Durable FR3-Rated Material
Banox vests are designed to weather tough jobs and hazardous conditions, with FR3-rated banox fabric that improves resistance to wear, tear, and open flames. Buckles replace the standard velcro side straps to further reduce additional fire-hazard risks. All Banox vests include a tag that verifies their FR-3 rating.
Easy to Clean
GlacierPacks can be hand-washed with warm water and dish soap. If desired, isopropyl alcohol may be used for disinfection. Rinse and towel dry before use.
Banox vests can be washed by hand and line-dried, or by machine on a delicate wash cycle with a tumble dry.

Some environments are too extreme or dangerous to simply grin and bear them, but are unavoidable all the same. When a tough job needs to be done regardless of its difficult nature, protect yourself and prepare to be cool with the Banox vest from Glacier Tek.
The Banox vest is made with extremely durable (FR3) Flame Retardant Banox* fabric, protecting the outside of the vest from various types of environmental damage. To maximize both flexibility and effect of the vest set, the cooling packs included with this vest feature horizontal cells that conform to your torso as you bend and stretch. Lastly, this design includes a heavy-duty front zipper for easy application & removal, but also features quick-release buckles at the sides to replace the velcro side-straps that are more vulnerable to heat damage.
All of the Banox vest's features make it ideal for mitigating the hazardous work environments typically seen in oil, gas, chemical, and manufacturing industries. Those working on roofs, in attics, and throughout other difficult locations that feature small spaces or sharp hazards also benefit regularly from the use of durable Banox vests!

The vest allows me to spend time outdoors during hot weather. My MS symptoms get really bad during hot weather. The vest allows me to spend time outdoors. Love it.
Wore vest on 90 degree day working outside and it kept me nice and cool. Also the ice packs freeze up quickly when needed. Wish the straps pulled the vest tighter to body. Being smaller frame, it would be nice to have shorter straps so I can pull the vest closer to my body and feel the ice more. Great vest and will wear often!
Have not used it. Has not been hot enough. Much rain last week, this week, and into next week.
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.
This vest has enabled my Dad, who has problems with heat, to re-enter the outdoors! Thanks! Order and delivery were ahead of industry standard!
