UV Arm Sleeves

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the UV arm sleeves during a round? I've been on the fence on purchasing a pair and was curious if any of you bought a set and regretted it afterwards.

I’ve used them on and off with mostly the Nike ones. Last year I started wearing ones from storyi golf and always wear them now. His company has blown up over the last year with several caddies on tour wearing them as some golfers on pga and korn ferry.

I like them because they keep the sweat off me, I don’t get hot in them and they do a good job at sun protection.

Sparms is another brand that has good feedback and is probably the most popular brand on the lpga tour

Not too tight or annoying around the biceps?

And yeah, there’s definitely more caddies on Tour that are wearing the arm sleeves ... and it makes sense.

I have two pair of Nike. Black and white. I used to wear them all the time when I lived up north. They are comfortable and work very well. I do have to pull them up after a few holes. They slip down an inch or two but I am lacking guns! I have more like alignment sticks for arms. 🤣

If sized appropriately, arm sleeves will not be too tight or annoying around the biceps. I don't have any slipping problems with my arm sleeves, they stay in place.

Sized????  I think I have only seen a couple of brands that are sized;  most seem to be one size.

The Nike ones come in 3 sizes - 

  • Bicep measurement size: S/M (10-12"); M/L (12-14"); L/XL (14-16")

I would probably stay away from the one sized options.

SParms has 6 different sizes - https://www.tennisexpress.com/SPARMS-Sun-Protection-Sleeves-Plain-Logo-89914?gclid=CjwKCAjw2ZaGBhBoEiwA8pfP_nKiMLvjtQ9ggODXVACHvjqz5w6B9QQKLJimXiXnIp2GDJmmBYlRphoChmsQAvD_BwE

I  have worn the FootJoy performance sleeves for years and am a big person; 6'2", 260lbs and they are a great fit.  Have had no issues with the fit or performance.  Have worn other brands and others too tight.  Wear them summer and in the cool mornings in the fall.  They come in white, black and grey.  Highly recommend them.   I have three pair and wear the white because they go with all my FJ apparel.  White repels the sun.

I’ve worn them for years- really like- sometimes have a problem with fit(skinny arms) if it’s too warm I sometimes spray water on them.

I use them often.  Started with inexpensive ones from Amazon to save money on sunscreen and I enjoy them.  They do ride down and sometimes it irritates the biceps area but it might be that I haven't had a proper fitting.

... I was given the Nike L/XL sleeves as a gift and they were a little too large and slipped down often. After a little research and trying them on, I picked up a couple pair of the Sparms L white sleeves that I rotate and I really like them. More sheer and lighter than the Nikes and no problem keeping them in place. Since we get bright sun with no clouds most of the time in Phoenix, I think sleeves are a necessity if you play more than once a week.

I have been using the arm sleeves for several years.  I live in AZ and the sun is very intense this time of year.  I don't like many of the sunscreens because they can make your hands slippery.  The sleeves are not hot and in fact some seem to be cooling.  Would definitely recommend if you do not like the sunscreen.  I am not sure how long the UV protection lasts so I replace every year and wash by hand.

I don’t always wear them, but I have 2 pair that I got from Amazon, by ToughOutfitters. I kind of always thought they weren’t very practical, and would hamper my style, but someone let me borrow theirs during a cooler weather round one day, and I changed my mind on them, so I bought 2 pairs and really like them…they also seem to help minimize my tennis/golfers elbow from flaring up.

I’ve used different brands over the last few years and the best I’ve found is from a company called UVoider. The have lots of colors and the sizing is spot on.  Honestly I don’t go outside much without them anymore.
