The Castelli Light Leg Skins are designed for protecting riders' skin from the sun's harmful rays during summer riding. Featuring a lightweight polyester base fabric, the Light Leg Skins quickly and efficiently wick moisture way. With a simplified construction, the Light Leg Skins were kept very minimal to eliminate seams and the chafing they cause, while Castelli's double-sided silicone elastic keps them in place . While they officially rate these at UPF 50+, but in Castelli's lab, their tests resulted in 99.8% blockage of damaging UV rays.

173 cm tall - great fit if youï¿½ve got thick biker thighs because they do occasionally slide down. Not enough for me to not love the product. On the other hand they are so comfortable I would sometimes forget Iï¿½m wearing them when setting up camp and Iï¿½d wake up in them. An added bonus I didnï¿½t expect is they are great wind protectors. Iï¿½d definitely tour with them again. Very light fraying at the elastics after 2000 km of touring.
Bought these so I could quit applying and re-applying sunscreen lotion on my legs while riding in the afternoons and evenings. They work well and don't cause my legs to get hot. They do not feel like they are restrictive and stay up well without sagging. I like the zipper ankles for ease of putting them on and taking them off. I have been wearing them in temperatures between 55 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
The leg skins do thier job wonderfully. Only issue is when I first tried them on a little rip formed near the top of the legging where the material met the gripper. I let our friends at BTD know via online chat and they got everything resolved pretty fast. I sent back the bad set and BTD sent me some new ones upon receipt of the defective ones. I guess it was one of those rare 1/10000 quality defects that happen. Thanks BTD. BFF.
I use these everyday during sunny weather. I need to keep my legs out of the sun and these do the trick. I highly recommend them for anyone do wants more sun protection for their legs. Much easier than using a lotion.
i am 5'712 and 128 lbs 32 inseam. the leg sleeves are the perfect length but a bit tight around my thighs (19) but definitely doable. the grippers at the top are superior to other brands and do not slide down at all!. i use these for riding and tennis. their moisture wicking ability is great and they breathe amazingly well with no overheating. way more efficient for cancer protection than icky suncreen which needs re-applying often. i was concerned prior to purchasing about the performance of these leg sleeves but am a believer now. even though they are a bit pricey they are worth every penny when it comes to protection from the sun's rays.
