4 Must-Have Cooling Vests This Summer!

4 Must-Have Cooling Vests This Summer!
Kevin Cleary

Health Products for You can help you find the perfect cooling vest to fit your lifestyle.

Summer heat can be detrimental to your health if you are not careful. The heat during the summer can not only cause you to sweat and feel sticky, but it can lead to potentially life-threatening issues. For those who work outside in the elements (construction or utility workers) or those suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS) hot weather can be dangerous.

As the heat index rises our body’s ability to cool itself can become compromised or even negated. HPFY can help keep you cool and safe with a cooling vest that can cool down your core and match your lifestyle.

Summer Heat Issues

As the mercury climbs during the summer, staying cool and comfortable can become difficult. The summer heat can cause a plethora of health issues that can range from inconvenient to actually life-threatening. Signs of heat distress can include everything from excessive sweating, elevated body temperature, confusion, and even nausea. Some of these issues and treatments include:

  • Heatstroke: Requires immediate medical attention. Call 911 and immediately cool with cold water/ice and circulate air to speed cooling.
  • Dehydration: Offer water or fluids with electrolytes, such as sports drinks, and seek medical attention if symptoms persist.
  • Heat exhaustion: Remove the affected person away from the sun, provide liquid, and cool them down with a cold compress.
  • Muscle/heat cramps: Drink water or a snack/sports drink that replaces electrolytes every 15 minutes.
  • Heat Syncope: Sit/lie down in a cool place and slowly drink water, clear juice, or sports drinks.
  • Sunburn: Seek shade first and then apply ice packs to the area. Aloe vera cream and moisturizers for your skin and keep the burn clean.

Identifying the symptoms and their related issues is important for early intervention and treatment. By understanding how heat-related illnesses affect our bodies, we can quickly remove ourselves from situations that can cause us harm.

Cool Yourself with a Cooling Vest

Being able to cool the core of your body or keep it from getting overheated in the first place can be critically important. The use of cooling vest systems is a great way to reduce the risk of heat-related illness. We have a variety of cooling vests for men and women.

Staying cool in the heat is more than just being comfortable. The heat can stress our bodies to the point where immediate medical attention is needed.

Don’t dismiss symptoms of distress, and be proactive when going into the heat. Drink cool water before you are thirsty, and avoid alcohol and drinks with high levels of caffeine. If you feel overheated, take a break before it’s too late!
