KoolBlues Umpire Chest Protector Cooling System
Crew How-To: Install the KoolBlues Umpire Chest Protector Cooling System
Oro Valley, AZ
Two thumbs up for KoolBlues. They stood the test in a tournament last weekend. Provided much-needed heat relief in Phoenix. Had to change them out for back-to-back plates. Worked multiple back-to-back plates over three days. Highly recommend these jewels. Have a 6:30 varsity game tonight in Tucson. Will definitely be wearing one.
Very nice item.
An awesome product definitely, makes a difference. My partner said he would cover the plate if I let him use my Kool Blues, I did and he had his own within the week! Need something for base umpire many a sleeveless compression shirt with the pouch sewn in??
Questions About This Product
|Q:||I bought the product and it definitely works. However, after watching the videos and reading everything I could find, I haven't seen any info on the following: what direction should the cold packs face when they're placed in the pouch? Should they be printed side facing your chest, mesh side facing the chest, or does it matter?|
– Larry Snyder
For the best results, having the mesh side of the Therma-Freeze ice pack against your chest should allow more of the cooling effect to be felt.– Ty Unthank
