    The Next Generation in cooling, The new TechNiche Evaporative Cooling fabric:  HyperKewlTM  Plus

    TechNiche is proud to announce the release of HyperKewl Plus, the next generation in cooling technology! HyperKewl Plus has all of the great features of the original HyperKewl with the added benefit of being machine washable.

    HyperKewl Plus is easy to activate, just like the original. Simply soak the garment in water for 1 to 2 minutes, gently squeeze out the excess water and enjoy the cooling effect for 5- 10 hours. Backed up by extensive field testing and lab testing, our new HyperKewl Plus delivers all of the cooling you need for improved PERFORMANCE, SAFETY AND COMFORT.

    SGS studied the cooling power of HyperKewl PLUS and found that it has a cooling capacity of 0.231 W/cm2. That is the equivalent of up to 2200 BTU/hr of cooling (based on our 6529 model vest).

    Another study was conducted by the University of Hertfordshire on a 40KM time trial using HyperKewl Plus. This study found four key results:

    1. Performance improved by 5.56% when wearing a TechNiche Cooling Vest.
    2. The mean body temperature was found to be significantly lower when wearing a TechNiche Cooling Vest, helping to avoid heat stress and improving the user’s Safety.
    3. The mean power output was found to be significantly greater when wearing a TechNiche Cooling Vest.
    4. Study participants felt more alert, and more Comfortable when wearing a TechNiche Cooling Vest during the time trial.

    All of TechNiche’s HyperKewl Evaporative Cooling products will be made with HyperKewl PLUS, with these great new products being upgraded and released throughout 2019.
