Hi,

Coming in this weekend for the Packers/Lions. Born and raised in Texas. Ive seen snow a few times(lol), so Im not going to freeze to death, I just want to be prepared.

I was told to layer up, underarmour type, then long johns, then jeans and long sleeve shirt, then sweater, then ski pants and jacket. Good gloves, etc. What about my head, skull cap deal with the fleece flap that you can pull down to cover your face/neck cover it, or do I need to go Elmer Fudd style?

Im sure this is hilarious to yall up north.

I'm not sure what you're tolerance for cold is.. but I'd think you could skip the ski pants.
Lambeau has stadium seating and the few games I went to, while it was super cold waiting for game time... once in the stadium, it wasn't too bad (you sit so close together, body heat keeps you warm.)
Have a great time and GO PACK!!!

only being out of WI for 4 years, i've already acclimated to warmth and notice i get colder easier then when i was up there. So for someone from the south who isnt used to it the temps could feel colder then to locals.
I'd agree on layers, but as the game is at night and with possible flurries, i'd also say better to be safe then sorry since no sun to help warm you up.

one trick i used when sitting still in tree stands in cold weather, was take the little hand warmer packets and put them by my lower back. Something about warming the blood as it flows seemed to help. And note usually the 2 spots to get colder quicker--hands and feet. And my thought was it's always easier to take something off, then sit shivering as you didnt have enough on....

enjoy the game!

Thats the thing about feet. 99% of what i wear is tennis shoes, and most of those are made so that a squirrel fart goes right through them. They are engineered specifically to let air in and out.

I think Im going to have to pack up my steel toes. I wear a 16, so i cant buy something cheap just for the game, no such thing as cheap 16's.

Didn't realize it's a night game.
Double up on the socks?

perhaps battery powered socks, or the smaller handwarmers in the shoes as well if you have room. of course if it's more then flurries and all you have on are sneakers..... guess if you have enough WI beverage in you then you wont feel how cold and wet your feet really are lol (JK, as alcohol does give a false sense of warmth)
