The Koolabanda is constructed from the highest quality 35% Cotton 65% Polyester fabric outer for premium quality and comfort. Cheaper competitors tend to use 100% polyester which feels less comfortable next to the skin when wetted, and can cause colour run to other clothing.
- Takes only 3-5 minutes soaking in cold water and it’s ready to use! Other similar products can take up to 1/2 hour!
- Your chilled bandana will last on average 4 hours depending on conditions. It can also be placed in the fridge or freezer for an extra boost while in its gel form.
- We use only the purest forms of non-toxic polymer.
- Koolabandas are manufactured to ISO9000 quality standards by an experienced UK military clothing manufacturer fully approved for MOD and public sector supply.
Now the technical bit!
We only use a polymer which is approved for use in the treatment of drinking water, the clarification of sugar and in the production of food-contact paper and board. It is completely safe and approved for skin and food contact applications. Polymer is produced from raw materials which are included in Annex 2 of Commission Directive 2002/72/EC of 6th August 2002 relating to plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs: List of Athorised monomers and starting substances. In short, completely non-toxic and safe.
There may be similar products on the market – only Koolabanda branded products use the purest polymer with the above certification.
