Giordana G-Shield Leg Warmers

Giordana's G Shield line made its name as one of the most breathable options in the burgeoning field of race-fit, weather-resistant kit options. The ability to slough off light precipitation and block wind while staying breathable is G Shield's obvious appeal, but the system is also so effective because it's modular. Instead of only full tights, for example, Giordana offers the option of building a flexible wardrobe by pairing G Shield shorts with the AV G Shield Leg Warmers. This lets you tailor protection for just about any conceivable weather conditions encountered from fall through spring. The latest G Shield Warmers feature the same updates as the rest of the line--most notably the new Acqua Zero Eco water-repellent treatment. Giordana claims that the new treatment further improves water-repellency while reducing the manufacturing process' environmental impact. It's hard to argue against either benefit. Giordana keeps the construction to a one-seam affair, too, which reduces the chances of water finding a point of ingress. The warmers also now feature Giordana's new Pixel reflective bands at the ankles, which puts a hit of eye-catching reflectivity at a spot that's constantly moving while you pedal. The idea behind this makes perfect sense: motion plus reflectivity equals a better chance of being seen by other road users. The top hem is finished with a double sided gripper, which glues the warmers to your thighs and your shorts in order to eliminate gaps. If you're running the warmers with the corresponding AV G Shield bibs, then the latter's long legs will probably make coverage gap worries a moot point, but a little extra security is as hard to argue against as the increased repellency and reduced ecological footprint noted above.

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
