Bought 3 of these-2 for gifts, one for me. One gift not given yet, one recipient very pleased.My feeling is that the towel is rather large and the texture is somewhat unpleasant. That said, it IS delightfully cool and stays that way as long as wet. I hope washing will improve the texture and, yes, I know these are made in smaller sizes. Mine is mainly for hot flashes but my two gifts are for people who work out pretty hard, so it's great for that. I think I'll appreciate this more when lawncare season comes back around!

This is great. The texture is a little odd but it works so well, who cares? I bought one of these as a gift for a friend who works out a lot and I can't wait to give it to him.

I have not tried this product yet. It is a Christmas Gift this year, So I would be happy if it does half of whatit claims to do.

I bought one a few years ago and it still keeps me cool. I bought two more, one for my sister who loves to play tennis in the heat! Mine gets used almost every day in the summer when I go for my daily walks. Don't think I would make it through the heat without this. It is easy to use and really keeps cool for at least an hour no matter how hot it is. Great product.

What a find! I actually bought two of them, and kept one as is while cutting the second one in half so I had two smaller ones. I take medication which has a side effect of heavy sweating, and I have always perspired rather heavily, so finding something like this was a Godsend. Closing my smaller ones in a zip lock bag works as well as using the case in which this item is shipped. I now plan to keep one in my purse. Even after days, they stay damp and cool and feel very refreshing. Sometimes, I roll the towel up lengthwise and clip it around my neck. And it goes without saying that it always goes to the health club with me and on my outdoor walks.

I wear this towel around my neck when I go to the gym, and it feels wonderful! Stays cool all through my workout. I would recommend this to anyone who gets on the "warm" side.

The Chill Towel is like a miracle cloth. It is exactly as presented. I have a torn ligament in my shoulder and the towel is just cold enough to help and not so cold that I worry about having it on for lengthy periods of time. No fuss, no having to wrap it in a towel because it is too cold and it stays cold for hours. An added plus is that my shirt does not feel wet to the touch, so it is very comfortable. Everyone need this Chill Towel !!!

I do Zumba and get very hot and red in my face. This towel really cools me down fast. It feels great around my neck too. It stays cold for a long time. You just shake it in between and it is cold again. Just wet it thoroughly with cold water, no refrigeration needed.

My husband uses this towel all summer when he's out in the yard. In our hot semi-desert climate it's perfect for keeping cool longer.

Love this towel. Took it to Disney World. It was hot and humid. The towel is quite large. I cut it in half horizontally and it was still large enough the fold two time and simply wrap around my neck and tuck the ends into my shirt. A couple of times a day I rinsed in cold water and twisted till just really damp. It made our day so much better. I will purchase more for my daughter to take to the gym. Love it!

I don't know that this is a whole lot better than having just a damp towel on your neck. It does warm up rather quickly requiring you to take it off and shake it for several seconds. I would not have purchased it knowing what I know now.

Could not believe how arctic it felt! Will be bringing to my exercise class to keep me in balance temp-wise.

Great for hot flashes! My dog, Raleigh, is miserable in the heat of summer and he actually stopped panting and pacing when we laid the chill towel over him.

I originally bought the Arctic Chill Towel for myself at the gym, but before I got a chance to try it out, I gave it away to my daughter who HATES to sweat on the elliptical machine. She loves it!! She said she would recommend it to everyone who asks about it. Now I can't wait to get my own!

These came the week before the heat wave hit in Ohio and both guys took them to work and used them. Another guy at the shop has 2 of them. Got thumbs up on the towels!!

I got this one for my husband, who is always complaining of the heat. We've tried other advertised-on-tv doodads that didn't work or were so messy but this one is fantastic! It works just as advertised and is so easy even my husband can do it. I'm coming back for more of these! Thanks!

I have severe hot flashes, and love to work outside in the yard. During the summer months, this is difficult, because I get over heated very quickly, and have to go inside. I used this towel for the 1st time, helping my husband pressure wash our driveway, and it worked like a charm! It kept me cool, and works wonderful! We have lots of humidity, and this was a perfect way to stay cool! Will also be using it when we have company, to go to the amusement park! Wonderful product!!

I finally opened this package today since we are having temperatures in the 90's. Since I get physically sick with the heat & humidity this item seemed like a good solution. Not so. First, it's like a rubber mat. Yes, it's cool to the touch, but unless you want to keep putting it on & taking it off your skin every couple of seconds, this does nothing to cool you down if you put it on your skin longer than 5 minutes. My body heat dries it out . . .

This is a must have if you are peri-menopausal, actively menopausal, or past menopause! Ever since my surgical menopause, I sweat profusely--from my neck and head! Which looks really strange. I'm perfectly dry--but my hair, face and neck are dripping with sweat! This is the answer to my prayers. Keeps my head dry and cool. Well worth the price.

I got one as a present to my 83 year old mother who volunteers with other retired teachers at a book sale. Their storage unit is not air conditioned, yet they worked in it one morning a week all summer, preparing for their benefit sale. Mom said she shared her chill towel with the others, and they loved it!

This towel is amazing in this summer of excessive heat and drought, providing enough cool comfort to let you raise the thermostat a few points. You are cool while you save the cost of the towel.

I sent this to my son-in-law, who leaves his condo at 6:30 in the morning and doesn't get home until almost 6:00 in the evening. As he doesn't leave his air conditioning on all day, the condo is an oven when he returns. The day he received the package, he said he immediately moistened it and draped it around his neck - it made life a pleasure until the A/C did its job. "Great Gift," he emailed me.

This product absolutely works. The chill can be felt and all you have to do is wet the cloth, ring it, and shake it. And it is such a blessing on a hot day. I recommend everyone buy one.

It's okay, but somewhat bulky when draped around my neck. It stays cool for a long time.

I have loved every product I have purchased from Isabella until this one. It looks and feels nothing like the linen-ish cloth in the image: it is more like a miniature perforated rubber yoga mat. As for Arctic, only if global warming has succeeded in melting the ice cap. It is coolish if you keep it indoors in air-conditioning and leave it in its container most of the time. I am going to try refrigerating it to see if that helps any. I live in south Louisiana and am of hot flash age, so I was really hoping for a little relief. I'm afraid it doesn't help.

Towel really stays cold and really helped when the weather was in the 90's and 100's. I did not give it 5 stars cause I am not crazy about how it feels against skin. But it definitely works. My significant other used it on his achy knee. I also used it when my dog got overheated.

The towel felt cool to the touch, but really didn't help cool off my husband's head and ears that frequently get red and hot.
