Frequently Asked Questions

 

Will the cooling vest make my clothes wet?

No it can be used dry, clothes will not get wet or damp. The Arctic Heat cooling vest can be used in either a wet or dry manner. To use dry, activate the cooling vest and then hang to dry, removing any moisture. Then you can chill or freeze the vest. Take it out of the freezer and wear it over or under clothes. This is the most common way of using the cooling vest. The inner lining of the cooling vest is a special moisture wicking material which also helps to keep the user cool and dry.
 
The cool vest can also be dunked in ice water for a couple of minutes and gently wrung out to remove excess water and worn, typically used in this manner by sports people after an event, and normally when the cool vest has lost its initial coolness. Used in this method clothes may get a little damp, but generally the athlete is sweaty anyway.

Do the cooling jackets give an athlete a performance advantage?

Many researchers have documented the use of cooling jackets in conserving fluid, which would have otherwise been lost in sweat. Increasing the temperature gradient between the athlete’s core temperature and their skin temperature has the effect of reducing sweating – this then delays the onset of dehydration and performance decrement. Of course, the better the cooling product retains the cold, greater the benefit for the athlete. With Arctic Heat’s scientifically proven properties athletes can maximize the cooling advantages.

Where do I measure to get the correct size?

Take your chest or bust measurement. The cooling vest needs to be a firm fit for optimal cooling and to stop the cool vest moving about during exercise.
