I just shot a personal best -18 this morning in 6 degree wind chill. Three discs: medium Ascent, soft Ibex, seasoned SS Wizard.

Went out at 8 am. Forecast was for 8 degrees, but it was actually a balmy 10 degrees. I was very comfy in 3 warm layers and a hand warmer inside my "quarterback style" hand warmer. The key is that there was only a slight breeze, probably a wind chill around 0.

I love the use of balmy LOAL.

The wind chill yesterday morning was single digits I think. If not it was close. I've played with the air temp approaching zero and wind chills well into negative numbers.

Truth be told I prefer the cold over the 90 & 90 summer heat.

Cold temps don't really stop me. I used to cross country ski back in high school so I'm use to really cold temps. I really only stop playing when the course is snow covered. Don't care to look for discs in the snow.

I tend to not play if its below 20 deg's. My hands snap and pop and my body just doesnt move right in the colder temps. I like to ice fish when it gets that cold..

im as addicted to disc golf as they come. i can see throwing as hell is freezing over. today and yesterday were pretty cold but its all in the layers, convenience and comfortability, a balance between limiting restrictive layers but most importantly covering the vital areas from exposure. i find the easier to take off and put back on gloves the most effective. i use fatass leather industrial type gloves that are super warm and convenient.

proper attire is just as important as disc choice come winter.
