I'm not sure if this will work for you but one idea we use at work (outside in AZ temperatues 90-100+ wearing bullet proof vests) is to slip those reusable freezer packs between our undershirts and our body armor. It does a decent job of keeping the core cooled. That said, it does not last long but it is definitely better than nothing. Perhaps you could put one under the weight vest?
