"These are rubbish. I bought a size small and the fit is just terrible. I'm 5'9" with average size arms (neither particularly long nor particularly thin), yet these are too short and the fit at the top (where a good snug fit is most important so arm warmers don't slip down) is baggy. Given that they are lycra and have plenty of stretch in them I really don't understand why they are so baggy at the top. Making matters worse are the huge and uncomfortable labels on the inside that are impossible to fully cut out. I've owned many pairs of arm warmers over the years and these are far and away the worst ever."
Pros: cheap
Cons: Low Quality, Poor Fit

"I have tried this cage with several different bottle types and it grips them all so tightly that it is essentially unusable. Removing a bottle is a two-handed wrestle with the cage - no chance of removing it one handed while cycling. I emailed Lezyne to ask which bottle type they recommend using, but they haven't bothered to reply. This cage is junk - if you want a good looking inexpensive cage I'd recommend a Tacx Tao instead. Don't waste your money on this."
Cons: Low Quality, Poor Fit, unusable

"Some things about this trainer are really good, like the fact that its very quiet, the wireless head unit that avoids untidy wires and it feels quite realistic in use (better than Tacx magnetic trainers I have used in the past). I also like the attachment method which must be better for the bike than the conventional fixed attachment.
But some things are not so good, like the fact that it takes a good 30 minutes of fairly hard pedalling before the resistance stabilizes. If you're training with a power meter then that doesn't really matter, but if not then it can be hard to gauge your effort against the power/speed that the head unit is telling you. I find that the power drifts by up to 30 Watts over the first 30 minutes. For anyone using these in a garage where the temperature can fluctuate by several degrees there's another problem - the colder it is then higher the resistance. So if you want to use the speed/power display to track your training then make sure you also record temperature as a cold snap could fool you into thinking you're training is having a negative effect!
The fact that there's no cadence is a bit surprising as well."
Pros: Adjustable, quiet
Cons: Expensive, Not Enough Features, inconsistent

Do these have a fleece type layer?

Some of the past dhb have been simply a lycra layer and other have had a proper fleecy sort of layer that keeps you warmer. The previous versions were the rubaix and earnley if I remember correctly.
No. They are lycra, not roubaix.
