I was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and need to keep my core cool to reduce MS attacks and severity. I live in Southern California where it gets really hot and summer temps can be brutal. I also live on a ranch and the animals must be taken care of regardless of how hot it is. I looked at cheaper vests but all they were was material soaked in water and put on for an evaporative effect. Not any better than taking off my t shirt and getting it wet on the wash rack at the barn and putting it on. I found this and decided to try it since it had actual frozen material held close to the body. We have had 90+ degree temps the last two days with 35-60 % humidity so a pretty good test environment. I had frozen the gel packs and inserted into the vest and put on with my t shirt underneath to go out and feed and water the animals. I did stay much cooler than without the vest and wasn’t sweating up a storm or getting dizzy in the heat. But after 1 hour the gel packs were thawing out about half way, but still keeping me cool. When I returned to the house I just stuck the whole vest in the chest freezer so I can easily grab it before going out knowing it will be good to go. If you need cooling power for more than a couple of hours you will need additional gel packs to swap out. This will work for MS patients for 2 hrs or less. If you want to do outside activities for longer you need cooling gel inserts front and back. So for riding and driving the mules and donkeys I bought a Glacier Tech vest that holds frozen cooling gel packets both front and back and will last up to 4 hrs no problem. It is also heavier and bulkier and of course costs more. MS patient’s internal thermometer is broken and we are always hot and overheat easily. So we must have a way to keep cool outside or we can’t go outside. This vest would be great for gardening, walks, short errand runs etc for MS patients as well as normal people looking for some heat relief. If you need to use it on the job outside buy several gel cooling packs to swap out throughout the day. I found the gel packs expand much more easily in warm water in the sink, submerged under a dinner plate for a couple hours. All expanded no problem.
I ordered this on advice from others with MS to see if it would help with my heat intolerance. It helped greatly. I used it for mowing our lawn on an upper 80's day.
I mowed for about an hour and the cooling packs were still more than 1/2 frozen and I was still comfortable. It wore nicely and was not restrictive at all.
Definitely would recommend this.
I have MS and heat exacerbates my symptoms. While I initially purchased this vest to help keep cool while exercising outside during the summer, it proved invaluable to helping keep cool during the 'heat dome' event that his the west coast during the end of June, both when I was inside or outside!
Its minimal size and shape allows you to move freely when wearing it (even when wearing a back- or water-pack over top), but the full back ice pack still keeps you cool.
I highly recommend it for those looking for a lightweight and unobstructive way to keep cool in the heat.
Every summer I bale hay on my farm. This summer has been especially hot. I ordered an Oro vest and headbands in February and I am soooo glad I did. Here in July I spend 4 days in the hay fields with temperatures over 90 degrees. I was wearing the vest & headbands, changing the ice packs out every couple hours. I was amazed how well they helped to keep me from overheating as in past years. I can highly recommend the Oro products. I will be using these products under my Equestrian show jackets during our August show series as well. Thank you for the ingenious styling and fit of your product. They are life savers in the summer heat.
My 10 year old son has an autoimmune disorder and heat causes a major flare up. We've tried every cooling vest on the market and none were right for kids: too big, too bulky, not cool enough. The Vestino hits the mark -- and looks cool!
