    "I've got MS and used to be confined to the indoors during most of June - Oct. For two years now, this Kool Max® Poncho Vest has allowed me to help coach my son's youth football team in Texas - starting in Aug., when the temps are consistently over 100 degrees! I just wear a hat and put the vest on under a golf shirt (with a t-shirt on between the vest and my skin) and nobody can even tell I've got in on. The only time they know is if they pat me on the back to congratulate a good play in the game. It allows me to be out in the heat for 2 - 3 hour practices and games 4 days / week. I got the extra set of packs and use them if I'm out more than 3 hours, but a single set easily keeps my core cool for 3 hours, and that's long enough for most times. If you take the extra set of packs, just pack them in an ice chest with some blue ice around them and they stay solid all day. EXCELLENT product and highly recommend it for anyone!" with heat sensitivity issues who want to get their life back!"
    - Tom in Texas
    "Incredibly helpful vest. I'm new to MS. Felt very sick from heat; my PT put me in this [Kool Max® Zipper Front] vest. Was amazed at how much better it made me feel, so I've bought one." 
    - Amanda in Southern California
    "Thanks so very much for the assistance. The [Kool Max® Zipper Front] vest is great. I can now function better when at home. Today was a great test as it was 106 degrees in the shade and I felt so much better, less like melted jello. Again, thank you so much."
    - Rayann in Twentynine Palms, California
    "I have MS and am intolerant to heat. This particularly affects my feet as well as the rest of my body. I often felt that if I could keep my feet cool, I could keep my entire body cool. In the past I used ice bags and booties but this solution left me unable to be active or even walk. Then I tried the Polar ankle cooling wraps. They work great! They fit on my ankles so I am able to stay mobile and they not only cool my ankles and feet, they cool my body!"
    - Kim in Akron, Ohio
    "I purchased this product for my wife with MS, to keep her core temperature lower, which this easily does. The snug fit of the Kool Max® Fashion Vest allows her to easily wear it almost anywhere. I'd recommend this for anyone with heat issues."
    -Customer in Arizona
    "I am 39 years old and have Multiple Sclerosis. Eight years ago my condition made it impossible for me to continue my working life. Until recently one of the most difficult symptoms of my MS was intolerance to heat. I don't mean the usual summer heat, but also the winter heating months. I have found that if the temperature is over 70 degrees I become very fatigued, my vision worsens and my speech becomes difficult. I had heard of "active and passive" cooling therapy as a non-drug treatment for these symptoms. I have had my [Cool Flow® Vest] for several months now and honestly don't go a day without using it! The system is so easy to use. Just add water, some ice and turn it on. Instant relief! The amount of cooling can be adjusted easily and with the battery pack I can take it with me anywhere and be in total comfort. To everyone who may suffer from heat intolerance, this is THE product that will help. I wholeheartedly recommend this system from Polar Product, Inc. You have a great product and your customer service representatives are grade A+ ."
    - Avigdor in Hendersonville, North Carolina
    "For years I'd been sensitive to heat. If the temp outside got above 80F, I would have to sit quietly in the shade with quarts of icy drinks, and only for an hour tops, instead of hiking, canoeing, kayaking, BBQing or even just gardening/puttering in the yard. I was recently diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis so my heat issues now make sense. Someone mentioned that there are manufacturers of special "stay cool" items... I was intrigued. This [Kool Max® Zipper Frontvest has really opened opportunities for me to be active and have fun in the summertime. This summer has been extremely hot (many 90F+ days) but I've gone canoeing, kayaking, gardened,archery/range, BBQs etc. with NO heat fatigue yay! I bring a few extra ice packs, as the ones on my back always melt faster than the front ones. Some people are curious when I wear the vest, I tell them it keeps me cool/comfy :O) Make sure you read the sizing info carefully, I did, and ordered the shoulder-extenders as I have a long bod, otherwise it would have been up around my neck!"
    -Kate in Michigan
    "The evaporative cooling hat and neck wrap are fantastic! I went kayaking recently with the temperature at 89 degrees F. Despite my MS, I was comfortable & able to paddle for 2 hours. These wraps enable me to do the things I love without the incapacitating heat sensitivity." 
    -Patricia L. Blake, RN, BSN, MSCN; Administrator at Oak Clinic in Akron, Ohio
    "Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. I have been suffering with the heat for years and these [Kool Max®] products I am sure will help keep my core temp down when I need to be out in the hot and humid weather. You provide a wonderful service."
    -Sue in Kansas City, Missouri 
      "I cannot deal with the heat, it has a major impact on me. The Polar [Kool Max®] cooling vest they sent me allows me now to be at the race track all day watching my baby brother race motocross. Last weekend was 100 degrees, I sat in a chair, zipped the vest around me and got my body temperature down. I did this throughout the day and it was great. I use the neck wrap while waiting on my kids at the bus stop, I couldn't be there otherwise."
    - Shandalier in East Bernstadt, Kentucky
      "I purchased the Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest because I have MS and have become increasingly intolerant to the heat. Mt MD recommended a cooling vest. I was worried as the design and look. But after one day of wearing it to an outdoor event and I was thrilled."
    - Deborah in Elgin, Illinois
      "I have MS and can't take hot weather. Now that I have the Kool Max® vest I can be out. I did not think this would do the trick. But it keeps my body cool enough to go outside on hot days. Glad I purchased one. Everyone who is heat-sensitive should have one."
    - Ron in Ohio
      "As an individual with MS heat drains me quickly. I recently purchased a second Kool Max® vest since I really like the first one. Bring a cooler and swap out the packs when low. Super easy. Was able to stay cool @ a 100 degree party for multiple hours. Thank you for allowing me to play with my daughter at the park, take a boat ride, and other do things that I couldn't do a few years ago."
    - Jeffrey in Illinois
      "I have the CoolFit® Kit and absolutely love it! As a person with MS who is very heat sensitive it's a workout essential. I use it year round, 2-3 times a week. The Kool Max Deluxe Cooling Neck Tie and Kool Max Secrets vest are my favorite, though I wear the vest outside my clothes as it's really cold when I first put it on. The wrist and ankle wraps are good on particularly hot days, so I tend to use them more in the summer for that extra cooling power. They are also pretty subtle at the gym, every now and then someone asks me why I'm wearing a back brace and I explain it's ice and talk a little bit about MS and heat. No one asks about the neck wrap, and people assume the wrist and ankle ones are weights. Overall a fantastic product that helps me stay as active as I can be!
    - Kristin in Greenville, North Carolina
      "Thank you so much for providing the Kool Max® cooling vest and accessories. How I wish I would've done this long ago! I am extremely heat sensitive and this will be a big help. I look forward to next spring, so that I can return (somewhat) to gardening. For that matter, I will even use the cooling equipment this winter, as so many indoor establishments are way overheated."
    -Lisa in Dayton, Ohio
      "The Kool Max® Secrets Vest makes gardening and walking much more enjoyable. This is especially helpful if you have any problem with heat tolerance health issues."
    Alyce in North Carolina
      "I am a businessman with both MS and intolerance to heat situations. My occupation often presents me the opportunity to play a round of golf with clients, which I love except for the fact that the heat considerably worsens my symptoms. I had searched previously for a cooling option that would allow me to play golf without overheating and one that would be somewhat unobtrusive (I frankly get tired of the questions and explanations!). I even asked my doctor without satisfaction and ultimately came to the realization that such a solution did not exist. Then I discovered the Polar Kool Max vest. This vest is lightweight and fits comfortably under my clothing. No one knows I am wearing it but me... and what's even more amazing is that it works! This vest totally minimizes the debilitating effect heat has on me. I make a habit of not recommending products - not even a movie; however I have never felt so positive about a product. The Polar [Kool Max®] vest has made a huge difference for me when entertaining clients and changed my life."
    - Arnold in Chicago, Illinois
      "The Cool58® packs do what they say and can be reactivated quickly. Having MS, the 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." 
    - Andrew in Pennsylvania 
      "I LOVE that the Kool Max® Wrist Wraps come in a light color, as well as a dark color, so they are less noticeable. They have wrap around soft material for comfort and velcro closure for ease in handling with numb/tingly hands. Overall, I believe these to be a wonderful asset to us MSer's who need the help with heat. They are both discreet and effective!"
    - Tammy in Canton, Illinois
      "This [MS Awareness Fashion] scarf is great and helps keep me cool. I live in Missouri where the weather gets unbearable in the summer and at times work in a hot warehouse. I am heat intolerant due to multiple sclerosis and the scarf has really helped me on the hot days. I love it!"
    - Cat in Missouri
       "Details: I have MS and heat is a huge issue for me. I bought the vest for use when working out and when running fire calls. I have been wearing the vest at the gym now for almost 2 weeks and it works wonderful. The cool packs last up to almost three hours so far in my experience and are still cold when I put them back in the freezer. The vest is very comfortable and blend very well with my attire. Before the vest my feet would become numb (from the MS) when working out. With the vest they do not get numb near as much. This vest is worth every penny I paid for it." 
    -K.T. 
       "We actually bought 6 extra packs [KM456] so my husband (who has MS) would have 2 full sets of Kool Packs for his cooling vest, one set for the afternoon and one set for during the night."
    -Beth L. in Florida 
     
