Draeger Cooling Vest

When work gets hot, the Draeger Cooling Vest is 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.

Automatic cooling above 28 °C

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 Draeger Cooling Vest can last for up to 4 hours.

Wearing comfort

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.

Regenerates when stored - within 4 hours at most

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
  • Weight complete, including cooling elements: approx. 2.1 kg
  • Storage condition horizontal
  • Skin temperature difference when using: 3 - 4 °C
