Ergodyne Adds “Dry” to Evaporative Cooling Vests

Yellow Evaporative Cooling VestOne of the biggest problems with evaporative cooling vests is that they can feel damp. The risk of heat stress isn’t any fun, but wearing a cooling vest that’s soggy and uncomfortable isn’t a good way to spend the workday either.

Ergodyne has solved this big problem with the innovative Chill-Its 6685 Dry Evaporative Cooling Vest. The vest utilizes an inner cooling lining that is contained inside an outer shell, which ensures dry comfort. The inner lining absorbs water and offers a maximum cooling capacity of 59°F (15°C). The vest activates simply by adding approximately 20 ounces of cold water. The water is absorbed by the membrane and starts cooling immediately. The vest has a zipper front closure and stretchable mesh side panels for a comfortable and secure fit, and it comes in a bright yellow color for added visibility and safety.

Ergodyne introduced the Chill-Its 6685 Cooling Vest at a perfect time. The summer construction season is right around the corner, and that means paying attention to heat stress prevention. Keeping workers safe starts with providing them with the right outdoor gear and equipment. This cooling vest is a great start, and it comes from Ergodyne, who has a proven track record of making outstanding personal protective equipment.
