Anyone know where I might find some Duracool or comparable in SF, or worst-case on-Playa? Thank you.

Thank you all! Found some decent comparable padding at Home Depot in Daly City.

Will there be a cooler convention this year?

We've heard that before...
Then it swells, blocks, clogs or falls apart, or simply cools poorly at the airflow rate due to excessively large air paths through the media or poor water-to-air surface area.

Post what you got and let us know how it does.

Yep! But only the people who run real A/C got the invite, because they are cooler.
