    I have a health/medical problem with my forearms painfully itching-- quite uncontrollably at times. The SmartWool PhD Arm Warmers are perfect in my situation for two reasons: 1) I can slather my moisturizing cream on my arms and then put on these arm warmers to ensure the cream gets absorbed into my skin, and 2) The warmth gained through wearing the arm warmers helps (for whatever reason) to abate the itching. I highly recommend this product. --I cannot tell it is a 2nds.

    Based on reviews I got the XL, even though I'm a skinny-armed woman. They are plenty snug just the same, and still shorter than I'd prefer. But they're a good deal and worth having on hand for colder rides.

    I read some reviews that said these were too tight. I'm not a small woman, but they are fine on my arms. Snug enough to stay up without being too tight. I ordered another set for my 6'4" son because I believe the L/XL will be long enough for him also.

    I ordered the XL and the size wasn't even close. There is no way they would fit the beefy armed guy in the photo either. I gave them to my 115 lb. daughter and they fit her.

    *pro: material very soft
    *con: too long and too wide at the larger end for a 5'2" woman

    I actually prefer to use the calf compression sleeves for arm warmers. The material is significantly thicker than that used in the arm warmers. They also feet more snugly even on lower arms.

    I would have returned except that shipping charge cost more than the arm warmers. I suppose I will find a use for them one day.

    Even though irregular, these are well made and would offer a good breathable alternative to most arm warmers. The problem is size. Sleeve is a tube & too small for anybody with arms.
    They might work for medium sized guy or gal.

    These are the best arm warmers

    They are a little tight. Even the L/XL are a little tight for me & I' 6', 160# with not large arms.
    Wish they were a higher % of wool. I think they will do OK.

    These are nice arm warmers but even the large/Xlarge is a little snug for me. I am 6'0" and weigh 165# and my arm size is
    about normal for that size-not big. Also, it would be nicer if they extended over the hands and had a thumb hole.

    Being new to cycling I have never used arm warmers and wasn't sure whether I would use them, so the low sale price on these made my purchasing decision easy. I think they would be too small for a man with big arms, and they are not very long. But, they were comfortable and warm for me.
