YOU SOAK THIS vest in wa­ter, squeeze out the ex­cess, then put it on. It feels in­stantly cool but (sur­pris­ingly) not un­pleas­antly damp. It works as a heat ex­changer and as the mois­ture evap­o­rates, it keeps you cool. It stopped me over­heat­ing when off-road­ing in 30°C+ temps in Italy (see p109) and by the end of the day, nei­ther my base layer nor the in­side of my jacket was wet. Not sure I’d use it much in the UK but for tour­ing hot places, it’s great. SW

Vest keeps you cool, not look­ing cool. Or thin
