    My wife and I bought one before our trip from California to Texas in July of 2011. The average temperature from Cal.to Texas was 107. The second day of our trip was almost unbearable so we donned our vest and it really worked well. Since we were riding about 550 miles a day, we had to soak them in gas station restrooms. Got allot of funny looks from people because it looked like we peed our pants but I'll take the looks. I was comfortable. I soaked it every time we stopped for gas otherwise the water in the vest would get hot and cause me to feel like it was humid.

    I live in Las Vegas where it gets really hot in the summer. I bought my cooling vest on sale at Cycle Gear, had them wet it for me, and rode home in it. I wear it with a textile air flow jacket; my cotton t-shirt gets a little damp, but not wet. The vest works good up to around 100 degrees, and especially if the humiditiy is low since it works by evaporative cooling. But in Vegas, when its 110 and you are stuck in traffic with no air flow, it doesnt do much. I'd still recommend it for most hot places, but you really can't expect an evaporative jacket to replace air conditioning when it is super hot outside.

    Comments about Cooling Vest:

    On July 4th, I rode 308 miles, from San Jose, to Merced, to Oakdale, to Turlock, to home. The temperatures were up to 107* in the Central Valley. Using my Cool Vest along with my Bilt Blaze Mesh Jacket, I was cool and comfortable riding on the Freeways. However, in Town, in Stop & Go Traffic, I couldn't use the vest or the Mesh Jacket, it was too Hot! you need Air Flowing through to keep you cool, without the Air, I began to boil.
    (NOTE: I ride a Goldwing, which has wind protection, so the vest would work better with Bikes with No Fairings around Town).
    I couldn't have made the trip without my Cool Vest or my Mesh Jacket, it is a must to have for long distance riding on the Freeways!

      Comments about Cooling Vest:

      This item works best when paired with a mesh style textile jacket. Mine fits snug but not tight to aid in cooling. It makes it feel at least 10-15 degrees cooler while riding.

      Comments about BILT Cooling Vest:

      I bought this cooling vest after going on a day long ride in 108 degree temps. We road all day and at the heat of the day I began expriencing nausea and lightheadedness. The beginning stages of heat exhaustion. So, I went right out and bought my own vest. WOW, it is amazing. cooled me off in a matter of minutes and lasted for at least 45 minutes to an hour. AMAZING!
