    Body Armor Ventilation Cooling Vest - Does The Maxx-Dri Vest Work During The Cold Weather Winter Months?

    However, did you know that The Maxx-Dri Vest isn't just for the Summer and hot weather months? In fact, tens of thousands of sheepdogs wear their Maxx-Dri Vest all year round. Why? Because body armor ventilation is critical to your comfort and safety all year round.

    June 29, 2020 Suresh Madhavan

    How Police Officers Can Stop Feeling Hot, Sweaty, Itchy and Miserable While Wearing Body Armor

    If you wear body armor on the job and get hot, sweaty and itchy, what would you give to actually not feel miserable all shift long? If you said "anything" ... keep reading.

    Cop invents breathable cooling vest for police law enforcement officers and military to wear under armor to stay cooler and less sweaty

    When designing the Maxx-Dri Vest for body armor ventilation, Madhavan ensured that the vest provided full 360° ventilation so law enforcement police officers, first responders and soldiers would experience cooling and airflow around their entire body. This makes sense considering you don't just get hot and sweaty in one area; you get hot and sweaty everywhere your body armor covers. Madhavan said this was evident every time he and his co-workers took their body armor off. There was literally a dark, wet spot on their shirts which matched up exactly to where their body armor rested; front, back, shoulders and sides. That's why the Maxx-Dri Vest specifically provides full separation and ventilation beneath your entire body armor.
