they are advertised to be 'cooler than nothing' becus they ostensibly reflect the sun before it hits your skin. i think 'cooler than nothing' can be true under some weather conditions, but not all. i have worn these in hot weather and under some conditions they do help. dampen them with tapwater and if it's not too humid outside, it will definitely have a cooling effect. i don't know what they are like in really humid heat.
but here's the cool thing, they help you keep warm on a cold morning, especially under a windbreaker... and when the day heats up, you just shed the outer garment and leave the sleeves on.
there's one thing about really white fabrics... they don't stay really white for long. no matter what laundry torture you subject them to, eventually they're gonna get a little dingy. i'm resigned to that.
also help to increase visibility of your signalling arms at night. you DO signal, don't you?
Thank you for your feedback.
