How do the Arctic Heat products work?

Arctic Heat Products contain a special, non-toxic, completely biodegradable viscose gel that absorbs water. Importantly, this gel retains it's temperature for long periods. University tests indicate that the gel keeps it's temperature for up to 3 times longer than similar products.

With Arctic Heat you can have the product at whatever temperature you desire.

What can the products be used for?

Depending on the specific product, Arctic Heat products can be used for a variety of reasons. Arctic Heat vests can be used for both cooling and warming! They are a great benefit for improving athletic performance, reasing productivity in the workplace, assisting in the quality of life of people with medical conditions affected by heat and reducing the dangers of heat stress.

Arctic Heat products can be used for muscle strains, tears or pain that require the application of a cold or hot pack.

Will the cooling vest make my clothes wet?

No it can be used dry, clothes will not get wet or damp. The Arctic Heat cooling vest can be used in either a wet or dry manner. To use dry, activate the cooling vest and then hang to dry, removing any moisture. Then you can chill or freeze the vest. Take it out of the fridge or freezer and wear it over or under clothes. This is the most common way of using the cooling vest.  The inner material of the cooling vest is a special moisture wicking material which also helps to keep the user cool and dry.

The cool vest can also be dunked in ice water for a couple of minutes and gently wrung out to remove excess water and worn, typically used in this manner by sports people after an event, and normally when the cool vest has lost its initial coolness. Used in this method clothes may get a little damp, but generally the athlete is sweaty anyway.

Do you have different styles for men and women? 

No. We use the same unisex style. Available in white or blue. Our children's cooling vests are a slightly different design with adjustable shoulder and sides to allow room for growth.


Where do I measure to get the correct size?

Take your chest or bust measurement. The cooling vest needs to be a firm fit for optimal cooling and to stop the cool vest moving about during exercise.

Are there cooling sections on the back of the cooling vest?

Yes, but the back of the Arctic Heat cool vest contains only 3 panels filled with gel to keep cold away from kidney area. (There are 4 cooling sections on the front).

Do the cooling vests give the user a performance advantage?

Many researchers have documented the use of cooling vests in conserving fluid, which would have otherwise been lost in sweat. Increasing the temperature gradient between the users core temperature and their skin temperature has the effect of reducing sweating - this then delays the onset of dehydration and performance decrement.

Of course, the better the cooling product retains the cold, greater the benefit for the user. With Arctic Heat's scientifically proven properties users can maximise the cooling advantages.

How long will the product stay at the temperature I want?

How long Arctic Heat products stay at the temperature obtained depends on a variety of factors. The 2 biggest variants are body temperature and the outside temperature.
