Prevent your body temperature from getting hypothermia.

Have you ever suddenly felt cold while climbing a mountain?
Why people feel cold suddenly while climbing a mountain, is because loss ratio of body heat largely increases,
when clothes are wet with sweat and heat generating during climbing and they are exposed to the mountain wind in that condition for long hours.
If this condition is sustained long, it can cause hypothermia. Heating stick is kind of alpenstock that protects your body temperature from hypothermia.
