FAQ About Men's Cooling Vests
Getting to Know Your Vest


How Do Glacier Tek Cooling Vests Work?

Can the Cooling Packs be Replaced?

The cYes, the cooling packs used in Glacier Tek Vests are modular and replaceable.
You can swap out cooling packs as needed at anytime.


Are Glacier Tek Vests Suitable for Use in All Climates?

How Long do the Cooling Effects Last?

The duration of standard cooling packs when tested in a stable environment is approximately 2.5 hours.
External temperatures combined with individual exertion will then affect the longevity of that vest, typical users still see several hours of cooling.
HVAC and more extreme environments can expect a turnaround closer to 90 minutes - 
cooling packs can be recharged in 30 minutes when placed in ice water, allowing users to overcome even the most severe environments by rotating cooling packs.
