Cool Ties

What is a cool tie?  It's a neck band which has water-absorbing polymer crystals inside of it.  When you submerge your cool tie in water, the polymer absorbs the water and swells up to form a soft, comfortable gel.  It acts like an evaporative cooler (also known as a swamp cooler) to help beat the heat on those terribly hot days.  When you don't need it, hang it up and it'll dry out as the polymer returns from a gel state to a crystal state.  They then can be stored and reused again and again!

These are the styles currently available in cool ties - 37 designs total right now.  Designs will change due to fabric availability; as new designs emerge/old designs become unavailable, this site will be updated.

To see them all, use the arrows on either side of the thumbnails to scroll through, then click on any thumbnail you'd like to see a larger image of.  The large image will appear below the thumbnails, and the name and description is available beneath each large photo.  (Note: This page views best in Internet Explorer.  In other browsers, the thumbnails may scroll off the side of the screen.  I'm trying to fix this issue.)

All ties are $5 plus $3.95 shipping within the continental US; please drop me an email with your zip code/country if you're outside the US and want one, so I can calculate shipping costs.  Use the name listed under the large image of the tie you'd like for ordering purposes.

Remember, all colors display differently on different makes of monitors.  I've tried to make these as true to life as possible on my monitor, but they may not show the same way on yours, so I've included the descriptions as a backup.

If you'd like to order one (or more), send a check or money order to Lori Fuller, C/O OCB Trading Post, 657 E. Arrow Hwy #M, Glendora, CA 91740.  If you want to use an alternate payment method, or if you have any questions at all, email me - my email address is .
