DISCONTINUED - Evaporative Cooling Vest

[ mouse over large image to zoom ]

The ECV100 is an evaporative cooling vest designed to provide passive cooling to persons working in hot climates. The body's natural cooling mechanism is sweating. Worn next to the skin, the ECV100 "sweats" so you don't have to. Designed to make an uncomfortably hot environment more tolerable, the ECV100 is a lightweight, supple, form-fitting vest that provides cooling to the body's core.

Constructed of a vapor-permeable, waterproof, breathable fabric, the ECV100's patented fabric is heatbonded to form a network of channels that hold water. As water inside the vest evaporates, latent heat is removed from the wearer's body core. The vest is filled when connected to a standard hydration system or via the included auxiliary hand pump from an external source (eg. creek, lake, water bottle).
