Reduce the chance of heat-related illness and keep your core temperature down with these lightweight, customizable cooling vests.
Keep your body cool in hot weather with a Glacier Tek cooling vest. This lightweight cooling vest for men and women provides continuous cooling relief in hot areas without weighing you down. You can feel safe wearing this cooling vest under clothes or over outer garments. Unlike ice pack vests, these phase change cooling vests can be used directly against your skin without the fear of frostbite, tissue damage, or discomfort.
How long does a cooling vest last? Glacier Tek vests use phase change cooling packs to keep you feeling comfortable for up to 2.5 hours with a constant 59°F/15°C temperature. The cooling packs recharge in under 30 minutes or keep extra cooling packs on hand to swap out when needed.
Adjust the amount of cooling depending on your activity level and environment. For the most cooling, insert a large and a small cooling pack into each inside pocket of your vest. For less demanding conditions, such as office use, lighten the vest by using a single small or large pack in each pocket. Examples of uses include:
- Cooling gear for construction workers
- Cooling vest for outdoor work or play
- Cooling under personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Cooling while working a warehouse
- Anyone who needs help with heat during/after strenuous physical activity
Glacier Tek cooling vests are the best phase change cooling vests for hot activities due to their comfort and adaptability. The heavy-duty front zipper, side strap, and over-the-shoulder adjustability work together to ensure freedom of movement and the best fit possible. The included cooling pack set consist of one large 10.3 oz. 4-cell and one small 7 oz. 3-cell cooling pack. These horizontal cooling pack cells conform to your torso as you bend and stretch.
How are phase change cooling vests different? Evaporative vests rely on water to wet you down and are ineffective in humid conditions. Ice-based vests contain ice packs that are 32°F - too cold for most people and can damage skin. Phase change cooling material is a USDA-certified plant-based oil that maintains a comfortable 59°F for up to 2.5 hours in the most challenging heat.
