Cold weather pants alternatives? (denim)?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey SF,

I have a bit of a random question for you.

This summer, I moved to Ottawa. As a native Canadian, I am a custom to cold weather, but I have been warned the weather here is nothing like what I am used to.

I am from the Toronto area, most winter days it doesn't drop much below -10C. I have been told there here, I can expect days in the -30C to -40C range.


In the past, I have just worn standard weight denim all winter and not really worried about it, but I am thinking I might need something a little more powerful this year.

I have found two interesting deigns, both by N&F. The Wool blend, and the blanket lined models, but neither seem to be available. I am willing to spend decent money on a pair of jeans I will wear all winter, but I am also a university student, so please keep your recommendations on the reasonable side.

I am about a 34 waist, most denim I wear a 31-32.

I have been rocking a pair of N&F Weird guy left-hand twill's for the last few months. I am loving them, but on cold night's they are starting to feel pretty thin.


Thanks guys,


TL;DR

I need a recommendation on a warmer alternative to standard denim for a cold Canadian winter.

trousers or lounge pants of some sort. if you get them a bit roomy you can fit thermal underwear under there. i live in northern alberta and denim does me fine, though it's only been -30 here so far.

Get a more relaxed fit and wear heattech or longjohns under them
Just got a pair of relaxed-straight heavy canvas Visvim pants, wear long heat tech tights underneath and I'm pretty warm

Okay, cool. I'll look into that.

Thanks for the advice guys.

Anything in particular I should be looking for in thermal underwear? Brands, places to buy .ect?

Lounge overalls like One Piece's teddy fleece. I can zip it up and down. It beats the chills. I love mine since I got a pair of em back in January. At $290, they aren't cheap but they're toasty warm - especially on cold nights. I wear medium.

Haha thanks for the recommendation, but that's not really what I am looking for.

Something that looks a little more like a standard pair of pants is what I had in mind.


Does anyone know anything about the N&F Blanket lined? Although I still intend on pursuing the long-johns idea, blanket lined pants sound like the perfect thing for lazy days and early morning classes.

Uniqlo has these windproof jeans that might work.

LL Bean has polyester fleece lounge pants. You could also try their flannel or fleece lined jeans. Either one is suitable for cold weather. Just stay away from unlined pants. If there's a cold wind whipping around, you'll be miserable.

I get that you want jeans, but why not consider other options? If you want some seriously cozy pants, get some beefy cords or moleskin might be your best bet. They are so warm and cozy you'll never go back to denim in freezing cold. These for example: http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-833/Slim-Walt--Trouser/Detail
