      Body thermoregulation


      Man is a homeotherm; a living being whose average, constant temperature is independent of the surrounding environment...

      Resisting cold, adapting to heat, maintaining an internal temperature of around 37°C at all times, whatever our metabolic level or the temperature of the surrounding environment: this is the principle of thermoregulation.


      The consequences of less efficient thermogenesis


      When a person is exposed to the cold for too long, their body may become unable to maintain an adequate temperature to function properly. If the oral temperature falls below 35°C, the person is hypothermic.

      Hyperthermia, on the other hand, is a rise in body temperature caused by an accumulation of heat. This phenomenon occurs particularly in the event of sunstroke or heatwave.

       

      Why are we hot?

      When we feel hot, it's often due to an increase in internal body temperature or exposure to hot environmental conditions. Thermoregulation is the mechanism that enables our body to maintain a stable temperature despite variations in the environment.

      The normal body temperature of a healthy human being is generally maintained at around 37°C. Various physiological processes help regulate this temperature in hot weather. 

      When our body detects an increase in internal or external temperature, it triggers a series of responses to dissipate the heat and maintain body temperature within a normal range. Here are some of the mechanisms involved in thermoregulation:

      1. Perspiration: When body temperature rises, the sweat glands produce sweat, which is then released through the skin pores. As the sweat evaporates, it absorbs body heat, helping to cool the body.

      2. Vasodilation: Blood vessels on the skin's surface dilate, allowing more warm blood to circulate close to the skin. This promotes heat dissipation by convection, helping to cool the body.

      3. Increased lung ventilation: When we're hot, our body can increase the rate of breathing, allowing more heat to be removed through exhalation.

      4. Hormonal regulation: The hypothalamus, a region of the brain, plays a key role in thermoregulation. It detects temperature variations and coordinates the body's responses to maintain thermal equilibrium. It can, for example, stimulate the production of sweat or trigger the sensation of thirst to encourage water consumption and maintain hydration.

      Some people may be more sensitive to heat, depending on their age, state of health or prolonged exposure to hot conditions. In extreme situations, thermoregulation may fail, leading to consequences such as dehydration, heat exhaustion or heat stroke. It is therefore essential to take appropriate precautions, such as staying hydrated, protecting yourself from the sun and avoiding strenuous activity during periods of high heat. 

      This advice is not a substitute for professional medical advice. If you find the heat particularly unbearable, consult your doctor.

      The benefits of cooling vests


      To (re)act when the body can't, we've developed a complete range of cooling vests to help reduce the sensation of heat and discomfort. These high-performance products are designed for anyone who takes part in outdoor activities in hot weather (athletes, outdoor workers, etc.). 

      Cooling vests for every activity

      Whatever your activity, our cooling vests are designed to adapt to your specific needs when the thermometer climbs. Whether you're a professional working outdoors, a sports enthusiast or simply enjoy the great outdoors, our cooling vests are designed to provide optimum comfort in all situations.

      Cooling sports vest

      In summer, the heat can quickly become an obstacle to your sporting performance. That's where our sport cooling vest comes in, specially designed to give you an intense and prolonged cooling effect during your sporting activities. Based on our advanced POLYCOOL cooling technology, it helps you maintain optimum body temperature, even during the most intense workouts. Whether you're running, cycling, playing tennis or any other sport, our range of sports cooling vests will help you stay cool, improve your comfort and maximize your performance.

      Cooling vests for professionals

      Managing heat is an equally important and crucial issue for professionals. Excessive heat can lead to exhaustion, dehydration, irritability and stress... To prevent such consequences, we have developed cooling vests to meet the specific needs of outdoor workers. The cool pack vest and cooling v est offer constant cooling and protection against high temperatures, keeping you focused and performing throughout the day. An innovative, simple and effective solution for landscapers, material handlers, construction professionals, farmers, market gardeners, bus drivers, municipal workers, delivery personnel... or any other professional working outdoors.

       

      How does a cooling vest work?

      The effectiveness of our cooling vests is based on two innovative technologies that involve no chemicals: POLYCOOL and PHASECOOL.

      POLYCOOL technology

      Our evaporative cooling technology POLYCOOL evaporative cooling technology is based on a polymer fiber with exceptional properties. Highly absorbent, it retains water in the vest's lining without soaking and cools it down at an average temperature of 15°C. It prolongs the natural evaporation process to keep you cool and comfortable even in the hottest conditions.

      (vests concerned: cooling vest, cooling vest, SPORT cooling vest)

      PHASECOOL technology

      Our PHASECOOL technology innovates through the use of a phase-change material (PCM). This device is able to switch intelligently between solid and liquid states, capturing heat from your immediate environment, such as your skin, while maintaining a stable temperature. 

      Once solid, simply place the packs in the vest pockets provided. The result? A quick, stable feeling of freshness at 18°C, while staying dry!

      (vests concerned: cooling pack vest + cooling packs)  

      Why choose a cooling vest?

      During prolonged exercise, ambient temperature plays a crucial role in the gradual rise in your body temperature. The sun's rays amplify this rise in temperature through radiation. Your skin and clothing absorb the sun's rays, contributing to a rise in your internal temperature. So it's best to opt for technical clothing such as cooling vests to keep cool and prevent heat-related risks.

      Advanced cooling technology

      Our cooling vests feature innovative POLYCOOL technology, specially designed to give you a long-lasting feeling of freshness. Thanks to the polymer fiber used in their manufacture, these vests absorb moisture and promote prolonged evaporation, unlike conventional garments. The result? Intense, constant cooling all day long!

      Incomparable comfort and durability

      When you opt for a cooling vest, you can be sure of optimum comfort in every situation. Our vests are designed with comfort and freedom of movement in mind. The materials used ensure a soft, pleasant feel on the skin, while being resistant and durable. You'll enjoy a perfect fit and lightness that will allow you to go about your daily activities in warm weather without any discomfort. 

      A wide range for all needs and activities

      Our wide range of models offers a variety of styles, sizes and features to suit your preferences and requirements, whether you're a professional working outdoors, an avid sportsman or simply looking for extra comfort during your outdoor escapades! 

      How to use our cooling vests 

      Activate POLYCOOL technology

      Soak your vest in water for about a minute - you don't need a lot of water, just enough to keep it completely damp. Squeeze out the water gently. Dry with a dry cloth. Wear it and instantly enjoy the benefits of the refresher! Once dry, reactivate your vest by wetting it again.
