The EZCooldown Performers vest is specially designed for actors, cosplayers, LARPers, fursuiters, and other costume performers.
This cooling vest provides hours of cooling comfort and prevention against heat stress thanks to four special PCM inserts which provide comfortable cooling relief for up to four hours, even during strenuous activities in high-temperature environments
The EZCooldown Performers vest is made out of thin yet durable polyester mesh which won’t add a thermal insulating layer to your outfit.
The four inside pockets can house four PCM inserts: two on your chest and two on your lower back. Changing the inserts for a set of fresh ones can be done in minutes.
So while you are wearing one set you can keep a second set in your refrigerator or freezer or a bucket of ice water. This way you can stay cool forever!
You can also store activated sets in a cooler or insulated bag. They’ll stay cold for up to 12 hours.
When you need maximum cooling for a short amount of time, choose the blue 15°C (59°F) PCM packs.
When you prefer longevity over absolute cooling ability, go for the yellow 21°C (70°F) PCM packs.
Next to these standard temperatures, we manufacture PCM inserts in other temperatures on request, ranging from 6.5°C (43°F) to 29°C (84°F). Please contact us for details.
As well as different temperatures, we offer PCM packs in two different configurations:
The 8-cell packs are thin and flexible. They’ll fit under virtually any costume but offer less cooling longevity compared to the 4-cell packs.
The 4-cell inserts contain approximately 35% more PCM so they’ll keep you cool for longer.
They’re a bit thicker though, so they’re less suitable under skin tight costumes.
Our inserts use a revolutionary and unique bio-based phase change technology to keep you comfortably cool. Our PCM inserts can be worn directly on the skin without risking frostbite, tissue damage or discomfort.
Our PCM inserts work as the ambient temperature rises, the PCM starts to melt. During the phase transition, the PCM stores energy as latent heat, maintaining a constant temperature until the PCM is completely melted. When the ambient temperature lowers, the PCM will begin to crystallise. As this crystallisation happens the PCM releases the stored latent heat, maintaining a constant temperature until all released
The PCM inserts can be quickly activated in your refrigerator or freezer.
It’s best to not stack the inserts as it will extend their activation time.
The inserts can also be activated in ice water
Our revolutionary PCM is made from bio materials of vegetable origin and USDA certified. Our bio PCM is non-toxic, low-flammable, durable, reuseable, 20% lighter than water and does not produce condensation.
Our vests come in three sizes and can be easily adjusted with the six Velcro straps to fit each individual wearer perfectly. This snug fit makes the vest virtually invisible under costumes, adding only 5.5 cm (2 3/16”) of chest circumference when using the six-cell inserts and 6.2 cm (2 1/2”) when using the four-cell inserts.
Will fit anyone with a height of 150 cm-180 cm (4'11"-5'11") and a chest/belly circumference of 70 cm-140 cm (27"- 55")
Will fit anyone with a height of 170 cm-190 cm (5'7"-6'3") and a chest/belly circumference of 80 cm-150 cm (31"-59")
Will fit anyone with a height of 180 cm-210 cm (5'11"-6'11") and a chest/belly circumference of 90 cm-160 cm (35" – 63")
