This is my second pair,had first ones over a year and they are still in great shape so got another pair.
I'm 5'2 112lb busy mom and the small fits perfect and they still look great after many washings.
nice fit and stays on when worn under the shirt sleeve.

I'm 6'6", 185 lbs, and upper arm relaxed is 11 1/2" so I ordered the white medium size. I cycle about 7,500 miles a year. The med. size stays up nicely. With long arms I could use another 2 to 3 inches in length, but for most I'm sure they'd be just right in length. They work super on warm days cycling as you sweat the evaporation makes for a cooling effect, and on cool mornings they add warmth like a thin arm warmer. I like them so well I'm buying a second set for hiking in the desert. I've only worn these 5 or 6 times, so I don't know how they will hold up over time. I had a cheap Knock off pair made in China which did NOT have the cooling effect these do, nor were they warm on cool mornings, so I'm quite pleased.

I am out on the field in the sun for more than 6 hours every Saturday playing cricket. I wanted something to save me from the sun and this item is a Godsend. As soon as i put it on, my arms were cooler than rest of my body. I don't know how it works, but it works great. Saved my skin from sun-burns and excessive tan too.
Great item, must buy!

I was super worried this would be too big but I'm 5'2 and 118lbs and size Small was just right- not too big. I've road without these and then with these and they make a huge difference on those super hot days! Not really sure why more people don't wear them.

I love Pearl Izumi long sleeve (in-R-cool) summer jerseys, but they are friggin expensive. I have plenty of short sleeve jerseys and adding these to the arms for sun protection is just the ticket. I prefer this over lathering my arms with sun screen.

Fitment is a puzzle to me. If I wear Large shirts, should I buy Large sleeves? I don't know! After reading the reviews, I ordered medium. I am 6'0", 185lb. The medium sleeves are a good length. Every short sleeve jersey or T-shirt will cover the proximal end of the sunsleeve. My only complaint is that these feel a little tight and I don't have the biggest guns. Maybe they are supposed to be like compression wear in that respect because that's how they feel. I will probably end up buying another pair in medium just to have a clean pair on hand and certainly don't want sleeves too long if I chance a Large size.

Otherwise, the material quality and stitching is very high quality. Highly recommended.

Edit: I ordered another pair. As I was putting it on for the first time, I noticed a small hole at the stitching on the cuff. Not good since the material is so thin. Definitely check your sleeves' stitching on both ends. I would have returned it but I already cut off the tags. Put a few stitches in by hand so hopefully that will hold--left to it's own devices, the hole would only get worse.

I purchased these sun sleeves prior to riding a Century (100 miles) this weekend, which took about 6 hours. I'm a fan of PI gear - I wore my Elite In-R-Cool bibs and Elite Ltd. jersey as well. We had overcast skies for the first 2 hours, but when the sun came out I put on the sun sleeves and kept them on for the remainder of the ride. They breath well, and feel cool especially when you squirt some water on the fabric! I did get sun on my arms - they aren't opaque. But they did take the place of sun screen and did a good job. FYI, the white color shows sweat and dirt stains very easily. Used a bit of Simple Green on them before laundering, now they're white again.

I use these for all outdoor activities. The sleeves take even the slightest breeze and cools the arms tremendously! Other reviewers said their arms were the coolest part of their body, and they aren't kidding - these sleeves protect against the sun and keep me cool.

Go to the Pearl Izumi web site to their sizing chart to confirm the size you need. I am 6'4" 185 lbs, 25 inches from shoulder to wrist (arm at a 90-degree angle), and 15-inch biceps. The sleeves are a little long so maybe a Medium would have been better. I even have enough room to fold over the upper elastic band; they are a little more comfortable that way. My arm length is in the Large size but everything else was Medium. If you're in between sizes like I am, you may want to go with the smaller size.

These sleeves are great!

It works! You don't need to apply sunscreen on your hands anymore. When you ride on a hot day sunscreen prevents sweat from evaporation. So you aren't cooling fast enough.
With these strange looking things your sweat moves away very fast. It's very thin. Also white ones work as a mirror reflecting sun radiation. So you'll take less infrared (i.e. you'll be cooler).
Must have for southern lands bikers.

I'm an avid mountain biker living in Southern California. I purchased the sun sleeves to give me protection from the sun for my arms. The question is does it work. I'm happy to say this product works very well. Riding in Southern California where the weather in the summer is hot and cloudless and with a high UV this product prevents me from getting sunburn on my arms and also it reduces the sweating on the arms. In fact my arms feel cool even riding with temps in the 90's. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that is out in the sun for any length of time.
