The RearViz SL-15 is the Slim Line edition of the RearViz Mirror. Whether you're dodging busy traffic commuting to work or riding in a group, the RearViz mirror gives cyclists a virtual pair of eyes on the back of their heads. The Slim Line RearViz is lightweight and half the size of the Sports and Classic styles, making it suitable for riders with slimmer arms. Although it can be worn by all cyclists, we suggest this style for riders who prefer to mount the RearViz on their wrist or riders who simply prefer something a bit smaller. The Slim Line RearViz also comes with a Universal (one size fits all) Armband, making it a perfect fit any sized arm.

A few reviews complained about the trouble of having to look "clear down to the elbow or arm to view the mirror" (sigh - 1st world problems). Come ON, can you not be troubled to use your side mirrors when driving a car, or are you chauffeured? More complained about the mirror shaking. Yeah. If it's strapped to the same arm that is leaning on a shaking handlebar, guess what mirror is going to shake! It's not an artificial intelligence to make up for user ineptness. The size is clearly stated in the item description. If you're curious about what that looks like on your arm, hold something comparable by your elbow and consider how small things will look in a mirror that size. Yup. They're small.
On the angle view - the wider your shoulders are than where your hands rest on the handlebars, the higher up you're going to have to put the mirror on your arm. For me, with drop handlebars and riding on the hoods, I wear it right below the bend of my elbow. Just tweaking my elbow a little gives me a perfect view of what's coming alongside. I can see car lights before they're right up on me, IF I'm watching the mirror. The thing is, I don't ride along with my eyes on the mirror all the time, or I'd wreck. I do check it often, especially if I'm going to turn or dodge a hole, etc.
The band is very comfortable. On my bare arm, the two velcro straps come together on the back side (about 9.5" circumference), so my arm could be a LOT bigger. The side of the band that I undo to take the mirror off (or put it on) is soft and has that tiny, less obnoxious kind of velcro.
I recommend this and am glad I tried it! Go ahead, and just don't expect it to do your laundry, dishes, & take out the trash. It's a great idea to not give you a blind spot from a helmet mirror.
If you wear it on your wrist, the image is too small, especially given that it has a wide-angle mirror. So it's pretty much useless in that regard -- perhaps even dangerous, as you won't see a car that is not yet upon you (but is about to be).
If you wear it on your upper arm, you have to take your eyes too far off of the road to see the mirror. Might as well turn your head and look.
I rarely return anything. But since this is rather pricey for something that seriously fails to do its intended purpose, I tried to return it. Unfortunately the manufacturer doesn't allow returns of opened packages. I quote:
"If your products are in the original, unopened condition you received them in, you can post it back to the below address and we will issue you with a refund as soon as we receive the products back. Although we do not usually accept returns for 'change of mind' purchases, if your product hasn't been opened, we are happy for you to send it back."
And you'd have to send it to Australia from whence it came (took about 3 weeks to receive?)
It's like someone thought they had a great idea and put it into production, but it's actually a horrible idea. Yet the manufacturer keeps selling it.
I will be purchasing yet another Third Eye Pro mirror. They work very well. I just didn't want to install one on my new Bell Super 3R helmet. Doesn't seem right.
-wide field of view
-easy to use and adjust to your wrist or arm
-have a good quality velcro
-the mirror does not move because have rubber to keep the friction(work even in bumpy rides)
-The strap can be potentially uncomfortable for long periods of time.
-because of the nature of the mirror (wide field of view) is difficult to estimate distances
