Ripped after trying it on,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pearl iZUMi Thermal Arm Warmer (Sports Apparel)
I was very excited when these arm warmers finally arrived 2 days ago. It's getting pretty chilly here in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, they are a bit too big for me. I am 5'2" 108lbs and I purchased it in extra small, black but I still have to keep pulling it up a little bit. It's also a little roomy in a not so flattering way on the upper arm, especially right where the white stitching is. I'm not sure if it's built as such to give more room to those who are more bulky with muscles, but it just didn't look quite right on someone with a more slender arm. The style and design looks really cool and the good part is that the inner lining material is fleece so it will for sure keep you warm. I thought about keeping it even if it was slightly roomy because all I care at this point is to have something to keep my arms warm so I could continue riding my bike and running, but as a I was taking it off when I tried it on for the first time, it ripped on the wrist area just right where the white stitching is on the side. It has to go back now, the cons outweighed the pros.

"Not so flattering on the upper arm"? What is the matter with you? It's an arm warmer. You should have bought a small, not an extra small.
