NEW! Swiftly Arm Warmers


Oooh! Now this is something I think I might like. They are new arm warmers made of Swiftly material. They come in Fossil and Black. I'll update when I find a price. Those of you that use these when you run, where do you stuff them once you warm up?

Update - reading these are $32 (but not certain)

I have Lulu arm warmers from a few years ago and have even worn them in a marathon. I don't slip them anywhere - just slide them down around my wrists when I'm warm and pull them back up when I've cooled off. Mine are rulu so it will be interesting to check these out.

Oh, interesting. I keep over dressing for running so I am really thinking about getting a pair of these.

Mine are lightweight enough to roll up and put in one of the zip pockets on the back of my Inspires or Turbo run shorts. These look just as light. I've also tied them around my water bottle (its a handheld).

Side down . Finally something I want to buy! Why not pink, orange, red or anything besides grey and black. Oh well, love the swiftly mat so I will get both and hope they make other colors.

Sometimes I take them off and loop them through the back of my racer back sports bra or tank. They hang there but I don't even feel them and I have a tail ;)

Runners, thanks for your input. I was wondering the same thing as LLA- one more, perhaps stupid question- but these don't seem like they'd do the trick. What temp would these be good for? 60's? I know everyone is different, but just wondering ball park.

MonkeyGirl - Like one of the previous posters, I have a pair in solid black from a few years back that I wear during upper 40's-mid 50's degree Chicago weather. Even though they're black they add for a nice contrast in color with whatever I"m wearing. Very styling.

I line to go short sleeve and arm warmers for 50-60 degrees. Below 50 if no rain or wind

Depending on the fit, I either scrunch them down (as mentioned above) or roll them down (so they end up like a circular tube). If they're rolled down, I find them a little easier to roll back up if the weather changes. Pulling my current sets up when they're a little clammy takes a bit more work than the rolling action.

I'd wear them for upper 40s through 50s until I get warmed up. I've been wearing long sleeves when it's in the mid-50s here and then I get too warm.

Ohhh I'm really excited about these! I hope they come in some bright colours though, arm warmers are supposed to be fun!! That feathery print that was out in some swiftly and run: take flight pullovers would be ADORABLE on these!

I just started running and these look perfect once it gets a bit warmer where I'm at!! I love the swiftly material!

If you want brighter colours, try the Saucony Vizipro, Hot pink or hot orange. Also Sugoi make some interesting arm warmers.

@ anon 3:53 pm - thanks. I need to check those out.

Thanks, guys for the info re: temps. I had no idea these would keep one so warm. Seems like a great thing for spring with the varying temps. A friend also gave me a tip today that you all probably know, but thought I'd pass it on anyways. Before a run in the cold, get dressed to go out, running cap and all, and hang in the house for about 10 minutes. Apparently it makes the start of the run warmer.
