Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are Excellent & Fit Perfectly!!!! Love Them!!! I lose them because I'm so disorganized so I bought 2 pair. They do stay in place & my arms are thin. They are terrific!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small Same as the other pairs I ordered (see other reviews), these were much too tight.
Date published: 2021-07-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight fit These sleeves were much too narrow for my slightly muscular arms. I couldn’t get them pulled up much past my wrist. Returned them and purchased a pair of Men’s which fit great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small sizing on sleeves L/XL fit more like a medium, they are very tight and cut off my circulation so I have to use only to my elbow. I am 170 lbs, and usually wear a L or size 12/14 in all other brands. Thought about trying the men’s which have the bigger diameter listed but I am afraid they will be much too long. The women’s is already long and seems sized forward a tall lanky thin person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun protection sleeves The sleeves are easy to put on and play. They work really well to protect my arms and hands from the sun. I only would enjoy them more if they had mesh material on the under arm part for better ventilation. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!!!! I was apprehensive to buy these because a lot of complaints about them falling down. I bought a small and xs. They are tight & I have thin arms. I haven't worn them for a long period of time so I don't know if they get stretched out. I will put up with them if they get loose. I love them!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sun Sleeves The sleeves did not allow for any stretch. I couldn’t easily slide up my arms and arms in any position but straight at my sides and unbent was uncomfortable due to lack of stretch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice Material but Poor Fit I purchased the L/XL am 175 lbs, normally wear a 12 or L ain most shirts with somewhat muscular arms. There is not much stretch, and I can't get the sleeves up over my biceps. These would likely work well for somebody that orders large for length but doesn't have actually large arms. My friend who weighs 140 pounds and usually orders S or M tops can use them and they stay up. Wouldn't recommend for those over size 10 or who have some arm chubbiness or extra muscle due to the L/XL being on the small side. Wish they fit, the material seems nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe arms under the sun. I had a melanoma removed from my right arm. I do not wish to repeat this experience. So I am really happy that I can wear these arm sleeves to protect from the sun when I’m out on a walk, running errands or driving. I feel safer, and that is a huge upgrade from more dire thoughts that may come about with melanoma.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleeves Liked the sleeves as an alternative to wearing a long sleeve blouse or jacket to protect against sun-rays. I also use mine while on long road trips. The only issue I would of liked to see if there was a way to make the sleeve go higher on the arm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase Being a three time skin cancer thriver, these are perfect for walking the dog outside, I was so happy with my purchase, that I just bought the short ones too
Date published: 2021-05-24
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don’t stay up I bought this item about a month ago to wear while working in the yard. I was really interested in the finger straps feature. They were tight, which I thought meant that they would stay up. They did not. They rolled down and left a gap between by short-sleeved t-shirt and the sleeves. They even started to slip when I was on the riding lawn mower. I ended up not using the finger feature so could get more protection on my bicep/upper arm area. I still have to pull them up, just not as frequently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size is way off. Bought the xl and the upper arm part is what fits my forearm. I’m xl shirts from target so this being so wildly small is shocking to me. I wish they sold forearm sleeves I didn’t want it all the way up my arm anyways. It did come with a storage bag which is great for carrying in my purse so I always have it if I need it. I have a sun allergy and this thing absolutely works. No hives so it’s still 4 out of 5 stars even though it’s wayyyyy to small. Color is beautiful. I should just cut it in half but I’m afraid it will unravel and be ruined. The hand cover flaps a nice option and if I cut it I lose that. But right now it’s so bunched up on my wrists because it only goes up to my elbow ( which is what I wanted anyways ) the extra material is annoying Please make the xl size bigger. And I’d love the half sleeve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Backspin performance sleeves Provides great protection while keeping me cool. I always use them for going to the park with my grandson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleeves Very happy with the quality and how light weight the sleeves are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a must-have for outdoor activities I bought these for cycling. I love the fit because I have skinny arms and they stay up great but if you have beefy arms, I would order a large size. The best part about these is that your hands can slip out really quickly for washing without having to remove the whole sleeve. These cover the top of your hands as well - in all aspects, this is a very well thought out design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again The sleeves are great. I wear them in the car and while I ride my bike. Glad I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I bought 2 pairs of white; are very comfortable and keep me cool. Now waiting for my size in silver and/or gray.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Ordered the L/XL knowing the sleeves probably wouldn't reach my biceps, but maybe I could at least cover my forearms. Unfortunately, no. Maybe I could make them work if I got my husband to help me put them on every single time, but what's the point then? Have to return with no hope for an exchange. Please extend your sizing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Purchase These sleeves provide great protection and don't make me hot. They are more expensive than some of the options available but seem so much more protective to me.
Date published: 2021-01-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Arm Cover The sleeves fit perfectly and will be great for outdoor activities, biking, hiking and fishing!!
Date published: 2020-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good arm protection; runs big These sleeves offered protection for my arms when wearing a short sleeve shirt. I have thin arms and they kept slipping down off my upper arm. I ordered the small size.
Date published: 2020-10-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these sleeves Perfect when driving in the car or outdoor activities
Date published: 2020-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than Expected The sleeves are very comfortable. I was concerned they would be hot, and flimsy, and falling down my arm. Surprisingly, they are not hot, nor do they fall down.
Date published: 2020-10-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely recommend! I think these are great! I mainly use these while driving especially on days I forgot to put sunscreen on. They fit snugly on my arms and don't move around (although I'm not moving very much). Would love to try them with a sport and see how they do...which I think they would do ok. They fit all the way up my arm, above the end of my bicep (perfect for my short sleeve t-shirts). I think they're comfortable and would totally recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performance Sleeves Nice sleeves for active wear, however the sleeves aren’t long enough and frequently need to readjust them at my upper arm. Ordered the XS however these sleeves could be better manufactured to accommodate all sizes of arms especially if this product will be sold as “active wear.”
Date published: 2020-09-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection These are wonderful and fun to wear. It might be a placebo, but I think I feel much cooler with these and a tank or tee top instead of a long sleeved shirt.
Date published: 2020-09-07
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tight I did order a size too small and preferred not to exchange. I typically have the problem of sleeves being too tight in tops so I just assume this product would not work for my arms. Probably better for skinny arms
Date published: 2020-09-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job I use both these and the cotton ones without hand covering. If you are careful you can make either one work to protect your hands. These were particularly good on vacation when I didn't have cycling gloves so I really needed the finger loops to keep them down. They are the most flattering thing on your upper arm, but I suppose that depends on each individual.
Date published: 2020-09-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skin protection! I could still do high intensity workouts while wearing the sleeves without feeling too hot. I also wear them while I’m driving which protects not only my hand but my arms! Love that!
