Hot Climate

"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!"

"Thank you so much. My cooling vest just arrived. Perfect timing with heat index of 110 degrees. Too, too hot, but thank you."

"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."

"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!"

"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!"

"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."

"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
Product: Kool Max® Adjustable Zipper Vest
"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 y ou Polar and your help to those with MS."

"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
Product: Kool Max® Zipper Vest Kit
"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."

"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, s uch 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"

"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."

-Denise in Florida

"This [Soft Ice® Cooling] pillowcase really helps to cool me down at night when the night temps are in the high 70's. I have MS and this is really helpful."

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."

"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."

"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
Product: Kool Max® Adjustable Zipper Vest
"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, o therwise it would have been up around my neck!"

- Kate in Michigan
Product: Kool Max® Adjustable Zipper Vest
"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
Product: Gardening Kit
"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."

- Marsha in Perris, California
Product: Kool Max® Adjustable Zipper Vest
"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."

"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."

- Steve in Oregon
Product: Kool Max® Adjustable Zipper Vest
"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!"
