Frequently Asked Questions

WHY DOES THE CURRENCY CHANGE FROM USA DOLLARS TO CANADIAN DOLLARS AT CHECKOUT?

EH! We are a Canadian company and therefore our prices at check out will have the Canadian currency in the CAD price, however, rest assured that you will be paying in the currency of your Country. Therefore, if you reside in the USA, you will be charged US dollars on your credit card/payment method even though it shows the Canadian currency. 

HOW DOES THE COOLING VEST WORK?

The Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest is created out of a light weight honeycomb mesh that allows air to freely circulate while reducing perspiration and moisture. The Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest creates a spacer between your body armor and your undershirt so that your body armor is no longer against your body. This creates airflow and breathability keeping  your body cooler and more comfortable.

IS THE ARMADILLO DRY COOLING VEST A BALLISTIC VEST?

No. The Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest is a spacer between your body armor and your undershirt so that you feel cooler and are able to create airflow between the two.

Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest is not for protection and is similar to products such as moisture wicking shirts. Our cooling vest provides comfort and airflow.

It provides no ballistic protection. Our product does not replace your personal protective equipment and does not act as a carrier for ballistic panels. 

HOW TO WEAR AND CARE FOR YOUR COOLING VEST

The Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest is to be worn over your shirt and under your body armor. The cooling vest is not intended to be worn over the skin. In addition, do not put a shirt over the cooling vest as this will prevent airflow. In order to wash your cooling vest, put it in the washing machine, once washed hang up to air dry. The Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest never needs to go into the dryer.  The Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest can be worn for a few sets of shifts before needing to go into the washer as moisture doesn’t tend to absorb in the vest.

WHY IS THE LOGO AN ARMADILLO?

In Spanish, Armadillo means "little armored one."

For our company, the Armadillo is a symbol that represents all those who serve and protect. These creatures are brave, determined and survive in hot and dry environments through self-regulating internal characteristics.

Like an Armadillo, we know how strong, resilient, and adaptable first responders are. Thank you for your service.

Since then, a number of companies were founded that sell breathable products including cooling vests, shirts and other related products.

We stand apart from other companies by offering high-quality cooling vests at a price any first-responder can afford. We believe everyone who wears Personal Protective Equipment deserves to be comfortable.

IS THE ARMADILLO DRY COOLING VEST WORN ONLY WHEN IT IS HOT?

It helps you stay cooler and dry in the hot months, and drier and warmer in the cold months.

The Armadillo Dry Cooling Vest helps reduce moisture and odor while keeping the user comfortable.
