cool news for cool people
I have heard February described as the month of night. According to the Washington Post, February is one of the most disliked month of the year.

Now. I. Can. amazing stories from customers.
“My body can’t take the heat; walking becomes impossible and who wants to stay indoors. Summer time means fun in the sun. Thanks to the UnderCool vest, I am able to be out and about. I probably have almost every type of cooling vest out there and none of them are as discrete nor stay as cool as the ThermApparel vest design. I have to avoid any rise in body temperature, so I wear the vest and I can handle a simple workout routine.” ~ Angel Amazon Review
