Stick it to the man.
Plain arm warmers with a Roubaix-like liner are fine when it is just cold, but if you're apt to face serious wind and rain during your ride, then you'll be happier by slipping on a pair of Gore Power Thermo Arm Warmers. Not only do they provide the type of cozy warmth that you want, they have a Wind Stopper soft shell that keeps out the wind and drizzle equally well.
The mix of materials means that the fabric sitting next to your skin will be plush, warm, and moisture wicking, while the outer layer of the arm warmers will be made from the soft shell Wind Stopper material. And though it will repel water and wind as well as your heavy duty Wind Stopper jacket, it will bend and mold to the shape of your arms because the soft shell works like a normal piece of lycra or any other tech fabric. To aid in the perfect fit, Gore has pre-shaped the elbows so that they fit perfectly in place when you're in your position on the hoods or in the drops. The gripper elastic at the top of the arms will hold them in place without any uncomfortable snagging on your skin or arm hair. And the flatlock seams will reduce pressure points so that you won't have the memory of these seams imprinted into your arms for hours after the ride is over.
The Gore Power Thermo Arm Warmers have an abundance of reflective elements on the front and sides so that you'll be visible in low level lighting situations. They come in Black and in sizes Small through XX-Large.

Good material, BUT...
Good wind & rain proof material that kept me warm. BUT the elastic grippers caused internal bleed marks at the top of my arms. I would recommend that you reverse those grippers when wearing them.
