Grippy and Snug.

You wouldn't usually give your casual winter layering much thought, but cycling during the cool months of the year requires some extra planning. The Giordana G Shield Arm Warmers are a smart alternative to too-heavy jackets or jerseys that don't adequately defend against winter weather.

These arm warmers feature Giordana's Super Roubaix fabric that consists of a soft and stretchy material, complete with inner loft that's both warm and breathable. To assure a comfortable fit, Giordana used contoured panels and minimal seams throughout the arms to promote a barely-there fit and feel. Meanwhile, Aqua ZeroEco treatment provides a water-resistant touch, and a single seam construction bolsters your defense against moisture.

Doesn't sit right

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The material on these warmers refuses to lay flat and prefers to bunch up. In particular, the seam between the main sleeve and the reflective cuff is incapable of laying flat.
