Fan Jacket for Hot Weather

Post by Zasso Nouka »

What with the weather warming up now I was just wondering if anyone has tried one of these fan jackets

Saw them last year and supposedly they were developed in association with JAXA but are they any good ?

Senor Gonbe's company bought some for the older dudes that work in the stock room. But he says they only wore them once or twice and then stopped.

Thanks Gonbechan,

That's exactly the kind of feedback I was after. On paper it looks like a good idea but when you start to wonder how well it work in practice it's not so clear, will save my money and enjoy siesta time instead of trying to power through the hottest part of the day. Perhaps I should invest in a good hammock instead :lol:

No personal experience with these, but a friend who does roof-related work said they were helpful.

For me, it just seems like a laughable concept from someone's stoned brainstorm doodling session. :lol:
