What do people wear to play disc golf in the cold?

Postby RonRazz » Thu Oct 12, 2006 11:11 pm

Im just wondering if Im missing something Im freezing my butt off playing in this weather. Thats with a compression shirt, long sleeve cotton shirt, sweat shirt, compression shorts, clim-a-trol shorts, and wind breaker pants.

I have poor circulation in my hands and just nine holes in to playing and I lose most of the feeling in my fingers, gloves barely help, anyone use the heat packs? What am i missing?

:idea:
How about a hat?

I've tried the heat packs and they do work, but I find walking really fast works even better.

Go to Gander Mountain and get a pair of the polar fleece long underwear to get you started. A good set of gortex boots will also keep you warmer and dry. I too have very poor circulation in my hands and after 7 years of working outside through the winter have figured it out. The hand warmer packets are your best friends. I usually wear a long sleeve shirt, a tall neck zip up polar fleece and then a good thick hooded sweatshirt on top. Menards sells gloves with short fingers that are cut off and a mitten attachment that you can pull over the top and the same for your thumb. Get your hand warmer packets out on your way to the course and put them on the defroster of your car. Those packets get started and warm much faster that way. Drop a hand warmer packet in the backhand of your left glove and one in your hoody pocket. When you aren't throwing keep your right hand glued to that hand warmer packet in your pocket, and when it is really cold throw your right glove on with another packet in there. It's only a buck for a pack of the warmers and in my opinion that is cheap to stay warm. I also try to take the warmer out of my pocket and shake it every couple of holes, it keeps the packet warmer. I hope this helps.
