Are these products
only for motorcyclists?
No, anyone who
is subjected to heat can benefit from our products. Factory and construction
workers, bus drivers, welders, warehouse staff, or anyone else who is warmer
than they want to be.
cooling process: When water changes from a liquid to a gas, energy is consumed
and a cooling effect is achieved through evaporation. Polymers within our
products absorb water, which then evaporates along with your body heat.
Our evaporative products can remain hydrated, and effective, for hours
or days, depending on conditions. The products are recharged just by adding
water. Evaporative cooling products are good for wearing on their own or
under textile or perforated/ventilated protective clothing. Effectiveness
can be reduced by high humidity conditions.
vs Evaporative cooling.
The Phase Change
cooling process: Cooling energy is created from a unique Phase Change Material
(PCM) mechanically sealed in durable inserts. Our PCM Cooling Products
deliver a constant temperature of 58F/14C for 2-3 hours. The Phase Change
material can be recharged in 20 to 30 minutes by placing in ice water,
cooler, or freezer. Phase change products can be worn on their own or under
leather or non-ventilated jackets. Phase Change products are excellent
in environments of high humidity or limited airflow.
Vests will remain hydrated for several days. How long you feel the cooling
effects depends on the conditions. Soaking the vest in water during a rest or
fuel break can rejuvenate it in just a minute or less. Naturally,
exposure to high winds will cause the water within the vest to evaporate
much quicker. High humidity can also lessen the cooling effect.
How long will
the Vests cool my body?
Our products can
be worn alone, or under protective clothing. When riding with a protective
jacket or suit, the vests should be worn under the jacket. Allowing some
air to enter the jacket through the sleeves and vents will enhance the
cooling effects of the evaporative vests. Without protective clothing I
recommend that a loose fitting shirt be worn over the vest when riding,
to minimize the dehydration of the vest. The Phase Change vests maintains
its 58 degree temperature longer when protected from the wind and sun.
dehydrate the evaporative vests by hanging in open air and then hand wash.
The vest may take several days to completely dehydrate. Hand wash and rinse
quickly using only mild soap. Do not use harsh detergents. The Phase Change
vests can be washed normally after removing the phase change inserts.
How should I
wear the vest?
vests may be hydrated and stored temporarily in a closed bag for those
times when you do not need it quite yet, and the bag is handy for a quick
recharge. After the ride, hang in open air until completely dry.
How about storage,
on and off the bike?
Store by hanging
in open air until completely dry. Do not store in a closed container or
plastic bag, as these may cause mildew. Do not spill salt water, gasoline,
diesel fuel, alcohol, or other chemicals on the vest. The Sport vest can
be placed in Freezer or ice-water. Do NOT freeze the MiraCool products
or place them in contact with ice.
