I'm taking Connor to the Zoo on Saturday and since this is Chicago, it might get kind of cold. I don't know if he'll be warmest in jeans, longies or his heavyweight fleece pants. We'll probably be there for a couple of hours. If it's too cold we won't go.<br><br>
I know he'll walk around for most of time, but I am bringing his wagon for when he gets tired. When he's in his wagon I figure I'll just throw a blanket over him.

I think it depends on the actual temp and the wind. If it's windy, I might lean towards jeans or fleece pants instead of longies because they're a little more 'solid' than a knit material. As long as it's not too cold and he's got a warm jacket on, I'm sure he won't notice the cold at all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'd go with the fleece just because it will block those chilly Chicago winds <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Wool longies have holes in them. I've been to Chicago this time of year and the wind was like 20! The actually degrees was 48. Brrrrrrr

I'd opt for the fleece pants, OR the longies with a pair of "wind-breaker" style pants overtop. You know - the really thin nylon ones, like "splash" pants or something.

I would vote fleece pants too or longies with a tighter knit. I have alot of knit longies and some are more tightly knit than others. I have pair that are knit from Peace Fleece and have a very tight knit and are thick and sturdy, when it's cold out I pick those every time. I can't imagine not being warm in them.<br><br>
Do you have any wool fabric pants? Those would be really warm too without any holes for the wind to get through.
