— Techniche ANZ HyperKewl Hat featured.
We recently had a customer that tested the cooling effect of our HyperKewl fabric when placed inside a hat using an insert. The results, as demonstrated below, were quite remarkable. There was over a 35 degree difference between the temperature at the brim and the temperature inside the hat when the insert was saturated (soaked in water). Now keep in mind that this was a basic test not conducted in a research facility, but would be more akin to field testing under various controls. Nonetheless, the results, or rather impact on cooling the individual, were impressive enough that I thought that I would share some of the data.
