Wear this to keep sunstroke at bay

Heat stroke or sunstroke is an acute condition which occurs when the body produces or absorbs more heat than it can dissipate. Hyperthermia is the medical term. It is usually caused by prolonged exposure to high temperatures. The heat-regulating mechanisms of the body eventually become overwhelmed and unable to effectively deal with the heat, causing the body temperature to climb uncontrollably.

The “cooling cap” deals with the issues that almost all kinds of players face, when they are out on the ground. Heat stroke has become an issue for the people who are directly exposed to the sun. the cap having embedded cooling system with convective/conductive coolant tubes and removable gel pack helps in efficient transfer of heat from the head to the suuroundings.
