Coolware Personal Cooling
I don't know about you, but already over here the spring has announced itself as a mid-summer: soaring temperatures, blistering sun and no wind or rain.

It looks like it's going to be a very hot summer, and although riding your motorcycle is fantastic when it's hot, it's the in-between moments that aren't so cool, literally. Stopping at lights, toll booths, pedestrian crossing, with a very hot engine, heat rises and this means that your body temperature will rise quickly, and as we all know, you need to keep your head cool while riding a motorcycle (in more than one way).

When I saw this device, I immediately thought that it could be very useful on a motorcycle. Called the Coolware Personal Cooling System, it sits on your neck, blowing cooled air onto it, thereby keeping your head cool.

Coolware Personal Cooling
You could of course spring for a full fledged air-conditioning unit on your motorcycle, but they'd be a bit more expensive, and will take up space on your bike (see one by clicking here Open link in a new window). Personal air-conditioning units like the one in the link only make sense if you live in a place with a lot of hot air, like the desert or the White House.

This Coolware unit holds two small water tanks used for the cooling process, weighs 12 ounces (without the water) and is powered by one single AA battery. The water will last between 2 and 4 hours before you need to refill it. The battery will last 20 hours.

Sounds like an interesting idea. It should fit under a helmet, depending on the helmet. Anyone tried this?

Cost: US$34.95
