Women's Cycling Armwarmers
Great for running, too!
One week prior to my 8th marathon, the weather forecast was rain and wind throughout the weekend. I bought these on a whim to pair with my luxtreme CRB and pacesetter skirt. So happy I did! The s/m were sold out - but I figured I was m/l anyway (usually a 6/8) and they were perfect. Kept me warm, even though they were sopping wet. Helped to shield my bare arms from the driving rain. Didn't move or chafe either. Highly recommend these for running.

s/m still too big
I like to think of myself as genetically-thin-but-not-unhealthy, but these were just way too big for my arms. I know I've not got the biggest biceps in the world (5'6", 112lbs) but, c'mon, even those Tour de France guys are pretty skinny in the upper body. Sucks because the small in Sugoi armwarmers fits me like a dream, but I haven't found ones by them that are this thin. Plus, there was a weird arc in the profile of the armwarmers that is basically anti-bicep (i.e. it's curved to accommodate "less lean" arms). No good for me. They slid down almost immediately. Sadness. So anyway, if anyone wants a pair of these in the ray or the dots, I have extras...

Loved these armwarmers!
I bought these with the intention of using them for running since I'm not into bicycling. I took them on a whim to the golf course yesterday and actually ended up using them because it was rather sunny and my arms were starting to feel a bit burned.
I really liked how these armwarmers felt! They kept my arms relatively cool feeling even though they were an additional layer -- the fabric seems to breathe pretty well. They really did a nice job of blocking the wind as the course was pretty blustery in the late afternoon. The grippy silicone at the top of the sleeve was great and I never had any issues with them sliding down or anything.
I like these as well because the Power Luxtreme is a more robust fabric compared to say the Swiftly ones that came out earlier since Swiftly is a more delicate fabric. I can see taking these armwarmers out on hikes or camping where a fabric that doesn't easily snag would be a good choice.
I'm contemplating purchasing another pair in a different color :o)

Simply love them. These arm sleeves fit comfortably. OK so they are not compressive but I like the fit since they are light weight. I wear them on early summer rides when I'm battling against wind and sunshine. Purchased them in the seaside dots and wore them with my Goldilocks jersey! Perfect match!

These arm warmers fit mystick arms!
Love the color ray!
I put in a two hour ride (xc mtn) and they didn't shift at all.

size small is too big.....
I own cycling arm warmers by Castelli and CRAFT and they fit super tight and very comfortable. I bought these in Ray because I just love the color but they bunch up and loose on my upper arms. My arms are super lean and i'm pretty muscular especially my biceps.
i fell in love with these but big disappointment.
