It’s 90° up in this bitch! Working in the heat doesn’t usually bug me. I lived in Florida for 13 years, if that doesn’t kill you, nothing will! However, they came up with these new vests for us that include icepack pockets. They needed to be tried out and I was guinea pig #1. Ok, soo…ice packs felt good…for 2.5 hours..and then they, well…they melted..as they do. The real problem, is that the vests are much thicker than the mesh ones we usually wear and that makes you hotter, unless the ice packs are in…and then, you are cooler..but, you feel like you are wearing Kevlar…cause 4 ice packs are kinder heavy dude!
I don’t want to upset anybody but, these vest are probably not going to be popular with my young cart guys. Eep!
I do think they will do well in winter..cause those thicker vests mean warmer vests for snow days.
I hope my manager (who adores me by the way!) Isn’t too disappointed. She was really excited about these. 😢
