    Good advice, MasterBlaster.
    Like what you said, it seems to last about an hour for me before I need to replace/recharge the gelpacs.

    I'm interested in getting some thin, closed cell foam to put to the outside of the packs within the sleeve. No need to lose cooling power by gaining external heat from the air and sun.


    Not buying a Coolvest to work in the heat is like not buying a warm jacket for wearing in the cold.

    Sure did. I started posting there on about page 53. Think there was a few vids too. I haven't looked at that post in a while. I'll catch up on it tonight. I wore my cooling vest a few days ago setting the sound system up for an outdoor show. I was the only one that wasn't drenched when the show started.

    Just the band members. One of them works at a paper mill and said they had some at work for some of the employees but not that brand. I've been wearing mine home from work and in the gas station and once in the grocery store. Got a couple of looks but no one said anything. Mine is orange and my wife says it looks like a life jacket to her.

    She is correct... It is a life jacket... Well, life vest.

    They could print...
