Water-repellent and warm.
Arm warmers should repel water. Really. Not only should they keep our limbs warm, but they should be there helping keep the rain at bay when we ride in the rain. It's not too much to ask, we don't think, and Hincapie agrees. That's why it added an Acqua Zero treatment to the plush fleece Edge Hydro Arm Warmers, and now they can help keep water out.
Acqua Zero is a simple idea that should be used more often. It's a fabric finish that limits the ability of water to soak into the clothes it is treated with. In practical terms it means that the spray of water whooshing off wheels and drizzling down will bead up, and when it starts coming down hard, it will take some time for the warmers to soak through. They also dry fast when washed (wash on cold only, please).
The treatment is a great finishing touch on a good warmer. The two panel design means it fits your upper and lower arms equally well. The Slip-Knot two-sided silicone bead gripper at the top is there to grip both your arm and the jersey.
The Hincapie Edge Hydro Arm Warmers comes in White or Black. Sizes run from Small to XX-Large.
