3. The Use of Sleeves
When you’re in a hot environment, our human impulse is to remove layers to cool down. This is due to our bodies sweating due to overheating. This is a good reaction most of the time, but when you’re in the wild? Not so much. One of the key ways to survive when lost in a warmer environment is to keep those long sleeves on.
The reason? When you sweat, you’re losing water from your body that is being used to cool you down. With open skin, you’re allowing all that sweat to evaporate. However, the sleeves or clothing, in general, will catch it. Losing sweat or water from your body quickly can lead to faster dehydration symptoms or heatstroke. So leave the clothes on rather than remove them!
