"Great for MS"
Leslie Boedicker on 9/9/2013 4:03:28 PM
Details: I love the product. It helps me keep cool even in 100 degree weather. The only thing I do not like is that the ice packs break. I have had two leak on me.
Note from Polar: Hi Leslie, I'm so sorry for your trouble with broken ice packs! We will send replacements to you right away. If we can be of further assistance please contact us at 1-800-763-8423. Thank you for your business!

Details: This is the best cooling vest I have owned to date, from Polar Products as well as from other companies. I wear it OUTSIDE my shirt and find it is more manageable and cools just as well as other vest. It is also flexible in that if it is not as hot I don't have to insert all of the gel packs, or, if a long period of cooling is needed, I put in half of the packs and keep the other half frozen in the carrier bag I purchased with the vest and trade the packs out hours later for extended relief.

"Vest is effective"
Lester Collins III on 8/30/2013 6:13:08 PM
Details: Though skeptical, I found this vest worked quite well to keep me comfortable for a 2 hour round trip in an non air conditioned light airplane on a hot Texas afternoon. Was not cold but pleasantly cool. Comfortable to wear even with seat belts and shoulder harnesses.Now that I test flew it, I plan to buy another for my wife.

"Kool Max Vest"
Carol Andrews on 8/14/2013 10:16:27 PM
Details: My daughter has POTS and is not able to be outside in the warm weather for longer than 15 mins at a time without feeling sick and her heart rate going over 130 and becoming dehydrated. The first time she used the cooling vest she was able to walk around the zoo with some breaks to sit down for a while and continue for the entire time (4 hours) that we were at the zoo with our family. The ice packs did thaw completely by that time but the vest was still cool for her. Wonderful product and well wo... More details

Details: This vest let me attend my wife's work picnic. We were out for a couple of hours, and there's no way I would have been able to do that without this vest. It even got me through an outdoor concert recently!

Details: I have MS and always suffer in the summer months when it's hot and humid, especially with the humidity. After reading the great reviews, I ordered your Kool Max Zipper Front Vest and couldn't be happier. This is truly the best investment I've made this year! Finally, I'm able to be outside and can work in my flower garden when the thermometer reaches 80-90 degrees! If you do order the vest, be sure to order an extra set of the cooling packs so you can rotate them in the freezer. I highly recomme... More details

"Great for rosacea sufferers"
Virginia Schomp on 6/29/2013 2:02:14 PM
Details: I am a 50-year-old (close enough) woman with rosacea, a skin condition that causes my face to get red and splotchy when I get overheated, and I seem to be able to tolerate the heat less and less every summer. I bought the cooling scarf a couple of years ago and it helped some, but this year it was obvious I needed more. The vest was a big investment but I decided to give it a try based on the return policy (they would refund everything except shipping if I wasn't satisfied). I'm very happy with ... More details

"kool vest keeps seizures down!"
mark moxley on 6/27/2013 11:38:10 AM
Details: Not an ms patient, but a serious stroke survivor with stroke induced epilepsy. Cooling vest helps to reduce the number of seizures in warm/hot times. I wore out my first vest and just recently bought my second. It allows me to get out of the house and actually do some small things around my house or go for short walks with my wife. Visit with neighbors outside in the Summer-many things that would be tough in the heat without the cooling vest. It really makes a difference for me!

"kool max vest"
otto endow on 9/10/2012 12:55:41 PM
Details: We ordered the kool max zipper vest for my wife and she thinks it is great how it keeps her cool. We had a issue with one or two of the kooling packs but an email to polar products with an explanation and they sent out replacements. They are very courteous and stand behind their product.

Details: Hi!! I ordered my vest in July. I was diagnosed with POTS (Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) last June. It's been one year since my diagnosis. I struggle daily to live a normal life. I have severe heat intolerance due to my syndrome due to my autonomic system failure. I wanted to be able to enjoy outdoor activities again and found your product. I went to the beach this month and wore it and was able to enjoy myself. This product is amazing!
