John Glenn, the 'last true national hero,' dead at 95

Keep cool with the frogg toggs Chilly Pad

Beating the heat just got a little easier. The frogg toggs Chilly Pad is a cooling towel like no other to cool you down when you’re enduring outdoor heat and/or during physical activity.

The Chilly Pad is made out of a soft, hyper-evaporative material that retains water while remaining completely dry to the touch. When the towel is wet, it begins to evaporate and cool — providing soft, comfortable heat relief to the user. When it stops cooling, simply re-wet the towel with hot or cold water, wring it out and viola — it’s cool again in minutes.

The frogg toggs Chilly Pad comes in a variety of colors and measures 9.4 x 3 x 2.8 inches but can be cut down to whatever size is desired. Should the towel become dirty or soiled, simply machine or hand wash it with standard clothing detergent and rinse completely. Hang the towel to dry, or place it in a storage container. When storing it, (once washed) you may want to use the original storage tube that was included with the towel or store in a Ziploc bag. When you’re ready to use it again, just re-wet it. If cared for properly, your Chilly Pad should last for years.

The frogg toggs Chilly Pad is sold at Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Walmart stores and retail for $14.99.
