The Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal Lite arm warmers offer a good level of warmth for their low weight and, as a result, are ideal for cool to mild (and dry) weather.
The first thing you’ll notice about the arm warmers is the insanely bright colour. It is, quite literally, blinding, but does team up with a number of other items in the Pearl Izumi range, if you want to match your kit. That aside, visibility is a clear bonus here, but Pearl Izumi also offer the arm warmers in a range of four other colours, including all black.
The warmers have a seamless, knitted construction and are made from a mix of 79 per cent nylon, 18 per cent olefin and three per cent spandex, so they have a softer feel than typical lycra warmers, and feel good next to the skin.
