Ergodyne Has Finally Made a Cooling Vest That Stays Dry

Yellow Evaporative Cooling VestOne very big problem with evaporative cooling vests is that they can feel damp. The risk of heat stress isn’t any fun, but wearing a cooling vest that’s not comfortable isn’t a good way to spend the workday either.

Ergodyne has solved this large problem with the innovative Chill-Its 6685 Dry Evaporative Cooling Vest. The vest has an inner cooling lining that’s contained inside an outer shell, which ensures dry comfort. The inner membrane absorbs water and offers a maximum cooling capacity of 59°F (15°C). The vest is activated by adding 20 ounces of cold water. The water is absorbed by the membrane and begins cooling immediately. The vest has a zipper front closure and stretchable mesh side panels for a comfortable and secure fit, and it comes in a bright yellow color for added safety.

The Chill-Its 6685 Cooling Vest was unveiled at a perfect time. The summer construction season is  almost here, and that means heat stress prevention. Keeping workers safe starts with outfitting them with the right outdoor gear and equipment. This cooling vest is a great start, and it comes from Ergodyne, who has a proven track record of making outstanding PPE.

See how the vest works.
