Helping Keep You Cool This Summer With Our Hands On Reviews Of the Best Motorcycle Cooling Vests
Most people think the only way to stay cool while riding during the summer is a well ventilated motorcycle jacket. For anybody who lives in really warm summer weather like us, we know that a jacket with vents can only do so much. Don’t sweat it (yes, i know), we’re here to tell you about the secret, little known world of motorcycle cooling vests.
Cooling vests are a pretty simple concept. Basically, evaporative cooling vests soak up water and then release it over time to help carry away excess body heat. Evaporative cooling is the same way our bodies work so it works really well. The hot air causes the water stored in the vests to evaporate, thereby drawing heat away from you body and cooling you down.
