We went to the Texas Nursery and Landscape Expo over a week ago. I love RealXgear cooling towels and was surprised to see they now have a fogger to keep you cool. I was very impressed with the fine mist it delivered and had to have one. I had just told my husband (Yes I am married for those who know me Smiling ) I couldn't leave with out one.

I spoke to Chris about doing a group buy/co-op. He said if I would order 12 foggers we could have them for 42.50 each and he would throw in a cooling towel for each fogger. That is a great deal. I paid 50 for my fogger. Which is a 99.95 dollar item. Here is the fogger http://realxgear.com/product/real-x-gear-fogger-cooling-syst...

I ask about cooling towels and he said if we ordered a case of 100 he would let us have them for 3.00 each. They are retailing at 10 dollars each. He said we could mix a case of colors if we wanted pink and blue. Even 10 blue and 90 pink however we want. Of course I didn't talk shipping to me or figure shipping to anyone. I want to find out if there is any interest first.

Here are the towels http://realxgear.com/product/real-x-gear-xtreme-cooling-towe...

It looks like the shipping to me is 1.50 for each fogger and a free towel and around 30 cents each for a cooling towel.

I would be interested in several cooling towels. Would make a great gift. I see on the website that he has sun visors. Do you know if those are effective?

I haven't tried it yet but after reading the reviews I just might. I love my towel alot.
Here are some customer reviews on the visor. http://www.amazon.com/Realxgear-00408-P-RealxGear-Cooling-Vi...

Customer Reviews

5 star--62%
4 star--23%
3 star--11%
2 star--2%
1 star--2%

I am trying to figure out the shipping. 3 maybe 4 foggers and 4-5 cooling towels with them will fit in a large flat rate box for 17.90. I really hate shipping that way but have no access to boxes and don't want to have to run all over trying to find them and ofbcourse the size of the co-op may make it hard to do anything but flat rate. I know I can get 2 cooling towels into a flat rate padded envelope for 6.10 But one fogger is too long to fit into one of those. I wish they still allowed brown paper to be wrapped around boxes Sad

we only need interest for 4 more foggers and I will do a buy thread. I would like one for my David so 3 more. It doesn't look like we will have enough orders for towels. I will ask him if he were to sell us maybe 20 if there is a price break.

I really love mine. I used it at my granddaughters football game. They are really amazing how much they help in this Texas heat.
