Long-Johns just don't cut it.

I bundle up with jackets, sweaters, and scarves during the Winter, but my legs are always cold under my jeans. I've bought two kinds of thermal pants. One doesn't do much, the other makes me colder

The one that adds a little warmth is the waffled cotton kind. I'm moderately warmer with these on under my jeans. But they weren't warm enough. I was still cold! (I don't get how everyone else is walking around in jeans and is fine...) I thought silk ones might be warmer, but ended up getting a sort of fake-silk type pants. They're microfiber and poyester and skin tight, and they say they wick away moisture, etc... and when I wear it, my legs feel colder than without them! Grr! Brr! What is going on here? My GF suggested I wear them both, but that's getting cumbersome. What do people wear on their legs in places like London and Finland where it's actually cold?