    The additional heat and humidity this spring and summer really affected my MS. The program offered by the MSAA, offered me the opportunity to obtain and utilize a cooling vest. The results were not only remarkable, but also allowed me to participate in many more activities and to socialize outside my home with the public and friends!

       Symptom Management
      "I must tell you that your [Cool Flow® Vest] is the 5th type I have worn, my Multiple Sclerosis disabled my ability to be gainfully employed a little over 20 years... I must confess this suit has made a huge difference in the quality of life... for me this improves all the symptoms you learn to endure with Multiple Sclerosis... I encourage each of you try it for yourself... it will give you back a life quality that will surprise all of you... thanks Polar, you put the 'yes baby!' in my summer."
    - Maria in Kansas City, Missouri
      "I love that freaking vest!!! I live in Southern California and I wear it everywhere. I have MS and when I get overheated I can't see. This Kool Max® vest really helps!! Thank you so much!"
    - Carol in Burbank, California
      "I have a problem with heat due to having MS lesions on the part of my brain that regulates temperature. No matter where I go, at some point I start getting so hot that I am miserable. No one else is hot, just me. I purchased a Polar Kool Max vest and it has turned my life around. Now, I go anywhere I want, knowing if I get hot, I can just put on my [Kool Max® Zipper Front] vest and my body will cool down and be comfortable again. When ordering, you don't have to be overly concerned about the size. There are many areas of velcro to make it fit just right. I used to dread summer, now that I have a Polar Kool Max, I know that I have relief at my fingertips!"
    - Tammy L. in Missouri
      "I just had to write and let you know about how my Polar Kool Max® Cooling Vest has changed my life. I was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and my chief complains were fatigue and cognition. Over the years I tried every medication... to no avail. You would think a grown person would recognize that they are hot, but obviously I didn't. I was unaware of what a half point increase in body temperature did to bring on my MS symptoms. Simple things like blow drying my hair, washing a few dishes, or ironing clothes would make me miserable and almost daily ruin my plans. Then I decided to invest in a Kool Max® Vest... and my life is forever changed! Even my doctors didn't pick up on the fact that I was getting too hot, yet they are thrilled I discovered the solution on my own. Thank you again for making such a wonderful product available at an affordable price."
    - P.Y. in Houston, Texas
      "I love my CoolFit® Kit! I live in Florida and love to be outside. However, since being diagnosed with MS I get super tired and slow moving when it is really hot out. Not wanting MS to stop me from being me and enjoying all that Florida has to offer I ordered the CoolFit Kit! I have been able to continue to enjoy many outdoor activities thanks to my Polar Products!!! It keeps me cool while all my friends are sweating up a storm! The material seems strong and well put together, I just hope it can keep up with me... time will tell!! The torso "vest" and ankle wraps are my favorite to use to give me immediate cooling relief that lasts for hours. Thank you so much for designing these products and I will highly recommend you to all my friends!"
    - Colleen in Gainesville, Florida
      "I just wanted to call and thank you for my cooling vest system I received earlier this week. I love it. I can go outside without sweating or fainting now."
    - Carolyn in Redding, Pennsylvania
      "She said she loved the Kool Max® vest this summer but didn't realize how much it really helped until she started using it when she was hit with spasms and it helped a lot. I love it.
    - Marsha in Perris, California
      "My Kool Max® Poncho 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."
    - Judy in Washington
      "Since getting my [Kool Max® Fashion] vest I have again been able to get out and walk for exercise. I have also been able to ride the exercise bike in my home without the usual backlash of flaring symptoms due to MS. In the past month I have lost 12 pounds with very little change to eating habits just the ability to exercise again. So much has this worked for me that I have taken up the side seams on my fitted vest this week and am planning to order another size soon. Thanks so much!"
    - Lynda in Charlotte, North Carolina
      "I appreciate these Kool Max® cooling pieces. I pass out so easily, I don't have to get very warm at all. Now maybe I can have a life. Thank you again so much."

