Arctic Heat Cooling
|The Arctic Heat Cooling Vest contains
a special non-toxic completely biodegradable viscose
gel that absorbs the water it is soaked
in. The materials used in the vest are designed to lower skin
temperature, which in turn stabilises the core body temperature.
By controlling and stabilising the core body temperature a person
can perform at his or her optimum level for
much longer, sustained periods.
It also reduces sweating and assists the natural cooling system of the body.
The Cool Vest is manufactured from scientifically tested and proven body-cooling materials - Sportwool ™, Microfibre and pockets of gel which are designed to hold any temperature for extended periods.
Medical experts have long stressed the importance of controlling body temperature. Since the early 1820's there have been studies that have shown that cooling the skin before activity can sustain performance over longer periods and postpone overheating.
The ice vest is easy to use and can be activated anywhere by simply submerging the cooling vest into water for 15 minutes so that the crystals in the pocket swell into gel form.
Once activated the cooling vest can be placed in the refrigerator or freezer. The vest can also be placed inside the resealable bag/satchel it was purchased in and put on ice or in an ice slurry. The length of cooling time is subject to outside temperature and body heat considerations.
As a guide if soaked in an ice water / slurry for 5-10 minutes the vest will stay cold for 30-60 minutes. If frozen for two hours or longer it will stay cold for 1-2 hours.
The ice vests are available in several styles - White zip cool vest and Blue zip cool vest plus special order fire resistant, high visibility, and pullover sports. We can custom design cooling vests to meet your requirements - minimum numbers apply.
