The Undercool vest has helped me to be able to go out on a hot day for a coffee with my friends, which I was unable to do in the past in summer. Also, the Undercool vest is very lightweight, discreetly fits underneath my tops or dresses. At Easter, this year I was able to attend a family picnic and sit on the beach for a while using the Undercool vest. This has enhanced my mental health and well being to know I can participate on warmer days and not stay in isolation at home.
I have Multiple Sclerosis and suffer from heat intolerance. I need a cooling garment to combat this. I did my research and decided on the UnderCool vest as I didn’t want a cooling garment that was an outer garment because they don’t look very attractive. It has worked well for me and is easy to use.
I would recommend this cooling garment to others as you can wear it underneath your regular clothes and still look fashionable and attractive. It is easy to use and works well for the use it is intended. The UnderCool vest is a discreet design and nobody would know that you are wearing it under your clothes.
RehaCare was easy to deal with and ordering was fuss free. The product is a bit on the expensive side but it was what I wanted. I chose the black colour as it doesn’t show dirt marks or stains as much as lighter colours. Skin tone may be another colour option to consider.
The UnderCool keeps me cool on hot days when I’m out and about and I can wear it under my regular clothes so nobody knows and I don’t look like I’m wearing a cooling product at all.
As someone who has M.S. and who enjoys walking I am often impacted by increased body fatigue and weakness when exercising due to the build up of heat in my body. Therefore, I felt that the vest, with its cooling bricks incorporated into it, might be of help in this regard.
I have found it helpful in keeping my core body temperature down, even on hot days when I really need it, especially for about the first half hour. I usually walk at a moderate to brisk pace and normally for about an hour. Unfortunately, during the second half hour, especially on very hot days by which time a lot of the ice has melted, it tends not to be as helpful but this is to be expected. In general I would recommend the vest to someone, particularly if they are sensitive to heat such as most people with M.S. I feel that most would benefit from wearing the vest, especially if it was to be a moderate half hour walk or a slow walk for about an hour or, for that matter, any other form of exercise in which one is not able to do with the benefit of air-conditioning.
