Sugoi Icon armwarmers

With a few notable exceptions, arm warmers fall into one of two categories. You’ve got your skinny Lycra ones for summer mornings and evenings. And you’ve got your thicker, fleecy-backed thermal ones – like these ones from Sugoi – that’ll keep you warm in autumn and spring conditions.

Sugoi haven’t tried to reinvent the wheel here. These are simple tubes of mid-weight polyester/spandex that feel comfortable next to your skin and wick the sweat away effectively. They’re made to Sugoi’s usual high standards and the silicon rubber grippers hold them in place securely without being too tight.

And, to be honest, a major plus point for us is that they’re a bit more interesting to look at that the usual plain design. Available in white, red, black and blue.

Verdict

Well-made mid-weight warmers in an attractive design
