How to Set Up Your Narwhals for Palm Cooling on the Road

No freezer, no problem!

You don’t always have access to a freezer when traveling to games, competitions, or on vacation. But that doesn’t mean you have to leave palm cooling gains on the table!

While we recommend freezing your Cool-not-Cold™ packs in the freezer, you can use your Narwhals for palm cooling when you're on the road with a few tweaks.
  1. Cover your Cool-not-Cold packs with ice. You can use a hotel ice bucket or place them in the ice machine in your team’s locker room.
  2. Give them at least 2 hours to freeze solid.
  3. Place the packs in the Narwhals and fill them with 50°F (10°C) water.
  4. If your tap water is not cold enough, add ice to your base. As a general rule, for every 6°F above 50°F (3°C above 10°C), add one ice cube. For example, if your tap water is 60°F, add two ice cubes.
The reason you need to adjust the fill temperature when you freeze your packs with ice versus the freezer is that the packs are only getting to 32°F (0°C). When you freeze them in a freezer, they reach 0°F (-18°C).

The water temperature adjustment accounts for this difference and ensures the handles of the Narwhals will maintain the correct temperature for palm cooling.
