Mission Enduracool Instant Cooling Bandana, $13
Don't be a hothead. Mission's bandana is an instant cooling device, delivering fast relief to your temples (powerful "pulse points"), delaying fatigue and allowing you to perform at a high level, even in the sweltering heat. To activate the cooling technology, just soak the bandana in water, wring it out and snap it three times. The bandana will be up to 30 degrees cooler than your body temperature. Put it on and you'll feel cool and refreshed in minutes.
Mission Enduracool Instant Cooling Towel, $15
The Enduracool towel uses the same chemical-free instant cooling technology to drop the temperature wherever you wear it. Activated with a soak and a snap, the towel also provides UPF 50 protection to stave off sunburns. Its coolness lasts for up to two hours. Try it on your neck for an invigorating burst of relief that can help you train harder for longer. Bonus: The towel can be tossed in your washing machine for easy cleaning and is reusable.
Mission SPF 50 Sunscreen Spray (5 oz.), $10
Enriched with antioxidants and vitamins, Mission's SPF 50 spray-on sunscreen requires no rubbing in—just spray and play. The sunscreen dries quickly too, so you don't have to worry about looking too slick during your time on the field. Hypoallergenic and water resistant for up to 80 minutes, the sunscreen gives you protection on the brightest summer days.
