Avoiding hypothermia because of sweating
by Linda Wagers

I am a true outdoors nut but have a tendency to sweat BIG TIME with the slightest exertion and find that even the best of wicking materials just cannot keep me dry.
What I do is use a couple of thick terry cloth hand towels and cover both my front and back with them under my first layer of underwear. I have the tops of the towels pulled out at the neck to keep my collars dry and the bottoms tucked into the undies. After having done some activity (ie. hiking, hunting, building a shelter) I simply remove the soaking wet towels leaving a nice dry underlayer without having to strip down to bare skin to replace wet clothing!!
Do you want to safely enjoy the wilderness?
