What is a good sports cooling vest?
Are you an avid athlete and would like to keep exercising even during the hot summer days? Then wearing a cooling vest is ideally suited. What is a good sports cooling vest? And how exactly does such a cooling vest work?
Want to order a cooling vest that is suitable for sports? Then order via our external webshop 'coolingvests.nu', fully equipped with our range of cooling products, the cooling vest 'Bodycool basic' from Inuteq.
What types of cooling vests are there?
We distinguish three types cooling vests. Not all of them are suitable as sports cooling vest. Other situations, such as working in very hot conditions where it is mandatory to wear workwear over the cooling vest, mean that a different type of cooling vest is more appropriate.
The three types of cooling vests are:
- Cooling vests with evaporation technology
- Cooling vests with cooling elements
- Cooling vests with immersion technology
The cooling vest with cooling elements is the only cooling vest where (work) clothes over the vest can be worn.
Both the other two types of cooling vests work by evaporation, so it is not possible to wear clothing over the cooling vest.
Which cooling vest is a suitable sports cooling vest?
During exercise, there is no need to wear clothing over the cooling vest. In theory, why both the cooling vest with the evaporation technique and the cooling vest with immersion technique would be suitable.
In practice, however, we recommend the cooling vest with immersion technology. This is because this cooling vest has the least weight and moves most flexibly with the body.

Points of attention during use
It is important to have a well-fitting cooling vest. The more space there is between the body and the vest, the less effect the cooling effect will have. In practice, we therefore often see that the cooling vest is ordered one size smaller than the clothing size.
Another important consideration is drying the cooling vest after it has been washed in the washing machine. The cooling vest should not be tumble-dried. Therefore, always use a clothes hanger and hang the cardigan (in the sun, for example).
