Just ordered a few things from Amazon, so we'll see how this goes. I want to do some fishing (where there isn't any shade) and I would be killed in the sun in about 30 min. I'm trying out this vest too as it seems to have generally good reviews. Chill-Its 6665 Evaporative Cooling Vest - Safety Vests - Amazon.com

Thanks! Can I get some battery acid for my eyes now? Looked at that for 1/100th of a second and I will pay money to never see it again.

It almost makes me regret my joke! almost. Blake definitely wins today's internet.

The other thing we've kicked around are one of those misters (water sprayers) in fan or awning form. Not sure if it would feel good or just more damp.

I think Timmy "aqua man" has said misters.

Traveled to Vietnam for a month and it was a bit hot and humid.
I purchased a few items from LL Bean that were fast drying if nothing else, one pair of "convertible" pants, and some shorts that are fantastic at wicking moisture.
Agree on the neck wrap. They work great.
Frankly, long as my shirt is a little long so it can be left un-tucked I stay cooler.

And Blake - that was harsh... oh so harsh.

We've used the misters on our fans outside. Indeed they work, but since we don't have any really expensive ones, you might find yourself wet after too long in front of them. In the summer, I don't care. They do work quite well.

Excessive sweating is called hyperhydrosis and is pretty common. Google search it. There are prescription deodorants and even surgeries to eliminate the nerves that cause the sweating.

I have similar problems, a little weight loss helps as well.

For me it was the same back in college when I didn't have any extra. Probably could stand to lose 15 lbs though now.

We have the standing mister fan, but I found something that will work for people who dry camp.

Search for a video about "5 gallon bucket air conditioners" (no time to find it for ya...gonna be late for work) but it works on 12V, five gallon bucket, some short pieces of PVC, a small 12v fan and ice. Easy to assemble. With the Styrofoam liner for the bucket the ice lasts for HOURS.

Not to jump straight to the panic wagon, but you may want to have your doc check your thyroid function.

I was a heavy sweater in the summertime. Turned out my thyroid was running 50% over what it should have been.

I had radioiodine thyroid ablation done and have significantly reduced my heat tolerance issues.
