As weird as this apparatus looks, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that it’s actually not a bad idea. The $50 “CoolCop” is basically a length of vacuum-like hose that goes from a car’s air conditioning vent on one end and clips to a police officer’s bullet-proof vest on the other end. Those vests are hot, I tell you! Well, I don’t tell you, actually. Not much need for a blogger to wear a bullet-proof vest… yet.
From the product page:
The CoolCop dash attachment attaches easily into the air conditioning vent. The soft vinyl vest attachment fits comfortably between your vest and undershirt. Cool air is then delivered under your vest to keep you cool, dry and comfortable. Close the additional air vents and adjust the temperature on the a/c unit as needed.
There are two models available; one for a Crown Victoria and a universal one that’ll fit an Impala. Now if only they’d make a civilian model that attached to my belt buckle, I’d be able to keep the downstairs nice and cool all summer long.
