In brief: Raynaud phenomenon

Sensitivity to cold, like you described for your friends may be a manifestation of raynauds phenomenon.
However, if multiple of your friends have similar symptoms it may be a normal reaction to cold and may not be a disease at all. They should try keeping their legs properly clothed and warm.
