Stay versatile. These midweight arm warmers give you extra insulation for chilly rides. They're great for days when the weather keeps changing because they pack up small enough to fit in your jersey or jacket pocket when not in use.
Full-stretch midweight base layer with fleece inside to trap heat
Gripper elastic keeps them in place
Spandex in the fabric stretches to improve range of motion
... and I don't mean "great for the price", I mean "great".
I bought these based on my experience with this brand's leg-warmers. These arm warmers are just as good. The upper elastic is grippy, but never uncomfortable. The thickness is "just right" for chillier days.
If there are noticeably better arm warmers out there at any price, I'd be truly surprised. Arm warmers are elastic tubes, they're not rocket science. Once you get them this "right", what else do you need?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I'm 6'2, but skinny upper body. I went with a Medium Tall. It is longer than I need, but not bad.
The wrists are SMALL and TIGHT. There is no properly nourished adult that these elastic wrists would fit. It's not that the wrists are so small, it's that the elastic is so unforgiving. My solution: stick the end of the sleeves in boiling water, then stretch them out and allow to dry.
This is a decent jersey, but nothing special.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
