Earlier in July, Western North America was going through a major heat wave. Though it has cooled off slightly, Saskatoon Summers can still be scorchers! With air conditioners potentially breaking down, it can be hard to keep cool in these extreme weather conditions. But do not panic, MOBO’s always got you covered! Keep reading to find out about some products we recommend to help keep you cool during these hot summer days.
Sweating is essential because it keeps your body from overheating. If you’re sweating because you’re overheated, staying hydrated is one of the best ways you can support your body and help it cool off. When the heat is extreme, you may sweat more and need to drink more to offset those lost fluids. A great water bottle for this is our vacuum insulated half gallon Asobu water bottle. It can be used as an ice bucket, beer growler, water jug and storage container. This incredible 2 liter/ half gallon jug is ideal for camping, back yard entertaining, beach activity, pool side, BBQ’s and other outdoor activities. It can be used for both hot and cold storage functions. An additional silicone dog bowl for base is available to help keep your fury friends hydrated as well.
Though you may be tempted to reach for your 100% polyester t-shirt during these hot summer days, we recommend a cotton shirt. Cotton is a lot more breathable than polyester and will keep your body temperature lower with air flowing on your skin. Our recommendation is the Ethica unisex crewneck t-shirt. Solid colors of this shirt feature 100% organic cotton and it is made in Canada. Another choice that is both cotton and polyester is the Cooling Temp-iQ Performance Short Sleeve T-Shirt. The advanced Temp-iQ technology has your back when things heat up by responding to skin temperature, providing active cooling when you need it the most.
Whether you are working outside all day or just decide to do some physical activity, this product is great to have on hand. The Mission Enduracool Large Cooling Towel/Face Cover cools instantly to 30 degrees below average body temperature and stays cool for up to 2 hours when wet. It’s made from performance fabric that instantly cools when soaked with water, wrung out, and then snapped in the air to activate the cooling properties.
Another portable cooling product is the Dual Breeze Neck Fan. Easy to wear around the back your neck like headphones for on-the-go or can stand on a desk or table. Both fan heads have 3 speeds and rotate 360 degrees. This neck fan runs up to 4 hours on a single charge. Though it can’t run all day, this neat product can help keep you cool during the hottest hours!
Cool Sun Cold Pack
Something fun that will keep you cool in the sun is this Cool Sun Cold Pack. Though these are normally used for health or medical reasons, this cold pack can definitely be used to cool you off on a hot summer day. These even come in handy to treat a sunburn. An ice pack or cool, wet towel can relieve inflammation.
Slim Can Kuzie
Though it is recommended to drink lots of water on extremely hot days, it doesn’t hurt to have one or two alcoholic beverages. The Asobu Insulated Slim Can Kuzie is ideal for keeping your drinks chilled. The slim double wall vacuum insulated sleeve fits over a standard 12 oz straight up slim cans. Chill out with a nice hard seltzer that twill remain cold all day! This product also happens to be our featured product of the week, so make sure to go check that out!

This ideal tote is insulated with PEVA liner with two self-material handles/shoulder straps. This tote design can hold up 24 cans and its deep interior is perfect for larger and taller items.
