If you look for motor cycle cooling vests you'll find lots ranging from $40 to $60. Go through a safety supplier and they are 4 times or more. I wore them while working in a 30C plus machining plant. Without one after a 10 hour shift I was spent but with I was comfortable after I found them and bought my own. They work best if there is air movement so a decent fan blowing on you helps a lot if inside. I found them good for a couple summers before the water absorbing jell wasn't effective anymore. You are damp underneath but it is better than hot sweat. I don't know what they would be like to wear in a dusty shop. There are bandanas and hats that work on the same principals too.
