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

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.

Even though Santa visits are going virtual this year, our Santas still need to keep their cool. 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. 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. read more and click for discount code...
