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.

 
2. CONVENIENT AND EASY TO WEAR
Once the cooling vest has been adjusted for size, it is easy to put on every time with the zipper-pull front. The clean design (with no logos or visible pack pockets!) is available in several sizes. Wear the vest over clothing or discreetly underneath.

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

4. COOL58® COOLING PACKS
Cool58® cooling packs freeze solid at a moderate and comfortable temperature of 58° Fahrenheit, so they can be activated in a freezer, refrigerator, or even a bucket of ice water. (Please note: cooling times are estimates and will vary depending on climate, body metabolism and activity.) The vest includes four (4) Cool58® cooling pack strips. See "6. VARIABLE WEIGHT" below for more information on pack dimensions and weight.
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.


See the size chart for more information.

6. VARIABLE WEIGHT
We offer three (3) sizes of Cool58® Packs so you can determine your ideal total vest weight:
  • 5" x 12.5" pack strips with 400g of cooling material; each pack weighs 0.88 lbs. for a total vest weight of just 4.0 lbs. (Available for all sizes)
  • 6" x 13" pack strips with 500g of cooling material; each pack weighs 1.1 lbs. for a total vest weight of just 5.5 lbs. (Not available for size S/M)
  • 6.5" x 16" pack strips with 800g of cooling material; each pack weighs 1.76 lbs. for a total vest weight of just 7.5 lbs. (Not available for sizes S/M and M/L)
If you'd like to add a set of Kool Max® Pack Strips, we offer two (2) sizes to keep the vest weight in proportion to the wearer's size:
  • Sizes S/M and M/L include four (4) 4.5" x 12" Kool Max® Pack Strips for a total vest weight of 4.0 lbs.
  • Sizes L/XL through 2XL/3XL include four (4) 6" x 15" Kool Max® Pack Strips for a total vest weight of 6.0 lbs.

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 the 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: 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: 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.

"Defiantly worth it"

Brad Huddleston on 8/5/2016 9:45:43 AM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: Bought the Industrial Cooling Kit for traveling to work in Mexico, the product worked perfectly lasted about 3 to 4 hours in a plant that was 100 degrees or above the neck wrap only lasted for a little more than an hour but only took about 30 minutes to refreeze in the cooler that i bought from polar products it was well worth the money

"MS Sufferer"

Andrew McKenzie on 7/25/2013 6:12:22 PM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Full Star Full Star

Details: The cool packs do what they say and can be reactivated quickly. They are rather heavy and I find the ones in the chest make movement awkward. That may be something to do with my large belly :-) Be nice if the pack could be lighter or be individual packs rather than the quad size so you can distribute weight as you like. Having MS heat drains me but I did a lot of research and found this to be best price and best product as I had to pay out of my own pocket. I would recommend!

Location: Pennsylvania (hot and humid)

"FINALLY!!"

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: This is the best cooling system I have purchased yet!! I work in a hot warehouse and at each break I change the packs and it keeps me cool. I do host MS so I like to beat it at it's crummy game and stay cool! I also have an extra set of four packs that I keep in the thermal cooler with some ice packs and it seems to work for me! I really would recommend this cooling vest and thermal case. It seems as it lasts a little more then 2 hours at a time....From a Happy Camper!!

"Great Investment"

Valerie Benko on 5/28/2013 5:58:19 PM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Full Star

Details: Being active with MS is hard when some part of me goes numb every time I step into the heat. I noticed this problem working out indoors as well. After doing extensive research I chose the Cool 58 Phase Change vest as my first vest. I was a little concerned that the smallest size came in M/L because I'm only 5 feet tall and was afraid it would be too long. It wasn't! Working out with this vest has literally kept my core cool and has prevented MS flares. For regular workouts this is a great vest. ... More details

"Cooling Vest"

Wilbur Williams on 7/20/2012 11:20:27 AM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: I work in a very hot environment and I wore the vest a couple times when it was very hot and humid, the vest works well but I'm a welder and I wore it under my leathers, it did not last me four hours it only lasts for about 2 and a half, but that's in extreme heat conditions. I would tell other people to buy one.

"Chilling in the Desert"

Mary Schaal on 7/15/2012 3:09:21 PM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: I live in the sunniest city in the world, in the arid western part of the Sonoran Desert. Summers are brutal, especially for people with MS. This vest has given me freedom to go outdoors more. It is light enough to be comfortable, and able to be reactivated without a freezer (great for getting across the parking lot after work, shopping, walking, and going to the dog park). Would likely be good for motorcycle and bicycle riders too.

"Cool 58 Review"

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Full Star

Details: I am very pleased with my new cooling vest. It is very easy to adjust the size and it does not get too cold, stays just the right temp. I haven't used it long enough to see how long the phase change packs last (it hasn't gotten real hot here yet). I use a belt with it to keep the coolness against my waist too (being a female user). I only wear it on the outside of clothes. The only thing I would change would be the weight. With MS, the weight does not help with my fatigue, but if I am sitting mo... More details

"Comfortable During Drag Races"

Gary on 5/5/2010 10:26:31 AM

Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star Empty Star

Details: We purchased 2 of the Polar Phase Change vest systems. I race drag race NHRA Sportsman Pro class. The cooling vest worked brilliantly. I was comfortably in my car ready to race as others were waiting to the last moment to get in their cars due to the heat. My friend who has a Polar vest also uses all the packs, I use the ones just in the front. Both methods work great.
