It's simple: Arctic Cool is a revolution in wearable cooling technology. All our products are constructed with our HydroFreeze X Technology that begins to work as soon as you start to sweat. You can’t help but feel the difference every time you wear it.

Our HydroFreeze X Instant Cooling Technology utilizes ActiveWick which pulls moisture away from your skin and disperses it throughout the fabric along channels on the surface of the threads. Moisture is moved away from your skin and circulates throughout the fabric while controlling the rate of natural evaporation. This produces a cooling effect that can be felt instantly.

Our products are made from a polyester/spandex blend incorporating 4-Way Stretch capabilities allowing for a free flowing, flexible fabric that moves with your body ensuring you can keep going while staying cool and comfortable.

What would you prefer: a good workout, or one of the best of your life? Being uncomfortable on a hot day, or feeling as cool as a cucumber no matter how hot it gets? Cooling products improve your performance and your comfort level in heat. And Arctic Cool's Instant Cooling Products take this to a new, unparalleled level. Our product’s cooling effect begins as soon as you start to sweat and will keep working as long as you do. What is more, Arctic Cool's unique design allows for full range of motion without weighing you down.

As soon as you start to sweat, the HydroFreeze X Technology will activate. If you desire an even more intense cooling sensation, you may dampen the product before wearing it, but this is not required. Due to the free-flowing fabric design, you won’t feel weighed down or uncomfortable.

The solid fabric used in our Instant Cooling products has been rated as Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) 50+ in independent lab testing for sun protection. That means our cooling fabric blocks 98% of the sun's harmful UV rays.

The exclusive HydroFreeze X Technology in our shirts works best and provides maximum cooling when combined with both airflow and moisture. Although our shirt wasn’t intended to be worn as an undergarment, our testing and customer feedback suggests that our garment begins to start cooling as soon as moisture is detected!

We don’t recommend custom embroidery as the stretch of the HydroFreeze X material would not lend itself well to embroidery. You could have a custom heat press design applied. This is the same application that we apply our logo with. Wherever a design is heat pressed, you will lose the moisture absorption and cooling property in that specific area. You can check with your local screen printer for their ability to apply the heat press design.


Size charts are located on each product description page directly above the color selections. The link can take a moment to load.

Not specifically but our Men’s Pocket Workwear Tees have a more relaxed, loose and longer fit.

Arctic Cool Instant Cooling shirts have a fit that is "athletic". See our fit comparison guides:



Our fabric lets the shirt move and stretch with your body, without clinging or being too tight. The shirts are also fitted enough that they aren't loose or baggy as you move. If you would prefer a more relaxed fit, simply purchase an Instant Cooling shirt that is one size larger than your normal size.


Our products are a snap to clean. Just toss it in the machine on a cold-water cycle for light colors and tumble dry low. Our fabric is wrinkle resistant. Use only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Please avoid use of fabric softeners and fabric softener sheets. They can leave a residue behind that affects the airflow and performance of the fabric.

Not at all. The anti-microbial design fights odors and keeps your shirt fresh and clean.
