Cool vest info.


I know I'm not the only one that sweats their butts off in their batsuits I've been spending a lot of time looking for a solution and I think I found one.

I figure what the heck and I'm gonna give it a shot. Once I get it I'll post a little write up. So far this looks like the best option. My logic and medical knowledge here is if I can keep my body core cool enough then the circulating blood will help to cool the rest of my body. At least that's how we treat hyperthermia. I still need to have measures in place to collect all the sweating from all the other parts of my body.

Re: A cool idea... (no pun intended)


I got the cool shirt today and it looks perfect. I mounted the can on my belt (guess that's why they call it a utility belt) and I'll be wearing the whole getup on Saturday with Batbrat so if everything goes as planned I'll have good words and pictures then.

Re: A cool idea... (no pun intended)


Hey i've seen that thing before. Disney stunt men put it on during this stunt car show at disney world, because the show deals with a lot of fire stunts and their cars have no AC. I was just thinking about it the other day when i was dirving to school how much i wanted one. not for a costume but i live in texas and its hot as hell. It would be amazing to have one just for every day! Good luck with building yours!

Really interested in hearing how this works out.
You could actually make an extra "pouch" on your existing utility belt for the cool cans.

....if they have a cap that can attach to the shirt, this would be the PERFECT invention for bats everywhere

Mike, not sure if you checked the email, but if you get on the board before you look at your inbox....

I have secured an area to change in and mall security won't hassle us as we walk to and from the dressing area and the center court.

I'll see you tomorrow, bro. :up

Re: A cool idea... (no pun intended)


He's been really busy lately, so I'll try to give a brief generalization and he can give details:

Thickness is about the same as a t-shirt. Has the tubing running all over the front and back. two small tubes cowm out of the back and connect to a can of liquid. I want to say nitrogen or Co2.

Push the button on the can and it shoots the stuff into the tubing, cooling the entire shirt.

I wasn't in it, but Mike said that it was very similar to a built-in AC unit.

Re: A cool idea... (no pun intended)


That's nice to hear. I wear a "Cool Vest" with packets that have to be put in the freezer. They last about two hours on a good day. The one thing that works for me is to have one around my neck. It really helps with the sweat factor.

Re: A cool idea... (no pun intended)


I would love to get one of those if I had the spare cash lying around. My wreck pretty much broke my wallet. But man. That does sound good. Hope some more of you guys grab one of these, sounds very handy.
