmet. Well! I could NOT believe how much difference they made! In fact I felt very cruel when I kept riding my Dressage horse through a very hot day; got carried away with the training because a felt so comfortable, only to notice my horse had got extremely hot! I had forgotten how hot the day was! I had to get off & hose him down! Now I am very aware not to overwork him when I ride with my coolers on!
The other thing is; when I have some stock work to do, I wear my coolers, in the hat & around my neck, & when I feel them losing their effect after a few hours, I stop & dump them in the creek, swing them around like a billy tea to cool them down even more, put them back on, & my neck & head immediately freezes again
I DO know the coolers work; hats why I will continue to
let everybody know about them. They just dont know what
they are missing if they dont wear them!
Have a cool day,
