I tried a Cool-Cat Pro the other day. I'm glad I did.
The Cool-Cat is made by really cool cats up in Georgia -- Matt and Carolyn Womack. The Cool-Cat Pro basically is sun protection for the face, neck and head if you're out on the water. It has other uses, but you can visit Cool Cat's website: https://www.coolcatpro.com/

I wear lots of sun protection when I'm on the water. I wear a cap or hat (I love my new Tilley Hat), sunglasses, sunscreen and my new Cool-Cat Pro. I also wear gloves to keep the back of my hands from getting weathered and sunburned.
But we're discussing the Cool-Cat Pro here, so we'll stick to the topic.
I have a white Cool-Cat and a gray Cool Cat. The company offers several other colors, including orange, blue, yellow, pink and black. I'd be interested in Cool-Cats with some sort of outdoor-oriented pattern, but that's not offered -- yet.
I just slip my Cool-Cat Pro on before I leave the house and I'm good for the day. If the sun is particularly brutal (which it often is here in Florida), I can pull it up over my face to give myself some extra protection. They're made of polyester micro-fiber and carry a UPF 30 ratings. What that rating means is that you will be protected 30 times longer than if you went out unprotected.
The Cool-cat also has snaps on the back which can be used to tighten it up when folded and used as a headband or wristband. It's the only gaiter that comes with snaps as far as I know.
We don't have to worry about cold weather much in Florida, but in those rare instances we can pull the Cool-Cat Pro up over our face to provide some warmth. I remember my days in bass tournaments, running 60 miles per hour in the stinging cold.
I do all of my fishing from a kayak these days, so I don't think I'll have that problem again.
Women love Cool-Cats because they can be used as a head cover or head band.
The possibilities are limitless.
Do yourself a favor. Get yourself a Cool-Cat Pro . You'll protect skin and you'll be glad you did!
