    Do they come in Lumberjack sizes?

    Default Rain pants!

    I have the opposite (converse?) issue. Everything was warm this morning EXCEPT my toes.
    For extra protection, I packed my Goretex rain shorts, but I didn't need them. I find that rain pants or rain shorts work great in the cold and wind.

    For those who want to make their own, I think G-Street Fabrics sells more fabrics for outdoor activities than Joann Fabrics. I don't think they carry Neoprene, but they carry similar stuff. They had a location at 7-Corners that is now closed. According to their web site, the only location left is at Rockville, MD. I am not sure if they have all of their collection online, but here is their Apparel/Polyester collection. Of interest:

    1 - Polar Fleece and Minky, $10/Yard.
    2 - Outerwear, $12-$17/Yard.
    3 - Lycra Nylon, $25/Yard.

    You probably won't save money by making one unit, perhaps if you make more than one item, like socks, and bar mitts. Amazon sells Neoprene fabrics, but you can't feel them before buying them.

    Tania - I got the Showers Pass Skyline pants recently and they are amazing! fleece lined and waterproof front and back but stretchy sides. I can move well in them and they are almost too warm for me when I have tights and compression shorts on underneath.

    ProTip from my GF:

    check out deals on junior-sized gear. She picked up a $300 (retail) pair of hardshell insulated riding pants, junior/boys size XL, for like $75. She's 5'9"-ish and they fit her fine.
