Pearl izumi Thermal Arm Warmer Review and giveaway

I was recently given the chance to review a pair of Pearl Izumi Thermal Arm Warmers.  I was sent a blue pair in size small and medium.  I tried on the small first and needless to say the mediums are still in the package.

What is going on with my bangs here?
Things I love about them:
  • Put them on and get running
  •  Once you are warm, slide them down, or off.  I have tucked them into the back of my tight and run that way too.

  • I love the pretty blue color, they also come in red, black and white.  
  • They have reflective markings on them.
  • There is a little R and L on them to differentiate between left and right, takes the guesswork out of it.
  • Has a very contoured fit
  • I love all the attention to detail.
  • They are made of a soft fleece material that goes against your skin, very cozy.
I like how they are the same color as the sky in this picture.  Sorry for the scary hair and goofy pose.

The sleeve feels nice and snug in the lower arm area but at the upper arm cuff it is a little looser than I would like.  They stay up okay and I don't have to tug them up while I am running but it would feel better if it were snugger.  Fat never seems to habitate on my arms, butt and thighs yes, arms and chest no, so maybe my arms are just really wiennie at the top?

It is also important to note that they sleeves are unisex, and there is an extra small that probably would have fit me snugger, but I am keeping my smalls.  If you are looking for some warm arm sleeves I recommend these.  I have worn them several times with a light t-shirt and stayed toasty warm.

Aww don't you wish you lived in Montana sometimes.

Which leaves the question of what should I do with these mediums? Give them to one of you, of course!  Check out the sizing chart HERE, to see if they would fit you or someone you love.

If you would like to win the mediums leave me a comment!

I was given these arm sleeves free of charge but the opinions expressed are my own.  The value of them is $30. I was in no other way compensated for this review.

  4. I would love them, but I am pretty sure they wouldn't fit. I won a pair a while back but they were a bit to wild for my style so I passed them on to another blogger, but I would love to try a plain colored pair some day.
