VeloVixen Orkaan Arm Warmers

Aside from being eminently fun and accessorisable, VeloVixen's Orkaan Arm Warmers are made from Tempest fabric which is water and wind resistant. The protection is manufactured into the garment rather than a treatment that will wash out - so no need to re-apply the protection. 
Wash after wash, these arm warmers will remain consistently awesome and continue to keep you dry, whilst the soft, fleecy roubaix lining will keep you warm. Despite all these weather repellent qualities, the material is still very breathable.
