Zentek Coat, Vest and Mat Review

I don't usually do reviews of products that I have bought, but I really like the Zentek products.
My parents had their 40th wedding anniversary this month and I bought my Mom a Zentek vest.  She is a long distance runner and runs in all weather. 
The Zentek products are supposed to keep you warm when it is cold and cool when it is hot.  I don't really understand how it works, you can read the information on their website Zentek clothing.  They have some neat pictures that show the vest working.

So I gave the vest to my Mom and she still hasn't worn it running!  Why?  Because she is wearing it all the time and she's afraid it might get sweaty if she runs in it.  She has slept in it every night, except one, since I gave it to her.  The one night she didn't sleep in it?  She didn't sleep.  She was tossing and turning all night.  It's MAGIC!!  It keeps you at the perfect temperature.

She also worries that the black color might attract the sun and heat up.  So maybe next I will have to get her a light colored vest.  Then we could test it out and see what happens.  But it will be a while before I can get her another one!  They are expensive.  But worth the price!

So I of course also got Tibby a coat and 2 of the crate mats.  Tibby's not a huge fan of the coat, but she puts up with it.  She's a dog,  it's a coat - nothing personally to the coat, I'm sure.

The crate mats will take some time.  Right now she is sure they are EVIL.  New and evil.  Sorry mats, nothing personal, just the way Tibby is.  "Scary new things!"

The color is more like the indoor pictures.  I think it's really pretty.  The coat, vest and mats are VERY well made.  I was extremely impressed.  Also, shipping was amazingly fast - like the next day.
They had a special running on their facebook page: a $100 gift certificate for $75 dollars.  I saved like $80 on all of the items that I ordered.  Sweet deal!  And my Mom loves her vest!  That alone was worth it :)

Is it keeping Tibby cool? Rugby hates the hot summer weather... I am tempted to get him one!
