CoolJamaz promise to cool you down while you sleep by absorbing the sweat from your skin. It's marketed toward women suffering with night sweats related to menopause, but is for anyone dealing with the hot flashes at night.

"Here they are," says our first tester Sandy.

Sandy Lingle, 49, of Jonesboro models one style of the new Cool Jamaz.  She's one of two women I asked to wear the so-called moisture-wicking PJ's.

Like Sandy, 48-year-old Roberta Burnham suffers night sweats brought on my menopause. Each welcomes any product that can ease the problem.  Neither uses any kind of hormone replacement therapy.

"Every night, I wake up soaking wet. It's part of life, but not fun," says Roberta.

For the last two weeks, both Sandy and Roberta wore the Cool Jamaz.  Roberta has the shorts and tank; Sandy has the capri set.  At first glance, the PJ's look a little thin, but they promise "a good night's sleep is no sweat."

So, Does it Work?

"It actually dries. I'm not waking up to sticky clothes stuck to me. It's so much better," says Roberta.

"They've gone down a lot since I've worn these pajamas, and I really like 'em. It absorbs the sweat. I don't know how they work, but they work," says Sandy.

To be sure, the women also switched back and forth between the CoolJamaz and their own pajamas during the two-week testing.  They still report success with the Cool Jamaz.

"Less sweat and a lot cooler and that means more sleep," says Sandy.

Here's the thing.....to get the moisture wicking material to *still work* you have to launder with care, being careful not to use any kind of fabric softener on them.  Cool Jamaz come in different styles and a few colors, but they also retail between $20 and $75.  Both women say it's worth the price.  They each say they slept a whole lot better with the Cool Jamaz.

"A minus," says Sandy.

So, it is sweet dreams for the Cool Jamaz, and time to put this Does it Work test...to rest.

You can only buy CoolJamaz online; they're not sold in the Heartland for now, but the supplier says she's talking with local hospitals to see if they can be sold in gift shops.  To order, head to the CoolJamaz website at http://cooljamaz.com.
