Pearl Izumi's Sun Sleeves protect you from the sun and won't overheat your arms. They provide UPF 40+ of sun protection on the top and have mesh panels on the bottom for excellent breathability. Plus, they have a left- and right-specific cut for a custom fit.
I bought these for my girl friend who loves outdoor activities, but does not want to tan (or get sun spots). She loves them. No need to put on sunscreen. She wears them when we go biking, hiking, walking. Although they dry quickly, she will wet them to help keep cool on the hot Texas afternoon rides. These stay on, and stay in place, without being too tight or uncomfortable.
I love that she is more willing to do outdoor activities with me.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
