I've searched here but so far haven't seen any discussion regarding this...so wanted to see if anyone had suggestions.
I'm a noob to steadicam - always been fascinated/curious about it but it was only within the last 6 months or so (after someone I know bought a rig) that I was able to start getting some hands-on with one - a very humbling experience.
Now to the main part of my question. I'm sure that it's due to a combination of the additional weight, movement, and lack of airflow beneath the vest - I find even after a short 10-20 minute session I get extraordinarily sweaty. I get fairly sweaty when doing normal handheld work, too - I think my body just likes to stay cool, but with the whole steadicam rig on it's a different ball game. (I should also mention this is all indoors in an air-conditioned space).
Aside from downing some ice water right before, during & after / and having extra shirts - does anyone have suggestions on keeping cool or managing excessive sweat?
