About the product
Even when using an ice pack to keep your body comfortable, it often becomes uncomfortable due to excessive coldness and condensation. Ethos Co., Ltd's 'Cooling Ice Pack Vest' is a cooling vest that effectively reduces condensation, ensuring a comfortable fit and preventing moisture from seeping into your clothes.
This vest is designed to provide full coverage during working hours. We have developed a proprietary ice pack that maintains a suitable temperature when worn and provides long-lasting cooling. Spare ice packs are also available to ensure continuous usage during extended work hours. With this vest, you can work comfortably even on extremely hot days!
Special attention to the ice pack
The Cooling Ice Pack Vest was developed from scratch, not only for the vest itself but also for the ice pack. We collaborated with an overseas partner factory to address common issues with conventional ice packs:
- The duration of the ice pack is short
- Clothes get wet with the ice pack
- It is challenging to use on the go
After several tests, we successfully developed an ice pack that is not excessively cold, maintains cooling for extended periods, and minimizes condensation.
During the development of the ice pack, we encountered some issues with water droplets and quick melting. The final model of the ice pack is a breakthrough, with minimal condensation on the surface that does not wet the vest. Additionally, we have solved the problem of being unable to replace the ice pack outdoors until now. The set includes four spare ice packs and a cold storage bag, allowing for ice pack replacement even while outside.
Dedicated cold storage bag
For testing purposes, we prepared 8 ice packs frozen in a freezer for 10 hours. 4 ice packs were worn, while the other 4 were stored in the special cold storage bag. At 8 am, with an outside air temperature of 30°C, the ice pack temperature was 12.6°C. After 4 hours, the temperature of the ice packs in the cold storage bag remained around 16°C, with a frozen hard part still visible in the center. It took approximately 5 hours for the ice packs to reach 20 degrees. In comparison, the stock ice packs showed only a 1-degree change. (Please note that these results are based on the specific test environment and may vary depending on operating conditions.) The Cooling Vest, which has undergone repeated testing, can be used in various situations such as barbecues, golf, construction work, agriculture, outdoor sales, food delivery, and other delivery activities.
Consideration for wearability
Common problems with the buckle part include crimping. To address this, we have provided a buckle guard to prevent damage to the body and carried goods. Stretch material is used to ensure a close fit to the body, allowing the cooling effect to be felt. Some individuals may initially feel a slight tightness, but we hope you understand that it is necessary for optimal cooling. The buckle belt on the chest allows for adjustment!
This useful cooling vest keeps you cool by simply storing coolants in the four pockets. Why not prepare for hot weather with this product, which has received positive feedback from many people in Japan?

Consumers have expressed their concerns regarding the use of cooling ice pack vests in the face of increasing heat each year. They have mentioned issues such as ice packs defrosting too quickly and causing condensation on clothes. In response to these complaints, the cooling ice pack vest was developed. It aims to address the problems of rapid defrosting, condensation on clothes, and excessively cold ice packs. An innovative ice pack vest has been created to tackle these issues.
Extensive testing has been conducted on the ice pack, focusing on cooling duration and condensation prevention. We are confident that these are the most crucial factors. The concept of the vest is to provide full coverage throughout the working hours of individuals engaged in outdoor work. We hope you enjoy the long-lasting cooling sensation that cannot be experienced with air-conditioned clothing.
