MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.

DR. COOL WRAP
Wrap your injuries in a choice of three sizes: Small (3"), Medium (4"), or Large (6"). The wrap replaces traditional bags of ice and combines cold therapy with compression to help reduce swelling and speed recovery. Use the Small ice wrap on your wrist, ankle or foot. Use the Medium wrap as an injury wrap on your knee, elbow or ankle. With a Dr. Cool ice wrap, your injury won’t hold you back.
