Iceberg Vest Review
March 14, 2013(Cuyahoga Falls, OH)
The item functions just as advertised. I have taken it on several very hot days, and the vest has never let me down. You must follow the directions for the best results. That means that it functions best when worn under a mesh type jacket to allow maximum air flow to the wet vest to facilitate the cooling process. I am very pleased with this product, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a relatively inexpensive way to keep cool on those hot riding days.
Motorcycle A/C Unit

Used it only once so far, a 93 deg. day in Colorado... Like an A/C unit for motorcycling. 6 AM I soaked it in cold tap water for about ten minutes and wrapped it in a dry bag. At 2 PM in scorching heat I put it on over a t-shirt under a mesh jacket. At that moment it was worth every penny. Ran it through the wash and air dried it... ready to go again!
One size smaller, works ok

Definitely buy one size smaller than you normally would. I ride a bike with a big fairing and windshield and I believe that has an effect on the performance due to less air moving across me.
good for the price

Order one size smaller. If you dont want to ride in hot weather cause of wetting your shirt this is an option.

Vest work great if you can keep it wet. Dries out fast at over 100*.

l bought one for my wife and myself, they do a good job at what they are supposed to do. Have worn them on long rides in the Texas 100 plus heat and they do help at keeping your core temp. down.
Definitely order smaller

Others have said, and I'll echo, that you should definitely order at *least* one size smaller than what you wear in shirts/jackets. I normally wear an XL, got the L, and it's borderline too big. (not big enough to send back, but close.)

I bought this for trip across Canada and the United States. It was a life saver this past week with temperatures hitting record highs in the 90s and low 100's. Getting the vest wet on the road can sometimes be a challenge. Most gas station and restaurant sinks don't have a plug. You need to use the vest to keep the water from draining. It takes quite a few minutes to saturate with water, but it keeps you cool for quite a while. I used it under a mesh jacket and it worked fine.

It takes me about an hour and a half to ride home from work and I have been using it every day since I received it. The vest keeps your core cooler even when it’s humid. I soak it the night before and let it drip for a while then put it in a plastic bag and take it to work. There is a big difference from riding without it, even sitting through stoplights and traffic is better with it than without.

The vest seems to cool as advertised. Better to order a size smaller as they run big. Your shirt will get wet but it will be cooler.
