COOLSHIRT SYSTEMS will produce HARDSHELL Version of our BP2 Mobile COOLING Backpack allowing for rapid decontamination spray down and re-use.

Responding to requests of our customers we will produce a ABS Hard-shell Back Pack featuring an integrated solar recharge panel version of our Mobile Cool BP2 System that will allow for rapid decontamination and re-use. The system will be powered via Lithium Ion AC & Solar rechargeable 8hr battery. The system will also feature a hydration bladder that will piggyback the cooling feature to provide COOL fluids to the wearer. This system will pump the CDC recommended 5% Chlorine decontamination solution thru our LCG hooded vest to provide torso and head cooling for up to 3.5hrs .
