Sugoi arm warmers

Name of product
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.

Description
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.

Positives
+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.

Negatives
- A little pricey (probably cheaper online, but I try to support my LBS).
- Not many colour choices.

Additional notes
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.

Reccomendation
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.
