Cool Chaps , did you wear yours often ?

I was here at my desk thinking about Spring being almost here & it won't be long before I start wearing my mesh jacket or armored vest when riding.
I was thinking so far , I have only worn my chaps once this season back in November to the Lone Star Rally.
I usually just wear my jeans & themal bottom pants when riding to work & it's cold.
I like the chaps like on weeknd riding when it's cold ,but this year , they stayed mostly in the closet.

yep , I like them for mostly that reason.
Keeping the bugs & debris off my jeans.
I think also for warmth during cold riding , a pair of insulated bottoms & jeans keep you warmer than chaps.
