    Greetings Packer fans! I couldnt think of a better place to get some solid advice... how in the world do you keep your FEET warm at the games!?!? Been attending the Ravens games since 1996 and I still havent been able to keep my feet warm in the bitter cold.. probably balmy to you all... Any hints or suggestions!

    Thanks in advance.. and good luck this weekend!

    :) :eek:

    not from green bay, but in school in orono, maine. and this is what we use, and its just as cold here as anywhere else in the winter.

    i like the hunting socks you can get at *****, and those disposable foot warmers work. basically, any kid of winter hunting gear works for me. and i like the bright orange too!!

    In addition to what mike_bat said, also bring a piece of cardboard to put underneath your feet. It actually makes a big difference.

    You go to UMAINE? Nice. I live in the Dedham area...currently working at the University campus in Bangor. I went to all of the Maine Black Bears home games this year (including the disappointing, but Lambeau-like last game of the regular season)...nice to see a nearby Packer's fan on the forums.

    But, in response to the original poster...a nice parka, snow pants, and a green bay wool cap should be fine...a lot of Mainers like to shop at L.L. Bean and Capella's, so try taking a look at their catalogs for winter gear as well.

    Really? That's pretty cool/ironic since its desolate up here, I am actually from NJ so this is a big change up for me. I missed the UNH game, I was in Conn. w/ my team for a couple games. But yea, I didn't think about LL Bean. That's a good call, saved my life last winter :yes:
