    Dec 7, 2007, 9:06 AM - About wearing a costume #1

    Hello all, I was wondering do any of you wear a cooling vest with your costume? I dont have a complete fett yet but i was wonder how Hot does it get when wearing the costume.

    I've been eyeing the vest for some time and now i find out that their price was lowered. And i want to buy it. Do i need one?

    I've trooped in 110 degree tempretures before in my Stormtrooper (it's like wearing plastic wrap on your body. The heat stays trapped in, along with the sweat.)

    I've never used a cooling vest... I just try to get used to it, and drink plenty of water.

    What kind of cooling vest? The one with ice packs? or the one with water tubes?

    The ice pack one is going to get condinsation everywhere and the one with tubes you need an external device to pump the cold water thru...and that gets expensive.

    It takes ice packs. And also I remember that it said the material of the vest absorbs condensation. This is what the vest looks like.
