The Polar Kool Max® Difference!
 
A cooling vest must fit comfortably and snug to the body to be effective. Polar accomplishes this with four separate vest sizes that have adjustment straps at the chest, waist and shoulders.

Additionally, this vest uses separate smaller cooling packs that allow the number and location of these packs to be easily adjusted to fit each individual's need. This also enables each vest to have the appropriate number of packs in proportion to the wearer's size.

Our patent pending spinal cooling design enables you to use fewer packs and still receive effective cooling.

Kool Max® Features:

1. ADJUSTABLE, CUSTOM FIT

This cooling vest is adjustable at the chest, waist and shoulders for a snug, comfortable and customized fit. Straps
with hook and loop closures make it easy! It's important for cooling vests to fit snug to the body for optimal cooling.


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 unisex sizes (see size chart below). Wear over clothing or discreetly underneath.



3. COMFORTABLE 100% COTTON


The cooling vest shell is constructed of durable, machine washable, 100% cotton twill. Available in Khaki or Blue.



4. KOOL MAX® COOLING PACKS


Reusable, water-based Kool Max® cooling packs freeze solid to provide constant cooling for up to 3 - 4 hours. These Kool Max® packs are
4.5" x 6". (If you would prefer a cooling vest with four 6" x 14" cooling pack strips, check out the Kool Max® Industrial Vest)

(Please note: cooling times are estimates and will vary depending on climate, body metabolism and activity. The different vest sizes include eight (8) to twelve (12) packs. See the size chart below 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!

(Please note: the different vest sizes include eight (8) to twelve (12) packs. See the size chart below 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.



8. RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES


The extra set of Kool Max® Cooling Packs is offered at a special discount when purchased with the vest! Keep the extra set in the freezer or a Polar Cooler, ready to use to double your cooling time. The soft-sided Polar Cooler measures 7" x 14" x 12" and will conveniently carry multiple sets of Kool Max® Packs for vests and accessories.

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: 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 extensions for the waist, chest and shoulders. This allows extra fit adjustment for large people, extra long torsos or extra large chests or waists on smaller people.

"Great product."

Dustin Anderson on 8/3/2014 7:18:56 PM


Details: I used this under a costume for a local event and despite it being over 80, it kept me comfortable. My only tip for new users is the packs freeze solid, so make sure to have on a relatively flat surface.

Would you recommend this to a friend?: Absolutely!


"I love this vest!"

Becky Solecki on 6/28/2014 3:18:30 AM


Details: One of the worst things about having MS is feeling like a prisoner to the AC in the summertime. I am very active bike riding, gardening etc and it's all thanks to this vest! Heck I'm even doing housework in it. Love love love it!

"Kool Max Zipper Front Vest"

Maureen Gharrity on 6/19/2014 3:33:26 PM


Details: This vest allows me to be outside working with my animals on a hot day. I wish it came up higher in the back to cover the base of the neck. Would suggest wrinkle proof and stain proof fabric for the outside of the vest.

Location: Minnesota

Would you recommend this to a friend?: yes


"Lifesaver"

Deborah Lamarr on 1/27/2014 8:55:37 PM


Details: I bought this as a gift for my pastor. The polyester robe he wears for church is like an oven to him. He is the best pastor I have ever had in a church and wanted to help him with a useful gift to express my appreciation to him for serving our community.

Location: Texas

Would you recommend this to a friend?: Yes


"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!

"love it"

Geoffrey K Kern on 9/3/2013 1:54:14 AM


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

"MS patient"

Louis Long on 7/21/2013 7:15:38 AM


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!

Location: Dayton, OH

Would you recommend this to a friend?: Oh Hell yes!!!!!


"Best Cooling"

Peggy on 7/15/2013 9:45:53 PM


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
