    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 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!

      Simply soak and wear with a mesh jacket and you are set even at 100F

        Comments about BILT Cooling Vest:

        Was great in the HOT weather. Definitely kept us cooled off. We used them (we bought two for me and my passenger) in 90 to 105 heat and when going through the deserts. We soaked them and they lasted a fair amount of time. Then soaked them again. They do say to blot them and I am guessing so they don't drip. Water did run down my back and make my butt wet sometimes but maybe I didn't blot it well enough and while I was out re-wetting it. But usually when it was that HOT I didn't mind.

          My wife and I recently wore these cooling vests on a long ride in 100 degree weather. If worn with a mesh jacket they work great. The only con is they will get your pants wet. I would not ride in hot weather without it though. I do recommend it.
