A letter from the toughest of critics - A TEENAGER!

Dear Mr. Sock Guy,

I recently ran in my second half marathon at the 2010 Carlsbad Half Marathon finishing in 1:45:10 which was a PR! I finished 4th in the Womens 17 year & under Division, 201st out of 4411 women, and 753rd out of 7140 total runners. Woo hoo! I have to say that wearing your SICK arm warmers (the very fashionable pink and black striped kind) helped me survive the day.

This was the first time I ran a race wearing any type of arm warmer as it was 44 degrees (brrrrr) at the 7:30am start. It had to be one of the coldest mornings ever in Carlsbad! Before the race I had to stand outside in the cold morning air for 45 minutes and my Sock Guy arm warmers allowed me to stay warm while I stood in the long line for the Porta-Potty :)

I kept the arm warmers on throughout the entire race as they kept me warm in the start, wicked moisture away from my arms and protected them from the wind during the race, and helped me look LEGIT at the finish line! I have to say that I will wear them again. Attached is a picture of me during the race. Thanks for making a great product!

XC Rules!

Raise the red flag and step back, the range is going HOT!

The Winter Olympics start today in Vancouver but SockGuy and Team USA Archery already have their sights set on London 2012. SockGuy recently teamed up with the USA Archery squad based right here in Southern California to deliver some patriotic custom arm warmers for our guys and gals in the Red, White and Blue!

Made in the USA for the USA, these arm warmers were put to the test in nasty weather earlier this winter during the 1000-arrow challenge where each athlete shoots 1000 arrows in a single day! With crosswinds, rain, and pressure shots the last thing you want to be worried about is a case of shivering arms. These babies are made out of the same moisture-wicking MD Acrylic that our socks are. So whether it's rain, sleet, snow, or sweat your arms are toasty-warm and dry, keeping you focused on the task at hand!

Want some custom armwarmers for your squad? Shoot us an e-mail at and we'll get your crew rocking the SockGuy Luv for your morning rides, runs, guessed it....shoots!
