it upsets my wife no end that in the middle of winter when its pouring with rain, howling gales and single digit to minus temps i walk around in shorts T shirt and Jandles. she wants the fire raging and i sit there in my shorts sweating because its so hot. i dont feel the cold much at all but the heat saps the life out of me. mid teens to mid 20s i have a permanent sweat sheen and thats just walking around. any form of exercise its a wake up call to the sweat beast.

I just mounted a CBreeze on my erg and it is great at keeping a cool stream blasting me in the face while I row.
My wife uses the erg too but hates the CBreeze as it "makes it too cold." I still sweat buckets using it but it does feel nice!
