Is there an ice pack collar to keep you cool?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I seem to remember about 10 years seeing some sort of neck wrap with cells in it for ice that golfers could wear to keep their core temperature down.

Is there something like that for bikers? I certainly could use it - just got back from an uphill TT run in 103 degree heat and went through three bottles of water!

Wish that I could drag my a$$ up at 4:00 am when it's only 85 outside.

I've seen scarf/headsock type things in hunting/law enforcement/SRT/redneck-porn catalogs. Supposedly pull the heat from you to keep cool, they're only $8-9US.

Turns you gay.Hee-hee.

I dunno. Happy Gilmore is a bad mother****er.



On topic, there is this but it looks bulky. I've seen smaller bands advertised on TV. Sharper Image, perhaps?

Campmor.com has this thing called a blubandoo neckbandoo - they say: Soak your BluBandoo® cooling neckband in water for only five minutes to keep cool for hours. Contains non-toxic, high-performance, five-minute hydrating crystals. My girlfriend uses one and likes it.

What brand, etc. is this? Any idea? These things really work ... for motorcycling under leather gear also. This is a nice light one.
