Pearl IzumiSun Sleeves (Return to Product Page)Add your own review
Usually arm coolers are either to tight or loose..and then sag! These dont..or havent yet.
Act as warmers in the cool mornings..then cooler as the temp increases...esp good when wet...and no sunburned arms
Helped my arms from a sun burn unlike previous rides. They fit well, I actually thought they would hold a lot of arm heat but were cool enough on a day of about 90 degrees. So, yes I will purchase another pair.
Bought these for my wife and we had to exchange them for a larger size. Now that the size is right they look like they will do the job of protecting her from the sun. Won't know for sure until summer.
The new larger size arrived and this one is much better. Not nearly as restrictive yet they stay in place. You'll have to experiment with the size on these but BTD was great with the exchange.
These are exactly what I was looking for to protect against the sun. They do run small to the point of restricting circulation to my hands. I just had to reorder a size up. But if you have sensitive skin to the sun these will do the job protecting you.
To keep the sun off on hot, sunny days, and to keep the chill off on cold cloudy days. The upper arm "gripper" section keeps them from sliding down, yet is not too tight or uncomfortable.
The Pearl Izumi Sun Sleeves are awesome, they never fall down the arm, the fit perfectly. They definitely block the UC rays and are cool to wear. With the cool technology built into the sleeve
This is my second pair. The first one is black. This white one is great to use during the hot summer. It doesn't trap too much heat while providing good sun protection.
These P.I. sun sleeves are the best I've used so far. It's no gimmick, they really do keep you cooler than skin expose to the full summer sun, and the logo is small enough to not intrude on your team kit's summer jersey sponsors.
Great purchase. (White) I use them for everything. Bicycling, driving and even playing golf. As mentioned in another review I have cyclist arms. I am 5â€™ 11â€ and I purchased the large size. They are perfect, snug fitting and nice length
I use these sleeves for shoulder season riding when mornings are cool, but the end of the ride will be warm. They are not bulky like thermal sleeves, but still provide just enough wind protection to keep you comfortable for those times when a jacket is too much and a summer jersey is not enough.
I ride everyday around noon and 3p, so I'm in the sun. Last years (2017) model didn't seem to breathe that well, after a ride it felt like my arms were wrapped in plastic wrap. The 2018 model is much better, it breathe and wicks the sweat. But even after a LONG ride on a sunny day, it still feels good to get the sleeves off. As for sun protection, based on the pale skin after taking my watch off, the sun is still getting through the material, but the arms aren't really dark as compared when I rode without sleeves. I found that pulling the sleeves up the the edge of your riding shirt sleeve, keeps the arm from overheating vs. pulling up to the armpits..
