Our cooling technology was selected after exhaustive testing of ice, gel, and phase change cooling packs. Only one technology proved superior and could meet our demands - and that technology is incorporated into every garment we design.
How to Activate & Use
Activation is done only once!
How long will Your CoolPaks stay cold?
In low-humid environments, you can expect a maximum of four (4) hours before your CoolPaks will expire. Headbands and Gloves will stay cold up to 2 hours.
High humidity can cut cooling time by as much as two hours. Most people order a second set of CoolPaks to extend their cooling time - or simply to have another set ready to cool at a later time.
When will you need to replace your CoolPak set?
You can use your CoolPaks over and over again, but at some point in time they will need to be replaced.
People who depend on cooling only during summer months could enjoy as many as four years with their CoolPaks. People in warmer climates may have to replace their CoolPaks sooner - particularly if a backup set is not put into rotation.
What does it mean when your CoolPaks soften?
As your CoolPaks absorb your body heat, they will soften. But they will continue to provide cooling even during this phase change!
Adaptation is what happens when you "get used to" the cool temperature of your CoolPaks. It's similar to what happens when you jump into a frigid swimming pool, then feel comfortable after 30 minutes. The easiest way to determine if your CoolPaks are still doing their job - is to place your hand on your skin beneath your vest. If your skin is still cool, your CoolPaks are still working.
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.
