A new spin on our best-selling cooling vest! This vest has a Velcro closure on the front for a sleek, clean look. The Kool Max® Velcro Vest features our patent pending spinal cooling design that lowers weight and increases cooling efficiency.

Price: $144.27

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 at the chest, waist and shoulders 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 Velcro® 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. COMFORTABLE 100% COTTON
The cooling vest shell is constructed of durable and machine washable 100% cotton twill.

4. KOOL MAX® COOLING PACKS
Kool Max® frozen water-based cooling packs require access to a freezer and offer the highest level of cooling energy. These reusable packs deliver comfortable cooling for up to 3-4 hours. It takes more energy to charge these packs in a freezer and in return, the packs offer greater cooling energy than Cool58® cooling packs. (Please note: cooling times are estimates and will vary depending on climate, body metabolism and activity.) The different vest sizes include eight (8) to twelve (12) 5" x 6" packs. See the size chart for more information.

Two Kool Max 3 x 6 inch cold packs
5. 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.

6. VARIABLE WEIGHT
Weight may be adjusted by varying the number of cooling packs used. Need a lighter weight vest? You don't have to use all of the packs! The use of separate, individual packs allows the number of cooling packs used to be customized for each person's preference and size. Some people find that using just three packs down the spine works well, resulting in a vest that weighs just 1.5 lbs.! Others prefer all of the packs except the two on the upper chest. Our design allows many options!

How to find your size: 

This vest is adjustable at the shoulders, chest and waist. Therefore, it will fit a large range of sizes. 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. 
  • Please note: the weight range is simply a guide; there are many exceptions for different body types. The optional extension strap kit includes extension straps for the waist, chest and shoulders. The extension strap kit adds up to 20" in circumference and 5" in length to any vest size. This allows an extra fit adjustment for large people, extra long torsos or extra large chests or waists on smaller people. Click here to purchase the extension strap kit.

Details: I ordered the velcro vest because it has more flexibility. I am a corrections officer in a hot, prison with no A/C and suffer from chronic heat stroke conditions. This vest and neck cooler keep me cool for about 4 hours and then have to switch the Kool Max packs out. Polar Products get 5 stars from me! Their products really work!
