Stay fresh for longer with Cool Worker


Feeling hot but refuse to wear those ice rings for the neck you see everywhere? Try the new and improved Cool Worker Cooling Sheet in Black. 

Lengthened from 50 cm to 75 cm, this non-woven cooling fabric is made to wear around your neck to prevent heatstroke. You can also use it to refreshen up after a long day outdoors by wiping it all over your face and body. The packaging has been updated to make it easier to bring around with you. 

According to the manufacturers, one of the main reasons for the new black color was so that it would be less eye-catching when wearing it with a suit or school uniform. 

Found in most drug stores and pharmacies, one pack of 20 sheets costs¥1,980.

Black attracts heat, so they should have gone with white.

It is fine to claim this can make you feel fresher, but to make the claim it prevents heatstroke seems excessive, how much does this decrease the risk? how does this compare with other measures used for the same purpose?

I use towels.

Details? What do you wipe all over your body? Is it a wet wipe for your neck? ? Are they reusable? How do they rate compared to the rings?

Is it disposable? Not sure I'd get it then. Also, those white plastic ice rings the article mentions last about 5 minutes in the heat.

I usually roll a couple of those tiny gel ice packs that cake shops give you in a tenugui and tie it around my neck. It's enough to keep me from sweating on my way to the station.
