    1st review

    It may look funny, but it's worth any teasing you may get until your fellow officers try it for themselves. I got mine online from USCav.com and I love it. After suffering the heat for the last ten years, I'm looking forward to the next twenty. Buy it!...You will not regret it. They sell a K-9 model also, but I'm able to hook mine onto the cage in my unit when I want to give my dog an extra dose of cool air.

    Hot and Sweaty after a foot pursuit....................Not worth a S#@!

    CoolCop...............................................................$50.00

    CoolCop after a foot pursuit through a neighborhood, through the woods, across the interstate... twice...and back into the woods...........................PRICELESS

    I saw this advertise on the news. A department is equipping their officers with them. Nice tool to have especially in the summer time.

    I think it's cool that they have this for people like myself who sweats a lot .I wish we could have that in IRAQ where I am at now.Just by reading about it and looking at the photo. I would give it 5 stars

    I don't know about this thing....never tried it out but can't say I would even if we had em. Sometimes you just have to suffer the heat then look like an idiot. Reminds me of when my former partner bought a giant pickle at a convenience store. I told him I wasn't leaving the parking lot until he either ate the whole thing or threw it out the window....who the hell buys a giant pickle to eat while on duty (or off)???

    This is a must have item for any LEO's working in extreme hot areas. Just have to becareful if your to sweaty and stick this under your vest, it will make you very cold very fast and even start to make you shiver.

    This is what officers need after those intense foot races with fleet of foot perpetrators riding back to the precint. Because I would imagine that it will get real hot especially in California, Neveda, and those other intensely heated states.

    AZ an AZ cop, heat is a big issue...it seems like a good idea. Also I have found that a flat blue-ice packet really works wonders under the vest when frozen. Tadaa! Sometimes the simplest answers are the best. Price: one dollar.

    I have caught a good bit of flak over this wonderful invention by my co-workers, but they have all changed their minds and begged me to let them use it after they have worked a major wreck on the interstate in 100 degree heat with 95% humidity. I wish we could get them issued to every vehicle.

    I think I would have to get permission to tint my windows to 5% before I would be seen with this "life support system" hanging out of me. HOWEVER - I am one of those individuals who can sweat in a snowstorm (proven fact) so this contraption seems to be the ideal thing, especially with body armor and 30 lbs of duty gear to haul around. I just hope I can pull off looking as "cool" as the guy modeling it in the picture. - Can you imagine trying to pursue someone on foot without being able to get unhooked fast enough - hauling ass down the block with a vacuum cleaner hose attached to you...?!!!

    I would recommend this product to everyone, no matter how silly it looks. A couple deputies in my department had it, and I was reluctant to by it, but did anyway. Now I would not trade this thing at all. It is hands down a great product for the hot/humid weather.

    I found out about this product in my POLICE magazine over 6 months ago. I told a deputy I did a ride along with and the next thing I know the department is on the news cuz the whole department started getting them. Many officers commented on how it helps to keep their body cool in between stops and it helps limit the smell caused from sweating (which I'm sure many wives appreciate:)). It also is a good system for those officers who refuse to wear a vest because of the heat, well they no longer have that excuse!

    Working in the AZ heat this would really be helpful. However BEWARE.... Like others have said going from extreme heat to cooling your core temp is VERY dangerous. Try using the lowest cool setting and working your way colder. You can pass out.

    At first glance this product appears alittle korney but putting function before fashion I would think that on a hot day it may be just what the doctor ordered. My only concern would be getting in a foot pursuit, having it not break away, and dragging that hose down the street

    This looks like it could actually work. It is so simple I wonder why it hasn't been thought of before. It is hard to tell from the photo but it looks as though the tubing could get in the way of driving. I would have to reserve my opinion until I tried it. Where can you get it?

    I like it. Alabama is hot as hades in the summer, and this thing made last summer more bearable. Other guys bought one after trying mine out. A lifesaver if you have to be outside your car for a while, you hang it outside the window for a quick cool-down while still outside the car.
    Oh, works in the winter-time also. I don't know if it will fit a Charger vent yet, though I will find out in a week or so. Oh, lots of guys said they made one of these at home, but it broke. That is why you buy the real thing.

    Like many, I thought this to be a useless tool. One of the officers in my platoon got it and used it during one of those 95 degree days with 110% humidity and he was able to restore his body temp to a comfortable temp.

    A flaw would be the massive size of the portion that hooks into your vest. The vest already chokes you when you enter the car...now you you have an add four inches of constriction. If you have to exit the vehicle in a hurry, the insert is too awkward. The vacuum hose is too stiff and cumbersome.

    I am trying to put together the same device from parts at Lowe's or Home Depot for less than $60 after shipping and handling.
