Fieldsheer Iceberg Cooling Vests work by incorporating a moisture absorbing gel that is sandwiched between the layers of fabric. To activate this gel, soak the vest in cold water for 15-20 minutes. You will know the vest is ready to use once the gel inside the fabric has swelled up and absorbed some water. Throw on the vest and it will slowly evaporate throughout the ride, keeping you nice and cool (and, yes, you will get slightly wet). These are most effective in dry (not humid) conditions. Humidity tends to slow down the evaporative process, which can leave you hot and wet.

Highly recommend this vest to anyone who rides in hot weather. I don't handle the heat well; but this product made it possible to keep on riding I was able to wear my mesh jacket for protection with the vest underneath and kept cool in 95 temperatures in Florida.
it's an ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE for any rider that hits warm weather, and it's a steal at this price!
I would buy this product if I ride above 90 much. I was wearing a mesh jacket over it, and I assume that you need a mesh jacket or a jacket with a very effective vent system for this to work well. After a while, it does need to be re-soaked or it just feels heavy with no benefit. Sizing was a bit big, but it still worked well.

Pros: Good construction and fit
Cons: Must be in wind stream to be effective
I ride a 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer with a Madstad windscreen. My shoulders are the only part of my torso exposed directly to wind stream when riding. My shoulders stayed cool but the rest of my torso not so much. Eventually felt like I had a warm, wet towel wrapped around me.
