Swiftwick Olefin Arm Warmers
Swiftwick has just put out a great pair of arm warmers made from Olefin. Slide these form fitting sleeves onto your arms and you are going to be thrilled by the comfort and warmth provided.
Swiftwick products are made in the USA and are made from the only Nobel Prize-winning fiber, Olefin. This fiber retains less than .01% of its weight in moisture. This produces a fast drying, lightweight arm warmer with incredible breathability, superb abrasion resistance and outstanding wear.
Another key feature to the Swiftwick arm warmers is the 200 needle construction. This means less air permeability with superior wicking power. If you have discovered the world of high thread-count bed sheets, you will understand the smooth, comfortable products Swiftwick offers.
These warmers are perfect for a cool morning and then they pack easily in the rear jersey pocket later. I like the subtle graphics which lend a cool look.
A little thicker than your typical lycra warmers which is what i was looking for. So, they are just a little bit warmer. These are almost compression sleeves, so they really stay in place. It can be a bit chilly here in the morning but can heat up considerable by the end of a ride so these arm warmers have been the perfect choice.
Picked up a set of these for myself and my GF for cold weather training. I use it for biking, and she uses them for running, all with great success. Helps keep the lower arms warm and comfortable when the temperatures start to dip. And great for those days when just a t-shirt is too little, but a long sleeve/jacket is too much. Pop these on and remove them when things warm up later in the day.
