Sugoi Arm warmers (black)
Where bought and price
Panthers Cycles - $50
How it is used
Great for chilly mornings, when you know it will be warmer on the return leg, after a croissant and piccolo.
Ideal for those who often shed layers after warming up.
They have a slightly fuzzy inner texture, which feels great against the skin, and is very warming.
There is a rubbery band around the top, which clings to your arm to prevent it slipping off, which is not uncomfortable at all. They have not budged once yet!
They also have a reflective logo on the outer forearm.
+Really easy to out on and remove, even whilst moving - just grab the top band and pull down.
+Very light, easily fits in a large pocket.
- A little pricey (probably cheaper online, but I try to support my LBS).
- Not many colour choices.
I am buying a second pair, so I can wear them to work! I also wear them running and at bootcamp.
I tend to reach a temperature point where I go from comfortable to very uncomfortable in only a few degrees. I like to be able to "tune" my apparel to suit.
If you don't have many long sleeved jerseys, or you don't feel the cold quite enough to want to wear a jacket, then there are a great option.
They are light, super comfy, and best of all, do a great job.
