How it Works

Add H2O and Go!

Soaking Silver Eagle cooling products in water activates the cooling process. When activated, special water-retaining, hydrophilic fibers in the batting capture and lock in a finite amount of water. The hydrophobic fill evenly distributes and surrounds these water-charged fibers with air, creating an ideal environment for evaporation. This combination of hydrophilic and hydrophobic fibers delivers a slow, controlled release of moisture, enabling hours of evaporative cooling comfort

Activation Instructions

Package Activation Method: Silver Eagle cooling vests and blankets are packaged in a zip-lock activation bag. The activation method described below is a quick and easy way to activate your garment.

  • Remove the paper insert from the package
  • Place the folded garment into the bag
  • Pour the correct amount of water indicated in the Water Activation Amount Chart (view here) for your size and type of garment into the activation bag with the garment. The amount of water needed to activate the vest will depend on the size and type of garment
  • Zip-lock the top of the activation package
  • Shake bag slightly and lay flat for 15 minutes
  • Remove the garment from the activation package. If necessary, gently wring the garment or roll it in a towel to remove any excess water
  • Wipe off any excess moisture from the inner lining (the side that you wear next to your body) with a paper towel or dry cloth

To Make A Zip-Lock Activation Package

You can make your own activation package by using a heavy-duty, zip-lock plastic bag. This bag should be large enough to hold the folded vest comfortably. Fill the bag with 1.5 to 2 cups of water and follow the instructions given above

Note: DO NOT leave activated products in the activation bag for more than 24 hours

Machine Method

The washing machine is a great way to activate Silver Eagle products. Simply run your vest, blanket, or headwear through the rinse-and-spin cycle without detergent. When your machine stops, your product is ready to use immediately or to store in an activation pouch for use later in the day

Submersion Method

  • Soak Silver Eagle products in a sink or container of cool water for 5 minutes to charge the special absorbent fibers. Because the middle layer of our fabric has finite water-absorbing capabilities, you cannot over-soak or over-activate Silver Eagle products
  • Remove excess water by gently wringing out the garment or rolling it in a towel
  • Towel dry the inner lining and outer shell

Wash and Care

Care should be taken to secure Velcro Straps/Zippers to prevent any snagging of the garment during washing/machine drying

  • Pre-treat stains with stain remover
  • Presoak 5 minutes before adding a mild detergent
  • Wash as normal on gentle cycle. DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH
  • Line dry or machine dry on low heat
  • Thoroughly dry product before storing

Note: Do not freeze Silver Eagle evaporative cooling products

Cooling Garment Sizing:

Men's Classic Cooling Vests:

  1. Measure around the shoulder blades, under arms, to the fullest part of the chest or torso. The tape measure should be snug but not tight.
  2. All the vests offer a generally straight fit, so the waist measurement will be the same as the chest/bust measurement. Each vest offers a Button or Velcro waist strap to taper the waist to a proper fit.
  3. All of our garments work best when they fit close to the body, however, they should not feel tight. If your measurement is borderline, then select the next size.
  4. If you do select the wrong size, feel free to send it back to us within 30 days for a size exchange.

commentsI've got a cooling vest for motorcycle ride a year ago, I live in Jakarta where the temp is about 34C all the years. This stuff is really good for me during the ride (I ride a HD btw), as for my experience it will keep you cool at least 5 hours. I love this product...some of my riding buddies have asked me to order one for them, which I did. I would recommend to use one in summer time. Jok Jakarta, Indonesia

commentsWe have just returned from 3 weeks motorbike touring in the USA, and once again 'thank you' for your cooling vests. Riding through Death Valley at 45C we kept comfortably cool, and 10 days later in the Colorado Rockies we were riding in temps of -7C (and altitudes of 11,500 ft) and were using the vests dry as an extra layer of warming clothing. Great all round. We spent approx 2 weeks of temps around 38C to 40C each day, through California, Nevada, Arizona (yes, Route 66), and Utah, then a week of ccoolldd in Colorado, and we used the evaporative vests most days. Great products, and we strongly recommend them. David and Zea, SE Qld

commentsThanks for your prompt, efficient and friendly service each time I have called you to buy a Silver Eagle Cooling Vest. These vests are terrific for motorcyclists who ride in the hotter months in Australia. I bought one last summer for my wife. We ride a fair bit each summer including long distance IronButt type events and on several occasions she has suffered badly in the high temperatures. Last January a group of us were riding along the Murray Valley in temperatures in the high forties. The three guys in the group were suffering badly but my wife, wearing her Silver Eagle Cool vest under her jacket, was very comfortable. The vest's performance was so remarkable that when we got home I ordered one for myself. I have used mine frequently since and am amazed that something so simple, simply works so well. I was so pleased that I bought one for my son as a birthday gift. He is also thrilled with the difference it makes on a long hot ride. Peter H - Victoria

commentsWe (my wife Zea and I) have been using your Silver Eagle evaporative vests when motorbiking here in SE Qld through summer, and find them great. Last Sunday we did a ride to Tenterfield for lunch (300k's each way), and were cool and comfortable even in the 35-degree heat. So easy to 'recharge' too. David - Queensland
