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.
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!
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
Be sure and not over-wet the vest as it can seep down onto your legs.
Evaporative effects last a good 4 hours.
Would buy again.
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.

Not the best product. I followed the instructions and it stayed cool for a short time, but all the water was dripping out all over the place. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Emily Simonson

After soaking and putting on, my arms stop sweating and I'm much cooler. First one was misplacedPublished 15 days ago by Mark D.
This is great. I used it in 110 degree weather. It is thicker than a shirt so it keeps the moisture longer. There was weight to it from the water but it wasn't a big deal. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Joseph
