About HyperKewl Evaporative Cooling:
- This simple and effective technology works by combining water with our HyperKewl Fabric to create garments that gradually release water through evaporation to keep you cool, but comfortable. Typical applications include personal cooling, outdoor safety, industrial safety, construction, emergency services, military, outdoor recreation, athletics, motorcycling and equine.
What is Hyperkewl Evaporative cooling?
HyperKewl Evaporative Cooling material is a unique fabric that absorbs and slowly releases water through evaporation. We look at this process as "super-charging" the bodies natural cooling process, thereby protecting the wearer against heat stress. HyperKewl works to cool you during the competition or strenuous activity.
Science behind TechNiche Hyperkewl Cooling Vest:
TechNiche products are made using our HyperKewl fabric which utilizes a unique chemistry to achieve rapid absorption, stable water storage and controlled evaporation. Hyperkewl fabric allows scientists to create garments that absorb, hold and slowly evaporate the water so that a large amount of water is placed around a user, while they stay dry, and then evaporate it to help “super-charge” the bodies natural cooling method.
Human bodies will normally cool itself off through the evaporation of sweat on the skin, with HyperKewl fabrics, adding to this natural process, creating a cooling effect that can cool the user up to 10-15 degree F below the ambient temperature, depending on airflow. (NB High humidity (90%) will diminish the fabric’s ability to evaporate water and therefore provide cooling.) An easy and safe cooling process that simply helps to do what nature has already done, cooling through the evaporation of water.
Who are cooling vests for?
At The Warming Store we have cooling vests available for a range of activities and uses.
- Construction workers, gardeners and anyone else who works outside during the summer
- Military personnel
- People suffering from medical conditions with heat sensitivity
- Sportsmen and sportswomen
- Emergency Services
- Anyone who wants to enjoy the summer without being overwhelmed by heat
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.
- Light weight.
- Easy to use throughout the day. If it dries out all you have to do is submerge in to water for hours more cooling.
- No electricity is required making them perfect for people on the move.
- The most affordable form of cooling vest.
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.
- Hard wearing.
- Works in high humidity.
- Each cool pack can be reused.
- Does not produce condensation.
- Typically provides a cooler temperature than evaporative cooling vests.
- Old-school technology that works
- Fits large. Not as effective in high humidity, a problem with any evaporative cooling garment.
- Keeps me a lot cooler at the horse barn
- Super lightweight, does not limit range of motion or "dig in" anywhere on the torso, vest allows you to 'show off the guns'. Initial quality of sewing is excellent on this garment.
