My retirement gig is driving a school bus. Living in South-Central Kentucky it gets mighty HOT! With air conditioned schools classes begin in early August running to early June. The schoolhouse may be cool but the driver area can get to 115 degrees. I needed something before temperatures started to rise this spring. Was I relieved when I searched the internet to find some sort of mobile cooling devise finding 'StaCool Vests'. Wasting no time I 'INVESTED' in one because the temperature was on the rise. Following the washing machine hydration procedure and placing in the deep freeze I was prepared for the worst. I'm now using my 'God Send' cooling vest every afternoon. My afternoon route takes about 3 hours with the vest lasting the entire time. Yesterday I wore my leather vest on top of the 'StaCool' vest to insulate the 'ThermoPaks' hoping they would last longer. I was pleasantly surprised finding the 'ThermoPaks' still nicely frozen. Try it - Mikey likes it! But he'll wear anything! My only suggestion for 'StaCool' vest makers would be to have an optional 'Highly Reflective' safety vest. I'd find that handy when riding my motorcycle. I bet law enforcement, emergency personnel, road crews as well as anyone working around moving traffic would be interested. Otherwise keep up the cool work.

For medical reasons, I was unable to withstand summer temperatures, even in the 80's. With this vest I am now able to play 18 holes of golf and enjoy my grandkids entire ball games in complete comfort! I feel like I have my life back!!! Thanks StaCool!

As a machinist with 40 years of working on close tolerance parts in temperature and humidity controlled shops I started working in a shop that is open and subject to all of that great Maryland/DC heat and humidity. I started last year near the end of summer and knew I had to do something or my spoiled self was going to suffer. I researched different vests and really liked what I saw with STACOOL VESTS. I made the purchase and put it to the test. I can say that my world is going to be VERY COOL from here on out. I tried one reviewers idea of wearing it over a T-shirt and agree that it is most comfortable that way. I hand stitched our company patch over the vest so I could be "Uniform Compliant" and some of my coworkers asked me which Boss gave me the product. I told them "The Smartest One" and told them to order their own and they too could STACOOL and smart like me!

We purchased this vest for our son with special needs. He is heat intolerant and does not sweat. We just recently got the vest and so far it has been good. It actually works like a weighed vest for him as well due to the weight of the ice packs. Not too heavy though. We did have to switch sizes as he measured for an XXS but we returned it for an XS. It fits nicely and the customer service was wonderful! Hope to use it for many years.

This vest does what it claims: keep your body temperature down. I suffer from cholinergic urticaria (heat hives). When I'm outside on a hot day, sitting in a poorly air-conditioned office, or severely stressed, I break out in hives. What an awful feeling! It's truly embarrassing to, in a public place, start pouring water on myself to get cool. I needed a better solution.
StaCool's under vest seems to be doing the trick. The gel packs were fairly easy to hydrate, and they slipped very easily into the vest. (That's no small thing. With other brands, it was almost impossible to get the gel packs to fit right.)
Here are a few other notes, in case they're helpful to prospective buyers:
- I'm 5'10, 155 lbs. Every shirt I own is a MEDIUM. Since the cooling vest is meant to be a snug fit, I ordered one size down (SMALL). I was shocked to discover it was still too big and that I needed an EXTRA SMALL.
- I wear an undershirt beneath the vest---not because it's too cold, but because the undershirt helps hold it in place.
- This vest is more concealable than its competitors, but I can still see the back of it jutting out beneath my shirt. That doesn't bother me, though. Being cool's better than feeling cool!
- StaCool's customer service is excellent. They 1) answered questions over the phone before I bought my vest; 2) provided me electronic copies of the gel pack instructions when I misplaced my print copies; and 3) allowed me to exchange my vest for a different size.
I'm very happy with my vest as well as StaCool's customer service. They've got a customer for life!

I bought this vest to help me with my heat intolerance related to MS. I have worn in at my job teaching Physical Education outside. It kept me cool for almost 3 hours. It's not too cold, but it does a good job of keeping my body temperature down. The other day I got really hot in my house and I put the vest on and within a few minutes my body cooled down tremendously. I also love the cool style of the vest. That's what help me determine which ice vest to purchase. It's very comfortable to wear and very easy to put the ice packs in. I definitely recommend this vest.

Vest is a nice product. wish it had a quicker way to dry than drip dry. I can only afford the one at present and it is not quite dry when I start out. Although I guess you could say it adds to the cool for the first hour of wearing.

I have MS, and got the cooling vest on the advice of my medical case manager for outdoor summer use. I wore it last weekend to our grandsons' outdoor birthday celebration - an afternoon picnic on a very warm day - and was able to comfortably participate for a few hours. It's both lightweight and comfortable to wear. This was an excellent purchase for me.

Tried it today while working in what feels like over 100*F. Marvelous.
