Louis Garneau Knee Warmers $28.95
It's certainly not their only application, but knee warmers such as the Louis Garneau Knee Warmers 2 are popular at cyclocross races. Why? Because they strike an effective balance between providing the insulation you need at the knee and minimizing the total amount of fabric you're wearing. After all, cross races are a messy affair in most parts of the globe, and all that clinging mud and water can weigh you down if you're over-dressed.
The Knee 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 thigh keeps each knee warmer from sliding down and bunching at the knee. Flatlock seams ensure minimal friction against your skin, and a reflective logo on the shin adds some extra visibility. The Knee Warmers 2 also have a UPF/SPF rating of 50.
The Louis Garneau Knee Warmers 2 come in sizes X-Small through X-Large and in two colors: Black and White.

I also have Nashbar knee warmers but these LG?s are a step up in quality and fit. I love that the LG knee warmers actually come in sizes. Some of the cheaper knee warmers are one size fits all which doesn?t really work. I was thrilled to able to get a small sized knee warmer for my skinny legs (I?m 5?9? and 143 lbs.) and they work like knee warmers should. They cover my knee, go down to slightly below the knee, and sit slightly above my knee. My other knee warmers come up and go down way too far making them more like leg warmers. Quality is good and they grip well at the top and bottom. I haven?t had any problems with them bunching up under my knee which is a definite issue with the ones from Nashbar. The fabric is quality and they are fleece lined but not overly warm. I wore them in temps that were in the high 60?s and I kept them on all day. Overall they?re a great knee warmer especially for $29.

Love these knee warmers. Easy to throw on at the top of the climb before the downhill so your knees stay warm during a brisk fall ride. Easiest way to size is by thigh-size. If you have skinny legs, go small, med/avg legs go med, and big quads, go large.