      "After reading the reviews and searching the website I decided to go with for Polar Products. I got the fashion cooling vest kit. it helps to keep me cool and able to do my daily chores without this vest I would not make it I recommend it to anyone who is having overheating issues Thank you Polar Products"
    - Sabrina in Arizona
      "The cooling vest I ordered is one of the best investments I have made. Living with Multiple Sclerosis is a challenge in itself. Anything to ease the symptoms is much appreciated. I wear the vest often and it truly makes a difference."

Recently we visited the zoo and spent several hours there. By lunch, everyone else was wilting from the heat but my cooling seat kept me cool and feeling good. Great product!"
    - Cheryl in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania
      "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 Kool Max® vest has made my life so much better."

      "Fantastic vest for those with MS. I received this [Kool Max® Zipper Front] vest end of June and it has been a true godsend. We have had 19 days above 90 degrees here in Green Bay with high humidity. I have been able to spend time outside most of those days working on projects where before I would be inside on day above 85 degrees. I love being outside and now I can enjoy my summers again and not locked up inside. I wear it all the time now and my energy has improved by over 50%. Thank you Polar and your help to those with MS."
    - Scott in Green Bay, Wisconsin
      "Both the cars have A/C but my wife still wears the Kool Max® vest as it gives her a lot of relief. When she goes outside at work she wears the vest and that is 5 days a week. Thank you for your help and whatever help you can do is greatly appreciated. She loves her vest because it makes her life a little bit easier."

    "I enjoy this [fashion scarf]. I was recently diagnosed with MS; heat is a trigger and I live in a very humid place so sometimes I do nothing and become very hot. The scarf is nice when you just need a quick cool down or for when I'm doing outdoor activities that are not active, such eating in an outdoor restaurant. Plus I enjoy how it really doesn't look or feel like an icepack.

      "I recently got diagnosed with MS and I am a very active person who lives in a very warm tropical environment. I love to cycle but the MS was making hard, until I got this [Kool Max® Neck & Upper Spine] wrap. It does an amazing at cooling me down and the symptoms that I experienced went down by half. Combined with riding early morning, I don't feel anything and I ride about 30 miles. I'm so happy with the product."

      "Wow! What a difference the Kool Max® Zipper Vest and extra ice packs have made in my life! Living in Texas and the hot, hot weather we have before getting the cooling vest, my life was staying at home and going straight to another place with air conditioning. The vest now allows me to venture to more places in the summer months. My most recent adventure was my friends daughters wedding. The wedding was at the beach, where I never dreamed I could go ever again! Another adventure was going to a concert outside. I had given up on ever doing this again but thanks to the cooling vest, I feel like I have gotten some of my life back! So many things have come to mind that I can do now gardening, craft shows, church events, family barbecues. The cooling vest has bought me a new lease on life with MS! Words can never express enough thanks. Thanks again for the gift that you have given to me! It has brought me a new brightness on life. Thank you!"
    - Nancy in Texas
      "I finally gave in this year and bought a cooling vest. I have MS, yet I procrastinated for years because I didn't want to look weird, but it really looks nice, like part of my outfit. (I got the Kool Max® Fashion Vest in black so it would go with many of my clothes.) In terms of function, it does a GREAT job. It doesn't make me cold, it just allows me to be comfortably cool. My only concern was its weight. The jacket is lightweight; however, with five ice packs, it becomes heavier. I have chronic neck pain, and the weight of the loaded jacket pulls my shoulders down, putting weight on my neck. Lately, I have been using just three packs down my back, and not filling the front side pockets, and that helps. I don't really notice any change in the cooling effect from this change, a good thing. Now I'm more included and I recently went to the beach with my family for the first time in years. Many beaches loan beach wheelchairs for free, and the lifeguards pushed it! Most importantly, I was COOL! I loved helping my granddaughters as they built sandcastles. I'm so glad I bought this cooling vest!"

    - Kristi in Geogria
      "I got the Cool58® Secrets Vest because most of the other cooling vests were more like traditional vests - they went over your shoulders and chest. Personally, I am a large-chested lady, so finding a vest that would have a snug fit was challenging. The Cool58 Secrets Vest is great in that regard. It fits comfortably on my abdomen, above my belly button and below my bra. It's easy to sit while wearing it, which makes it ideal for bike riding and use at the gym. Since I've ended up using the freezer anyway, I kinda wish I'd gone with the Kool Max® Secrets Vest. At the end of the day, it's great to be able to walk around in the heat without MS kicking my butt."

      "Both the cars have A/C but my wife still wears the Kool Max® vest as it gives her a lot of relief. When she goes outside at work she wears the vest and that is 5 days a week. Thank you for your help and whatever help you can do is greatly appreciated. She loves her vest because it makes her life a little bit easier."

       Exercise
      "Since getting my [Kool Max® Fashion Vest] I have again been able to get out and walk for exercise. I have also been able to ride the exercise bike in my home without the usual backlash of flaring symptoms due to MS. In the past month I have lost 12 pounds with very little change to eating habits just the ability to exercise again. So much has this worked for me that I have taken up the side seams on my fitted vest this week and am planning to order another size soon. Thanks so much!"
    - Lynda in Charlotte, North Carolina
      "I have the CoolFit® Kit and absolutely love it! As a person with MS who is very heat sensitive it's a workout essential. I use it year round, 2-3 times a week. The Kool Max® Deluxe Cooling Neck Tie and Kool Max® Secrets vest are my favorite, though I wear the vest outside my clothes as it's really cold when I first put it on. The wrist and ankle wraps are good on particularly hot days, so I tend to use them more in the summer for that extra cooling power. They are also pretty subtle at the gym, every now and then someone asks me why I'm wearing a back brace and I explain it's ice and talk a little bit about MS and heat. No one asks about the neck wrap, and people assume the wrist and ankle ones are weights. Overall a fantastic product that helps me stay as active as I can be!"
    - Kristin in Greenville, North Carolina
      "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 Cool58® 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. For those looking to do power yoga or workouts that require you to lay on the floor, this is not the vest for you. If you're just looking to cool off doing minor yard work or going for a walk it is perfect. Great investment." 
    -Valerie in Pennsylvania 
      "I do about 60 - 90 minutes of aerobic exercise a day. With the heat of summer my balance and walking at the end of exercising has been negatively impacted. Since I have purchased and used the [Kool Max® Zipper Vest] vest during my exercising my balance and gait have greatly improved. This has been wonderful as I do not want my MS to prohibit me from the activities I have done in the past."

