I love to climb/hike all the hills/trails/mountains here in south-central Alaska. My most enjoyable time is in the winter and 20F or lower. I am a big believer in layering, with fleece and wool being my buddies. Windpro or GorTex are good friends too Somewhere along the line I must have frostbit my belly because that has become a problem, even at temps around +45F. Every time I come in, my belly is beefy red in color and needs to be "warmed", usually by a hot shower or bath. No other part of my body gets cold or shows any signs of cold injury.
What I am looking for is any idea of a product that only keeps the belly warm. If I put too many layers, the rest of me sweats really bad. I have used a neoprene back wrap, and that helps the cold issue but is not comfortable. I have tried a couple of different vests, but they really have not helped. I could make something I guess, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if any solutions have been found. Thanks in advance!
