Agree. The other day I was driving to a sports centre in my T-shirt and shorts and I could very clearly feel the cooling effect.

I can't really say, for definite, but I would say about 15 mins. I can't say that I I use the facility much, but then again we havent had that much hot weather since I have had the car.

You are right you need light clothing to feel the benefit. And you need to use in conjunction with air conditioning.
