Thread: Cooling Vests

  1. #11
    Thank you all. I have this problem with sweating that has not been diagnosed yet. The websites referred above have been helpful. I want a Misty Mate!!!!!

    Without change, there would be no butterflies.

    A search for cooling vests brought this up.

    Don't look at just medical cooling vests, but also those for industrial use (which are often cheaper).

    Also consider a misting system such as the Misty Mate which can be just as good for cooling:

    i like that vest as i am out in sun on weekends 4 to 5 hrs before sun goes down
    i can/t drink enough water or stay cool this looks like it will do the trick

    nurse the pariffin looks to freeze quicker
