They're good for working in; leave your arms free.

 You could wear long gloves! :D Lads used to wear them at work as body-warmers, allowing freedom of movement for the arms.

Belaying when climbing. Retains core warmth whilst allowing your arms more flexibility. Other outdoor activities where you want to keep your body warm but allow your arms to get air to prevent over heating. General day to day? Not much use beyond a fashion statement really.

Excellent wear for birdwatching, plenty of pockets, doesn't hamper your movement, doesn't get too warm and stifly.

thanks guys

 

I've been out for a few walks wearing mine and my arms were frozen, especially when it was windy.

Not bad for gardening for reasons you give.

 

still undecided.

Also I look a ###### in one.

Looking at fashion, I once used to sit in a cold bath in order to shrink my jeans. Some years later, I wore 40 inch Rupert type flared trousers. How fashion goes from one extreme to the other.

They're great for cycling at this time of year. You tend to overheat in a full jacket and your arms get soaked in sweat but you still need something to keep the wind chill of your chest. They're very effective when combined with arm warmers. When you warm up you just roll the arm warmers down. Much better for regulating your body temperature than a jacket.

I have one that looks more like a life jacket when I wear it, I look an idiot, its about as far from a fashion statement as you get, I wear it alot!


Mainly over something not so warm, but windproof, ideal for walking the dog this time of year, when inevitably I set off in sunshine but by the time I arrive back the tempreture has plumeted!