       Gardening
      "Wow! What a difference the Kool Max® Zipper Vest and extra ice packs have made in my life! Living in Texas and the hot, hot weather we have before getting the cooling vest, my life was staying at home and going straight to another place with air conditioning. The vest now allows me to venture to more places in the summer months. My most recent adventure was my friends daughters wedding. The wedding was at the beach, where I never dreamed I could go ever again! Another adventure was going to a concert outside. I had given up on ever doing this again but thanks to the cooling vest, I feel like I have gotten some of my life back! So many things have come to mind that I can do now gardening, craft shows, church events, family barbecues. The cooling vest has bought me a new lease on life with MS! Words can never express enough thanks. Thanks again for the gift that you have given to me! It has brought me a new brightness on life. Thank you!"
    - Nancy in Texas
      "For years I'd been sensitive to heat. If the temp outside got above 80F, I would have to sit quietly in the shade with quarts of icy drinks, and only for an hour tops, instead of hiking, canoeing, kayaking, BBQing or even just gardening/puttering in the yard. I was recently diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis so my heat issues now make sense. Someone mentioned that there are manufacturers of special "stay cool" items... I was intrigued. This [Kool Max® Zipper Frontvest has really opened opportunities for me to be active and have fun in the summertime. This summer has been extremely hot (many 90F+ days) but I've gone canoeing, kayaking, gardened,archery/range, BBQs etc. with NO heat fatigue yay! I bring a few extra ice packs, as the ones on my back always melt faster than the front ones. Some people are curious when I wear the vest, I tell them it keeps me cool/comfy :O) Make sure you read the sizing info carefully, I did, and ordered the shoulder-extenders as I have a long bod, otherwise it would have been up around my neck!"
    - Kate in Michigan
      "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! (KMVZ)

      "Thank you so much for providing the cooling vest and accessories. How I wish I would've done this long ago! I am extremely heat sensitive and this will be a big help. I look forward to next spring, so that I can return (somewhat) to gardening. For that matter, I will even use the cooling equipment this winter, as so many indoor establishments are way overheated."
    - Lisa in Dayton, Ohio
      "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 recommend this zippered front vest to anyone who has MS. I couldn't be happier with your product."
    - Peggy in Maine
      "My Kool Max® vest has saved my life every summer since I was diagnosed with MS in 2010. It has done a really good job of helping to keep me cool. I love it. It has helped me keep doing the things that I used to. I used to farm and I was outside all of the time in the heat. I do a lot of outside work now, like gardening. This vest helps immensely."

       Golf
      "I am a businessman with both MS and intolerance to heat situations. My occupation often presents me the opportunity to play a round of golf with clients, which I love except for the fact that the heat considerably worsens my symptoms. I had searched previously for a cooling option that would allow me to play golf without overheating and one that would be somewhat unobtrusive (I frankly get tired of the questions and explanations!). I even asked my doctor without satisfaction and ultimately came to the realization that such a solution did not exist. Then I discovered the Polar Kool Max® vest. This vest is lightweight and fits comfortably under my clothing. No one knows I am wearing it but me... and what's even more amazing is that it works! This vest totally minimizes the debilitating effect heat has on me. I make a habit of not recommending products - not even a movie; however I have never felt so positive about a product. The Polar vest has made a huge difference for me when entertaining clients and changed my life."

       Outdoor Activities
      "I've got MS and used to be confined to the indoors during most of June - Oct. For two years now, this Kool Max® Poncho Vest has allowed me to help coach my son's youth football team in Texas - starting in Aug., when the temps are consistently over 100 degrees! I just wear a hat and put the vest on under a golf shirt (with a t-shirt on between the vest and my skin) and nobody can even tell I've got in on. The only time they know is if they pat me on the back to congratulate a good play in the game. It allows me to be out in the heat for 2 - 3 hour practices and games 4 days / week. I got the extra set of packs and use them if I'm out more than 3 hours, but a single set easily keeps my core cool for 3 hours, and that's long enough for most times. If you take the extra set of packs, just pack them in an ice chest with some blue ice around them and they stay solid all day. EXCELLENT product and highly recommend it for anyone with heat sensitivity issues who want to get their life back!"

Finally, THIS IS IT!!! This one works! You don't have to be soaking wet or carry a humongous fan around your neck! NO bells OR whistles. This great fitting (doesn't restrict arm movement), low profile, lightweight, non-offensive looking, one size really does fit all cooling vest is the answer. I love mine!

Not wanting MS to stop me from being me and enjoying all that Florida has to offer I ordered the CoolFit® Kit! I have been able to continue to enjoy many outdoor activities thanks to my Polar Products!!! It keeps me cool while all my friends are sweating up a storm! The material seems strong and well put together, I just hope it can keep up with me....time will tell!! The torso "vest" and ankle wraps are my favorite to use to give me immediate cooling relief that lasts for hours. Thank you so much for designing these products and I will highly recommend you to all my friends!"

Plus I enjoy how it really doesn't look or feel like an icepack."

Just the short time I have used your secrets kit I love it. It cools my body temperature and it feels great that I can do things in the heat and not have to worry about my MS acting up. I totally recommend it to anybody that has MS."

