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 vest includes four (4) 6" x 15" double-bagged Kool Max® pack strips. See the size chart for more information.

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.

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: 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: 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.

Details: I was diagnosed with MS almost 5 years ago. The disease has made me VERY sensitive to extreme temperatures, especially heat. During the summer where I live, the average daily temp. averages between 90F-100F making it nearly impossible to safely or comfortably leave A/C cooled environments. This vest has solved all of that!!

Empty Star Empty Star Full Star Full Star Full Star

Details: I use this vest for commuting on a motorcycle in the summer heat. The ice packs already have a small tear in them after a couple weeks of use. The vest is hard to zip together with all the packs in. Overall it does the job and I'm satisfied with it. Note from Polar: Hi John, thank you for your feedback on the Industrial Kool Max® Vest. If the vest is difficult to zip with the packs inserted, it may be too snug. We do sell chest, waist and shoulder extension straps if that would help you get ... More details

Details: I am now 65, and this extra heat while mowing was killing me. With the vest on I can mow in 90 degree weather as though it was 60 degree weather. It is literally a life saver. My only complaint is that it is a bit hard to put on the way the side are attached by velcro straps only.
