One of the perks of being a dedicated cooling brand is that everything we design, prototype, and test is based on your need to prevent heat exhaustion, matched by your desire to improve performance.
The cooling technology utilized in our products was selected after exhaustive testing of ice, gel, and phase change cooling packs. We tested cooling pearls, beads, and evaporative cooling. All but one proved insufficient in meeting our demands.
Oro Sports did not invent cooling vests; but we sure did redefine them.
Oro Sports co-founder, Luanne DiBernardo, first started prototyping and testing cooling wearables in 2009 with her brother, a former DKNY designer with heat intolerance due to a chronic condition. At that time, the siblings focused on chronic conditions and wellness markets with their Signature Cooling Vest.
Increasing incidents of in heat injuries in competitive sports - combined with a demand for performance-enhancing products - Oro Sports was born.
Co-founder Tom Burns owns the manufacturing facility that has stitched every cooling product since the start. The dynamics of this working partnership places design and manufacturing under one roof. The culmination of experience, knowledge, talent, and process places Oro Sports ahead of the curve in quality, innovation, customer service, and product development.
Shining a light on the thermoregulation demands of competitive athletes, the Oro Sports Team is aimed to demonstrate that heat exhaustion and heat strokes are 100% preventable. And Oro Sports is 100% ready to change the performance game.
