long johns then a good pair of sweatpants then pb pants, good winter boots, toque usually a long sleeve shirt under my jersey and if it's really frosty I just screw the jersey and pb pants all together and play in a snowmobile suit. With that said once it's to be sub 0 playing outdoors really loses it's appeal. Best weather I find is fall or late winter/early spring. personally Not super chilly but cool enough that with layers you can run around and not be a sweaty pig at the end of the day. Not to mention winter paint up here hurts like a mother. I wish the indoor near me hadn't closed that was my home field winter. Now it looks like I'll seriously consider packing it in for the season once the weather drops off to say freezing or slightly below.

To be fair, though I used old school long johns and extra clothes until my inlaws bought me the good stuff for xmas

I wallowed in the blood and mud with All the other pigs

Function over looks
Common sense is the key here. If you get wet, swap your clothes, if you don't have a warm, dry spot to take a break, don't go out at all unless you really gear up.

Walking without rhythm
Avoid Cotton at all costs in the cold.
It is a terrible insulator. If it gets wet, it gets cold and doesn't dry...if it gets cold enough it will freeze to your skin...
Dress in layers. Wool, fleece, polypropaline...Easy to regulate your heat that way. Take things off when you go to play, put them on when you go sit for a rest.
Take care of your feet. Wool or synthetic socks. Lots of extras. Good boots, waterproof if possible...
Drink lots of water. It may not be hot and you may not feel thirsty...but you are still loosing water and need to replenish.
Eat lots of food, carbs and protine. Your body needs the energy to keep warm let alone exert energy to play. Feed.
Gloves to play in. Mits to rest in. Extras.
Hat. Toque. Scarf...
HPA, Mec, and lube.

Halos don't like the cold , the draw so much from the battery and when it's cold it can't put out enough juice
Also don't lube your guns. Fe lube gets thick and sticky
And wear Walmart bags or paint bags between sock layers to keep your feet dry

Well, we were going to play this saturday. Looks like it is going to be a field work day though. High of 40. It is snowing a little bit today. Only three people have hpa tanks and the rest of us use CO2. So, a game is kind of out of the question. Sigh.
