1. ADJUSTABLE, CUSTOM FIT
It is important for cooling vests to fit snug to the body for optimal cooling. This cooling vest has adjustable hook and loop straps at the chest, waist and shoulders for a snug, comfortable and customized fit. The poncho is available in one adjustable size that fits most, making it ideal for working environments when the vest is shared with multiple wearers.


2. CONVENIENT AND EASY TO WEAR
This vest is easy to put on overhead. The clean design (with no logos or visible pack pockets!) can be worn over clothing or discreetly underneath. This is a great vest for wearing beneath uniforms or costumes.

3. COMFORTABLE 100% COTTON
The cooling vest shell is constructed of durable and machine washable 100% cotton twill.

4. KOOL MAX® COOLING PACKS
Kool Max® frozen water-based cooling packs require access to a freezer and offer the highest level of cooling energy. These reusable packs deliver comfortable cooling for up to 3-4 hours. It takes more energy to charge these packs in a freezer and in return, the packs offer greater cooling energy than Cool58® cooling packs. (Please note: cooling times are estimates and will vary depending on climate, body metabolism and activity.) The vest includes ten (10) 4.5" x 6" packs. See the size chart for more information.
5. INSULATED PACK POCKETS
Packs fit into insulated pockets inside the cooling vest. The pockets have a comfortable all-cotton fabric to protect the skin and an insulated outer composite fabric to direct the cooling energy toward the body. Temperature may also be adjusted for comfort by increasing or decreasing the number of clothing layers beneath the vest or the number of packs used.

6. VARIABLE WEIGHT
Weight may be adjusted by varying the number of cooling packs used. Need a lighter weight vest? You don't have to use all of the packs! The use of separate, individual packs allows the number of cooling packs used to be customized for each person's preference and size. Some people find that using just three packs down the spine works well, resulting in a vest that weighs just 1.5 lbs.! Others prefer all of the packs except the two on the upper chest. Our design allows many options! 

See the size chart for more information.

7. PATENT PENDING SPINAL COOLING
Pack pockets are placed strategically down the spine for optimal cooling. (Patent pending design!) The location of desired cooling is easily controlled by which pack pockets are used.

Pockets are not visible from the exterior!

How to find your size: 

This vest is adjustable at the shoulders, chest and waist. Therefore, it will fit a large range of sizes. These measurements may help determine the best size for you.
  • To measure the chest and waist circumference: First, wrap a soft measuring tape around dthe fullest part of your chest and under your armpits, making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. This determines your chest measurement. Then wrap a measuring tape around your natural waistline (usually across your belly button), making sure to keep the tape parallel to the ground. See where the larger of the two measurements fall on the size chart. Please note: The vest circumference is independently adjustable at the chest and waist with hook and loop strap closures. if you think you are in between two sizes, order the next size up to accommodate the cooling packs. 
  • To measure the vest length: Hold the tape measure at the highest point of your shoulder. Look straight ahead and pull it down to your natural waist. Mark this measurement on the tape measure with your thumb. Please note: The vest length can be adjusted at the shoulders. When in doubt, order the next size up to accommodate the cooling packs and to prevent the vest from looking too short. 
  • Please note: the weight range is simply a guide; there are many exceptions for different body types. The optional extension strap kit includes extension straps for the waist, chest and shoulders. The extension strap kit adds up to 20" in circumference and 5" in length to any vest size. This allows an extra fit adjustment for large people, extra long torsos or extra large chests or waists on smaller people. Click here to purchase the extension strap kit.

Details: I have MS, so any increase in HEAT is a problem. I put off getting a cooling vest for years. I am so glad I finally got one. I can go out and stay out for dinner out, a dog walk and any event in this Houston heat. Being in the shade helps, but this vest has made my life so much better.

"Polar Vest"

Judy West on 7/23/2012 12:31:16 PM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: My vest arrived when it was over 100 degrees. I like to wear it in the afternoon on the way home from work. Then I have to walk my dogs. If I have a couple of packs that are a little softer, I put them at my spine area. I also like to wear it on my way to karate class in the car. My car air conditioning can't keep up with the heat so it helps keep my core cool. I have MS and I am 65. When I get too hot, I feel out of focus, almost like I am dizzy. This vest helps a lot.

Location: Tri-Cities Washington

Would you recommend this to a friend?: Definitely for other people who NEED to keep cool.

Details: I LOVE my Kool Max Poncho vest. I used it for the first time last night amid our first bought of 90+ degree weather. The hot and humid weather has left me pretty much housebound, but in the interest of keeping the house cool I wanted to grill dinner. I knew there was no way I could venture out without my vest so I tried it. WOW, what a difference it made. After living with a chronic illness for a few years, I've gotten used to having things taken away from me. The vest gave me something back. So... More details

Details: The Kool Max cooling vest is very useful in my job. As Mascot for the Akron Aeros it is very difficult, on those hot summer days, to remain cool. With the vest I can reduce the heat by 15 degrees inside my costume; and as little a difference you may think this is, it actually feels like a major one to me.
