Last week with a little bit-o-luck and EST on my side I won a pair of McDavid Arm Sleeves from McDavid's top Ultra Runner Tim Long. They arrived yesterday afternoon - perfect timing as I was able to try them out in ideal weather conditions - a 20 degree warm up in about an hour on this morning's run. As things warmed up I just rolled them down and let them be at my wrist for a while. I was running on a trail that weaved in and out of all sides of a small mountain and temps would easily change 10-15 degrees in 5-10 minutes depending on which side I was on. When it got cold I just rolled them back up my arm. Eventually the temp and myself warmed up enough to where they weren't needed anymore. They are very easy to put on and take off and can fold up to fit easily into a small pocket on the side of my shorts. I felt like I was able to stay warm when needed with an accessory that fit into the palm of my hand. I've always wanted to experiment with arm sleeves and after one time I can see how very often these will be used. Thanks Tim and McDavid!
