These make my 1.2 mile walk to the bus much cooler than with the UPF 50 jacket I used before. The sleeves fit well and are not too tight. Though I had to go a bit long in order to get the arm circumference right, it's no problem as the extra length easily folds up. My frame is just under a large frame and I'm just over 6' tall. I bought the XXL sleeves. Those with much thicker arms will need the sleeves to stretch to fit them. I don't know how this will feel with prolonged use, so just be wary if you have arms thicker than the 3XL measurement.
Customer Service - I haven’t gotten any yet!
I’ve ordered product before and have been pleased. I recently ordered 2 pair of sun sleeves but I only received 1 pair. As requested, I sent a note to customer service with no response - I sent a 2nd note. I got a response saying they would get back to me on Friday. By the following Tuesday, I sent another 2 notes and left a message on the answering machine with my cell number. Still no call or e-mail follow up. I paid for two pair and received one. I’m not a happy customer!
I love them! I would definitely buy them again.
Beyond the sun protection these sleeves actually keep my arms cool, temperature cool. My arms are cooler wearing the sleeves than just being exposed to the air. Great when I play tennis.
Actually, these are my "fishing" sleeves! When it's REALLY hot, I prefer these over long sleeved shirts... lets me wear a short shirt, and get better ventilation. Plus, they really cool you off if you spray them with water (which I find uncomfortable with a shirt). Finally, they don't catch on the many spots on my boat that seem to snag loose garments. Definitely part of my sun-protection arsenal.
