REV'IT! Liquid Cooling Vest
Great fit. Keeps you cool
I like how this fits. It is snug against you which helps to keep you cool. I have used other loose fitting cool vests and they don't keep you cool. It is light weight as well.

It will save you from the heat!
I ride ALL summer and there are some days that the temperature is in the double digits. It's not rare to have my ambient temperature gauge hit 105…and…on black asphalt it has hit 110. I wear the jacket under an AIRWAVE JACKET and over my T shirt. It will last about two hours that way. If you expose it to full force wind it will go dry in less time…for sure. Riding long distances in killer heat is much easier with this jacket.

Better than I thought
I've tried several summer products for the central California Summers but this is my favorite so far. The cooling properties are excellent, it doesn't have to soak for a long time and I stay surprisingly dry. The fit seems true to size. I'm built like a fire plug so an XL fit me well

Was comfortable but felt wet and clammy.
The vest worked and kept me cooler than I would have been without it; however, I realized that you either wear nothing under it or a wicking layer under it. I had a cotton t-shirt on the first time I wore it and it was soaked within 5 minutes of donning the vest. Wearing the vest gives a cool but wet and clammy feel. Maybe that is normal. This is the first cooling product that I have owned.

I ordered an XL for my husband and when it arrived, it was way TOO SMALL for him. I ended up keeping it for me (I'm 5'7 and 135 pounds). I do like the zipper on one side which makes it easy to slip on over your head. It isn't bulky when soaked with water and it did a decent job of keeping me cool. I will have to test it out during extremely hot weather (it was only upper 80's when I wore it). I don't see how the cooling effects could last for hours without "refreshing it."

Does a pretty good job
From my past experience with Rev'it, I knew their size chart was inaccurate. I am 5'9" 188 lbs and ordered an XL. The fit felt initially a bit tight, but now it feels perfect.
The vest does a great job of cooling especially when moving. If at a standstill, it can still get a bit warm, but still cooler than compared to not having the vest on.
After i take the vest off, my shirt is a bit damp from the water in the vest, but not as bad as I thought it would be.
Hard to comment on durability since I just got it, but it seems like it will last.

Let the cooling begin !!
Wore the vest for the for the first time to play golf in 95 degree weather. Worked like a charm. I'd say it kept me at
least 25 degrees cooler, which translated into a great game of golf !! excellent product ! you will be amazed. All my playing partners want one now...

Simply brilliant. First, my compliments to Revzilla. I ordered this product last Monday evening and received it (with their free standard shipping) on Friday morning of the same week. Thanks guys! I was dreading the 100+ Degree temps and knowing this was in the mail.
As for the product....I am completely impressed. It was my first wear today. 25 miles at 100+ Degrees and 75mph = Convection Oven! I literally ran this under the sink for a few minutes before leaving work and dawned the vest under my jacket for the ride home. It felt fantastic. I cannot wait to see how it performs on longer rides. I also am going to try and get a meat thermometer to place between my skin and the vest to see what my skin temps are at while the outside temp is greater than 100 (I will post new reviews after I have ran these scenarios). Rev'It.....make this as a pull over short sleeve t-shirt and a balaclava or skull cap to wear under my helmet and I am into you guys for another couple $100. Well worth the investment.
The one thing that I would add to this vest (not change) is a Velcro or Button Closure at the top of the zipper. It tends to fall on me because of the stretch in the material. Other than that.....perfect.
If you ride anywhere where the Temps skyrocket, do yourself a favor and invest the cash....you will not be disappointed.
