Using the vest to cool the body’s core temperature provides a big advantage to an athlete. Approximately 75% of energy expended by the human body is needed to maintain normal body temperature and only 25% of energy is used to fire our muscles and electrify the brain.
Features: Constructed from an advanced wicking fabric with front and back, side loading pouches which hold either Gel packs or Phase Change cooling packs. Side zipper design allows for simplicity of allowing all cooling packs pouches to be uniform in size. Patented Hyper Vest® design keeps cooling packs in place during activity such as a warm up for an event, during training or an event, or during recovery.
Precooling: Precooling an athlete’s core temperature reduces the demands on the body to cool its own core and preserves muscle energy for training or competition. An endurance athlete’s performance can improve up to 21% according to a Nike study. The Hyper Vest COOL is a convenient and inexpensive solution for other cooling vest applications such as industrial safety, motorcycling, emergency response, military, construction workers, landscapers, rehabilitation, therapy for multiple sclerosis and other conditions like epilepsy, and even under mascot costumes.
Training: The Hyper Vest COOL incorporates the same compression characteristics as the Hyper Vest PRO, allowing the vest to be used while training or in a scrimmage.
Recovery: It is a widely held practice to ice athlete’s bodies after intense training or games. By chilling the body, swelling and inflammation is reduced. The Hyper Vest Cool is a quick way to get a lot of surface area covered with cooling packs while also allowing the user the freedom of movement, rather than be strapped down with ice or in an ice bath.
Research: Ice vests or precooling were in wide use in the Bejing Olympics with Nike providing a precool vest for U.S. athletes and UK Sport providing an ice vest solution for its athletes.

Next in a line of products from the inspired innovation of Hyper Wear, the Hyper Vest COOL is very cool. The one piece vest, with an innovative and stylish side zipper, is designed to cool the body’s core temperature and the lower heart rate using up to eight uniform size gel or phase change cooling packs that can easily be inserted.
Select the Gel packs for deep low temperature cooling at 32 degrees for up to an hour. The Hyper Vest COOL also employs the patented control system of the Hyper Vest® PRO weighted vest, allowing you to engage in movement while wearing the Hyper Vest COOL since the cooling packs are held in place tightly but comfortably.
The Hyper Vest COOL comes in Small, Medium, and Large. You can also purchase a booster set of six Gel packs or Phase Change separately.
