Do you or would you wear arm warmers? I get quite warm when I'm cycling, but at the same time, the wind chill can get a bit cold, especially in the wet. Been looking on the internet and they aren't cheap! Well not for the nice looking ones anyway!

I've got a couple of pairs, but have tended to wear long sleeve base layers instead

As long as I breathe, I attack.
I carry a pair all the time for commuting , it can be a bit chilly at 5 am so i even have a pair of legwarmers .

if you can wait you can get some cheap off ebay from china that do the job , i have some lycra arm+ legwarmers that are enough to keep the chill off and pack down really small .
For winter i prefer to use a vest base layer + armwarmers + ss jersey as i find a long sleeve base layer just makes me sweat to much.

I've never used them, though I can see how useful they could be. I commute in ordinary clothes so can't use them on the commute, Sunday rides I either use running shorts or tights with a short sleeved jersey and if its a little cool I have some very light long sleeved jerseys that will go in a pocket when it warms up.

I've got a pair I got years ago from Halfords, but hardly ever bother. Last time I wore them was 25 September 2011!
