Comments about TechNiche Hyperkewl Standard Sport Vest:
I am pretty satisfied with the vest hear in the Greater Houston Swamp. The problem is that it is so freaking humid here, an evaportive vest does not work as well as it will in a drier climate. Having said that, the vest retains water well and doesn't drip excessively. I hope to get the chance to test it in more-or-less drier climate later this month in a ride to Elgin (near Austin). I hope that I can buy a phase change vest before next summer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This vest works great. However everytime I get gas I go ahead and resoak the vest in cool water it tends to dry to the point wear the cooling effect dulls out some. 1 minute soak is all i do or I have to squeeze out excess water so it does not drip all over the place. The vest is a bit heavy when soaked but once you put it on the weight becomes unnoticable. Overall, the best piece of summer gear i have bought, works great with my mesh jacket and for the price it was a MUST BUY.
Better than a wet shirt, but . . .

With our intense heat this summer, it was either try this product (or one like it), OR simply leave the bikes standing until cooler weather (fall?) So, I decided to finally give this product a try . . . and the best I can say is that it makes riding in very hot/humid weather SLIGHTLY more bearable. I wear the vest, soaked in cool water for 2+ minutes and then wrung out per the instructions, under my mesh jacket. Used this way, and riding my bike with the smallest fairing (my 1982 GPz550) the vest adds a nice cooling effect for about 60-90 minutes, as long as you keep moving. After that time period, however, you're left wearing a damp, kind of clammy garment that doesn't feel particularly cool. And that was with free airflow; behind the fairing on my BMW R100RS, the cooling effect was diminished. Overall, the vest helps a bit, but for a relatively short period of time, and it doesn't work well enough to get me out in mid-day heat above the mid-90s or so. (Not sure anything would -- my "testing" was done on early morning rides).
This is my second purchase

I wore my last one out. These vests make the hottest days bearable so you can enjoy the ride. I ride in the SW dessert and consider this standard equipment. Not sure how they work in damp heat... The Techniche vest is the best of the cool vests I have used.
