TOO SNUG for athletic/large arms, Nice material.
on August 23, 2011
Nicely made, of 4-way stretchy nylon-type material [fabric weight falls inbetween a man's fine dress sock and a woman's stocking].
The "elbow" area of the sleeve is indeed knitted differently from the rest of the sleeve, though I don't know how much that contributes to the fit.
It is comfortable to wear, and it does seem to block sunrays [I also use sunblock on my arms].
The packaging is bi-lingual, though there are only a few words of English.
Too snug for athletic or big arms. My arms measure about 8 1/2 inches at the wrist, about 13 1/2 ins. at the forearm just below the elbow, and about 15 1/2 inches near the bicep. These sleeves are just too snug [too tightly fitting] to wear comfortably above the elbow. I've been wearing them just on the forearm for cycling; the fit is still snug, but not uncomfortable [I let the excess material fold over at the wrist].
Overall: Nice, well-sewn affordable arm sleeves, but watch the FIT...this is "one size fits most/many" but NOT ALL.
