Today I went out for a ride with an actual purpose. It’s starting to show signs of getting warm. Today’s high was 86 and it should be into the 90’s by the middle of the week. I just got Cycle Gear’s new catalogue and saw they had Motoboss cooling vests on sale (along with a five dollar off coupon). I thought since I live about five miles from hell, I’d pick one up to see how they work. Cycle Gear is only about 15 miles or so from my house, but it ended up being an interesting ride. Midway there, around
Once I got to Cycle Gear they were very helpful and even soaked the vest for me so I could try it out on the ride home. I was surprised at how cold the vest actually got. I was wearing it under a black mesh jacket and it kept me quite cool. Amazingly enough when I took it off, my t-shirt felt damp but it wasn’t visibly wet. I’m waiting to see if it still will work when it hits 115+.
