How cold are you talking about? I woke up this AM and it was 19 degrees...Arm warmers really wont do much to keep you warm in that kinda cold =)

but ye....in cool weather arm warmers work very well and the best thing is that you can take them off if you get too warm =)
I say get both =)

i mean in the low 40's and lower. sorry about that.

if i'm cold, i usually wear an A-frame, a thermal, and a t-shirt. cycling shorts and heavier-type wind shorts on legs. upper body and legs are fine for the most part, but my arms get rather nippy.

Arm warmers do work well under a light jacket when the temps get down to around 40 degrees or so. Any colder than that and I leave 'em at home and go with polypro LS shirt, SS jersey, synthetic fleece jacket and the same lightweight jacket (I use the PI Zephyr, but any wind and water resistant jacket will do.)

For more comprehensive advice, check out icebike.com. It's a great resource for us hardy fools who don't think of cycling as a seasonal sport.

BTW, it was single digits when I rode home from work this AM.
