83 Degrees media reports today on a cool invention – literally! While the weather has been seasonably pleasant in Tampa Bay in recent days, our more usual clime can trend towards hot and sunny with a 50% chance of heat stroke.

McClish experimented a while before coming up with a medical grade polymer that holds its temperature over a long period of time – in the case of the K-9 Koolee, up to 8 hours – just right for a day at the beach!
