The difference between a comfortable and safe ride and one that’s rather unpleasant lies in various bits of kit. In this review I want to turn my attention to the little things that make a BIG difference: arm warmers, knee warmers and full length leg warmers.
The warmers are made with ThermaGuard fabric: which does an excellent job of pushing moisture away from the skin, and maintaining it’s insulating properties. The compressive nature of the fabric gives it a snug, contoured fit – as well as some extra muscle support. Because of the articulated design the warmers move well with the rider…not unlike a second layer of skin. Quite agreeable for athletes known for having well developed legs and pipe-cleaner arms!
My gripe with other warmers is they get saggy, and then begin to creep downward, leaving unsightly gaps in your kit. (Worth an estimated 3 billion anti-style points) Between the fit and the silicone grippers this is a non-issue with Pactimo.
The workmanship is clean and durable. Though my Pactimo warmers outlived products from other manufacturers by a factor of two, Pactimo graciously replaced a set of arm and leg warmers NQA last fall. They have one of the best customer satisfaction policies in the biz.
Together with reflective accents and the thoughtful tough of ankle zippers on the leg warmers, you have an adaptable clothing system to meet varying conditions.