      "I love my CoolFit® Kit! I live in Florida and love to be outside. However, since being diagnosed with MS I get super tired and slow moving when it is really hot out. Not wanting MS to stop me from being me and enjoying all that Florida has to offer I ordered the CoolFit® Kit! I have been able to continue to enjoy many outdoor activities thanks to my Polar Products!!! It keeps me cool while all my friends are sweating up a storm! The material seems strong and well put together, I just hope it can keep up with me....time will tell!! The torso "vest" and ankle wraps are my favorite to use to give me immediate cooling relief that lasts for hours. Thank you so much for designing these products and I will highly recommend you to all my friends!"
    - Colleen in Gainesville, Florida
      "Thank you, thank you, thank you so much. I have been suffering with the heat for years and these products I am sure will help keep my core temp down when I need to be out in the hot and humid weather. You provide a wonderful service."
    - Sue in Kansas City, Missouri
      "Got the wrist wraps and neck wrap too! Thank you sooo much! The prompt delivery was a plus. This is an answered prayer (thank you, Lord). I can now go out in the hot Texas summer with my family, something I haven't done in a long time."
    - Scott in Clarksville, Texas
      "I have MS and it is horrible in New Orleans in the summer. I bought this [Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest Kit] to help me be cooler when I am outdoors, I also bought the hat and the insert. I think it helped a lot because I was able to be outdoors and not suffer."
    - Lori in New Orleans, Louisiana
      "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."
    - Mary Ann in Texas 
      "Fantastic vest for those with MS. I received this [Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest] vest end of June and it has been a true godsend. We have had 19 days above 90 degrees here in Green Bay with high humidity. I have been able to spend time outside most of those days working on projects where before I would be inside on day above 85 degrees. I love being outside and now I can enjoy my summers again and not locked up inside. I wear it all the time now and my energy has improved by over 50%. Thank you Polar and your help to those with MS."
    - Scott in Green Bay, Wisconsin
      "I have Multiple Sclerosis and used my vest for the first time this past week when the temperature was 107 degrees. The vest saved the day. It made a huge difference and allowed me to stay outside hours longer than I would have without it." (Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest Kit)
    - Debbie in Tennessee
      "I live in the HOT high desert of CA, for at least 3 years I put off getting a cooling vest because I didn't want to look like a freeway worker. Anyone with MS can relate that each summer month gets more difficult to manage (unless you stay in doors 24/7). So I finally broke down and decided to get it, Boy am I glad! I was pleasantly surprised how discreet the cooling inserts were and how much better I felt afterward. I got the Khaki color it matched with quite a few things in my closet. Trust me - it won't cramp your style, ladies, I plan to get the black too. Anyone looking at the [Kool Max® Fashion] cooling vest, I say... Get It!!! Don't put it off. You'll love it."
    - Terri in California
      "I enjoy this [Kool Max® Fashion Scarf]. I was recently diagnosed with MS; heat is a trigger and I live in a very humid place so sometimes I do nothing and become very hot. The scarf is nice when you just need a quick cool down or for when I'm doing outdoor activities that are not active, such eating in an outdoor restaurant. Plus I enjoy how it really doesn't look or feel like an icepack."
    - Yajaira in Key West, Florida

      "I recently got diagnosed with MS and I am a very active person who lives in a very warm tropical environment. I love to cycle but the MS was making hard, until I got this [Kool Max® Neck & Upper Spine] wrap. It does an amazing at cooling me down and the symptoms that I experienced went down by half. Combined with riding early morning, I don't feel anything and I ride about 30 miles. I'm so happy with the product"
    -Yajaira in Key West, Florida
      "I bought one of these [Kool Max® Neck and Head] wrap a few years ago and loved it and now bought another. I got one for my sister who has MS and struggles with heat here in Florida. It cools even after the ice melts."

       No Air Conditioning
      "I have MS and was attending my son's appearance in a musical. The venue had no air conditioning and the temperature was 97. In Chicago with humidity, that feels like 105. I was able to sit through the 2 hour production with the help of this product [Kool Max® Neck and Upper Spine Wrap] and fans."
    - Jane in Illinois
      "Thank you so very much. I have been miserable all this past summer, even in my house, because we only have a window unit for cooling and it doesn't cool it good enough. This cooling system will make my life so much easier to live. Thank you greatly."
    - Laura in Bowie, Texas

       Summer
      "I've had MS since 2002 and I've always said I would get a cooling vest but never did. I decided to get one this year and when I wore my [Kool Max® Fashion] vest during this little heat wave we have got here in New York these past two weeks I just started beating myself up for waiting so long. This was the best decision I have made to finally get my Kool Max® vest. It is absolutely amazing to help with the heat."
    - Kalinda in New York
      "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)
    - Becky in Chicago, Illinois
      "For years I'd been sensitive to heat. If the temp outside got above 80F, I would have to sit quietly in the shade with quarts of icy drinks, and only for an hour tops, instead of hiking, canoeing, kayaking, BBQing or even just gardening/puttering in the yard. I was recently diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis so my heat issues now make sense. Someone mentioned that there are manufacturers of special "stay cool" items... I was intrigued. This [Kool Max® Zipper Frontvest has really opened opportunities for me to be active and have fun in the summertime. This summer has been extremely hot (many 90F+ days) but I've gone canoeing, kayaking, gardened,archery/range, BBQs etc. with NO heat fatigue yay! I bring a few extra ice packs, as the ones on my back always melt faster than the front ones. Some people are curious when I wear the vest, I tell them it keeps me cool/comfy :O) Make sure you read the sizing info carefully, I did, and ordered the shoulder-extenders as I have a long bod, otherwise it would have been up around my neck!"
    - Kate in Michigan
      "I cannot deal with the heat, it has a major impact on me. The Polar cooling vest they sent me allows me now to be at the race track all day watching my baby brother race motocross. Last weekend was 100 degrees, I sat in a chair, zipped the vest around me and got my body temperature down. I did this throughout the day and it was great. I use the neck wrap while waiting on my kids at the bus stop, I couldn't be there otherwise."
    - Shandalier in East Bernstadt, Kentucky
      "She said she loved the vest this summer but didn't realize how much it really helped until she started using it when she was hit with spasms and it helped a lot. I love it."

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 recommend this zippered front vest to anyone who has MS. I couldn't be happier with your product."
    - Peggy in Maine
      "My Kool Max® vest has saved my life every summer since I was diagnosed with MS in 2010. It has done a really good job of helping to keep me cool. I love it. It has helped me keep doing the things that I used to. I used to farm and I was outside all of the time in the heat. I do a lot of outside work now, like gardening. This vest helps immensely."

