Original Cool Vest - Gray Banox® FR3 with Nontoxic Cooling Packs

The Original Cool Vest - Gray Banox is made with extremely durable FR3 Flame Retardant Banox* fabric** and ideal for those who work in industries such as oil, gas and chemical. 

For added comfort, the eight cooling packs included with this vest feature horizontal cells that conform to your torso as you bend and stretch. The redesigned packs come in two sizes: 10.3 ounces and 7 ounces. For maximum cooling, insert a large and a small cooling pack into each inside pocket of your vest. For less demanding conditions, such as office use, you may lighten the vest by using a single large pack in each pocket.

SIZING: The adjustable-fit Banox cooling vest comes in one size designed to fit most adults. It weighs about 5.5 pounds, including cooling packs, and will fit chest sizes between 29 inches and 52 inches. Extender sets are available for larger adults.

    Posted by George Lopez on 16th Jul 2018

    Live in Las Vegas area and have been dealing with high temperatures (105 to 110) and unusually high humidity ranging from 30 to 60 percent. My vest has proven itself to keep me comfortable. Couldn't work without it. Thank you.

    Core temps are lower

    Posted by Mike on 17th Jul 2017

    The jackets work well. Core temps are lower. Proven by our own thermal scans. Problem is that people are not convinced because they still sweat and their shirts are wet. It is mental as they don't seem as worn out by day's end. The expander straps are difficult for some to use. The should be made to just click in the existing strap buckles.

    Cooing Employees

    Posted by Jim on 11th Aug 2016

    We have tried several different cooling vests and this worked best. We are purchasing a few at a time until all employees have one.
