UnderCool – Made for you.

It seems that the signature red suit is great up at the North Pole but designed poorly for all of our heated malls and virtual visits.

Do you have problems with concentration and fatigue from the long hours in the suit, sitting under hot lights while the glow from the computer monitor heats you up or the warmth from the Mall? 

Our cooling vest will help you keep you cool, and your concentration. By wearing a ThermApparel UnderCool Cooling Vest, your core temperature will not spike helping you to keep your concentration strong and fatigue low so you can make each visit as memorable as possible for the kids.

It's not about feeling cold, it's about feeling good.

"Santa Claus needs to keep cool... but he doesn't need to add any weight or girth. Here's the solution... a cool vest... but not just any cool vest. This vest by ThermApparel add almost nothing to the cookie zone and weighs less than 2 pounds! ~ Santa Ed"

Santa Rick Rosenthal

"I am truly impressed with the light weight material and design of the ThermApparel cooling vest. Without the ice packs the vest weighs only a couple ounces and folds up to literally fit into one hand. Because the vest is designed with all of the cooling packs in the lower back area, your chest retains its natural look without the bulging seen in other vests. This also allows you to wear your normal sized Santa shirts with no problem, as they fit over this vest and you do not have to purchase larger sized shirts, as you do to accommodate other bulky vests.

I found the product to be a smart and worthwhile investment that every Santa should consider adding to their wardrobe, especially those in warmer climates or for Christmas in July events. ~ Merrily, Santa Rick"

Santa Jim Lockwood

"I love my cooling vest, never have to worry about overheating again. Keeps me cool for up to 4 hours. It’s so slim it’s invisible under my vest or Santa Coat. Keeps me cool during those home visits setting near the fireplace or in the hot sun at the Christmas in July events. My ThermApparel vest will always be part of my Santa Outfit, summer and winter. ~ Santa Jim"

How do ThermApparel Cooling Vests keep me cool under my red Suit?

Our cooling vest is a PCM Cooling Vest, not gel or ice. PCM works better than gel and ice. Why is that and why is it important?

  • When your body is hot your blood vessels open up to allow heat to be released. In other words, you sweat and when air hits your sweat it cools your body down.
  • Ice and Gel Packs cause blood vessels to constrict, preventing cooled blood from reaching your core. Ice is wonderful for cooling down a specific part of your body or bringing down swelling, but it doesn't cool your entire body. There is a reason doctors say 20 min on and 20 min off with ice packs. You need your blood vessels to open back up to allow the blood to start flowing again.
  • ThermApparel PCM Cooling Packs cools the blood without constricting your blood vessels. As your blood flows past the PCM Cooling Packs they cool your blood and your body keeps pumping cool blood through your system keeping your whole body cool.

Will it be comfortable while seated?

YES! Pilots and race car drivers have worn our product with great results. It's so comfortable, most people forget they have it on.

Will it interfere with the sizing of my red suit?

Because our cooling packs are in the lower back area and are worn directly against the skin and its low profile design It won't cause you to need a larger red suit size then you normally wear.


When someone sits on my lap will they know I am wearing it?

Nope. UnderCool has a velcro closure right over your belly button and with it's low profile design it won't add any bulk to your red suit. The cooling packs are in the back so no one will notice.


How long will it keep me cool?

YES! UnderCool will last for 90 min to 3 hours depending on your choice of pack.

SlimCool Packs last 1-2 hours
ExtendedCool Packs last 2-3 hours.

If you need it to last longer the packs can be refrozen and placed back in the vest, or you can purchase additional cooling packs. The cooling packs can be doubled up in the vest to make them last longer, but this will add a little more weight and bulk to the vest on your back.

The unique thing about our packs is their recharging time and ability. the packs can refreeze

  • ice water in 20 min
  • freezer in 40 min
  • fridge in 60 min

The frozen cooling packs can be placed in an insulated cooler and they will stay cold for a few hours until you need to switch.

Don’t just take our word for it...


