They look a little worn out after washing once - more like they've been washed and worn for several months
on March 1, 2016
I find that these slide down my arms, especially after one wash (delicate cycle, gentle detergent, laid flat to dry). My upper arm is 9.5" so I don't know if that's average or not...but these kind of bother me the way they slide down. Also, I've worn them almost a dozen times and yesterday was the first or second time I felt some irritation at the spot where they end along the upper arm. They look a little worn out after washing once - more like they've been washed and worn for several months.
They do keep my arms warm, but for the price I wish I had just gotten the regular ones - not the shadow stripe. I was afraid the regular ones would be too thick and dense and thus be too warm. Also, these have thumb holes but I mostly wear them for ballroom dance practice and martial arts sword practice (under the gi sleeves because our dojo is freezing cold) so those are not useful for me. The regular ones are a few dollars cheaper and, if I could, I would return these and get those. I don't really think these function well for the price.
