Cooling Vest


A Cooling Vest is standard among MechWarriors of the Inner Sphere. It operates on principles similar to the Cooling Suit, heavier but offering nearly the same amount of protection against heat buildup. Nearly all of them are also woven with bullet-resistant material, providing to wearer some degree of protection against small arms fire, though the coolant system itself is still vulnerable to being disabled.[1]
