The Elixir UV Arm Sleeves

The Elixir UV Arm Sleeves provide inexpensive, lightweight protection from sun and bugs, while keeping the wearer cool and comfortable. Worn on a 7-day hike with temperatures reaching the upper-80s, this reviewer was extremely satisfied with the sleeves' performance. The UV Arm Sleeves was an impulse buy, as I used an online gift card given to me at Christmas. Costing $13.99 for a four-pack, I thought of numerous activities this fair-skinned Scot-Irishman might use them for. I started off very skeptical… Full review

The Elixir UV Arm Sleeves

Arm covers to protect you from the sun. Sun protection using lightweight arm sleeves that have numerous color choices. In the hot summer, a long sleeved shirt may make you feel too warm. While wearing a short sleeve shirt, the arm covers prevent sunburn and help keep your arms cool. In the shade, take them off it you want. They compress to a baseball size. I have another pair from a bike gear company that costs $30+ and liked them a lot. I looked online and found lots of black ones that seemed they… Full review

Outdoor Research ActiveIce Sun Sleeves

Out of all the clothes I’ve used for hiking this is by far the cleverest, well executed, and best functional garment I had. I hiked over 1,000 miles with those sleeves, and did it in blazing sun, high altitude high radiation, and hot conditions. I have very white sensitive skin, and I was appalled by the thought of carrying and applying sun screen for the whole trip. Fortunately I came across the ActiveIce Sun Sleeves that offered the ideal solution for sun protection. Pros: Blocks the sun! It… Full review

Mountain Hardwear WayCool Arms

I love these sleeves—the only reason I'm giving them 4 stars is they stretch out with time and they are $30/pair. Worth it to me—I have 3 hours. But, I could not find them on any of the sites listed above, even on the Mountain Hardwear site, and the chat advisor could not find them either!!! I bought them locally in Knoxville at Riversports. I really love these for all the reasons listed above. Full review

Mountain Hardwear WayCool Arms

The Way2Cool sleeves are a rather unique product designed to help keep you cool. They are made with a fabric that Mountain Hardwear calls Cool Q ZERO using an applied “cooling agent” that really does cool you off when you sweat. Weighing in at only 32 g. for the pair I found these very packable sleeves offered comfort, unrestricted range of motion, and did help me stay cooled off. I would recommend these sleeves to runners, bikers, hikers, paddlers, or fly fishermen. Living in the Southeast… Full review

Garneau Arm Coolers

Costly. Fit well if sized correctly. Cool and sunburn-free. Info tag pokes. Latex! LATEX: If you have a latex allergy, do not use these. Info tag pokes your underarm soft skin if you don't fold correctly. Otherwise, they keep the sun off and feel cool. Rather expensive. Full review
