All are either Amazon Best Sellers or Amazon Choice products and have a rating of B or better from Fakespot, which analyses user reviews for authenticity. And all cost less than $30, so your wallet won’t perspire, either.
Frogg Toggs Chilly Pad cooling towel
Soak this towel in cold water and wrap it around your neck, and it’ll help keep you cool when you’re out in the sun. According to the company, the towel will reduce the ambient temperature by 30 degrees (F), and it should work for up to 4 hours before it needs another soak. The towel measures 33 x 13 inches and comes in 13 different colors, including some high-visibility neon green, orange and yellow.
Bud Light cooler/Bluetooth speaker
Bud Light may not be the greatest beer, but this portable cooler will at least keep your brews cold, while also playing your favorite tunes. It can fit up to 24 12-ounce cans, more than enough for a day at the beach, and the device’s dual speakers, while not of the greatest quality, can still provide some entertainment. You can connect a phone or tablet to them via Bluetooth or a 3.5mm audio jack. If the blue Bud Light styling isn’t to your liking, you can opt for the classic red Budweiser version.
AZCoolMist fan ring
Give your fan a little extra cooling oomph by adding a misting ring. This kit, which is available in lengths from 8 to 16 inches, and with two to five brass nozzles, connects to a standard garden hose. It provides a fine mist of water, which the fan then blows into the air.
Intex inflatable pool
When the town pool is just too far away, this backyard pool could be just the thing to help you cool off.

The pool has two inflatable chambers and comes with a repair patch kit in case of a puncture. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
