Rated 5 out of 5 by JokerInTheWind Almost chilly in 105 degrees
Picked this up just today after saying, "Enough is enough with these 100 plus days." This thing does exactly what is says: it keeps you cool. The read out on my RGS said 104 but I was just fine and not sweating at all. Because it keeps your core nice and cool, the blood circulating to your limbs keeps them cool as well.
If you live in any of the Southwestern states, this is a life saver. Whenever you stop to fill up the tank, just run inside and run the water from the sink over top of the vest and you are good. It only takes 2 minutes of soaking to be fully charge. The instructions say 1 to 2 minutes and that is correct.
Buy it. You won't regret it.

The hydration vests that are sold in Harley Davidson Stores are comfortable, durable, and efficient. They increase your riding comfort and time on the bike in hot weather and help to relieve the stress and fatigue associated with riding in hot weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UncleLenny Good for a long ride; not so much around town.
I got this vest as a gift and since I live where it is often triple digits, I was glad. I used it on a 4 hour ride in desert heat. I soaked it for about two minutes as the instructions suggested, wiped it off and put it on. I wore it over a T-shirt and under a mesh jacket. It worked for 90 minutes and I rewet it roadside from a bottle, put it back on and rode so more. It dries in about 90 minutes, but my t-shirt was still wet when I got home. I could have taken the vest off and ridden with just the wet t-shirt under the mesh jacket until the T was dry...and I'll try that next time. In heat like this (southern Utah and Nevada) I think it's a help to keep me from dehydrating. No stain on my T, BTY. It's worth the cost (and even better to get as a gift).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gabe2006 Good Product
I have bought 2 of this product; I have to say that it does work great. You can use it even for cold days. As per the other review it does bleed some when wet/ just make sure to wear a shirt that you don't mind throwing away... Over all it's a great item.
