What exactly is a
GlacierBand is a remarkable cooling
neckband that works through the power of evaporation. Simply soak it in water, put it around your neck, and it keeps you
cool for days. GlacierBand is reusable, and is very comfortable to wear.
How does GlacierBand work?
GlacierBand is filled with a polymer
gel that absorbs water, swelling to thousands of times its normal size.
The gel immediately dry almost immediately, releasing water through evaporation. This water vapor keeps you cool. It's
amazingly simple, yet incredibly effective.
Will this really keep me cool?
Yes. GlacierBands will keep you very cool.
It lasts for days, and the cooling effect around your neck lowers the
temperature of your entire body. GlacierBands will keep you
unbelievably cool this summer.
How long will GlacierBand stay cool?
GlacierBands will stay cool for two or three
days at a minimum. If you squeeze it once or twice a day to redistribute
the gel and keep it "active," it
will probably stay cool for close to a week.
Is it heavy?
GlacierBands weigh almost nothing dry,
and only a few ounces soaking wet.
Does it need batteries?
GlacierBands do not need batteries. All
they need is some cool water.
Will I have to carry a cooler full of ice?
No. You don't need ice at
all to cool GlacierBands. You might want to put some ice in the water when
you soak it, but you don't have to, and if you soak it before you leave
home it won't need any maintenance at all for days.
kinds of activities can I use this for?
You can wear GlacierBands any time you're
outside--working in the garden, playing basketball, riding bikes, walking,
even driving to the grocery store before the car gets cooled off.

GlacierBands. Using our neckband does not normally cause a rash; however, if

How do I activate

minutes, and it will stay cool for days. If you need it in a hurry, you can
soak it for five minutes and get several hours of cooling. The cooler the
water, the cooler the band; adding ice will make it even cooler.
Is GlacierBands reusable?
Yes. GlacierBands can be used thousands
of time. The neckband will dry to its original size and can be stored in a
drawer, cabinet or first aid kit. If you'd like to have GlacierBands
always ready, you can store the wet neckband in a plastic bag in the
