Standard Basic Cooling Vests are a great solution to reduce and combat heat stress. Standard Basic Cooling Vests use PhaseCore, a phase change material (PCM), to provide a cooling effect to the body’s core by absorbing body heat. The Standard Cooling Vest has a two-piece, over-the-shoulder design that makes it extremely comfortable when worn under another vest or when sitting.
Users: Law Enforcement Officers, Automobile Drivers, Wheelchair Users, Industrial Workers, X-Ray Technicians, Surgeons, Custodial Engineers.

How does it work?
Standard Cooling Vests are fitted with a set of sixteen n(16) PhaseCore 28 elements, which have an activation point of 82.4°F (28°C). When the body temperature rises above this point, the elements begin to absorb body heat. When heat is absorbed, the PhaseCore elements provide a comfortable and soothing cooling effect. Standard Cooling Vests hold PhaseCore elements close to the body allowing them to absorb heat most effectively.
Is if effective?
Tests completed in a hot environment have proven that PhaseCore technology is effective in helping to combat the rise in a person’s body surface temperature when in a hot environment. Standard Cooling Vests are effective for up to 3 hours, actual time varies based on physical activity, body type, and the environmental conditions.
How does it recharge?
Standard Cooling Vests can be recharged by storing the PhaseCore elements in an environment less than the activation point. PhaseCore elements can be recharged more quickly in colder environments. Refrigeration is not required, but will make the recharge period shorter. PhaseCore elements are completely recharged when they return to a solid state. PhaseCore is simple, safe, and reusable.
The Standard Basic Cooling Vest is One-Size Fits Most. The vest fits chest widths 33 to 50 inches.
