Silver Eagle Outfitters Introduces Affordable Line of Workforce Cooling Apparel to Fight Heat Stress

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama-April 15, 2003-Silver Eagle Outfitters, LLC, pioneers of recreational evaporative cooling apparel and products made of Hydroweave, debuts a new line of workforce garments proven to keep the wearer cool and safe at a fraction of the cost of other personal cooling gear. Determined to cut the risk of heat related injuries for industrial and outdoor workers, Silver Eagle Outfitters has combined evaporative cooling technology with efficient design to produce the new line, which includes a Class 3, Level 2 ANSI/ISEA 107-1999 High Visibility cooling vest.

Silver Eagle Outfitters created the workplace line of cooling apparel for workers who are exposed to heat and heat-related illnesses through their jobs. "The introduction of our workforce cooling apparel not only cuts the risk of heat related illnesses and injuries, but also cuts the cost of providing protection against the hazards and discomforts of working in hot environments. This is the first time high-performance cooling apparel can be bought at a budget price. Silver Eagle's workforce cooling vests start as low as $35 and top out at $47 for the Class 3 Level 2 high visibility vest with reflective tape. With so many people out there braving heat to perform their jobs, it is only logical that we make apparel to meets their workforce standards," said Nancy Keen, Cofounder of Silver Eagle Outfitters.

Finding a reasonable way to combat heat stress, which causes muscle cramps, fatigue, irritability, poor judgment, and increased numbers of accidents has been a frustrating quest for employers and employees alike. Thus far, most personal cooling gear has required refrigeration and ice packs, pumps, tubes, chemicals, or other appliances. Not only is such gear expensive to buy, it is also heavy and uncomfortable to wear, adding to a worker's burden rather than helping to reduce it.

Rather than using cooling gels or ice packs, Silver Eagle garments are constructed of a patented, three-layer fabric called Hydroweave®. Activated in minutes by tap water, the garments use evaporative technology to cool the wearer for two to eight hours, depending on the climate and environmental conditions. Fully activated, Silver Eagle apparel remains ultra light and breathable, allowing the wearer full range of motion and consistent comfort. Hydroweave's water-resistant inner liner pulls heat away from the body and wicks moisture away from the skin, keeping the wearer cool and dry.

Silver eagle garments fit comfortably over or under work clothes or can be worn directly against the skin. Worn dry, the garments provide an effective barrier to the cold and wind. All Silver Eagle products are machine washable, line-or machine dry.

The Silver Eagle Utility Cooling Vests are available in pullover and zip-front styles featuring a quick-dry outer shell is made of pure finish, two-ply Supplex®. Specially engineered by DuPont, Supplex resists abrasions, punctures, and tears. Lightweight and odor-resistant, Supplex provides the strength, durability, and performance demanded in the workplace.

The zip-front vest is available in sizes small through 5XL with khaki Supplex outer shell, or with an ANSI certified high-visibility, lime-green, polyester outer shell for only $40.

The High Visibility Cooling Vest is designed to meet the requirements of the Class 3, Level 2 ANSI High Visibility Standard recommended for all roadway construction personnel and vehicle operators, utility workers, survey crews, emergency response teams, railway crews, and accident site investigators.
