It looks as though the Sixsixone corecooler is in very short supply, I recently got two sent from the states, took me ages to find a stockist that had anything other than the youth size left.

Most stockists say out of stock with no date for re supply, some say they are no longer being manufactured.

It is still possible to find the youth size & some small/mediums, but looks as though no larges are left.

Simply Google "sixsixone corecooler" & spend a happy couple of hours trying to find a stockist that has one & will post out of the U.S for a reasonable charge!

I got mine from
https://www.raceprovenmotorsports.com/index.php

A small/medium(one size) should do for all but the largest of people (I'm 14.5"(36cm)neck & about 17"(42.5cm) across my shoulders) & S/M is OK.

Got one for me & one for a friend so we split the 40$ shipping.

They do work as promised. Ours are two years old and have seen plenty of use. worth waiting for.

My GF bought me something similar to this

(Couldn't find a reference to exactly what she bought)

Both she and I were sceptical, but I was most impressed with it in the heat of Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece. I'd seriously look at something bulkier and more effective, like the Core Cooler. It would be great to build the technology into a bike jacket, but I suppose then you'd have the problem of what happens when it rains. Some manufacturer somewhere should try though. Maybe it could be combined with a camel-back type water sack.

Someone's already had a go at a (non-bike) home-made version

Works Extemely Well in the Arizona Summer
 
We use the Core Cooler on our motorcycles, when working in the yard (or anywhere outside), hiking, etc. They're light weight, last all day, and keep us warm, but comfortable unlike some products that make you wet to keep you cool. Temperatures here get to 110+, but so far it's working like a charm.

try writing directly to the factory. that's where and how I got mine. yes, it has been a few years ago, but inquiring of friends who live in medford, they are still in business.

No More Core Coolers
 
I contacted an Australian importer who has advised the Core Cooler is no longer in production. Yopu may be able to find someone with old stock. Sixsixone have some youth sizes available but they don't ship international. Pity.