Santa Ed Taylor - Worldwide Santa Claus Network

Well, good morning! At least it's a good morning for me. I'm a bit deshovled here. Its 5:45am, 15 minuets before 6. I wanted to get this video together real quick because I think it's important and there's still enough time where this can benefit you this season. And I think as Santa Clause's we have two major complaints, right? One is, the season is just not long enough. I think most of us would just love to do this more. I certainly would, and I think a lot of us would. The other major complaint is probobly the heat, right? We get so hot wearing all this equipment. Whether were working in malls, like yesterday I worked in a mall, today I'm working in a mall. Anyway, one of the things to overcome this heat is the use of a cooling vest, right? and I've never used one before until yesterday and I'. going to tell you about it.

I was always concerned with the extra gurth right? I mean I'm a big guy, most of us are, and to put an extra inch or two around us just seemed like more than what I wanted to do. Plus it seemed like it was going to be a hassle and all that. But anyway, I heard from another Santa about this company called ThermApparel. Here's the stuff that they sent me with the vest. And it's really interesting, I'm not going to go into all the details about the company but how they created the vest is a unique story, an interesting story, how they came to create them. But the thing that's really unique about these vests and what I was really attracted to was the fact that these packs don't go all the way around. I guess the disadvantage is that it doesn't cool you all the way around but it has a definate advantage of being much thinner. And so they just go around your back area. In fact I'm gonna kind've model this because I don't have so much room and it's going to be a pain. But as you can see these have shoulder straps. The ice packs are in these little pouches in the back. Then in the front there's a velcro fastener. So it kind've goes in across your belly. I have to tell you when I first saw that I think, is that going to be comfortable? Am I going to feel, you know, contained like wearing a girddle or someting? I dont know, I've never worn a girddle, I don't know what that was like. But the bottom line of it was, it was great! And the fabric is lightweight. In fact, the whole outfit is less than two pounds so that's pretty neat. Then you have these little pouches that you can recharge or re-freeze. I think in the fridge they say it takes an hour or so and in the freezer it takes 30 or 40 minuets. So that part is great. The whole thing lasts, and this is probobly one of the disadvantages, it lasts in the ice packs themselves about two hours. So if you're working in the mall you would need multiple of the packs so that you can have them re-charge. Set in the freezer or the ice box of something so that when you take a break you can change them out. But it's pretty simple to do, I mean to put this thing on and off and everything it's just a matter of velcro fasteners.

So anyway, I was pretty impressed by it. It's this company called ThermApparel. You can see it right there: ThermApparel. And if you want to go check these out further, and I'd really look at it. It's something that added, it arrived over the weekend and I worked fo the first time and the only time yesterday, it arrived over the weekend. I worked in the mall yesterday and I was impressed. It went ok! I can see why the Santa's wear these. In fact the Santa who I relieved at the mall, he's a thin guy but he had a full blown set of cooling vest on with a belly on top of that. But, if you just want something that's a lightweight, kind've small, very small... check this thing out! again, it's ThermApparel.com/santa. You can go there to see what they have and see the prices and all that. They put together a discount code so you get 10% off if you put in the discount code SANTA18. SANTA18. That's a sweet deal. Anyway, if you have any questions, let me know. If you end up buying one of these and using it, please let me know your take on it so that we can educate the santa community. I don't want just one voice to be the only voice, I want to hear the good and bad if your using these or if you're using any other vest and you think of something positive or negative on that, do let me know about that too so that we can give an adequate, an accurate kind've representation about what's out these. Anyway have a great time..."

Santa Val

"Well, hello Santa. This is the best thing you can do for your season. Pick yourself up one of these vests and take care of the heat in the coat. It'll really make it pleasant. And you'll enjoy it. And when you're done, you're not so tired. You'll be able to have time for other things. The suit saved my life. I will be able to get up in the morning and wear the packs and then take it back during break, replenish it, and then go back on the set. Yes, get saved as santa. Please look into it. You'll enjoy em. Ho ho ho. Merry Christmas, everybody."
