    They ARE heavy... it's a trade-off.

    If I didn't have to wear it I surely wouldn't!

    But you're in Oregon. Hot for you is 85 degrees.
    Too humid here for that stuff. I'm already drenched with sweat, a wet rag doesn't do a lot more. Had a customer give us some last year and I never picked mine up off the table. The other guys used them for one day and I never saw them again.

    The coolvest isn't a wet rag.

    It's dry as a bone.

    But I know the ones you're talking about.

    I wish, we're Mediterranean type weather here. Average about 3 weeks over 100 degrees each summer. Often 80 to 90 days without a drop of rain .

    I had no idea it got that hot up there, Willie. We are in the 90s every day but it also rains every day as well. Morning lows are about 70 with 90-100% humidity.

    Brian, it's like the monsoon season. you must have a lot of creepy crawlers in your neighborhood.
