Though they?re just as susceptible to sunburn and insect bites, the forearms are often left uncovered and unprotected in warm weather, frequently resulting in burned, bitten and damaged skin. With silicon grip pads affixed to the palm of the breathable, wicking stretch polyester fabric, the Sentinel Sun Sleeves - which can be worn up to the knuckles, with a thumb loop or up to the wrist ? are treated with insect-repellent, EPA-registered Insect Shield and offer UPF 50+ protection for your arms. They're perfect for glacier travel, where a sunburn can sneak up on you.
Simple logic tells us that when the weather is warm, the sun is shining. And while the need to protect your skin rises in this scenario, we all know that long sleeves and arm warmers typically fall under the 'absurd' category when it's hot out. For this reason, Outdoor Research created the Sentinel Sun Sleeves. These sleeves were developed for warm weather, so the thought of overheating should be immediately dispelled. Instead, you gain cooling comfort against the sun's damaging rays. How' Well, Outdoor Research constructed the Sentinel sleeves from UV-resistant fabrics with a minimum protection level of UPF 50. Additionally, these same fabrics have been designated as a Solar Shield product, meaning that you gain a SPF 30 level of protection, as well. Just as importantly, the Sentinel's fabric has been treated with Insect Shield Permethrin insect repellent. Essentially, this is an EPA registered repellent that nearly eliminates the risk of bites, and their potential diseases, from mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, and chiggers. Even better, this repellent is odorless, and it won't intensify from perspiration. In terms of fit, the sleeves are able to be worn to the knuckle, and a thumb hole has been sewn into the hand section. At the top of the sleeve, Outdoor Research secured the next-to-skin fit with a silicone gripper. The Outdoor Research Sentinel Sun Sleeves are available in the color Alloy and in the sizes Small/Medium and Large/X-Large.
Complete summer protection for your lower arms. Outdoor Research's moisture wicking Sentinel Sun Sleeves are rated to 50 UPF, keeping you burn free even during glacier travel. When you make it back down to the lowlands, Insect Shield bug repellent fabric keeps those nasty biting critters away.
