"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.

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.
"Great for MS"

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.

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