       Kool Max Cooling Vest
      "Wow! What a difference the Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest and extra ice packs have made in my life! Living in Texas and the hot, hot weather we have before getting the cooling vest, my life was staying at home and going straight to another place with air conditioning. The vest now allows me to venture to more places in the summer months. My most recent adventure was my friends daughters wedding. The wedding was at the beach, where I never dreamed I could go ever again! Another adventure was going to a concert outside. I had given up on ever doing this again but thanks to the cooling vest, I feel like I have gotten some of my life back! So many things have come to mind that I can do now gardening, craft shows, church events, family barbecues. The cooling vest has bought me a new lease on life with MS! Words can never express enough thanks. Thanks again for the gift that you have given to me! It has brought me a new brightness on life. Thank you!"

      "I have a problem with heat due to having MS lesions on the part of my brain that regulates temperature. No matter where I go, at some point I start getting so hot that I am miserable. No one else is hot, just me. I purchased a Polar Kool® Max vest and it has turned my life around. Now, I go anywhere I want, knowing if I get hot, I can just put on my vest and my body will cool down and be comfortable again. When ordering, you don't have to be overly concerned about the size. There are many areas of velcro to make it fit just right. I used to dread summer, now that I have a Polar Kool Max, I know that I have relief at my fingertips!" (KMVZ)

    - Amanda in Southern California
      "I just had to write and let you know about how my Polar Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest has changed my life. I was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and my chief complains were fatigue and cognition. Over the years I tried every medication... to no avail. You would think a grown person would recognize that they are hot, but obviously I didn't. I was unaware of what a half point increase in body temperature did to bring on my MS symptoms. Simple things like blow drying my hair, washing a few dishes, or ironing clothes would make me miserable and almost daily ruin my plans. Then I decided to invest in a Kool Max® Vest... and my life is forever changed! Even my doctors didn't pick up on the fact that I was getting too hot, yet they are thrilled I discovered the solution on my own. Thank you again for making such a wonderful product available at an affordable price."

    - Rayann in Twentynine Palms, California
      "I purchased this product for my wife with MS, to keep her core temperature lower, which this easily does. The snug fit of the Kool Max® Fashion Vest allows her to easily where it almost anywhere. I'd recommend this for anyone with heat issues."

    - Carolyn in Pittsfield, Maine
      "I've got MS and used to be confined to the indoors during most of June - Oct. For two years now, this Kool Max® Poncho Vest has allowed me to help coach my son's youth football team in Texas - starting in Aug., when the temps are consistently over 100 degrees! I just wear a hat and put the vest on under a golf shirt (with a t-shirt on between the vest and my skin) and nobody can even tell I've got in on. The only time they know is if they pat me on the back to congratulate a good play in the game. It allows me to be out in the heat for 2 - 3 hour practices and games 4 days / week. I got the extra set of packs and use them if I'm out more than 3 hours, but a single set easily keeps my core cool for 3 hours, and that's long enough for most times. If you take the extra set of packs, just pack them in an ice chest with some blue ice around them and they stay solid all day. EXCELLENT product and highly recommend it for anyone with heat sensitivity issues who want to get their life back!"

Finally, THIS IS IT!!! This one works! You don't have to be soaking wet or carry a humongous fan around your neck! NO bells OR whistles. This great fitting (doesn't restrict arm movement), low profile, lightweight, non-offensive looking, one size really does fit all cooling vest is the answer. I love mine!

    - Terri in California
      "I finally gave in this year and bought a cooling vest. I have MS, yet I procrastinated for years because I didn't want to look weird, but it really looks nice, like part of my outfit. (I got the Kool Max® Fashion Vest in black so it would go with many of my clothes.) In terms of function, it does a GREAT job. It doesn't make me cold, it just allows me to be comfortably cool. My only concern was its weight. The jacket is lightweight; however, with five ice packs, it becomes heavier. I have chronic neck pain, and the weight of the loaded jacket pulls my shoulders down, putting weight on my neck. Lately, I have been using just three packs down my back, and not filling the front side pockets, and that helps. I don't really notice any change in the cooling effect from this change, a good thing. Now I'm more included and I recently went to the beach with my family for the first time in years. Many beaches loan beach wheelchairs for free, and the lifeguards pushed it! Most importantly, I was COOL! I loved helping my granddaughters as they built sandcastles. I'm so glad I bought this cooling vest!"
    - Renee in New York
      "Since getting my [Kool Max® Fashion Vest] I have again been able to get out and walk for exercise. I have also been able to ride the exercise bike in my home without the usual backlash of flaring symptoms due to MS. In the past month I have lost 12 pounds with very little change to eating habits just the ability to exercise again. So much has this worked for me that I have taken up the side seams on my fitted vest this week and am planning to order another size soon. Thanks so much!"

      "I am a businessman with both MS and intolerance to heat situations. My occupation often presents me the opportunity to play a round of golf with clients, which I love except for the fact that the heat considerably worsens my symptoms. I had searched previously for a cooling option that would allow me to play golf without overheating and one that would be somewhat unobtrusive (I frankly get tired of the questions and explanations!). I even asked my doctor without satisfaction and ultimately came to the realization that such a solution did not exist. Then I discovered the Polar Kool Max® vest. This vest is lightweight and fits comfortably under my clothing. No one knows I am wearing it but me... and what's even more amazing is that it works! This vest totally minimizes the debilitating effect heat has on me. I make a habit of not recommending products - not even a movie; however I have never felt so positive about a product. The Polar vest has made a huge difference for me when entertaining clients and changed my life."

       Cool58® Cooling Vest
      "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 its 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 Cool58® cooling vest and thermal case [Polar Cooler]. It seems as it lasts a little more then 2 hours at a time.
    - Lynn in New Jersey
      "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 Cool58® 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. For those looking to do power yoga or workouts that require you to lay on the floor, this is not the vest for you. If you're just looking to cool off doing minor yard work or going for a walk it is perfect. Great investment."
    - Valerie in Pennsylvania
      "I got the Cool58® Secrets Vest because most of the other cooling vests were more like traditional vests - they went over your shoulders and chest. Personally, I am a large-chested lady, so finding a vest that would have a snug fit was challenging. The Cool58® Secrets Vest is great in that regard. It fits comfortably on my abdomen, above my belly button and below my bra. It's easy to sit while wearing it, which makes it ideal for bike riding and use at the gym. Since I've ended up using the freezer anyway, I kinda wish I'd gone with the Kool Max® Secrets Vest. At the end of the day, it's great to be able to walk around in the heat without MS kicking my butt."

