Snapshot: Surviving the Heat with a Cooling Vest

My gear for really hot riding: boonie hat and TechNiche Cooling Vest ;) It's a nylon quilted vest that holds half a liter of water and when I'm moving, air flows through my Kevlar mesh jacket and evaporates the water on my core and cools it down. At 47 C (117 F) and low humidity, it lasts for about an hour or so and then I re-wet it. It provides chilling relief while riding through the oven that is India's peak summer in the center. Dreaming of shivering in the Himalayas soon...
