I'm wondering how these fit. I'm a skinny dude. 5' 11" 150#. Most medium size warmers (like Pearl Izumi)I've tried on are too large in the bicep. I'm thinking Castelli warmers might fit since their jerseys always fit small. Any input?

Responded on

Castelli usually fits about a size smaller than Pearl Izumi. I have to ask, though: what's stopping you from getting a small in the Pearl?

If I remember right, the small Pearl Izumi was too tight in the lower arm and good in the bicep. I need something that is more evenly proportioned. I have a friend who has some medium Assos warmers that fit me perfectly but they are really expensive and hard to find. I figured since Castelli seems to be sized for thinner riders, they might fit me better than other brands.
Any thoughts?

I Usually buy one size smaller in the arm warmers then my bib/jersey size. I wear a L in Castelli bibs and jerseys but for arm warmers, leg warmers, and vest I wear a size down which is a medium.
