WINGS OUT ARMWARMERS
We took our Plya Compression fabric, known for lightweight support, and put it in arm warmers that could also be called sleeve-makers, because they turn any tank or short sleeve into a full coverage garment. Wear them at a race or on a long run, where you know you're going to heat up, and want to shed a layer. With plenty of stretch, they stay on, mile after mile.
- Plya Interlock (poly / spandex)
- one size fits most
- 17" length
I ordered two pairs of these in one of the fall sales, and I was excited to have a small, shed-able layer for those chilly autumn runs. However one of the pairs I had were way too tight around the upper arm -- the seam just had no give at all. The other pair I kept, but about half way through a hard run I had to take them off because it was just too tight on my arm again. I compared these to some other sleeves I got from Oiselle circa 2015 (worn about 5-10 times), and those has zero issue with tight seams at the top, so I am wondering if these pairs were just a bit defective.
TLDR: If your biceps are approximately the same circumference as your forearm, these would be perfect, but for most of us, that's simply not the case :(
These are my favorite arm warmers! The fabric and fit make them stay in place, which is an issue with other arm warmers I've had. I also like that it doesn't have the thumbholes, which I think helps them stay in place. These were even great for a semi-warm day on the bike when I didn't want to get too much sun.
Ok so these are super cute, comfortable and the material is just the right thickness. I have washed these twice, both times in a cold wash. The main bird logo has gotten stuck to itself both times and I almost ripped the material trying to tease apart where the material has stuck together. The logo is all disfigured now. Kinda bummed.
