What makes ours different? Our Skin Cooler fiber is designed to feel and perform like silk (from a silkworm). Through Biomimicry, we took the virtues of this natural fiber and created a synthetic silk. It will keep you cool in hot weather and cooler when it is wet. Put it on and you will instantly feel the cool sensation. Wet it and you will notice a drop in the surface temperature of the skin between 7 and 10 degrees.
A MEDICAL TESTIM0NIAL: We received this letter from a respected Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon:
I am an avid runner and triathlete and I recently discovered your Skin Cooler products, of which I'm a huge fan. I have been wearing them for a few months now and couldn't be happier. I am a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon. Every patient I see is plagued by basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or melanoma. I recommend your products to my active patients on a daily basis. It allows them to continue their active lifestyle while protecting themselves from the sun. I find your product to be far superior to all other cooling and sun protective lines. I truly appreciate your efforts and innovations.Note: No garment should ever be a substitute so we always recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these, and all, products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

90° + Heat & 100% Humidity is no match for this top!
This is my 2nd cooler top from De Soto! I'm buying more today. I love the Amalfi Mosaic print and the fit so much! I am 5'1" and 125lb and bought a medium. Small definitely fits too, I just opt for a little extra room. Ran a 5 mile race in the blazing sun in 90°+ temps and 100% humidity. It worked like a charm! I dumped the luke warm water from the water stops on my back and the shirt did its job and instantly cooled me. It was amazing! Also wearing this regularly for training bike rides. The sun was no match for this top as I rode along The Cape on the east coast. #DeSotoLoverForLife
Keeps me from feeling sticky/sweaty!
I hardly feel like I have a top on! That’s the feeling you have with this top on during warm/hot weather. My skin doesn’t breathe with other triathlon materials.
