Cooling neckties keep you cool outside in the heat whether you are going shopping, running a marathon or climbing up a rockface. Simple yet extremely effective, the neckties contain crystals that absorb up to 500 times their own weight in water. Just put the necktie in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes and you’re ready to go! Tie it around your neck and head and it will keep you cool as the water slowly evaporates from the surface of the necktie.
Ideal for playing sports, children, pets and people who enjoy being outdoors in hot countries. We can custom-brand the neckties with any logo and in any colour to make the perfect gift or marketing promotion for your company.
What are they?
Cool Banditz cooling neckties can be worn around the neck, forehead or wrist. They store water (with no dripping) and the water slowly evaporates from the surface of the necktie. Water absorbs heat energy as it evaporates, so the neckties continually draw heat out of the skin and bloodstream. The cooled blood then circulates throughout the body to help prevent increases in core body temperature and to minimise sweating.
How they work
- The neckties work simply using ‘evaporative cooling’
- They contain super-absorbent polymer crystals that can absorb up to 500 times their own weight in water and stay hydrated for days
- Storing the water in the polymer regulates the evaporation process over a long period of time, maximizing cooling abilities
- Simply soak your necktie in cold water for 5-10 minutes until the crystals absorb the water and start to swell
- A gel will develop within the necktie – this can now be evenly spread through using your fingers and squeezed periodically to redistribute cool gel within the necktie
- Gently squeeze or shake off any excess water
- Place the necktie on your preferred pulse point to benefit from its cooling effects
- Cool Banditz cooling neckties can reduce your body temperature by 3-5 degrees
- They help to reduce the risk of heat-related illness, heat stroke, heat stress, headache,
dizziness, nausea. They also help reduce accidents when using vehicles or machinery in hot conditions
- They provide a cooling solution for the body for a minimum of 48 hours
An increase in body temperature of 2oC can affect mental functioning. A 5 degree increase can result in serious illness such as heart attacks, falls, accidents with equipment and even death. A study carried out by the University of Liverpool, on location in the African desert, to investigate the effects of heat on psycho-motor abilities showed significant impairment in operating vehicles and machinery as external temperatures increased beyond 32oC.

Frequently asked questions
Can they be re-used?
Yes. After use the neckties can be re-soaked to maintain continual cooling. You do not have to completely dry out your necktie prior to re-soaking. If left to completely dry out, the crystals will return to their original form and can be re-used again and again by simply re-soaking in cold water for 5-10minutes.
How long do they last for?
The polymer crystals in the neckties are reusable for a minimum of 5 years.
Can they be washed?
Yes, wash gently in a mild detergent and hang to dry. DO NOT wash in a washing machine as this will cause the inner crystals to absorb water and therefore continue to swell, this could result in damage to your neckties.
Will they irritate the skin?
The materials used in the neckties are non toxic and will not cause irritation to the skin – see the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).
Are they available in different sizes?
Yes. The velcro band version is available in two sizes: S/M designed for neck size 14″ – 17″ and M/L designed for neck size 18″ – 21″. The tie version is a standard length that fits all.
What is the best way to store them?
If you plan to use your necktie daily, just hang it up after gentle washing and it is ready to go again after a short re-soak if necessary. When not in use, your necktie should be washed, thoroughly air dried until the gel has reverted back to its crystal form, then packed away in a dry environment so it is ready to use the next time you need it.
Can you re-soak in cold water to increase coolness?
You can easily re-soak the necktie in cold water to get a refreshing feel, however the main benefit is from using the evaporative cooling process to lower the temperature of your blood. It’s the continuous evaporation process that keeps you cool.
Will they make your clothes wet?
No, the necktie will not make your clothes wet or leave any residue. All the water is absorbed by the crystals and so it will not leak out.
