I always get hot when I start up the trail, especially when carrying a pack. I start off with a windshell and within a short time I’m sweating and have to take the jacket off and lash it to my pack the rest of the day. These arm warmers are the perfect answer to our problems. They provide just enough warmth at the start of the hike to leave the jacket home. If you take them backpacking they weigh almost nothing and feel great in the early mornings or after you’ve got camp set up and the temps start to drop. Because they’re only sleeves they allow you to vent properly. The smartwool breathes really well and work fantastic with the warmth they provide. Taking them off is as simple as a tug on each wrist and rolling them into a ball to tuck into a side pocket of your shorts. These things will go on every hike with me from now on, part of my 11 essentials.
Smartwool Arm Warmers, gotta love em!
