Before I saw the Ontel Arctic Cooling Cap displayed in an Ace Hardware Store in Pasadena, CA I had never heard of it. The promotional signage said “As seen on TV” but I don’t watch much TV. It’s only $20, so I decided to give it a try.
As I mention in the video below, it really does work. I felt the cooling effects, for sure.

What I like about the Arctic brand cooling hat:
- It really does keep you cooler
- Costs about the same as a cap of similar quality
- Super easy to adjust the size
- Very comfortable fit with great ventilation
- Reflective bill and cap reduce heat from sunlight
- Material wicks moisture when dry, keeps your head cool when wet
- Since it’s designed to get wet, you can (hand) wash it often
What I don’t like about the hat
As of yet, I have no dislikes about the Arctic cooling hat. It’s not exactly stylish, so I guess I could ding it for that. Then again, I haven’t seen too many hats out on hiking trails that are stylish. Function is definitely more important than form when it comes to outdoor gear.

Full disclosure: if you buy the hat by clicking on the link above, I’ll get a small (real small) commission. That’s not why I’m recommending it. I really think this hat is worth the money and I now wear mine several times a week.

I just saw they make a wide brim hat like that, too, which might be great.
Thanks for letting me know about the wide brim hat. I just linked it up on the blog post as well.
Interesting! I rarely wear hats anymore although I used to wear ones for fashion. I have a Raiders baseball hat but quit wearing that hiking as I just ended up feeling hotter. So I might try this!
I know what you mean. Seems like with other hats and I always end up just carrying them once my head starts sweating.
