The Oro Sports Team

LUANNE DIBERNARDO, Co-founder + CEO (2nd from left)

Luanne doesn't play sports, but if she did, she would be an Olympic Sprinter.

Oro Sports co-founder and CEO, Luanne DiBernardo, started her cooling journey in 2008 with her brother Van DiBernardo, a former DKNY designer with heat intolerance due to a chronic condition. The siblings focused their "lifestyled" cooling garments for people with heat intolerance due to a chronic condition, operating as Coolure from 2010 through 2019.  

It was then that Tom Burns, the engineer and founding CEO of QSG Technologies, where every cooling vest is constructed, made Luanne an offer she couldn't refuse: Oro Sports.  

MATTHEW COLPOYS, President and COO (far left)

Matt played baseball, basketball, and football -- but it's hockey that has dominated for 50+ years. Three days a week, Matt joins his team on the ice.  

Matt joined Oro Sports in 2021 as President and COO. He has held leadership and founder roles in the pharmaceutical and med-tech space. Matt is leading Oro Sports to its position as the #1 innovative, go-to brand in cooling wearables. 

TOM BURNS, Co-founder and VP Manufacturing (far right)

Tom is a lifelong rugby player and wrestling coach who starts his mornings with Crossfit at Absolute Performance and Kickboxing at Ray Casal's.  

Tom Burns has a Masters in Mechanical Engineering, an undergrad in Physics, and is a serial entrepreneur. QSG Technologies, the ISO Certified factory he has owned and operated since 2006, is responsible for the manufacture of every cooling vest since 2013. A lifelong athlete, Tom understands how heat can challenge mental and physical endurance.

AMANDA BURNS, Social Media + Content Creator (3rd from left)

Amanda played Division 1 soccer at West Virginia University. 

Amanda graduated with a degree in Management Information Systems from WVU, and has joined the Oro Sports team to take on social media. Her triple-threat skills -- photography, design, and athleticism -- will tell our story with product, users, trials, and sports science. 

THE DYNAMICS of this team puts R&D, manufacturing, trials, customer service, and branding under one roof. This advantage finds Oro Sports ahead of the curve in product develpment, quality assurance, and customer experience.

Cooling Gloves
Charlie Stapleton
Awesome products!!!

I purchased the gloves because of multiple carpal tunnel surgeries. I especially use them after playing golf and garden work. The gloves are doing what I expected them to do. Great product.

Unbelievable product.

After having a heat stroke 18 years ago I have been extremely susceptible to heat illness. I played four days of golf in Texas with 95 to 100 degrees and the cooling vest and head bands made me feel the best in the heat since before my heat stroke! Great products and service

Keeping Cool on the Golf Course

If heat and humidity is keeping you away from your favorite round of golf consider trying the Oro Vestito to keep you cool. My husband who suffers from the heat is able to keep cool with it in 90 degree weather. In addition the Vestito vest does not inhibit his golf swing in any way. A suggestion would be to purchase two cooling packs as one’s cooling effect lasts for approximately nine holes. A wonderful invention!!

Cool Cuffs Really Work

I really like the redesigned cool cuffs. The fabric has a nice stretch and the cool packs stay securely inside the cuff pocket while wearing. I wore them last week on a very hot day as I gardened outside. The frozen packs lasted about an hour before the cooling effect rapidly decreased. That was perfect for me, as I hadn't planned on gardening for more than an hour anyway. Since the cuffs come with an extra set of cooling packs, I could have easily popped a new frozen set in and continued working. I threw them in the washer and let them air dry to ensure the elastic component of the fabric would not be damaged by heat drying. They came out like new.

I give these a five-star rating and I think buyers will love the improved design. The only negative for me is that I have very small wrists (5 1/4"). While the cuffs were not loose and made good contact with my skin, the fit was more snug when I first put them on. As the cool packs began to melt, the cuffs felt just a little bit looser, but they still maintained their cooling effect.

Thank you Oro for your quality products!

So Happy To Have Found This!

I suffer from a condition that causes me to overheat. This cooling vest is a lifesaver. I wore it to the State Fair and did not overheat once, even when in direct sunlight, with an outdoor temp of 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Now if only I could sleep in it!
