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)

My son surprised me with the Snap arm warmers for Christmas. Totally love them! I have the Firecracker version, which are 100% perfect. These are shorter (no thumb hole, just goes to the wrist) and a thinner fabric.
I agree with the other reviewer, seems to be a manufacturing issue with the threads on the upper seam- not very stretchy at all. Solved the problem by snipping the threads at several points. Also, the Oiselle decal does stick to itself in the wash process. No damage the first time I washed it but I will be very careful to keep the design flat when it drip dries in the future. (The is not an issue with the birds)
I am a 10 in Oiselle tops, 6’, 165lbs and the arm warmers fit great aside from the thread issue. Super cute and bright. Will continue to buy more of the Firecracker and these in other colors.
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.
