The special moisture-radiating material actually offers a cooling effect. They are guaranteed to keep your arms cooler in training and in racing than not wearing anything. These sleeves are made of Skin Cooler Stretch material, and they block 75% of UVB rays, which is about as much as any bike jersey you may wear. We recommend you wear sunscreen underneath.

Please use the table below to find the right fit.

The measurements listed are for the unstretched GARMENT. Your upper arm will be 1-2 inches LARGER.

Not so durable

(Avid Cyclist) May 8, 2012

I wear these for sun protection. The problem is they slip down after a couple of months (no, my arms are not pencil thin). The elastic is probably a bit worn, and I could cinch it up with my sewing machine if the fabric weren't so pathetically worn. The fabric itself is practically sheer at this point, 2 years after my original purchase. I have a like-product made by PI, but they are not so sheer after a similar time frame. I have worn them equally as often.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Dry Easily
Cons
  • Wore out after 1 season
  • Slips off
Uses
  • Road Cycling
  • Daily Use
  • Sizing: Feels true to size

sleeves

(Casual/ Recreational) September 28, 2011

I do ultras and have had skin cancer so am always looking for ways to add protection to my sunscreen regimen without cooking myself. I've used the coolwings and been happy that they did not make me hotter (cooler than skin I am not so sure) but wanted something that did not slide off my shoulders.
I followed the measurements chart but had a hard time getting my hand through the wrist cuff. The cuffs are much less stretchy, and the wrist cuff quite small.
I'd also like it if they made a beige or color on which dirt were not so visible. They quickly become discolored and do not wash back to white, so they always look dingy and dirty.

Pros
  • Durable
  • Wicking
  • Dry Easily
Cons
  • Doesn't Wash Well
Uses
  • Trail running
  • Sizing: Feels full size too small

Like them so far.

(Avid Cyclist) April 11, 2011

I never considered arm coolers until I needed some sun protection for my arm after a significant cycling accident that left me with a large patch of road rash from my shoulder past my elbow. Its healed up nicely but needs protection from the sun for several more months. I plan to wear these with sunscreen underneath as directed. They do have a nice cooling effect when wet. I will say they run small. I thought I would be between sizes small and medium. I started with the small and exchanged for the medium which is still snug but ok. I find them tight in the forearm especially and still maybe a little short. I guess they are designed for lizard armed triathletes. They are listed as unisex but I can't imagine the large fitting a guy. This is a nice sun protection option for hot weather.

Pros
  • Sun protection
Cons
Uses
  • Daily Use

Use for a sunny drive or a sunny ride

(Casual/ Recreational) August 19, 2010

I use at least one sleeve for my left arm when driving the car. My commute is N-S, so the sun is always on my left. The sleeves increase my comfort by aleviating that "cooking" feeling as well as protecting from UVs. Have recommended them to other commuters. Also used on bike rides as warmers & sun shields -- worked great!

Pros
  • Versatile
  • Comfortable
  • Wicking
  • Dry Easily
  • Durable
Cons

  • Casual Riding

These really worked in 90+ degree temps

(Avid Cyclist) July 22, 2010

I wore both the arm and leg coolers while riding in the Pyrenees this June. I usually get a heat rash on my legs when the weather is above 90 degrees. I put both the arms and leggings on during lunch stops and they really helped keep me cool and protected from the sun. I also put water directly onto the arm and leggings which also helped keep me cool. People asked "are you cold?" Felklow riders hadn't ever heard of these things, but after seeing how good they worked, many in my group were ready to buy them. The best thing? My legs did not suffer from the heat and I didn't have an ugly heat rash after the rides. Tested products over 7 days, 550+ miles, 90+ degree heat going up Cols such as Tormalet, Aspin and Ausbique; starting in Sitges, Spain, ending in Hendaye, France.

  • Comfortable
