Summer months are fast approaching and for Hawaii, the heat makes us feel like it’s already here! Summer calls for being adventurous. Activities under the sun such as snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, surfing, sunbathing, and more are all viable options. Living in Hawaii, spending time at the beach is something we will be doing a lot. While we already go to the beach weekly throughout the year, it doesn’t get quite as hot as the high summer sun.
When it comes to being at the beach all day, we bring all our standard beach gear with us, including our chairs and tent. However, even if we have a tent, it can get uncomfortably hot. Although a tent provides some shade, Hawaii’s humidity makes staying inside it hot and sweaty. Recently, Mission Instant Cooling Gear was introduced to us, and after using it all day, it is how we will be staying cool and comfortable at the beach all summer long! It unquestionably helps when it comes to cooling down and staying cool, literally. With Mission’s awesome instant cooling technology that enhances the natural process of evaporation, we’re able to do more and stay longer at our favorite beach.
We’ve added some must-have items to take with us for an all-day beach day such as the Mission Cooling Performance Hat, Mission Original Cooling Towel, Mission Max Cooling Towel, and the Mission Cooling Compact Neck Gaiter. Mission Instant Cooling Gear cools you down within seconds and lasts for hours. The activation and reactivation process is so simple – just soak it in water, wring it out, and snap or wave in the air. Plus all of these items are machine washable, chemical free, and provide UPF 50 sun protection.
When taking a dip in the ocean, we usually bring our sunglasses. With the Mission Cooling Performance Hat, we’re able to protect our eyes and face from the sun with the UPF 50 sun protection and don’t have to worry about it coming off. It’s soft, lightweight (you almost forget it’s there) and snug on the head with the adjustable hook and loop closure. Once activated, the hat stays cool up to 2 hours and all you need to reactivate it is more water so it’s perfect for the beach.
This towel comes in handy when just laying around at the beach. In fact, it works so well, when we decide to take it off for a bit, we immediately realized how effective it is against the heat. When wind gently nudged the cooling towel off my shoulders, the temperature difference was very noticeable. The only body part that remained cool was wherever the Mission Cooling Towel covered. The Mission Original Cooling Towel provides UPF 50 sun protection and stays cool for up to 2 hours.
Mission Max Cooling Towel
This towel is similar to the Mission Original Cooling Towel but it is a larger size with 30% greater cooling power. It is an extremely lightweight towel with real cooling. It also has antimicrobial technology so it doesn’t develop odors.
The cooling gaiter has the same cooling technology but it also has multiple functions outside of wearing it on your neck, such as wearing it as a headband or a head wrap, or using it as a face mask to protect against sand at the beach. The Mission Cooling Compact Neck Gaiter is half the size of the standard neck gaiter with the same cooling power, up to 2 hours.
Hawaii has an average temperature of 88F/31C during peak summer, which means those beach days will be grueling if we aren’t prepared with protection! With all our Mission Instant Cooling Gear being great for both in and out of the water, we are set for the summer to stay cool and do more activities under the sun!
