We've combined the benefits of both cooling technologies in the unique Military Kool Max®/Cool58® & Evaporative Cooling Vest (#MCV).
Price: $189.00

1. ADJUSTABLE, CUSTOM FIT
It is important for cooling vests to fit snug to the body for optimal cooling. This cooling vest has adjustable hook and loop straps on the sides for a snug, comfortable and customized fit.

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 sizes. Wear the vest over clothing or discreetly underneath.

3. YOUR CHOICE OF COOLING TECHNOLOGY
Choose between our best selling Kool Max® frozen water-based cooling packs or our Cool58® phase change packs! Kool Max® packs require access to a freezer and offer the highest level of cooling energy, while Cool58® cooling packs freeze solid at a moderate and comfortable temperature of 58° Fahrenheit, so they can be activated in a freezer, refrigerator, or even a bucket of ice water. See full comparison of the cooling pack technologies in the "How Does it Work?" section. The vest includes four (4) 6" x 15" Kool Max® or 6" x 15" Cool58® packs. See the size chart for more information.

4. 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.

See the size chart for more information.

Four Kool Max 6 x 15 inch cooling strip packsHow do Kool Max® water-based cooling packs work? 

  • Kool Max® frozen water-based cooling packs require access to a freezer and offer the highest level of cooling energy. It takes more energy to charge these packs in a freezer and in return, the packs offer greater cooling energy than Cool58® cooling packs. 
  • These reusable packs deliver comfortable cooling for up to 3-4 hours. (Please note: cooling times are estimates and will vary depending on climate, body metabolism and activity.)
  • Packs are non-toxic and non-flammable.
  • Works in any climate - extreme heat and humidity are no problem! The cooling performance is not impacted by humidity or outside temperature.

Four Cool58 phase change cooling packsHow do Cool58® phase change cooling packs work? 

  • Cool58® cooling packs freeze solid at a moderate and comfortable temperature of 58° Fahrenheit (14.4° Celsius), so they can be frozen in a freezer, refrigerator, or even a bucket of ice water. 
  • Once activated, these reusable packs deliver comfortable cooling for up to 2-3 hours. (Please note: cooling times are estimates and will vary depending on climate, body metabolism and activity.)
  • Packs are non-toxic and non-flammable.
  • Packs do not require a freezer! Packs can simply be submerged in ice water or placed in a refrigerator or freezer to activate. Easy to use - packs can be activated by simply submerging the packs into ice water for up to 20 minutes when access to freezers is not available.
  • Works in any climate - extreme heat and humidity are no problem! The cooling performance is not impacted by humidity or outside temperature.
 

How does Evaporative cooling work? 

  • Water causes a natural cooling effect as it evaporates; these garments are made of a special fabric which holds the cooling energy for an extended period of time. Gently wring out excess water and it's ready to wear! 
  • Once activated, the evaporative cooling will provide many additional hours of cooling relief. (Please note: cooling times are estimates and will vary depending on climate, body metabolism and activity.)
  • Works best in a dry, low-humidity climate.

  • One (1) cooling vest
    • This vest is a hybrid of phase change pack and evaporative cooling. This means that the vest provides additional cooling when it's wet, or can be used as a cooling vest even without the phase change packs.
    • Unisex design adjusts at the sides with hook and loop tabs and has a zipper-pull front.
    • Packs fit into insulated pockets inside the 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.
    • Control the weight by varying the number of packs used.
    • Discreet: can be worn over or beneath clothing.

How to find your size:

This vest is adjustable at the shoulders, chest and waist. Therefore, it will fit a wide range of body types. 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.
