Louis Garneau Arm Warmers 2 $26.95
An alternative to a long-sleeve bike jersey.
How do you plan for changing weather conditions over the course of a ride? By making your outfit as adaptable as possible. For fall, many of us choose to delay breaking out our jackets and long-sleeve jerseys for a more segmented approach--one that includes arm warmers such as the Louis Garneau Arm Warmers 2. When worn with a regular jersey, and perhaps a wind-stopping base layer, they give you insurance against the cold, and the ability to cool off if it warms up.
The Arm Warmers 2 are made of Garneau's HeatMaxx fabric, a polyester/elastane blend with a brushed fleece back to retain body heat. A silicone gripper at the bicep keeps each arm warmer from sliding down and exposing a gap beneath your jersey sleeve. Flatlock seams ensure minimal friction against your skin, and a reflective logo on the forearm adds some extra visibility from the side. The Arm Warmers 2 also have a UPF/SPF rating of 50.
The Louis Garneau Arm Warmers 2 come in sizes X-Small through X-Large and in three colors: Black, White, and Red.
- How to Measure:
- For best results, take measurements over your underwear.

Garneau is one of the few who make arm warmers in extra small. No more drooping or safety pins to hold them up! The fabric is soft, warm and has retained its elastic after a year of wear and washing. Arms of all sizes rejoice!
Functional and Warm
I first wore these on a ride up Independence Pass on May 18. Snow flurries on the way up and clear and cold on the way down. However, my arms were warm.
