Great solution for keeping kids legs warm in fall

We tour with our kids and always struggle with what to have them wear throughout the day that is flexible for varying temps without having to keep changing clothes. We finally came up with a great inexpensive solution. To start on a cooler morning we put them in bike shorts and a poly shirt, then light fleece jacket and I put adult arm Warner's on their legs! Everything is easy to take off and put back on as temperatures and exercise levels change throughout the day. We can and do change every stop sometimes but it is really quick to just pull on or off the arm Warner's from their legs. You can even push them up half way if they are I between. This bs been a great solution for our 10 and 6 year olds when we tour. The arm warmers are light and take up no space too.

Sounds good! We have used "babylegs" a lot for this purpose for our infants / toddlers, but they're rapidly outgrowing that solution. They're also useful for a kid in a carrier, where you want to add a layer without stripping off their outer layers first or even getting them out of the backpack.
