Wrap some coolness into your umpire chest protector with the KoolBlue's Cooling System. It helps baseball and softball umpires stay cool during those hot summer days with Thermafreeze ice packs strapped onto your chest protector in a pouch with elastic straps.

This is the first prototype designed and crafted by Indiana umpire Brad Finken.

  • Elastic straps with Velcro attachment
  • 4 Thermafreeze reusable ice packs included

Instructions

  • Submerge or soak the soft side of Thermafreeze ice packs

This really works. I didn't try to put in fresh sheets during the game, but the two sheets that I started with stayed cool for about two hours. Now if they could develop something similar to go in our caps (that would be the ultimate).

Only lasted me one inning. Comfortable to wear, I didn't feel it on after it warmed up. Wish it lasted longer.

So far so good, does it's job and keeps one cool, great product and comfortable to wear, not too heavy or bulky.

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
A: 

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.
