Cycling Weekly Verdict

Overall, the Gore Universal Windstopper Arm Warmers are a good quality and comfortable. They are versatile and the best features are the styling - which goes well with any kit and the Windstopper fabric, which does an excellent job of keeping the wind out while retaining brilliant breathability. I feel the DWR and grippers could be better though

Reasons to buy
  • +

One of the most versatile pieces of cycling clothing, the humble pair of arm warmers are an essential item in any cyclists wardrobe. The Gore Universal Windstopper arm warmers are, as the name suggests, made from a Gore Windstopper fabric, however it is thinner and of a lighter gauge than you will find on a Castelli Gabba or similar jacket.
