Twizy trousers

I don’t seem to have the best circulation, and once my legs get cold they take ages to warm up. I have no windows on the twizy too.

What warm, wind proof trousers are you people using in the winter? Any links please.

thank you.

I use these, and have done for ages! They’re fleece lined and keep your legs toasty in the absence of any heating! I get mine from chums.co.uk. They’ll probably be in the sale just after Xmas (they always are!). Search on their site for Fleece Lined Leisure Trousers.

Thank you,

1 reply and 72 views, it’s must be that others don’t get cold legs like me, or don’t use them in the winter.

Some what unfair, there will be a number of viewers just seeing if there is an answer. I use my Twizy all through the winter and just wore my suit trousers, but with a motorcycle coat so my body was warm. Not even had to get that out this year - yet, a light weight shell walking jacket has been good enough (from Lidl in the same colours as my Twizy). Should I get to needing the trousers then my Motorcycle overtrousers would come out. Before some one thinks there would be expensive, they came with a removable quilted lining and braces from Aldi, so were good value and still look new after several years all round use on a motorbike.

It may be that you would benefit from sealing round where steering column goes through the floor. Take a rubber mat and cut a hole and slot in to it and place round the column on the floor. I see they have done that on the continent but I have not bothered - yet.

Yes it’s just my legs, not got great circulation…I will at the steering column & get some trousers of some kind… Thank you.

Renault (used to) sell a wrap round “joupe” which I think covers the bottom half of both driver and passenger. It may have been designed for women who need to dress “normally” when commuting in the cold. A large fleece blanket works well, though you need somewhere to stow it.

Just take any “ski trousers” above your normal ones.

Tried that - no use. Fine for water ingress prevention, but not heat - as your legs aren’t ‘working’ they don’t retain heat - where as a fleece-lined variant keeps them warm, like wearing a jumper for your legs!

I have a pair of Bear Grylls survivor trousers, not used them in the Twizy, but they are unbelievably warm.
You won’t be disappointed.

I simply favoured a diet of lard and industrial alcohol and wearing a mankini, hat and gloves

It works for me. With my ski trousers i can sit a long time motionless before i even start to feel the cold.
