I had the pleasure of stomping around the neighborhood yesterday in ten-degree weather, -4 with wind chill. To put it rather mildly it’s not fun. However, flannel-lined jeans I got for x-mas a few years ago lessened the shock quite a bit.
I donned no less than two pairs of socks, my trusty boots, a long-sleeved shirt, a sweatshirt jacket, shop coat, wooly hat, fur-lined gloves and of course, these flannel jeans. Surprisingly enough my legs were fine. Eventually the wife’s car was chipped out, the neighbor’s vehicle jumped out of its winter slumber, and “Ebay,” the dog from down the street, was found rooting about in the field across the way.
After spending a little over an hour and a half outside taking care of icy business, the return to heated atmosphere was a welcome one. I attribute walking in with actual legs instead of ice stalks to the pants. For around $30, if you need some cold weather pants, I highly recommend them.
Though this does make me curious — what do you folks up north normally wear on your lower half for cold-weather excursions?
