With more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing cooling garments, we hear from many individuals on how our cooling products have helped them manage their heat intolerance and enhance their quality of life.
"I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, "Thank you"! Due to my son Ezekiel having an extreme form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome, he is unable to regulate his own body temperature. This has hindered his quality of life, making him unable to play like normal children or even the possibility of stepping outside into the Florida heat. But that all changed when we received the Polar Child's Cooling Vest. Ezekiel loves his new cooling vest. He is super proud of it and wants to wear it all the time. No longer does he have to walk around holding ice packs on his back and neck. You guys at Polar Products Incorporated are amazing and doing God's work! Businesses STRIVE to provide or produce products that improve their customers quality of life. These products impact other people's lives and change their lives for the better. I can honestly say Polar Products have done this for Ezekiel and the rest of my family. "
