Products to help manage the heat - need recommendations

Hi all! I know that managing the heat can be a popular subject and I have done some searching through the search function, but I am not quite finding what I am looking for. I am familiar with the standard strategies of frequenting indoor attractions and shops, drinking lots of water, going back to the room during midday, etc. I am looking for recommendations on products that we can use to help us manage the heat.

Background: DH has a hard time with heat. He is a big guy, born and raised in the upper midwest and loves winter. He even goes camping in winter... We normally don't visit the World during summer for this very reason. My 40th birthday is coming up on June 1st and we are making an exception so that we can celebrate at my favorite place. I am trying to make this as comfortable as possible for him, especially since this is his first trip in 5 years. I have seen a LOT of products out there that promise to help manage the heat (Chilly Towel, Frogtogg Chilly Pad, endless brands of misting fans, etc), but I have no idea what really works and what doesn't.

Anyone have any recommendations for me?
