    I'd posted a reply in another thread concerning motorcycle clothing useful for the almost unbearable summer heat and humidity. Here are just a few of the options available... that will make riding in this heat somewhat more comfortable :)

    Veskimo Personal Cooling System combines a lightweight, breathable personal cooling vest that is worn under ones normal clothing, connected to a Hydration Backpack that is worn over ones clothing. The body cooling vest is supplied with ice water circulated from the backpack via a high efficiency battery powered pump.

    SteeleVest®
    is a patented cooling vest used by people facing extreme heat stress conditions in the military, utilities, hazardous waste cleanup, chemical, medical and other industrial environments. Frozen Thermo-strips; (starch-based gel ice packs which you can freeze over and over again in a household freezer) are simply inserted into the insulated body cooling vest, providing up to four hours of cooling vest comfort at a time. SteeleVest's construction and features provide numerous benefits. There are no mechanical parts or maintenance worries, and no electric, air or water supply is required. The cooling vest weighs only five pounds fully loaded. It conforms to one's body for a slim and comfortable fit, and can be customized to deliver just the body cooling one desires in a variety of conditions.

    Ms Cooling
    offers a wide range of products for Motorcyclists:
    Evaporative cooling and phase changing cooling are available in cooling vests, cooling head bandana's for under the helmet. Cooling safety vest in orange for better visiablity. MS Cooling also have added a range of warming apparel for motorcycle riders. Heated gloves and helmet liners. A Warming vest lined with fleece with reusable inserts.


    StaCool
    has a range of under vests designed for motorcyclists and a review can be found in Wing World magazine (Honda Gold Wing enthusiasts magazine). An excerpt from the Wing World article can be read here

    Arctic Heat offers a range of products su7ck as cooling vests and claims to be used by many elite sporting bodies, industry workers, doctors and people with Multiple Sclerosis, all around the World. Arctic Heat claim is being sold throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

    Wondering just how long the Veskimo would stay working in 34 degree heat. I'm thinking that after a few hours it would be pumping hot water rather than cold. Still, I am envious as I contemplate my morning ride tomorrow...
