Met my needs!

Comments about Phase Change Cooling Vest:

Used vest while inspecting vessels in Houston, Texas in 105F heat. Machinery spaces were even hotter. Lasted for the full three hours and even kept me cool on the walk back to the car. Well worth the investment.

Cons

  • Cost

Best Uses

    Comments about TechNiche Phase Change Cooling Vest:

    We use these under heavy silicone haunted house costumes to prevent heat stroke during summer and early fall appearances. The actors would not survive in these costumes without the cooling effect they produce. They are tolerated better than the blue ice cooling vests.

    3 hours cooling?, not so much.

    By Tx Master Peace Officer

    from Dallas, Tx

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Good concept

    Cons

    • Carrier poorly designed
    • Not for body armor
    • Not for high heat

    Best Uses

    • Cool for dog bed

    Comments about Phase Change Cooling Vest:

    I was so excited about this concept: until I used it. I got this for 100deg. heat with high humidity
    in Tx. Tested on 95deg. day with high humidity.
    The vest empty (no cold packs) is very bulky and heavy, not what I would have invisioned. While wearing the vest it stops cooling in about 45 min. when the packs turn to liquid form. Then this heavy thick carrier makes you sweat like you are wearing a ski jacket; and because the sweat is trapped to your body it starts to get hot. Within 1 1/2 hrs. I was so dehydrated I had to change out of it; my micro thin t-shirt soaked like a hot sponge. as a 17 year police veteran I can tell you there is no way you could wear this under body armor, I would have passed out. Cops stay far,far away if you want this for under body armor wear. If the military wears these under flack vests I can't even imagine it. But now I freeze the packs and put the vest in my Pug's bed and she absolutely loves it. Go figure.
    If the carrier was made like the cool max body armor holder/T-shirt with all the holes in it and very thin it would make all the difference in the world. Hint Hint.....

    Vest is a must have in Texas heat

    By Hot in Texas

    from Wichita Falls, TX

    Pros

    • Go shopping
    • I use my vest daily
    • To garden
    • Walk the dog

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Keep cool while outside

      Comments about TechNiche Phase Change Cooling Vest:

      I am very sensitive to the heat yet live in NW Texas. Summers are very hot, often 100+ I wear my vest when I am gardening and walking the dog in the morning. As the heat rises, I wear it to do shopping and other errands. I tried the evaporation vest while I was in Italy this summer since I didn't have access to refrigeration. The gel vest is so much better!
