Ok, this isn't only my idea, it was developed as a group exercise about 3 years ago, but since I just found this site, I thought I should share it.
Basically it's for people in hot humid climates, such as Singapore, Melbourne etc. You keep the bag in your fridge or freezer (it doesn't go solid
because the "BlueGel" has a freezing point below -20 degrees C).
When you get home from a busy day, after a trip home on cramped public transport, grab you Cold Bag, jump in, and blob out on the couch. nice.-- zero5,
