Warmth will be maintained by genuine leather chaps. Leather’s weather-resistant properties help them to keep out the elements and heat.
During my motorcycle days, I would wear chaps over my jeans when the temp got below 40 degrees F. At first I had flashbacks of Village People and hesitated wearing them, but they sure kept my legs warm.
Seems like one of those areas where practicality wins, and they probably looked pretty cool after a while!
haha. Must not have worn them long enough, as they never looked cool to me
