"What do I need to decide before ordering one of these?" Here are four things to decide before ordering your ThermApparel Cooling Vest.
Why is size so important? Easy answer, the size determines how it works. With 7 sizes XXS - XXL, ThermApparel Cooling Vests are made to fit a wide variety of body shapes and sizes, because "one size fits all" really isn't true. UnderCool needs to fit your body like a glove to give you the best cooling support.
If the vest is too big, the cooling packs seem "floppy" or the vest doesn't seem tight, you won't get the optimum cooling, the cooling packs won't feel cool and they won't last as long. The cooling packs work by direct and FIRM contact to the body.
ThermApparel Cooling Vests don't fit like a standard shirt. They wrap around you in a firm but comfortable way to transfer the cooling to your core.
Most of us buy shirts that fit in the shoulders, neck, and hip area. UnderCool fits at your natural waist, this is the area below your ribcage but above your belly button. Think of how a cumberbund or corset fits.
Once you have your natural waist measurement look at the sizing chart to find your size. If you are in between two sizes go with the smaller size.
For men the rule of thumb is one size smaller than your t-shirt size.
For women the sizing doesn't have anything to do with your bust or hip size. You will wear 1-2 sizes smaller than you normally do.
Don't worry if you need help with sizing, call us 855-232-7233, or you have 60 days from date of purchase to exchange it for a different size.
2. COLOR: BLACK OR WHITE?
Can't decide? Because it is an undergarment, ask yourself, "what do I wear more of? Dark or light clothes?
- If your wardrobe is mostly dark clothing order a black vest.
- If your wardrobe is mostly light clothing order a white vest.
- If your wardrobe is both dark and light clothing order an Adventure Bundle, it comes with an option for a black and white vest.
One common question: Is the white vest cooler? White will reflect more sun if the white vest is the outside layer. However ThermApparel Cooling Vests are designed to be worn under your clothing directly against the skin, so the color doesn't matter in regards to heat reflection. If you intend to wear your ThermApparel Cooling Vest on the outside or you clothing, please consider heat reflection and go with what works best for your area.
3. COOLING PACKS
We now have 2 cooling pack choices. It's simple. One lasts longer than the other. SlimCool Packs last 1-2 hours of oh-so-sweet cooling time and ExtendedCool packs last 2-3 hours of oh-so-sweet cooling time. Think about what activities you intend to use your ThermApparel Cooing Vest for and how long it takes to complete the activity. If you are going for a short walk use the SlimCool Paks, if you are playing a Golf, go for the ExtendedCool Packs
Examples of choices.
- I am going to be sitting most of the time. Slim Cool
- I am doing hard aerobic workouts. Extended Cool
- I go for a short walk each day. SlimCool
- I am going to hike for the morning. Extended cool
What is the difference other than time? The ExtendedCool packs weigh a small amount more.
The Vest with 4 SlimCool Cooling Packs weighs 1.3 lbs
The Vest with 4 ExtendedCool Cooling Packs weighs 1.9 lbs.
