    Core temps are lower

    Posted by Mike on 17th Jul 2017

    The jackets work well. Core temps are lower. Proven by our own thermal scans. Problem is that people are not convinced because they still sweat and their shirts are wet. It is mental as they don't seem as worn out by day's end. The expander straps are difficult for some to use. The should be made to just click in the existing strap buckles.
