Van Rysel Cool Weather Arm Warmers
If you're looking for versatile levels of warmth in an extremely light, seamless design, Van Rysel’s Cool Weather Arm Warmers are hard to fault at an excellent price.
As well as being extremely light, these arm warmers are incredibly stretchy, made from 87% polyamide, 13% elastane. Think heavy denier women's tights and you're along the right lines.
The construction is seamless and smooth, with subtly ribbed areas at the top and bottom where they are also double thickness. There are no grippers or other features at all really, just simple knitted tubes of stretchy fabric.
There's no wind resistance in the fabric, but what they do well is give just a bit of extra warmth. They also wick moisture very quickly, and dry well too.
The packsize and weight penalty is tiny so they’re very easy to stow in a back pocket when not required.
One feature that's a welcome side-effect of the soft, lightweight, seamless construction is that they don't interfere with a GPS watch, as some warmers can. The cuffs are soft enough to not cause any inopportune button pushes, but still grip the wrists nicely.
