SHIMA HYDROCOOL is a lightweight and easy to use cooling vest. Simply soak the vest under water for 3 minutes, squeeze it gently and enjoy cooling your body for 6-8 hours. Thanks to the innovative HyperKewl™ PLUS material, the vest absorbs and slowly evaporates water. The HyperKewl™ PLUS technology works by absorbing water into the material which is placed between the waterproof inner liner and the ventilated outer fabric. When air flows through, the natural evaporation process creates a feeling of coolness. This lightweight and non-toxic material, can be machine washed without worrying about losing its properties. Featuring a front zip and EvoLink system, the vest is easy to wear and connect to the SHIMA jacket.
The Hydrocool cooling vest will allow you to get maximum pleasure from motocycle riding - even on extremely hot days. By taking it with you on your motocycle journey, you don’t have to worry about high temperatures. This is thanks to the use of HyperKewl™ PLUS fabric. It's a material that absorbs water and then gradually evaporates it. Preparing the vest for action is extremely easy and fast. Just place it under water for 3 minutes, then squeeze the excess water and gently wipe the inside. Done! Now you can enjoy the pleasant feeling of coolness for up to 8 hours (cooling time depends on the air temperature). When you combine it with the selected SHIMA jacket model, the temperature inside the jacket will decrease by to 8 °C. HyperKewl™ PLUS technology keeps your clothes dry and you can enjoy motocycle riding even on hot days. Put on your Hydrocool vest and let it work!
You can pair the Hydrocool vest with your jacket thanks to the EvoLink system. It’s, simply speaking, a layering system. This innovative technology allows you to combine additional SHIMA accessories with different SHIMA jacket models. Thanks to the loops (4 at the front and 1 at the back) you can do this easily and quickly, almost intuitively. In addition, you can use the Hydrocool vest not only while motocycle riding on two wheels. It’s also ideal for other outdoor activities. And it’s so thin and light that you can easily wear it as an outer layer - it will fit under a jacket or suit. Just remember, it needs to be close to your body for it to good work.
