I saw on tv that the Japanese have come out with a long sleeve shirt thats air conditioned! They said the startup price would be $90.

There should be a huge market for those, especially us here in the south (Texas).

Did anybody else here see that or hear about it?

Tell me more fellas! I know East Tn isn't the hottest place in the world to mow, but it sure gets hot enough for me - I wear a Tilley Hat, coolmax polo, coolmax socks and usually a pair of shorts or lightweight, loose fitting kahki pants and I still burn up!

I'm looking at the photo fga posted and am envisioning mounting the cooler looking unit on my mower, but how I could use it trimming and blowing I don't know :)!!!!

fga, it is totally different than that. The shirts and jackets have two built in fans that evaporate perspiration and its supposed to cool for 10 hrs.
no backpack or bulky space look.
here's the link,

You know, there are several vest-type products that are specifically made for the motorcycle industry, but might work well for those in the green industry. I know they can be bought in the $50 dollar range, and work well for the bike application. It's a thought.

Under Armour! Their "Loose Gear" line are the coolest shirts I've ever worn. I wear the "Heat Gear" under my vest while I'm at work (cop) and the "Cold Gear" when I'm skiing in the winter.

battags,
so wearing this shirt underneath a loose fitting t-shirt will keep me cooler than just wearing the t-shirt alone?

Sorry...just checked back in.

From what I've heard, many people love the Silver Eagle Outfitters version of cool clothing. They say it works great, at least for the motorcycle applications.

Do a search on Silver Eagle Outfitters, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

Yes, but in this case one could just wear the "loose Gear" They fit like regular t-shirts.

I purchased a "Titanium" 100% polyester T shirt made by "Columbia sportsware company" (just to try), up til this time I have had only cotton t's and my world was SOGGY. I liked this shirt so much I went back to the sportswear shop and bought another four shirts (cleaned the rack). now I am comfortable most of the time. I perspire a lot and the shirts still get damp but soggy I am NOT. Next on the shopping list are poly boxers (if they work as well as the t's I will be in heaven.
