Just ordered a DD hooded sweatshirt, doubt I throw discs in it though. Will probably get new windpants and some sort of performance undershirt for the cold.

Ima layer it up like every year. I put cutoff sweatshirt sleeves as cuffs around the bottom of my pants. It keeps the bottom of my pants dry and clean for those drop-of-the-hat rounds in the snow/sleet. wool socks, plastic bags in the shoes, thermals, sweatshirts, a scarf if need be and those giant factory issued leather gloves that are super warm and easy to take off and put on. i look like a real goon but it gets the job done.

If it is so cold that I have to wear this, I doubt I will be throwing many discs.
This is what I wear when I am camping and it is -17 out.

Whats a good pair of waterproof hiking boots? Bought a pair of "waterproof" Merrells and first round with just a slight rain, and my feet were soaked! Biggest croch of **** ever, my standard gym shoes were more waterproof than these Merrells. And no I wasn't wearing shorts, I was wearing ski pants. Any suggestions?

Asolo makes a good boot. Had mine for three seasons and they still hold up great. I use them for BWCA trips and for winter golf. Will be buying another pair whenever they break down (which won't be any time soon).

Here in NC I gear up with a thick sweatshirt usually. And I'll probably be rocking' jeans instead of shorts. Hope you guys in the cold places enjoy the winter.
