Default Staying cool at WB

As we all know, Williams Brice can be rather warm during day games. I plan on staying cool this year though. Tired of sweating! I googled cooling shirt vest and found a variety of products. Ended up ordering a Stacool Undervest ($210) thats supposed to keep cool for around 3 hours per set of reusable frozen gel packs. It comes with two sets. Havent tried it yet but it looks promising. After opening it and checking it out it appears to be of good quality. Theres one called a veskimo that Id love to have but its pricey at around 500 or so. It actually circulates ice water through tubes in your shirt. Sounds nice huh?! Anyhow, just curious if anyone else has tried to beat the Columbia heat and how?

Not for me it isnt. I flash back to the home opener against ECU last year in September. It was smoldering out and HUMID as can be. I know it was a blowout and all but the stadium emptied out a lot earlier than it normally would bc of the heat. I think the score ended up 49-6. My niece had a football come thru the uprights that game and bounce off her forehead when the kickers were warming up. I feel kinda bad but I laughed! But anyhow in the lower bowl it was awful that day. I may take a spray bottle too lol. The cooler the better!

One of the biggest things you can do is to get a wide brim hat to shade your face and neck. A baseball cap won't cut it. The wardrobe nazi's on here may not approve, but it makes a huge difference in your comfort level. Especially for those of use with tickets on the east side of the stadium.

Some company, I can't remember if its Columbia or North Face has advertised shirts made out of material that is supposed to get cool when it gets wet, like with sweat. It's some kind of chemical reaction. Pretty good idea if it works.

Alcohol dehydrates you. You may feel like you're "beating the heat", but you're really just making it worse. I assume you guys already know that and are just trying to be funny, but figured I'd point that out just in case.

I've got to agree with this. I think I indulged once before an early season daytime game while I was a student, and that was it. I thought I wasn't going to make it. Heat and alcohol don't mix well AT ALL IMO.

Best thing is to wear cotton, light colors, and loose fit clothing. Also, hydrate starting in thursday. Scientifically speaking, drinking alcohol is not the best thing for you if you sayre going to be in the best and sweat. Caffeine isn't the best for your either in those situations.

Anybody ever tried one of those things you wear around your neck that's supposed to keep you cool? Not any type of towel thing, but an actual plastic device. Just curious how effective they are; I've thought about getting one for a while and never have.