       Cool Flow Vest System
      "I must tell you that your [Cool Flow® Vest] is the 5th type I have worn, my Multiple Sclerosis disabled my ability to be gainfully employed a little over 20 years... I must confess this suit has made a huge difference in the quality of life... for me this improves all the symptoms you learn to endure with Multiple Sclerosis... I encourage each of you try it for yourself... it will give you back a life quality that will surprise all of you... thanks Polar, you put the 'yes baby!' in my summer."

Until recently one of the most difficult symptoms of my MS was intolerance to heat. I don't mean the usual summer heat, but also the winter heating months. I have found that if the temperature is over 70 degrees I become very fatigued, my vision worsens and my speech becomes difficult. I had heard of "active and passive" cooling therapy as a non-drug treatment for these symptoms. I have had my [Cool Flow® Vest] for several months now and honestly don't go a day without using it! The system is so easy to use. Just add water, some ice and turn it on. Instant relief! The amount of cooling can be adjusted easily and with the battery pack I can take it with me anywhere and be in total comfort. To everyone who may suffer from heat intolerance, this is THE product that will help. I wholeheartedly recommend this system from Polar Product, Inc. You have a great product and your customer service representatives are grade A+ ."

       Cooling Neck Wraps
      "I have MS and the Coastal heat is too much for me in the long afternoons. The [Kool Max® Neck & Upper Spine] wrap is quickly and easily ready to allow me to go to the grocery or to the mailbox."
    - Janice in North Carolina
      "I LOVE that the Kool Max® Wrist Wraps come in a light color, as well as a dark color, so they are less noticeable. They have wrap around soft material for comfort and velcro closure for ease in handling with numb/tingly hands. Overall, I believe these to be a wonderful asset to us MSer's who need the help with heat. They are both discreet and effective!"
    - Tammy in Canton, Illinois
      "This [MS Awareness Fashion] scarf is great and helps keep me cool. I live in Missouri where the weather gets unbearable in the summer and at times work in a hot warehouse. I am heat intolerant due to multiple sclerosis and the scarf has really helped me on the hot days. I love it!"
    - Cat in Missouri
      "I enjoy this [MS Awareness Fashion Scarf]. I was recently diagnosed with MS; heat is a trigger and I live in a very humid place so sometimes I do nothing and become very hot. The scarf is nice when you just need a quick cool down or for when I'm doing outdoor activities that are not active, such eating in an outdoor restaurant. Plus I enjoy how it really doesn't look or feel like an icepack."
    -Yajaira in Key West, Florida
      "I have MS and was attending my son's appearance in a musical. The venue had no air conditioning and the temperature was 97. In Chicago with humidity, that feels like 105. I was able to sit through the 2 hour production with the help of this product [Kool Max® Neck and Upper Spine Wrap] and fans."
    - Jane in Illinois
      "The evaporative cooling hat and neck wrap are fantastic! I went kayaking recently with the temperature at 89 degrees F. Despite my MS, I was comfortable & able to paddle for 2 hours. These wraps enable me to do the things I love without the incapacitating heat sensitivity."
    - Patricia L. Blake, RN, BSN, MSCN; Administrator at Oak Clinic in Akron, Ohio
      "I recently got diagnosed with MS and I am a very active person who lives in a very warm tropical environment. I love to cycle but the MS was making hard, until I got this [Kool Max® Neck and Upper Spine] wrap. It does an amazing at cooling me down and the symptoms that I experienced went down by half. Combined with riding early morning, I don't feel anything and I ride about 30 miles. I'm so happy with the product."
    - Yajaira in Key West, Florida
      "I bought one of these neck wraps a few years ago and loved it and now bought another. I got one for my sister who has MS and struggles with heat here in Florida. It cools even after the ice melts."
    - Denise in Florida
      "Got the wrist wraps and neck wrap too! Thank you sooo much! The prompt delivery was a plus. This is an answered prayer (thank you, Lord). I can now go out in the hot Texas summer with my family, something I haven't done in a long time."
    - Scott in Clarksville, Texas
      "I use the neck wrap while waiting on my kids at the bus stop, I couldn't be there otherwise."
    - Shandalier in East Bernstadt, Kentucky
      "The MS Awareness Fashion Scarf is practical and easy to store. Love the color. On these hot summer days, it's great to cool the head along with the rest of the body."
    - Karen in Illinois
      "Since being diagnosed with MS it is very hard for me to be outdoors during the summer heat. Since purchasing the cooling scarf for MS and receiving other cooling kits for MS I am able to keep cool while being outdoors in the summer. The cooling products have made a difference in my life."

       Cooling Hat
      "I went to the county fair. I haven't gone in so many years and I had a blast. Thank you so much for the cooling hat."
    - Susan in Logan, Utah
      "The evaporative cooling hat and neck wrap are fantastic! I went kayaking recently with the temperature at 89 degrees F. Despite my MS, I was comfortable & able to paddle for 2 hours. These wraps enable me to do the things I love without the incapacitating heat sensitivity."
    - Patricia L. Blake, RN, BSN, MSCN; Administrator at Oak Clinic in Akron, Ohio
       "I ordered this hat [Cool Comfort® Straw Hat] to keep me cool during a family reunion. I have multiple sclerosis and heat affects me greatly. This hat, with the cooler insert kept me comfortable. It's also a cute hat to wear!"

       Cooling Ankle Wraps
      "I have MS and am intolerant to heat. This particularly affects my feet as well as the rest of my body. I often felt that if I could keep my feet cool, I could keep my entire body cool. In the past I used ice bags and booties but this solution left me unable to be active or even walk. Then I tried the Polar ankle cooling wraps. They work great! They fit on my ankles so I am able to stay mobile and they not only cool my ankles and feet, they cool my body!"
    - Kim in Akron, Ohio
      "I have been diagnosed with MS and I depend on the Polar Kool Max® Packs to keep me cool. MS and 100 degree F weather do not mix well. I would recommend any of the Polar Products. I recently purchased the foot/ankle cold pack."

