If you can't wait to spend the summer outdoors but can't stand the thought of overheating, I am with you. This towel will be your simple solution — it's perfect for keeping you cool during yard work, tanning, hiking, camping, you name it.

To activate it, all you have to do is soak it, wring it out and snap it in the air 3-5 times. It has a mesh texture and is woven with 100 per cent soft cool bamboo fibre, allowing the water to evaporate faster.

Whether you want to wrap it around your neck, head, arms or wherever, it will work to instantly cool you down (without making you sopping wet). And it claims to stay cool for up to three hours.

It comes in a little carrying bottle with a clip on the handle, so you can conveniently attach it to backpacks and beach bags.

With more than 2,700 five-star reviews, this towel seems to be winning over reviewers. Shoppers call this product "awesome" — even those who were "a bit skeptical" at first.

One person claims it's "great for people and pets," which is perfect for preventing your furry friends from overheating this summer.

Another shopper said they're "pleasantly surprised" that it "actually stays cold/cool enough" while they're working out.

A third customer brought these on vacation and said they "will not go anywhere without them" now. They said they worked great as scarves on their "neck [and] head" in 43°C weather.

Although one person said the "thinness of the towel is nice," they also claimed that you can get the same effect "with a normal towel."

An important thing to note is that you have to shake it a few times every so often to keep it cool, which seemed to inconvenience some shoppers.
