The summer heat can finally be beat with Macna's new Dry Cooling Vest! Designed to keep you cool AND dry during hot weather or if you live in a hot climate, the process is simple - fill the vest with 500ml of tap water, wear it over a synthetic base layer, and prepare to be like Fonzie - COOL!
To size yourself for the vest:
- Order your normal t-shirt size
The vest should be worn snug, but not tight. A bit of an air cushion between the body and the vest allows wind to pass through and aids in the evaporative cooling effect.
Does it work in humidity?
Testing has been done, and a definite answer exists. The answer is yes, it does work in humid conditions. At 80% humidity or higher the cooling effect starts to diminish. This is most apparent when you are standing still. While moving on a motorcycle air is pushed through the cooling vest and aids in the evaporation which enhances evaporation. This offsets the diminished performance caused when humidity levels are high by effectively turbo charging it.
- Anti Microbial
- Machine Washable - Place in a mesh bag, use a gentle cycle and a mild soap. Hang to dry.
Special Note: Overfilling the vest diminishes its ability to evaporate properly and renders the vest inoperable.
