If you watch any swimming or diving competition, you’re sure to see athletes using a quick-wicking chamois. And, chances are, that that towel is a Super Cool-n-Dry! Invented by 3-time Olympic medal winner, Sammy Lee, the “Super Cool” towel is the ultimate poolside accessory. Its unique construction allows it to quickly and easily wick water from the skin. And unlike traditional terry cloth towels, the Cool-n-Dry is easily wrung out and can be used over and over to remove water.
The Super Cool-n-Dry Towel measures 13”x17”. It’s so compact, yet so efficient, that it’s perfect for travel. It’s not unlike the Discovery Trekking Outfitters Wicking Towel, which takes the form of a more traditional towel, yet wicks water away and dissipates it quickly. Keep a Cool-n-Dry one in your swim gear bag and have a fast drying chamois towel on hand at all times. Toss a towel into one of the many specialized compartments of the Speedo Pro Backpack and bring it along with you no matter where you swim. The towel comes with a reusable, plastic carrying case that’s easily thrown in with swim gear, athletic equipment and is ideal for storing in the trunk of your car in case of any spill or clean-up emergency. While the available size is perfect for drying off, the Cool-n-Dry can easily be cut into smaller sections with a pair of sharp scissors. Smaller sections of the chamois can be used to dry individual swim and athletic gear. If you’re interested in using the Super towel for your organized sports team, inquire directly about purchasing the Cool-n-Dry without labels or packaging for a reduction in cost.
Great For All Outdoor Activities
While the Super Cool-n-Dry is ideal for the pool, it’s also a great take-along during any outdoor activity. The towel can be used to wipe away perspiration, to keep hands dry and clean, and to clean up spills or messes. Because it is machine washable, a dirty Cool-n-Dry towel can be thrown in with any regular load. The unique chamois material can even be used to keep you cool on hot days. While the smooth side is specifically designed to absorb water, the textured side is for cooling down. Because the small perforations in the chamois material help evaporate water extremely quickly, the temperature of the towel (when wet) stays refreshingly cool. This is just one of the many reasons so many people call this the “Super Cool” towel.
The AquaGear Opinion
The Super Cool-n-Dry Towel is a well-known product around the AquaGear test pool. In fact, all the testers already own one! The swimmers really love the product because it is compact enough for travel, but large and absorbent enough for after-shower use. The towel can easily be thrown into the washing machine and quickly hang dries. Although it sounds contrary to what you would normally think, testers recommend you use the chamois when wet for best results. And if the Super Cool-n-Dry ever becomes dried out and stiff, it’s easily brought back to life with a little warm water.
The Bottom Line
If you spend any time in or around the pool, a Super Cool-n-Dry towel is a must. Pick yours up today at AquaGear.com!
