MISSION Athletecare continues to innovate in the cooling category. The company’s newly launched line of EnduraCool Instant Cooling Gear combats a universal issue associated with athletes: overheating. The range of wearable gear, powered by the brand’s patented “Coolcore” technology, includes Cooling Hoodies, Cooling Sleeves, Cooling Skull Caps, Cooling Helmet Liners and Cooling Headwear. As described the brand, the process of activating the cooling technology is as follows:
Athletes simply wet it, wring it out, and allow air to circulate into the fabric. The fabric cools to approximately 30 degrees below the average body temperature in under a minute, and the cooling effects – easily reactivated by re-wetting the fabric (with water or sweat) and re-introducing air flow – last for hours.
MISSION Athletecare’s complete line of performance products are designed specifically for athletes and endorsed by its athlete partners across the sports spectrum. … Read More »
