How does the Dry Evaporative Cooling Technology work?

1. Activate vest or cap – fill vest or cap with water and distribute water evenly
2. Inner dry tech membrane does its thing – technology gradually releases water through evaporation from the inside out keeping you cool, comfortable, and most importantly, dry
How cool will it get?
Will cool up to 15˚F (10˚C) below ambient air temp
*Note: high levels of humidity (60-80%) can affect cooling ability
How much water is needed?
Vest: 16 – 20 oz depending on size (400-600ml)
Cap: 3 oz (89ml)
*Note: more water ≠ better cooling, DON’T OVERFILL
How long does the cooling effect last?
Up to 3 days depending on environment
How tight should the vest fit?
As close to the skin as possible – the closer it is, the more cooling you feel. Recommend wearing over a lightweight t-shirt
Can the vest be worn underneath other garments?
The vest needs airflow to breathe so a mesh vest is fine, but heavier layers are not recommended
Do I need to clean the inside of the vest?
NO! Leave it be. It has an anti-microbial treatment that will keep itself clean and free from any bacteria or fungal growth
Can I wash the product?
You sure can, but keep that cap CLOSED
