I have a running background as a coach and I would sometimes have athletes wear ice vest prior to long distance track race. No matter how many fans, I just can’t get cool. I’ve had success with Velotoze version of cooling vest. veloToze Cooling Vest - Includes Cycling Vest with pockets for Cooling Packs
There are other brands and I’m sure that they would serve the same purpose. I’ve actually worn it on a few outdoor rides. It’s not too bulky and cooling effect last about 1.5 hours.
If you just moved into a new house and will be there for a while - I’d absolutely bite the bullet on a heat pump / mini-split AC if a window-unit wouldn’t work. Just need it to be an outside wall with space to mount the unit and run the hoses through to the outside.
