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

As I have aged, my arms have become very sensitive to the sun. I swear, the sun simply wasn't this hot when I was a kid! While looking for sun sleeves, I finally made my decision after seeing the sizing options of these Sun Sleeves. I am a larger woman, 220 pounds. These offered a sizing range that I felt comfortable with, whereas other brands often had no size stated, except for length. I ordered the Large according to my weight and they fit wonderfully, are NOT COMPRESSION SLEEVES which I didn't want to try to wrangle up my arms, yet stay where you put them. In fact, while they are amply snug enough to stay put, I easily wear them while puttering in the garden. While you are told they are machine washable and dryable, I have simply washed them by hand in the sink, a one minute job, and hung them to dry, which takes so little time. So far, nothing has managed to stain them. Highly recommend!

The kids large is to small and the adult size 0 is to large.

I wore these for the first time today in 85 degree weather, under a t-shirt. My arms felt cool and comfortable the whole time. I will be using these regularly to shield my arms from the sun.

I work outdoors in Arizona. Here you have to be conscience of protecting yourself from the sun. These sleeves are light weight, stylish and do not restrict movement. I highly recommend them

Hey, Dashiel and company! I recently got back from a family vacation to the Dominican Republic. My wife, our two teenage girls, and I enjoyed relaxing on the beach in Punta Cana. But one day we went out exploring and ended up zip-lining. Luckily, I had brought my Sunny Sleevez along! It was a hot day, but the sleevez not only kept me cool, but also protected me from a sunburn that many of our fellow adventurers got. Thanks!
Love your product,

There is not much to it really other than it does protect my arms from the sun. My arms don't even get a tan. And it also keeps my arms cool, even under the noon sun. Perfect for outdoor sports like tennis. Much more convenient and practical than putting sun block.

these are great for everyday commuting/riding! I cycle to work in sun and it feels great to have my arms covered with theses lightweight armbands....much nicer than having to cover with lots of sunscreen :)
Make sure you measure your arms :)

Nice product, well made. I live in South Carolina, so this is great to use for extra protection while outside walking the dog or gardening. I'm going to get sleeves to wear in the car next.

I love how these sleeves truly block all the sun.
I burned SUPER easily and so had to wear protection,
No one can figure out what the sleeves are for ... but I love the sleeves!
They keep my hands and arms from aging. They are easy to slip on/off when I go into stores.
Usually, I keep spreading the news that the sleeves are an up and coming trend!
