    Adjusting hours when possible so you are not working during the hottest part of the day or at least not working in the sun, helps.

    No questions are stupid, but there are stupid remarks like yours, IMO.

    I wear out quicker than my young help, but finding some shade for a few minutes and water, of course, helps. Advantage of this hot dry weather, no mosquitos so far this year. Irrigated fields normally are just thick with them, not so in the ones we have had to work. Maybe because the wells aren't working if we are there? Duh.

    I have dug mine out and will be using it today!
    I have something similar. Does yours have the bead stuff inside that swells up?

    The website claims of 5-10 hours is bogus IMO. I keep two on hand and swap them out every so often. I left some in a cooler too long and they over-swelled and split some of the stitching.

    They are still better than nothing. You can probably get 5-10 hours if you follow the conditions they did to get 5-10 hours.

    Yes they do have the beads that swell up and no they do not seem to last 5-10.
    I also keep more than one on hand in the cooler on very hot days and rotate them.
    I did accidentally tear one open once, but haven't had a problem with overswelling.

    get a mister and spray yourself as needed.

    even a small fan helps if there is no breeze.

    Not to be a smart ars, just the truth. Don't forget the sun block and plenty of fluids.
