Warm your joints and keep them dry
Protecting your knees from cold rain and mild winter temperatures is just as important as keeping your core warm. If storm clouds threaten to end your ride early, get your knees into a pair of Giordana G Shield Knee Warmers, and ride through the cold and damp.
The knee warmers are made from the Super Roubaix AZ fabric -- a soft and stretchable material with an inner loft that's both warm and breathable. For a perfect, comfortable fit, Giordana used contoured panels with minimal seams throughout the warmers. The Aqua-Zero treatment on the fabric gives it water-repellant properties, and adding to these features, a silicone heat application on the seams fills the stitching and forms a water tight seal. No moisture seeping through means that you can enjoy your 50 mile ride home in the misty weather. And should that ride occur in low-light conditions, the warmers come with reflective accents to increase your visibility. For a secure fit, an elastic gripper on the top hem keeps the warmers in place while you ride.
The Giordana G Shield Knee Warmers are available in the color Black and in sizes X-Small/Small, Medium/Large, and X-Large/XX-Large.

- Q & A
They don't fall down!!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are just the right coziness for me. No bunching behind the knee, but I am on the taller side (for a woman). I am 5' 7" and weigh around 140lb. I got the xs/s and they fit and feel perfect.
I've ridden about 400mi with them, so use is btwn 'through the wringer' and 'several times'.
Great for Cold Weather
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
The Giordana G shield knee warmers are very high quality product. The material provides great wind and water protection.
However, you need to sacrifice comfort for features. I found that the knee warmers weren't as soft against my skin than a fleece leg warmers. The material is thicker which reduces the flexibility of the warmer. The sizing wasn't to my liking as well. I didn't like the fact that it had a lot of excess material behind the knee but I'm a short (5'7 with short legs)
In the end, I had to return them. I didn't have a need for the thicker material living in San Diego and the sizing wasn't for me.
