Heat stress and illness can be very dangerous and even deadly. In an effort to combat this and to help people concentrate and operate safely in hot environments in 1987 Shafer Enterprises invented the Cool Shirt.
They have since been used by everybody from race car driver to picnickers. If you need to cool-off at work, on the track, on the field or just whilst gardening, Cool Shirt will have a solution for you.
The Water Shirts work by circulating cool water through non-kink tubing around the wearer’s body. As this water moves through the system it takes the heat away from the body cooling you down. This water then flows back through the System Unit to a reserve of ice cold water. The circulating water automatically cools before being re-circulated around the shirt, vest or pants.
As well as their popular Water Shirts they also Cool Shirt also have a range of Co2 powered vests.
There is a Cool Shirt System available for any situation.
For ordering a water cooled shirt system all you have to do is:

Who are cooling vests for?
At The Warming Store we have cooling vests available for a range of activities and uses.
How do they work?
We have 3 styles of cooling vests which work in different ways to help you keep your cool.
Evaporative Cooling Vest
These use the natural effect of evaporation to cool you down. When these vests are placed into water the specially made non-toxic material absorbs hundreds of times its weight in water. This stored water is then slowly released. In hot areas this water will start to evaporate. As it does it the heat from the wearer is transferred into the air helping to reduce your temperature.
Phase Changing Vests
These non-toxic vests have a large pocket front and back in which a refrigerated, frozen, water or air conditioned cooled pack can be inserted. This flexible cooled pack will then help reduce the wearers’ temperature for up to 4 hours. These inserts can be refrozen as and when necessary. Each vest comes with one set of packs. For all day cooling we suggest ordering extra packs which can be kept in a freezer or cooler until it is necessary to exchange them.
Pumped Water Cooling Shirts
These are the most advanced and the cooles
