The BEST Arm Warmers
March 23, 2012
I use arm warmers for all of my morning mountain bike rides. They not only keep my arm warm when there is a chill, but they also breath very well when it starts warming up. I generally leave these on for my entire ride unless it gets above 70 degrees. These are, by far, the best that I have used so far. Much more durable and substantial than Smart Wool and much better fitting than Icebreaker. The only thing to be careful of is the size. They definitley run larger than I expected. I am 5' 10.5" and 160lbs. I generally wear a medium in most things and even a large on some. I originally ordered the medium size and they were way too big around my bicep, which measures 11.5". I returned those for a small which fits perfectly. I am sold on wool products with those from Ibex and Icebreaker definitely being the best out there.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Warm, unbulky, comfortable
August 30, 2011
Perfect for cold-cool morning commutes (~30-40F); warm, unbulky, unbinding, doesn't slip, long enough to cover wrists, but stretchy enough to easily move away from watch. Easily adjusts on biceps to allow a bit of pit-venting between short-sleeve shirt sleeve and top of arm warmer. Packs small, stays unstinky. Can't comment on durability yet. I have size small, my biceps max at ~11". It just fits in the forearms and biceps - if it stretches out I may have issues with slipping.Pros: Ease of use

You can't beat the comfort of wool on cool winter days. These lightweight arm warmers are perfect for these conditions and fold neatly to fit in your back pocket when unneeded. The elastic bands keep the warmers in place without the annoyance of rolling down your arms.
Great quality product!

I have not used the product, but looking at its construction, it looks well made and durable. I also have the Smartwool arm warmers and these Ibex arm warmers appear to better made overall, but they are also more expensive. The sizing are for men; for women, make sure you order a size lower than what your normal size would be.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Whether I am biking or running the easiest way for me to moderate my temperature is through a good pair of arm warmers. They are up when I am chilled and pushed down when I need to cool off. The mid weight Merino wool of the Ibex arm warmers is soft and provides just the right amount of protection from wind and weather while retaining its warmth when it is wet. The encased elastic at the top opening keeps the arm warmers exactly where you want them and their stretchy fabric composition provides a comfortable fit without any circulation issues.(I've had this with other arm warmers that are too tight.) The 5 oz. arm warmers are small enough to fit into your back pocket when not being worn and cheap enough to not put a dent in your budget.

I use arm warmers a lot up here in the PNW around the house,outside,biking, & SNOWSHOEING!When trudging up trail i can slide the arm warmers down to cool off when stoping or going down hill(trail) i can slide the warmers up i usually pull a lightweight base layer long-sleeve over a base layer lightweight tee.This system works well for me.Ibex is QUALITY made in U.S.A. and by 2014 ALL of there products are to be made here in the U.S.or Canada.Wool doesn't stink it's very temperature regulating.I find these arm warmers a little on the heavy side (thick) other arm warmers i use are the SmartWool brand and those are thinner and breathe a little better but thats just me.Great product GET IT!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, snowshoeing, bicycling, wear around the house, Cons: Cost
