As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

Stay cool all summer long with the HyperKewl Cooling Vest!  A combination of unique fabrics creates a water management system to keep you cool regardless of temperature. The unique HyperKewl fabric absorbs, stores, and releases water within the multi-layered material. Water is "released" through evaporation, energy is consumed, and a chill effect is created. The HyperKewl fabric actually cools the body exactly the same way the body cools itself, through evaporation.

To activate the evaporative cooling vest, simply submerge the item in water for 1-2 minutes allowing the HyperKewl fabric to absorb the water. Gently squeeze out any excess water, wipe dry and the vest is ready to wear. The vest will remain activated for hours and can be re-hydrated by following these simple steps. The vest is meant to be worn over clothing and will feel damp to the touch.  Hand wash only.

    HyperKewl Cooling Vest is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! I purchased this vest right before a two-day horsemanship clinic where the temperatures were in the upper 90s. We were in the baking sun for 6 hours per day with no shade whatsoever, and this vest was a lifesaver. I did have to re-wet it during our lunch breaks each day (while I also hosed my horse down), but it succeeded in keeping my body temperature considerably cooler than my fellow Clinic students. I kind of felt bad that I was the only one that had one because I got so many questions about it. I am looking forward to next summer, and many more rides with this terrific vest! In the winter, I use it as an additional layer under my heavier jacket and it works great because it is lightweight and not bulky. .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful product I over heat easily in the summer so I decided to try this vest this year. I won't say it makes 90* feel like 75*, but I think it does help keep my body temp down enough that I don't get feeling so weak and shaky. It works best on hot but not extremely humid days after soaking it and letting it sit in a fridge or ice chest while I tack up. Muggy mornings/days, it is not as effective, though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! I was pleasantly surprised that even in 100 degrees this vest kept me cooler than I would have been otherwise. The sizing is a little bulky, would prefer it to have been more tailored but overall well worth the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver @ 110 degrees This vest is awesome! Living in Las Vegas and working outside with horses during our summer months this vest is a life saver. I fold mine up and put it in a zip lock bag in the fridge so it's cool each day. The high collar on this style verses others on the market will keep you cooler and save you the money of buying a cooling towel too.
