Increased performance by up to four hours – without the need for elaborate preparation or logistics: when work gets hot, the Dräger Comfort Vest CVP 5220 is always ready to use as it delivers the cooling action itself. This means: no pre-freezing, no dipping into water, no risk due to dangerous circulating air – and no time loss.
The vest’s cooling action is derived from 20 individual PCM-elements (Phase Change Material) integrated into the inner lining. Whether performing tasks that are physical enough to cause sweating or working in high temperature surroundings: at a skin temperature of 28 °C, the content of the PCM-elements gradually become liquid by absorbing the excessive heat. This reduces skin temperature by approx. 3 – 4 °C. Depending on the level of physical work and the ambient temperature, the cooling benefit for the wearer of the Dräger Comfort Vest can last for up to 4 hours.
The arrangement of the PCM-elements provides high freedom of movement thanks to their flexible body fit. The vest can simply be worn underneath protective clothing such as fire brigade clothing or gas-tight chemical protective suits. Broad hook-and-loop fasteners ensure a tight fit.
At a storage temperature below 22 °C, the elements become solid again. After a maximum of 4 hours, the elements are ready to use again – the colder the faster. Extensive preparatory and post-work activities – as with ice vests – are no longer necessary.
- Service life of the PCM-elements: up to three years
- Easy donning thanks to hook-and-loop fasteners
- Vest can be washed after the elements have been removed
- Available in four different sizes: (S/M, L/XL, XXL/XXXL, XXXXL/XXXXXL)
