Craft Shield Arm Warmer
The Shield Arm Warmers from Craft are wind and water repellant, with a brushed fleece inside for just a bit of true insulation and comfort. The move towards full protection with bike gear has been extended to complementary pieces, such as warmers. In general, most warmers over the years have been insulating, perhaps with some wind-blocking capabilities. Craft has developed a 4-way stretch material that provides ideal fit, with some compression, and moisture release properties, yet is also highly protective against the elements. This is the Shield line.
Each item carrying the Shield name must be anatomically designed, be waterproof or highly water resistant, have integrated reflective print, and all use the 4-way stretch Body Control fabric. Craft is keeping the lid on the technology details of how they can make such a flexible fabric so water resistant, but the base material is 100% polyester with a brushed inside finish, and densely woven outside. The material breathes well, with the brushed surface easing moisture off the skin and passing it through the outer layer. Shield technology works, and is ideal for cyclists living in regions where transitional seasons are a mixed bag of, cold, wet, fair conditions, or all of the above on a given day.
The beauty of the Shield Arm Warmer is that the blocking properties enhance the minimal insulation, allowing a relatively low bulk, lightweight warmer pack more punch, and yet can be easily stored in a jersey pocket. The ergonomics make the warmers right/left specific, and elasticized cuffs and external grippers keep them in place under your jersey sleeve. The highly reflective detail will give you excellent visibility. If you need an arm warmer that does more than you'd expect, the Shield Arm Warmer from Craft is a great choice.
