Pet Peeve of the Day: Jeans.


What is wrong with these pants.

Or, rather, what is right with these pants that makes them so well-loved? Okay okay, so they are fairly comfortable, and of course easy to maintain and clean. In their original incarnation, they were even inexpensive and fairly durable.

But their inability to deal with any kind of weather just makes me mad. They are far too hot when it's warm out. They are of no use when it's cold out. This might not thwart their popularity in relatively temperate Cascadia, but even in these "extreme" temperatures like 40 degrees, jeans are still not nearly warm enough.

Also, you've gotten jeans wet, haven't you? They retain a ton and a half of water, become stiff and stick to your skin, at which point they are colder than no pants at all, not that I've tried this remedy for the problem. They take forever to dry, too.

Yes, I am wearing jeans right now.

    Because they're easy? And outside of my amphib tights, I don't really know of anything that's particularly "good" for riding in the cold
