While we all know to limit our time outside during the sun's peak hours, sometimes our favourite summer activities take precedent; increasing our risk of dehydration and overheating. Luckily, there are helpful accessories, like the Ergodyne Chill-It 6603 Cooling Neck Wrap, that can help keep you comfortable, even on the hottest day.

What is it

The super absorbent Ergodyne Chill-It 6603 Cooling Neck Wrap helps lower your body temperature by up to seven degrees for up to four hours. 

To use, simply dunk or run the neck wrap under cool water for up to one minute and wring out the excess water before securing around your neck. The drip-free PVA material slowly evaporates over time, so you can stay cool and comfortable while you spend time outside. 

Once the wrap is dry, you can soak the wrap again for even more hot weather relief, making it ideal for anyone who works outside, spends time outdoors gardening, hiking or playing golf, or who may be experiencing hot flashes.

What people are saying

The Ergodyne Chill-It has earned more than 400 reviews from Amazon shoppers and a 4-star rating from customers who consider the wraps an asset for summer.

"They work well," one Amazon shopper wrote. "My husband has been using these for working outside in our 100 degree Virginia weather in August. The come in a nice resealable package that he likes to store them in. He also wears it for riding his Harley to work and says it really helps to cool him off. They look nice, too!"

"I use these all the time to work outside as a landscaper," another wrote. "These are the best. They work better than the ones my company handed out. I buy a couple packs to use; I wash them and then use them. Don't keep these in the freezer! I keep mine in the refrigerator."

The consensus among shoppers is that the Chill-It is a solid option for anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors in the summer - but depending on the temperature or how long you're outdoors, you might need to re-soak the cloth after an hour or so. 

Verdict

Even though we anxiously await its arrival all year, summer can quickly turn uncomfortable unless you have the right gear. 

The Ergodyne Chill-It is a great option for anyone who works outside and can't avoid the sun's peak hours. The handy pack of neck wraps can help keep you comfortable while protecting your neck from the sun's rays.
