Iceskin clothing: Does it really work?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

iceskin.com

 

Has anyone tried this shirt?  If so, does it really work?

 

I saw the advertisement, and I was wondering if anyone has actually tried this shirt?  At $69.99 per shirt, I don't want to find out the hard way that this is just a gimmick.

 

I would appreciate any feedback from actual users.

Looks interesting.

I just ordered the shirt @Yukari .  I will sweat in it and write a review. :-)

I'll be watching for it too.  Did you get a hat too?  If so, lets hear if that does anything for you.

 

It's been BRUTALLY hot down here this year.  I'm ready to try anything.  Can't wait for November!

I would love to know whether they actually work.

If it does, I would like to order a few myself.

 

I'll be checking regularly for your review.

Is it some kind of improvement to the "Dri-fit" type of shirts that have been around awhile? I know that those don't work very well if they aren't tucked in. they seem to need to be touching the skin to work effectively. Untucked and flapping around doesn't work.

It is impregnated with minerals to produce a cooling affect.  We'll see if it works.

 

IceSkin™ is engineered through a multi-layered, three-dimensional, knitting process. By combining a high percentage of natural jade mineral with our CoolSkin® microfibre technology, the MST process transforms fibres, finer than a human hair into filaments with unique performance capabilities.

I just got in from hitting balls and it is approaching 100 degrees.  The shirt kept me much cooler than other golf shirts I own.  Sadly, it took almost four weeks to get my shirt from the day I ordered it.

 

After 18 days, I contacted the company at their 800 number and was told they would look into the situation and get back with me.  A few days later I got an email saying there had been a delay in shipping, but it had "shipped last week."  I requested and received a tracking number.  From that I learned that it had not  "shipped last week."  It did not ship until AFTER I contacted them.  I don't know what the real story is, but I wonder if I would have the shirt today had I not contacted them.

 

I haven't tried the hat.  It's white and I can see it getting dirty/ugly fast.  I tried the cooling towel at home and it does get cool.  IceSkin is on to something with this cooling technology.  Of course, the cost is greater than what I have paid for any other golf shirt.  Still, I may buy another; I'm waiting for them to offer more colors.

 

I am 5'10" and weigh 210.  Usually, I wear a Large or XL, depending upon the type of shirt and the manufacturer.  I ordered an XL and it fits okay, though it is not as roomy as my other golf shirts.  On me, a Large size shirt from IceSkin would be "skin tight."  Keep this in mind if you decide to order.

I've got 5 or 6 dri fit shirts and I like them but it's also not particularly muggy in Colorado or Idaho.  I leave them untucked all the time and haven't noticed anything bad about it.

 

 

I would try one of these ice shirts maybe but $70 for 1 shirt is just nonsense imo.  :-P

Thanks for the update.  Based on your review of its performance, I think I will give it a try.  I will make sure not to expect a quick delivery, though.

I just got mine too.  I was supposed to get the hat and towel.  I will have to call.  I haven't used it yet, but will write a full review.

Welcome to TST, and thanks a lot for giving us that feedback.  At first I was a little worried since this was your first post and it involved a product but obviously you are a real person and not a shill (yeah sometimes we get those).  Anyway it is great that you shared our experience and I know it was appreciated.  I hope you'll stick around and participate in some of the other threads.  Lots of good folks here and tons of free instructional material and feedback.

I've ordered mine almost two weeks ago, and I still haven't received anything yet.

@Iceman123 Can't you guys do something about shipping the order out as soon as possible?

@Iceman123 Thanks for taking care of my order.  I just received an email with the tracking number for my order.

 

Appreciate your prompt attention!

I like the website design. I would be interested to hear everyone's thoughts once they use the shirt.
