Inside or out, if temperatures get too hot your body is a prime target for heat stress. And for those who want to keep cool and comfortable without others knowing, we made the Concealable Cool Vest.

Additionally, the Concealable Cool Vest features over-the-shoulder and side strap adjustability to fit just about any body type.

I put the vest in the refrigerator when I get home from work.
In the morning I put the vest on over my work shirt and ride to work, takes about 30 minutes.
I take it off and put on a chair.
10 hours later it is still solid, so I put it on and ride in 100+ degree weather home.
I am still hot, but I don't feel like passing out. so it works for me.
I'm a guy who sweats a lot in the summer time, especially when in dress clothes (i.e. suit, dress pants & shirt w/ ties, etc.). When my core temperature rises, my face and chest sweat profusely. Hot days get my dress shirt and undershirt soaked, and makes me feel disgusting and sick feeling. I purchased this cooling vest to try to alleviate that problem in certain situations. I specifically used this when helping to park cars in Pennsylvania in July, at a convention center. I wore it under a dress shirt and tie, over my under shirt. Due to condensation and heat transfer, my under shirt was wet after three hours of use. My dress shirts, however, was dry. It kept me cool and sweat free in 88 degree afternoon sun (including keeping my face from sweating). I did have to make sure to have a looser fitting dress shirts, especially since I used all four cooling packs in the vest. It was fairly comfortable when standing, I could not comfortably sit with the back cooling packs installed. Overall, I am very happy with the cooling vest. I used it three straight days in hot, semi humid weather, and it definitely helped keep me cooler and from any heat exhaustion.
I am a window cleaner in Oklahoma and spend many hours outdoors, often in the sun. The heat saps my energy. Then I heard about Glacier Tek cooling vests. I ordered the concealable vest and wear it under my t-shirt. It's been like a miracle! It keeps me comfortable, the heat no longer wears me out, and it only takes 20 minutes to "recharge" in my cooler full of ice. The only problem with it is sometimes the shoulder strap rubs against my neck and the area with the velcro is a little scratchy. I never undo the shoulder straps, so I cut a couple of socks to place over that area--problem solved. The vest does show under my t-shirt, but I don't care. I know someone who decided to wear it over his shirt even though it's "concealable". If you work in the heat, buy this vest--or any of the others. You won't regret it.
This product works great, but as a woman, I would like to be able to wear it under my clothes and not look like I'm wearing a bullet proof vest. That's what I thought I was getting when it said "concealable". It's not! I wish the ice packets were not so big and bulky. I will wear this when working at home or hiking but would not wear to a public event.
I have been wearing this cool vest under my santa suit.It has been a life saver.Without this vest I could only wear it for 15-20 minutes and would be soaked with sweat.I stay much cooler with the cool vest. Thank you for this vest.
Having tried other forms of 'cooling' while riding, I didn't expect much from this vest, but I sprung for it anyway because it is HOT in Texas this time of year. I put the cooling packs in the freezer and they were frozen solid when I put them in the vest and took off. I was amazed that I stayed cool and contrary to the usage booklet, I could feel the coolness at all times. I wore the vest from Dallas, TX. to Homer, LA. (about four hours) before taking it off. There was still small pieces of ice in the packets and they were still cool. The ambient temp was 90 degrees. Not HOT, but pretty warm. I expect between 2 and 2.5 hours when the temps are 105. I am pleased with the performance of the vest and glad there is something that really works out there. The vest is comfortable and did not impair my mobility at all.
Two and a half hours of cool comfort in 93 degree heat...I never thought it was possible. Thank you so much for a product that has changed my life!
