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!"

"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 Front] vest 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!"

"I have multiple sclerosis & since HOT weather is MS enemy #1, I have been on a "mission" for over 2 years trying to find ANYTHING that will enable me to keep my body temperature cooler so I can enjoy outdoor activities (or go outdoors at all!). 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! Honestly, if you or someone you care about gets TOO hot - buy this VEST. You'll be SO glad you did!!!"

"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!"

"I have the Polar 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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"As an individual with MS heat drains me quickly. I recently purchased a second 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."

"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."

"I ordered your [Cool58® 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."

Horseback Riding

"This [Kool Max® Fashion Vest] vest changed my life! I ride horses, and I was actually able to show on an 85 degree day! In the past I would've had to go home at noon... but thank goodness I didn't, because I won! Now I don't have to plan around the weather to compete. Thank you!"

Daily Activities

"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 o bviously 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."

"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! H eck I'm even doing housework in it. Love love love it! (Kool Max® Zipper Front Vest)"

- Becky in Chicago, Illinois

"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."

"Thanks so very much for the assistance. The 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."

"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!"

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!"

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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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!"

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."
