PITTSBURGH, PA – April 16, 2014 –

Pro Towels adds Frigitowel, a 100% cotton cooling towel, to their product line. The Frigitowel is cool right out of the bag and features a one-time use cooling sensation that lasts for hours. There is no need to activate with water, and unlike most traditional cooling towels, no need to reactivate. The Frigitowel is perfect for athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, the military, and construction workers. “The Frigitowel is a great addition to our successful line of fitness towels,” says Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Brian Porter, “and it sets itself apart from the competition in regards to its versatility and price point.”
To activate the towel’s cooling properties it must be removed from the packaging, shaken until completely unfolded, and then placed around the neck. The towel will become significantly colder than the ambient air temperature and has a clean citrus scent. For maximum cooling effect, it is recommended to keep the towel secure around your neck and occasionally reposition as needed. When the cooling sensation is no longer active the towel itself can be used over and over again.
