Like the other Ergodyne products with "CT" in the product number: it contains a synthetic band ("cooling towel") that acts as an evaporative cooler. The hat is light and ventilated The towel is quickly refreshed and does provide a little cooling. I would recommend this product for folks that need to be noticed and want a wide brimmed hat with a little extra cooling property. As with all evaporative cooling products it works best in low humidity.
Consider also: Frogg Toggs Chilly Dana Cooling Bandanas (multiple colors/vendors/prices). They use the same technology but have much more fabric and stay wet longer and contact more skin surface. They can be worn on the neck, or, if a wide brimmed hat is not your thing they work well as headbands.
You might also consider Ice Bandana (TM) - Blue/Black. This product contains a freezable ice packet. It works best if you are not out in the sun long or if the humidity is high, and you have the ability to frequently replace the ice packet (access to a freezer or ice chest (requires multiple ice inserts) along with a couple minutes every half hour or so). It does not have the damp feel that is common to all the evaporative cooling products.
I am personally not as big a fan of the absorbent jell style cooling bandanas, they do stay wet quite awhile, but I think the Frogg Toggs bandanas feel cooler.
The first time I put the hat on I was confused because it was so small. No way the hat was an XL. I soon realized that the stiff, blue hatband was actually the "cooling towel" and despite the picture above showing it folded up inside the hat, it is supposed to be folded down and worn over my forehead OUTSIDE the hat. Ok, now it fits.
But this leads me to my biggest complaint about the hat--you must soak it in water EVERY TIME you wear it, even in cooler temperatures when you don't necessarily need the cooling towel function. It's not removable, you can't fold it up out of the way inside the hat because it makes the hat WAY too small, and you can't wear it dry because the towel is stiff, abrasive and cardboard-like until it's wet making it way to uncomfortable.
On the positive side, the cooling band seems to do its job.. I don't perspire as much although it doesn't feel cold or cool against my skin.
This hat would be 5 stars if the hatband/cooling towel were either removable or a separate piece OR if I wanted to cooling towel function every time I wore the hat.
