Skin cancer is preventable
Light as a feather, Cool as a Breeze
50+UPF fabric, provides UVA & UVB protection you never have to reapply, no mess, no missed spots!
Classic Style - The original Sunny Sleevez with hand cover that comes to a point covering up to the middle knuckle and features concealed finger loop for extra secure sun protection
Skate Style - All the same great 50+upf protection as the Classic SleeveZ but without the top of hand cover or finger loop. Skater style is loose around the wrist to give extra airflow & keep arms COOL when the temperature is HOT. For sizing measure underarm to wrist.
How do they stay up?
Much the same way socks stay up! The cuff at the top of the sleeves is slightly narrower than the rest of the Sleeve.
This part fits snugly on the narrowest part of the arm just above the bicep which also helps to stop the Sleeve slithering, djutable button loop allows for additional tightening on upper arm band.
From time to time you will probably have to adjust the Sleevez to ensure continued coverage as they may move slightly with strenuous exercise
Compare to a regular white T shirt which gives only 10-15 spf, & is reduced to only 5 SPF when wet, Sunny Sleevez provide continuous 50+ UPF/SPFSkin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million cases in two million people are diagnosed annually.
To get the best fit for your sleeves, measure around the narrowest part of your upper arm above the bicep.
Divide this number by 2 to get the width (see chart below).
Chose the width that is 1-2 inches smaller as sleeves are very stetchy. Over time, with regular use Sleeves may relax a little.
All S, M, 0 ,1, 2, 3, Sleeves now have a loop and button feature which can be used to make sleeves up to 1 inch tighter on the upper arm.
Skate style sleeves end at the wrist & do not have the top-of-hand cover

MYSELF DO NOT USE SUN TAN LOTIONS AND AM A BIG BELIEVER IN SIMPLY TRYING TO STAY AWAY FROM THE SUN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THERE IS A LOT OF TALK THESE DAYS THAT THE LOTIONS WE POUR ON OUR SKINS MAY ALSO BE CAUSING CANCER. I AM NOT AN EXPERT AND I CANNOT MAKE THIS CLAIM WITH ABSOLUTE PROOF, BUT I CAN SAY I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN LEERY OF THE EFFECTS OF LOTIONS AND WHAT THESE CHEMICALS ARE DOING ONCE THEY ARE SOAKED UP INTO OUR SKIN AND BLOODSTREAM.

Covers from the top of my hand to just under my armpit. I am 5'6" and the Size 2 fit me just the way I like it (I;m a medium in clothes).

I use these sleeves for running... as well as cycling. Great in the cooler months for a bit of extra warmth but also great for wicking away the sweat on longer runs. Summer time- they keep the sun off. So... dual use (summer and winter), cool or warm! i love them- these are my second pair.
