Yesterday it was about 92 on the track if not hotter, wore this thing, it was incredible. Must of lowered my core temp a lot - at least very noticeable. It turned a very hot and potentially short day into an all-day affair.
Really good stuff - recommended! Will post pics later after dumping the camera.
We are looking forward to reading your review MX Editor.
To answer a few questions above:
- Our vests run true to your normal shirt size. A complete size chart can be found on our website www.techniche-intl.com
The current style that MX Editor is testing does not contain our Phase Change Cooling Packs. This vest you simply soak in water for 1-2 minuets and then wear under your jersey during the moto. If you are looking for Phase Change Cooling look into our Hybrid Elite #4531

We state our HyperKewl Cooling products will last 5-10 hours but of course this depends on a lot of outside factors. Since our HyperKewl vests work on evaporation and airflow, during a moto you can expect 1-2 hours of cooling. The more airflow the better or cooler you will feel.
yes you are correct Leipheimer is one of the many high profile athletes that train with our vest.
The 811 Foundation is selling our #6531 HyperKewl Evaporative Cooling Ultra Sport Vest
With the summer ride season upon us, feel free to ask me any questions!
