I bought this vest from direct vendor a couple of years ago to wear during the sweltering hot months here in southern Kentucky (100 degree + temps plus high humidity). It works as advertised cooling me and allowing me to ride at times I couldn't before due to the heat. The manufacturer advertises that it will last at least 5 hours before needing recharged but I find that I need to recharge mine every hour to two hours in real life (probably due to the wind causing faster evaporation on a motorcycle). I have also found that it works best when worn over a tee shirt and under my Joe Rocket Mesh (Phoenix) riding jacket as it slows evaporation a little while riding and still keeps me cool. I have also found that my tee shirt (and the top of my riding pants) are damp after/while wearing this vest but personally do not find this uncomfortable. I would suggest that riders consider getting the vest with the Mandarin collar (I got the one without) to help cool around the neck and to help prevent sunburn on the neck on the skin between where the top of your jacket and the bottom of your helmet occurs. I am finding that I wear this vest when outdoors and off the bike as well when the weather conditions are hot and otherwise brutal. This is among the best money I have spent to allow me to ride during the hot summer months. It also works during the fall and spring riding seasons for extra warming beneath your riding jacket if you don't charge it with water. All in all, I would purchase this vest again without hesitation.

I own and operate a lawn cutting business. This year we have been seeing temps in the high 90s and low 100s with heat indexes 8 to 10 degrees hotter than this. I had to try this cool vest out, figured it was worth the try even if it didnt work... but it actually does work.

If you want to get a full days use from the vest in 100 degree temps, you have to get the thing pretty wet... the con is that when you get it pretty wet it will tend to get the rest of your clothes and shorts/pants really wet too. I actually developed some sort of rash around my waist area due to being wet all day - but I'd rather have the rash than not use the vest.

"Cool" is a relative term with this vest. I would say I felt about 8 or 10 degrees cooler. So rather than feeling like it is 100, it felt more like around 90. But in my line of work thats a big difference especially when I am outside for 10 hours a day.

If you can imagine wearing a sweater vest and getting rained on alot, that's about what it feels like wearing this. So you do feel wet, and you do feel the weight of the water that has soaked into the vest... took a little getting used to, but after a few days I didnt even notice it.

Instructions are to "hand wash" the vest. Since mine gets pretty dirty I run it in my washing machine on a hand-wash cycle by itself every evening and so far it is holding up good. I just hang it up to dry until the morning when I then take it to the tub and dunk it in water.

Over all it was a good purchase for me.

I have a big problem.. high temperatures trigger my MS symptoms and when you LOVE gardening.. and all that weeding, digging, hoeing and growing.. and its 88 degrees and 75% humidity.. this can be a serious problem because the symptoms appear with horrifying speed, and it can be a day or two before I recover. However, to avoid this means working late in the day.

Gardening late in the evening means 1. You can't really see what you're doing and 2. Skeeters and other nibbling bugs! So, I decided to try this jacket. First time, I soaked it in cold water and wrung it out. I had it on over my underwear and a pair of shorts below. Once I got over the shock of the ice-water sensation (about 3 seconds), the cooling effect was immediate. I worked for three whole hours whith temps in the upper 80's. Unbelieveable! No symptoms whatsoever! I have taken B12 Methylcobalamin 2000 mcg daily, made by Wonderlabs here in the US.. this has actually reversed the nerve and frontal lobe lesions completely according to my last MRI. BUT it does not stop the actual process, which is excarcerbated by high temperatures (even from an infection) and stress. This vest has dealt with the former.. and for you bustier ladies, it's pretty flattering to wear with the elasticated side panels.. at least hubby thinks so! The only thing is that whilst I remained cool as one of my cucumbers, hubby roasted.. and is DEFINITELY going to get one of these! Now I have sorted out the heat problem I just have to find a way to deal with the stress issues!

About what I expected, and pretty close to the mainstream of reviews.
It's a little slicky when first used a time or two.
Doesn't do quite as well in high humidity, but it's better than nothing concerning the
high humidity.
Be sure and not over-wet the vest as it can seep down onto your legs.
Evaporative effects last a good 4 hours.
Decent price.
Would buy again.

Okay ... I've only used this vest once, so keep that in mind as you peruse the reviews.

I train dogs. In Phoenix, AZ. And it's HOT. I make sure my dogs are taken care of: cool coats, GoDog, portable fans, spray bottles ... but I didn't take care of myself.

I've used this vest only one time so far. I soaked it, put it in a cooler, and then then put it on at 6:45pm. Temp: 102F. I kept in on throughout both dog obedience classes and didn't take it off until 10pm. It was still cool!

When I took it off, I hung it over the shower rod to dry and the next morning, it was STILL cool!

This vest is a keeper. Even soaked, it is lightweight and manageable. My dog training classes are very athletic and the vest didn't weigh me down at all. I absolutely felt an improvement over the nights when I was spraying myself with water, trying to make it through two classes. My training buddies kept coming over to feel the vest and couldn't believe how cool it was throughout the entire evening.

I'm sure it will NOT be as effective in higher humidity. This vest makes use of the evaporative cooling system so high humidity is going to put a damper on the cooling effect. But ... right now, I'm a happy camper.

I purchased a Large ... I wear a 16-18 size top. It fits nicely - doesn't bind - perfect.
