    I hope it works for you, not cheap.

    I can't remember which one mr sir ended up with but he said it worked well, but I think you had to put it in ice water.

    We had a wet summer but luckily it didn't get hot this year for some reason. This is the one I decided on, might get it next summer.

    That vest wouldn't work for MB as it is an evaperative cooler. When the humidity is as high as down south nothing evaperates.....

    High humidity also means that things get moldy very quick, at least in these parts. One reason I hate the rainy season during early summer.

    I had a vest like that and it was heavy/ dripping water all the time. It didn't cool for "hours" and you needed ice water to make it effective, not tap water.

    I don't mind it hot but humidity is a killer. Maybe this one might be better then.

    I'm currently using those "cooling tubes." They work great for 20 to 30 minutes, then I need a fresh one. They are truely better than nothing!

    How much does it weigh? Can't wait to hear if it is worth it. I have a new climber from New Jersey and he is already feeling the heat.
    I am umbilically connected to the temperate zone, it brought me life, it brought me love I never have out grown.
