The fabric of this Mission HydroActive Max does wick away sweat when using it in high heat. Instead of working to quickly absorb it so it can evaporate, the patented material does things a little differently. Since it enhances the way water is evaporated, it only improves the cooling power of the Mission HydroActive Max.
The Mission HydroActive Max is incredibly lightweight and wicks and absorbs moisture to repurpose into a cooling agent. This “radiator” style fabric that the Mission HydroActive Max is made from won’t feel like it is weighing you down. It will feel as light as it makes you feel when you use it to control sweat, making it an awesome product for those who get extra sweaty from head-to-toe.
This may seem excessively specific, but considering that you’re helping the moisture move throughout the material to go into the proprietary weave, it makes sense why it works. Unlike chemical-based towels, this works through the mechanics of the design and material itself. That adds some comfort into the convenience, knowing you’re not relying on chemicals to provide cooling.
Some reviewers didn’t like that they had to frequently “snap” this Mission HydroActive Max. Though this seems like a simple motion, many expected it to remain ultra-cool without any help. Since this is a mechanical cooling function, it does require the extra bit of effort, however. If you have to cool off to reinvigorate your physical fitness but don’t have the time, you don’t have to wait around to activate this since it has an instant effect. The wetting, wringing, and snapping alone do that for you.
In addition to the Mission HydroActive Max working conveniently, caring for it has never been easier. This is machine washed. Those who took it along with them on muddy fitness challenges were amazed at how it came completely clean in the wash. Products that are as easy to use as they are to care for are hard to find, and this one fits the bill.
The Mission HydroActive Max works completely mechanically, which means that its effectiveness won’t decrease over time due to use or washing. Polyvinyl acetate, or PVA, is what is used in many of the chemical towels. This will stop working overtime, unlike the Mission HydroActive Max.
The Mission HydroActive Max is relatively stain-resistant as well. It will wash to “like-new” even after extreme use. This does require a quick wash before your first use, as the possible transfer of substances from the factory can irritate the skin. This is the case with nearly all new fabrics, so it isn’t anything to be particularly concerned about with the Mission HydroActive Max.
In terms of durability when it is being put to the test, reviewers stated that the Mission HydroActive Max worked just as it said it would if it was being “snapped” often. As long as you are keeping it wet and allowing the fabric to be activated, you will have a chilled towel no matter the temperature.
It went from maybe a half-hour of effectiveness to up to two hours in the right conditions. This is a fantastic advancement for any cooling towel. This Mission HydroActive Max claims to be thirty percent more effective now and those using it seem to agree.
Snapping it into the air even without re-wetting boosts the longevity of the cooling. Some said it felt like it was straight out of a cooler or fridge when they used it. If you have tried a Mission HydroActive Max at some point in the past and didn’t feel it was up to snuff, it is deserving of another shot.
The softness of the material is incredibly important for a cooling towel because they are often rubbed against your skin to remove sweat and moisture. If the fibers aren’t very soft and forgiving, they can irritate. Since moisture increases friction, this can cause serious discomfort if you’re using a less-than-soft towel to wipe away face, neck, and forehead sweat. It can cause discomfort anywhere you wipe!
The Mission HydroActive Max is a polyester, nylon, and spandex combination. People sometimes avoid these materials due to thinking they’re low quality. These are the best possible athletic wear materials out there. They last forever, can have a silky smooth texture and wick away moisture, all while remaining lightweight.
This large-sized Mission HydroActive Max is the perfect length to toss over your shoulder on a hot day. With dimensions of 11 by 33 inches, this is quite substantial in size, without being bulky and creating more folds of fabric around your face and neck. If you have previously felt like you weren’t quite getting everything you could out of a cooling towel, this Mission HydroActive Max may be the answer.
Each pattern has a pop of color. There are gorgeous solids with standout trim. While it may seem like no big deal to be able to customize something to your tastes, it is refreshing to be able to love something you’re going to be using frequently. Using products that reflect your tastes is way more empowering than feeling like you got something just because you needed it, rather than you loved and wanted it.
This fabric is completely cool to the touch when following the instructions to activate the technology. Soft and chilly fabric will change the way you see cooling towels, especially those fueled by chemicals. The name of this towel comes from the namesake technology. HydroActive Max cooling technology works like a charm even on the hottest days. Gym-goers can also just toss this into their bag for a quick pick me up between sets.
For this technology to work at its maximum potential, you are going to want to increase the amount of fabric contact with your skin. The more contact it has, the larger the area it will cool. Taking a quick break to snap this Mission HydroActive Max and hang it over your head is all you need to keep you going on a particularly hot day.
Though the Mission HydroActive Max boasts some serious cooling power, some reviewers weren’t so crazy about its effectiveness. Some disliked how frequently it had to be reactivated in the heat. Despite this, the company says that their Mission HydroActive Max can give you 30 percent more cooling than previous models, as well as bringing down your body temperature up to 30 percent.
It seems that most of the doubts about the cooling power came from older reviews before the release of the newer Mission HydroActive Max. The product seems to have improved greatly with time. Also, it is worth mentioning any mechanically activated cooling towel will require reactivation in the hot sun. This says it can keep you cool up to two hours and it can go even longer with rewetting and reactivation.
If you have ever seen people with cooling towels draped over their heads to try to get a handle on excessive sweating, you can understand why the sun protection in this is important. This is a versatile product that won’t allow the sun to permeate it when wearing on your head or shoulder. With 50+ UPF you can feel protected by the Mission HydroActive Max.
Though not everyone liked having to reactivate the cooling process mechanically, this works wonderfully. Its long body perfectly wraps around your neck for portable relief of excessive perspiration. People looking to vamp up their workout routine can get the extra endurance they need with the power of the Mission HydroActive Max.
