The Cold Shoulder calorie burning vest is a vest powered by CryoMax. Designed for fat loss, it helps you use the power of cold to encourage fat loss. With this vest, you can wear the cold packs under your clothes without anyone noticing.

Wearing it regularly teaches your body to go from hot to cold to hot all the time.

Total Cost Breakdown

Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page:


  • Scientifically Developed

    It was Professor Wayne B. Hayes, who is a NASA scientist in addition to being a professor working at the University of California, who developed the vest. He studied the effects that cold exposure had on calories burned and realized there could be ways for normal people to increase the amount of calories they burn.

  • Two Designs

    You can buy this unit in two great designs, both of which are unisex. Classic 2.0 vest looks like a traditional vest, form fitting. The classic design is more stylish, can be worn under your clothes, and is tailored for a tighter fit.

    New Pro Vest has many snaps across the shoulders and the front. Inside each vest is a CryoMax reusable four hour cold pack. This means that you can wear each vest for up to four hours before you have to freeze the units. While the classic design is more stylish, can be worn under your clothes, it is tailored for a tighter fit.

    The pro vest is thicker, comes in a one size fits all design, adjusts easily, and has a double sided or reversible design to adjust for coldness.

  • Popular

    These vests are featured in many magazines including Women’s Running, Men’s Fitness, Shape, Men’s Journal, ABC News, The Atlantic, and Oz.

  • Recovery and Fat Burning

    You can use this vest not only for burning fat but for immediate muscle recovery. The fat melts off, without exercise or questionable supplements.

  • Comfortable

    The vest is comfortable, functional, and stylish such that you can wear it under your clothes without people knowing you are being exposed to mild cold. You can wear it while you are sitting, resting, or watching television. After the first few times wearing it you won’t even notice it is on.

How it's Different from Competitors

This vest has a points of cold technology which uses non-toxic, non-latex materials to keep your body cold. The technology absorbs your body heat without interfering in the natural processes of the body, thus encouraging your body to work harder, burn more calories, all to raise your core temperature. Cold Shoulder Vest's company claims that wearing this vest each day burns between 500 and 1000 calories.

How It Works

Purportedly, this is the most advanced cold therapy on the market. You do not need special pills, diets, or exercise to burn fat. When you first jump into a swimming pool, you feel the immediate cold.

That is because the water is often twenty to twenty five degrees colder than your body. For the first few seconds the temperature difference can be felt strongly. Eventually though, your body reacts immediately to the cold by increasing your metabolism and increasing your calories burned in order to get back to the normal 98.6 degrees. Soon after, you forget about the difference. This is how the vest feels. Claims state that you will feel cold when you first put it on, but a moment later your body will compensate by increasing the temperature inside. You will forget you are wearing it.

Fat Tissue

  1. White and Brown

    Each person has two types of fat tissue. White fat is the first type, the kind often associated with big stomachs or hips, the kind that circulates into the blood to fuel the muscles. Brown fat is the kind used to generate heat by the body. The colder you are, the more your brown fat disappears.

    Scientists now know that cold can trigger your body into converting white fat into that brown fat. When white fat becomes incredibly cold, it converts into a type of brown fat. This type of brown fat, called beige fat, can be burned in order to generate heat inside the body.

  2. White to Beige

    Changing white fat into brown fat and subsequently burning it can help protect against obesity. It forces the body to burn extra calories rather than converting them into more fat. Belly fat in particular, the most challenging type of fat to lose, has been scientifically shown to convert into beige fat in the winter time when people are often colder.

    For this reason, most people crave fatty foods in the winter because more of the white fat calories are being burned to keep the body warm rather than powering the muscles. That said, mimicking the cold of winter can actually help do this at home, any time of the year.


  • Harder for Obese

    The same studies that have shown white belly fat can be converted into brown fat during the cold also showed that obese people cannot convert their white fat as effectively as slim people. Inflammation can actually hinder the conversion of white fat to beige fat.

  • Only Stomach and Chest

    The location of the ice packs in this vest means you cannot target fat beyond just the stomach, chest, or back. You will instead have to use spare ice packs for that if you need it. Also left unreached by the vest are the arms, which you cannot target with the vest.


  • Cold at First

    It is still a cold vest. While you are perfectly able to wear it while you are doing other things like sitting down or lying on a couch reading. Bear in mind that you will feel cold at your core while doing so. Covering up with extra layers or blankets only interferes with the process of your body naturally warming up.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Staying Cold

    Another way to burn extra calories is simply to be cold. Turning down your thermostat and staying slightly colder in your home, around 62 degrees, will force your body to do the same thing, burning more calories.

    You do not need to put an ice pack to your fatty areas for thirty minutes per day. Instead, you can just keep your body cold. The reason for this is that so much of the time people spend is indoors, where it is often overheated. This means that the body is not as naturally attuned to burning calories in order to stay warm. Training the body to do this will help burn more calories regularly.
