The first thing you notice about the Chpt. /// Arm Warmers is just how soft they are, luxuriously soft and warm. Then you start to notice the little details the cuff that can flip back on itself to reveal a Fire Red (Rosso Fuoco) band and reflective stripe. The soft gripper elastic with the chapter 3 / // /// logo - that same logo on the outside of one arm below a woven badge.....
The Chpt. /// Arm Warmer 1.91 as introduced by David Millar
The colour has been chosen to interchange with both colourways of the 1.11 short and 1.21 jerseys. The material is Castelli's Thermoflex fabric, a step up from the Roubaix fabric that most companies use.
It has a slightly tighter knit with higher loft fleece that happens to be more stretchy. This is useful to cyclists, as we often have to make contortionist moves when searching around to get into our jersey's rear pockets. Or lift a coffee to our mouth. Or reach down to pull our socks up.
Or adjust our shoes. That sort of thing. There is elastic at the top to hold them in place, and a turnable cuff with the Rosso Fuoco reveal and a reflective stripe at the bottom (our little attempt to help those times you get stuck too long in a café and have to race home before it gets dark).
Arm warmers are a little easier to take on/off than knee-leg warmers. Just pull them on or off; try and align the seam so that it runs right through your elbow in a straight line. And please, make sure there is no skin showing between the sleeve of your 1.21 jersey and the top of your 1.91 arm warmer.
