The Cobber is a Body Cooling Neck Wrap, originally designed to tackle the blistering Australian climate.
It has been successfully sold over the past ten years to aid against heat discomfort. We call it a Cobber because it's everybody's friend!
This unique product is based on the same principles as the great Coolgardie Safe and the Hessian Water Bag, both of which were used by Australians for many years prior to the introduction of the common refrigerator. These two products were the only means of keeping water and basic dairy foods cool through the hot summer climate.
The process was quite a simple one! The Coolgardie Safe was usually made into a wooden rectangular box shape with the front being made of a mesh type material. The front was then covered with a piece of hessian material that had been soaked in water. As the bag draped over the unit and the end lay in a pull out tray that was filled with water, the hessian absorbed the moisture and therefore remained wet. The air would flow through the material freely enabling everything to stay cool.
Our Body Cooling neck wraps are made of polyester & cotton and filled with polycrystals. By simply placing the neck wrap in clean water for approximately 30 minutes allowing the crystals to expand, produces an evaporative cooling system for the user when placed around the neck.
This Body Cooling neck wrap lowers the body temperature by cooling the carotid arteries of the neck. The material may become warm against the skin but by simply rotating the wrap, the cooling effect is rejuvenated immediately!