       Cooling Seat
      "I love the seat cushion!!! It makes it so much easier for me to sit against a chair now. Before, I could only lean back into a chair for about 20 minutes and would have to then sit front of a fan to cool my back. Ever since I got the [Kool Max® Cooling Seat Cushion] I can sit comfortably for longer periods of time. Thank you so much! This has been such a life saver for me."
    - Jennifer, head of local MS Support Group in Louisville, Kentucky
      "I have the Kool Max® Cooling Seat Cushion and use it on my scooter. This cooling seat has truly improved my quality of life! I now can do things with the kids I could not before. Recently we visited the zoo and spent several hours there. By lunch, everyone else was wilting from the heat but my cooling seat kept me cool and feeling good. Great product!"

       Cooling Kit
      "I have the CoolFit® Kit and absolutely love it! As a person with MS who is very heat sensitive it's a workout essential. I use it year round, 2-3 times a week. The Kool Max® Deluxe Cooling Neck Tie and Kool Max® Secrets vest are my favorite, though I wear the vest outside my clothes as it's really cold when I first put it on. The wrist and ankle wraps are good on particularly hot days, so I tend to use them more in the summer for that extra cooling power. They are also pretty subtle at the gym, every now and then someone asks me why I'm wearing a back brace and I explain it's ice and talk a little bit about MS and heat. No one asks about the neck wrap, and people assume the wrist and ankle ones are weights. Overall a fantastic product that helps me stay as active as I can be!"
    - Kristin in Greenville, North Carolina
      "I love this "vest". It cools me perfectly. I worked an outdoor concert in 90 degree heat, and my MS didn't flare up at all. (Without the vest, I wouldn't have lasted those 5 hours.) The scarf is very effective at quickly cooling me down. I purchased it in orange & I love the fabric." [Secrets Kit]
    - Danielle in Eagle Mountain, Utah
      "I ordered your secrets kit in hopes that it will give me some relief from the heat. I have MS and yes I have a swamp cooler in the house but I could never enjoy the outdoors or barbecue when it was too hot. I have tried portable fans but it never really helped. Just the short time I have used your secrets kit I love it. It cools my body temperature and it feels great that I can do things in the heat and not have to worry about my MS acting up. I totally recommend it to anybody that has MS."
    - Theresa in Aurora, Colorado
      "The [secrets kit] is a fantastic set for discreetness! The bra inserts work wonderfully and are completely undetectable. The vest is unlike any I have ever worn before, it simply goes around the waist! It has 4 packs to insert, 2 in the front and 2 in the back and velcro together. The packs are inserted into pockets that keep them from slipping around and making you uncomfortable. It is made of soft comfortable material. The scarf I chose was the orange MS scarf. It has 2 inserts for it also that are easily inserted and stay put well and is VERY comfortable to wear, cute accessory, and works well. Overall, I would say this is an EXCELLENT set! This works great for keeping us MSer's cool, or even menopausal women, while being discreet at the same time. You can easily wear these items to work and no one would know!"
    - Tammy in Canton, Illinois
      "We bought the CoolFit® Kit as a gift for my sister-in-law. She calls us every day to tell us how much she loves it and how many new ways she has found to use all the pieces. This was the best gift ever for someone with MS who lives in a hot, hot climate!"
    - Greg in California
      "I am writing to thank you, with all my heart, for the wonderful Kool Max® Vest, ice packs, and other cooling items I received from you just a week or so ago. I never could have afforded such items, and I really do know now that I can become more active now with this heat resistance equipment."
    - Elaine in Lexington, Indiana
      "Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the Kool Max Vest, Soft Ice® Cooling Pillow Case, and Evaporative Cooling Garden Hat shipped to me by your organization. Each of these items has already made a positive impact on the quality of my life and will continue to do so for years to come!"
    - Theresa in Golden, Colorado
      "I want to thank you so much for providing the Kool Max® cooling garments to wear this hot season! I have told many people of your kindness. We do not have central air conditioning, and I credit the vest for helping to keep me comfortable!"
    - Martha in Fort Morgan, Colorado
      "Thank you so very much. I have been miserable all this past summer, even in my house, because we only have a window unit for cooling and it doesn't cool it good enough. This cooling system will make my life so much easier to live. Thank you greatly and my God bless your work."
    - Laura in Bowie, Texas
      "I appreciate these Kool Max® cooling pieces. I pass out so easily, I don't have to get very warm at all. Now maybe I can have a life. Thank you again so much."
    - Eva in Berea, Kentucky
      "I love my CoolFit® Kit! I live in Florida and love to be outside. However, since being diagnosed with MS I get super tired and slow moving when it is really hot out. Not wanting MS to stop me from being me and enjoying all that Florida has to offer I ordered the CoolFit® Kit! I have been able to continue to enjoy many outdoor activities thanks to my Polar Products!!! It keeps me cool while all my friends are sweating up a storm! The material seems strong and well put together, I just hope it can keep up with me....time will tell!! The torso "vest" and ankle wraps are my favorite to use to give me immediate cooling relief that lasts for hours. Thank you so much for designing these products and I will highly recommend you to all my friends!"
    - Colleen in Gainesville, Florida
      "Thank you very much for providing me with the Kool Max® Poncho Vest Cooling Kit. Now I can enjoy summer events around western New York, without having to leave early due to the heat."
    - Pam in Buffalo, New York
      "I have MS and it is horrible in New Orleans in the summer. I bought this [Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest Kit] to help me be cooler when I am outdoors, I also bought the hat and the insert. I think it helped a lot because I was able to be outdoors and not suffer."
    - Lori in New Orleans
      "I have used the secrets vest, but on me, a petite it is too big to be a hidden vest, but it keeps me cool. The bra coolers are great and discreet. I can use them for a quick cool on my neck, my back, my wrists. These products are easy to use and are a must for people with MS." (Secrets Kit)
    -Kerri in Michigan
      "I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to you and the other team members that make the MSAA Cooling Program possible. I can now spend some time out in the sun doing what I love, gardening. Thanks again!"
    - Janice in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
      "Thank you so much for providing the Kool Max® cooling vest and accessories. How I wish I would've done this long ago! I am extremely heat sensitive and this will be a big help. I look forward to next spring, so that I can return (somewhat) to gardening. For that matter, I will even use the cooling equipment this winter, as so many indoor establishments are way overheated."
