        We’ve discussed before in other forums but bears repeating. There is also a chart for wearing body armor (I was always taught add 10 degrees, this one says 5).

        Save it to your phone and commit to memory. OR remember – the darker the urine, the more dehydrated one is (assuming no comorbid factors or use of vitamins)

          Thanks for this. Good when you train in the heat.

                Even though few of us are thinking about cold weather, I’ve seen more dehydration cases in the Arctic.

                So this applies year round! ;-)

                  Remember there are several ways in which the body loses water, not just sweating.

                  See here http://www.actforlibraries.org/how-is-water-gained-and-lost-from-the-body-or-fluid-balance-in-the-body/

                  Ever been camping and awoke to find your sleeping wet from the condensation on the tent ceiling?
