The GripGrab Light arm warmers are meant for spring and early autumn but in reality I have continued to use them well into the British ‘summer’. Barring the recent spell of unseasonably warm weather, these have been worn or in my jersey pocket on most rides.

Rolled together as a pair, they’re about half the size of a standard pair of arm warmers so can fit in any jersey pocket if/when the temperature does get high enough to ride without them.

The GripGrab Light arm warmers are very breathable, so if it’s warmer than you expected or you work hard on a climb but want to stay warm on the descent then they can accommodate a good range of temperatures.

The fit is great, in terms of both length and width. The inner label could be better placed, but this is a very minor drawback to an otherwise excellent accessory.
