I love these. I wore them for the first part of the Pgh Marathon and they were perfect for the 50 degree morning. Super smooth and did not cut off my circulation, even in the hand openings. Way more adorable than a garbage bag.

Pleased I tried these out
I was hoping arm warmers would be the answer to the dilemma of cool/cold weather running: wearing a long sleeve that will eventually be tied around my waist vs. wearing a tank top and freezing at the start of a run. I've been wearing them in temps around 40-55 degrees, and they are certainly answer. Pulling them down when they become too warm always seemed impractical to me, but I wore them during a half marathon, the last 5 miles with them folded down, and they were not a distraction at all. They didn't flop around or look silly.
Lastly, I was concerned these warmers would cut off my circulation once I put them on, but after testing them on a few long runs, I found that it wasn't an issue. They're snug on my thin upper arms (largest point,10"), but not constricting. I be getting a pair of the cable warmers next for colder runs.
