Arizona-based hiker and inventor Ron Laikind has hiked the globe from the Sahara to the Gobi Desert in Mongolia, Siberia, Turkey, the Himalayas, India, Cashmere, Pakistan, Thailand, Asia, Vietnam, Cambodia, South America, Patagonia, Argentina, Chile, Mexico and, even, Yosemite.

However, Laikind was challenged when on the trail. He wanted to stay hydrated and cool without carrying a tremendous amount of extra weight on his back. He invented the Extreme Mist Personal Cooling System (PCS) to beat the heat and keep cool while exercising (hiking, fishing, camping, cycling, running, etc).
