Bottom Line:   

Arm warmers are arm warmers. Great for those in-between days where you'll strip them off after warming up.

Being from the land of ice and Snow (Alaska) I have used damn near every cool/cold weather gear available and the arm (and leg) wrmers are great for those warmish days that turn cool to cold. Light and cheap they can come in real handy!

Hey, I'm sure the PI's work fine. But the best arm warmer is Wigwam wool socks with the toe cut off... They're thin, stretchy to fit all but the beefiest arms, and best of all, only $3.99... Plus, they actually look cool, I got some navy blue ones with green/gray stripes... very retrocool.

How many times have you started on an early ride and it was chilly/cold, but you knew it'd warm up later? Wearing a long sleeve
jersey is fine but then you have to haul it around later in the day. Pearl Izumi arm warmers are for these such occasions. Slide them on
when it's chilly, and then slide them down to your wrist when it warms up (such as later in a race) or take them off on your ride and
put them in your jersey or seat bag. Small, light, and it does the job it was designed for.

Bottom Line:   


It's that time of year for many of us where the air is cool but not wintery cold. Sometimes you either underdress or overdress. Well, here is a solution for the upper body: PearlIzumi arm warmers. Wear them when you first start out and when you warm up just either roll em down the wrists (like the racers do, haha) or put em in your jersey pocket. Or if it remains cold just leave them on cuz they do a great job of acting like a jacket for the arms. It's a lifelong investment. Cuz nothing is more miserable than cold body parts on a brisk fall ride.
