F09243 - Set of 6 Cool Downz Water Activated Cooling Wraps
waste of money
i went by what the qvc promoter and sponsor said. wrong to trust them. i should have read the reviews first. lesson learned. these stayed cool for about fifteen minutes at most. i am embarassed to say i gave them as gifts, before i test drove them. there are still some hot sweaty gardeners who are not enjoying their gifts.
they did what i needed it to do at the time
i ordered these and they are ok just wish they stayed colder longer but at the time i needed them it was better then nothing and just to put them in water to get them going again was a plus to me
NOT LIKE ONES ORDERED IN PAST
THOUGHT THESE WOULD BE SIMILIAR TO THE ONES I ORDERED FROM QVC IN THE PAST. NOT SO. SAVE YOUR MONEY.
Don't waste your money
These do not work as advertised. The first couple of times they were ok, but after that they did not stay cool for more than an hour.
Didn't work for me.
I have been watching the shows on this item and finally gave in to try it. It did not work. REally, did not work. I was so disappointed. I needed something cool for when we go to PHilllies games in the day. Total waste of money. Sorry. Sent them back.
Does not Cool - Waste of Money!!!!
I am a female in my fifties. I thought these might help with hot flashes. I also thought they might help in the 100 degree temperature and when I get so hot in stores when I go shopping. Other than being cool just from wetting with water, these warm to your body temperature within a minute or two of wearing. These did not make me cooler at all - I am always burning up just like I was before. The solid colors were sold out, and I ordered the patterns. With the exception of the one with the flag pattern, these were some of the ugliest colors and patterns I've seen. I wouldn't have cared if they had worked. Complete waste of money and too late to return!!!
I bought a set of these because I work in a hot kitchen every day. They don't stay cold or cool or more than 5 minutes. They are, I think, too short, and too small. I have 2 older ones. I think I will return these when they dry out and I'll continue using the older ones.
HUGE HIT IN MY FAMILY!
Bought these before summer, in preparation for some family outdoor ed, and kids camps. Kids and husband love these. Hard for husband to admit since he was mad that I bought another "nick nack"! When it's hot, and your in the elements, these really help keep you from feeling exhausted from heat and/or activity. We have used them at least twenty times, in past two months. I've even let my kids friends borrow them for a day or two. I priced these at a recreational store. Um, DEAL ALERT HERE...that's all I'm going to say. I suggest reading the directions before use. Do not put them in the freezer. One of our bands got put in freezer. It still works fine, but it feels mushier than the others. It probably altered the form of the water crystals. I hang dry for two days, when not in use. They return to their original form...bands with dry crystals inside them. Each band came attached with it's own manufacturing tag. You could give a few away as gifts. However, you only get one of the water level marked saturating bags. I just used a large ziplock bag to saturate several bands together. If you intend to use them several days in a row, just bag them, and put them in the refrigerator over night. Add water, if needed. You'll know when they need water. This made hem nice a cool, everyday while we needed them.
This is just a so-so, less than impressive product that's not worth exchanging. I don't think the product underperforms so much as the presentation over reached or perhaps over promised. There's a noticeable cooling effect; I'm just not impressed by it. Though, I suppose I should ask my dogs, I bought them for them.
They are VERY good!
I have had a set of these for 5 or 6 years. They are Great! They cool for at least 45 minutes and then you can turn them over for more cooling. Rotate to a new one when they don't cool any more. If you are outside you can carry a small cooler with ice water in it and rotate the scarf to keep cooler all day in the sun.
Clever & Cool!
My husband works outdoors and Michigan has been experiencing one of its hottest summers ever -- high 90's and even several 100 degree days already, and it's only mid-July. A friend recommended these wraps and they help tremendously! Because of the hot temps, he wears a wrap for about an hour or so, then swaps it for another. Once you've prepped a few of them, keep them in the refrigerator, or in a plastic baggie in a cooler, that way you'll always have a cold one ready!
I'll be using mine next weekend and expect to have just as good a result as he's had.
Not worth the money
I work in 100 degree weather and there is no way this item will keep you cool. I am sending them back. I bought 2 sets and thought some of my friends at work would like them. They also said they do not work.
