great warm weather sun protection

Using Sun Sleeves instead of sunscreen on warm days (good up to about 85 degrees in moderate to dry humidity) is better than greasy sunscreen. They really do cool your skin better than bare skin by evaporation, and they reflect the sun so they keep you cooler and help keep you visible to cars. I wish they held up to washing better (the seams started to fray after 10 washings) but this is not a deal breaker.

Wonderful concept and execution

I live and ride in the Southwest. We have year-round sunny so I try to avoid it as much as possible. I use sunscreen every time I ride.

I used these the first time on a morning mountain bike ride in Phoenix, AZ. The weather varried from the low 50's to the low 80's. The have a noticable cooling effect at that range. The fabric was comfortable, the sleeve stayed in place, not too tight. I didn't sunscreen my arms and they offered great sun protection.

I'm 170lbs, 6 feet tall. Bought Large.

Again, these are not a warmer in any sense. I thought they might offer some warmth but it's just the opposite. I'm looking for sun legs next!

I'll be wearing these on any ride where I don't need a warming layer on my arms.

Better than sunscreen

This is a cooler alternative to sunscreen. They can be a little warm if you are not sweating, but that is not usually a problem. They are cooler than having the sun beating directly on your skin if they are even a little damp. Snug fit is better than loose. I am 6'4 and 200lbs, I found the XL too big and the L fit nicely-they are even long enough for my long arms.

Most comfortable arm coolers I've found

I've tried four different brands of sun sleevescoolers and these have the best combination of durability, comfort, fit, and coolness. Also the compliance of the material makes them easier to get on and off than other brands.

No mess sunscreen

I often ride long distances in the spring and summer and appreciate having a product on my arms that reduces my exposure to the sun without the mess associated with typical sunscreen products. Sometimes I will dribble some water on the sleeve to cool off a little from the evaporative effect. Too bad they're white, because they don't stay that way very long, eventually getting a little dingy from the dirt and sweat, but it in no way impinges on the effectivness.

The hardest thing for me is to be able to tell right from left. The earliest models were hard to tell apart. I rarely have to adjust the fit after putting them on-they stay up really well. And because I often start my rides relatively early in the day, they are a little warmer than bare skin and do combat a little wind chill. All in all, a pretty good product.

i wear 'em on almost every ride

they are advertised to be 'cooler than nothing' becus they ostensibly reflect the sun before it hits your skin. i think 'cooler than nothing' can be true under some weather conditions, but not all. i have worn these in hot weather and under some conditions they do help. dampen them with tapwater and if it's not too humid outside, it will definitely have a cooling effect. i don't know what they are like in really humid heat.

but here's the cool thing, they help you keep warm on a cold morning, especially under a windbreaker... and when the day heats up, you just shed the outer garment and leave the sleeves on.

there's one thing about really white fabrics... they don't stay really white for long. no matter what laundry torture you subject them to, eventually they're gonna get a little dingy. i'm resigned to that.

also help to increase visibility of your signalling arms at night. you DO signal, don't you?

good deal

Wow! I got these sleeves to protect my aging hide from the sun, but I also got the cooling effect as advertised. They are long enough to cover, and stretch just right to stay put. I got large even though the size chart suggested small...glad I did. Worth the bucks.
