forecast is a high of 69 with rain. How do you avoid missing
the Georgia versus UCF due to poor weather conditions? You dress
appropriately. Layering is the key in this type of
weather. There are many different combination you can go by,
but here are a couple of suggestions.
Layer: A silkweight base layer like Capilene 1 would be ideal to keep you
warm enough and still wick any sweat that might accumulate during
your cheering frenzies.
- Second Layer: A light
fleece can be highly beneficial in a situation where it isn’t
freezing cold, but you will be doing a lot of standing or
sitting. It is good to have a jacket that will be well
fitted, like the Patagonia R2 jacket for Men and
Women. This jacket is lightweight and not bulky, but still
offers up a good amount of warmth. Another option is the North Face Pumori jacket. It is
a very basic, but warm fleece jacket with an excellent price point
- Third Layer: A lightweight rain
shell and pants (your team’s colors preferably) is a must in stormy
weather, where the temperature is around the 60’s. You won’t
want something that will weigh you down, so a thin shell will
protect you from the rain and not get in your way. Make sure
the hood is adjustable, so you have your peripheral view. We
have several different lightweight rain shells for this very
purpose. Try the North Face Venture Jacket or the Mountain Hardwear Cohesion
Jacket. You can also refer to our previous blog on
rain shell options.
necessities: – Socks: Standing
around doesn’t give your feet a good chance to warm up, especially
when it is raining. Whether you are going to wear a gore-tex
hiking boot or just rubber rain boots, you will need a nice, warm
sock nestled in your shoes. We suggest a Smartwool sock, medium cushion
hiking. This way your sock will dry quickly if you do get it
wet, but it will still retain its warming abilities.
- Hat: The wind can whip
around the Liberty Bowl pretty fiercely, so whether you are cold
natured or naturally warm, you will still need a hat that covers
your ears. You lose most of your body heat through the top of
your head. Keep it in with a wool or fleece hat.
