I first wore the Canari leg warmers on a cold, June morning as I was volunteering at a bicycle rodeo for Bike Walk Bus Week. It was going to be a long day and I knew I’d be super hot by the afternoon but freezing at 7am. I bought and used the leg warmers and they were perfect, they kept me warm in the morning and in the afternoon all I had to do was take them off, roll them up and store them in my jersey pocket: super simple, super efficient. The polyester material was soft and the grippers kept them up on my legs where they belonged. I was sold on the product and purchased a pair of arm warmers. They have been worn on countless morning rides to keep my arms warm until the sun came out.
I’ve also purchased a pair of the UPF white arm covers. If you know me, you know that I am a fair-skinned, freckle-prone lass of Irish heritage. The UPF arm protectors allow me to keep riding when the sun becomes too much. My dermatologist is a big fan of these and highly recommends them for summer riding.
Canari has done a great job in creating their warmers and protectors and they are one of my favorite things to use on my long trips or weekend rides.
