The Veskimo 9 Quart Hand-Carry Cooler measures 11" x 9" (viewed from above) and is 13" tall to the top of the integral handle. Inside the soft outer shell is a rigid airtight container with a leak-proof locking lid that houses the circulation pump and serves as the reservoir of ice and water. A 3-foot long hose connects to the Personal Microclimate Cooling Vest (Sold Separately).

The 9 Quart Hand-Carry Cooler holds twice as much ice and water as the Backpack, is ideally suited for use on a motorcycle, ATV or in a car and can be powered by any of the available Power Source Options.
The Veskimo Personal Cooling System provides the wearer with consistent, continuous relief from heat stress, even when worn under heavy protective clothing. It is the best choice for a wide variety of people who work and play outdoors, for whom no other practical and effective personal cooling solution exists. It's perfect for sports, racing, motorcycling, bicycling, construction and industrial uses, and can provide much needed relief for those with heat-intolerant health conditions. No matter how hot and humid it is outside, you’ll be in your own personal "microclimate of COOL!"
NASA pioneered the use of garments employing circulating chilled liquid in the 1960's to keep astronauts cool during space walks. The design and construction of these systems are well documented. Systems of similar construction are currently in use by military personnel in aircraft and armored land vehicles. These systems are very expensive because they use compressor-based refrigeration units to chill the circulating liquid coolant. By substituting ordinary ice to chill the water, the cost and complexity of the system is greatly reduced, making Veskimo Personal Cooling Systems affordable, yet still truly effective.
Veskimo vests cool you down by pumping ice cooled water around plastic tubing sewn onto the vest.

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
