Love the pockets
Arm warmer and cooler you say? Well yes!
The built in pockets for ice help to keep you cool on a run or ride, or they can hold a few gels, phone, and nutrition. We call it the Arm Cooler. With two pockets, one on the bicep and one on the forearm, you can load in ice in a race situation to keep you cool. We often run with them on the inside of our arm to transfer cooling directly to your blood flow, but you can put them on the outside too!
Price is for a pair. UPF50+ protection.
Material: 82% Polyester / 18% Elastane
Sizing Note: Measure with your bicep flexed! Extra Small is for a 8" to 10" bicep. Small is for a 10" to 12" bicep. Medium is for a 12" to 14" bicep. Large is for a 14" to 17" bicep.
Love the pockets
This is the first pair of sleeves I’ve ever purchased and they are fantastic. I was surprised by how comfortable they are, and they are surprisingly cool. I’m in Texas, where heat and humidity can be overwhelming. I bought these for a 100k run in the hot August sun, both to protect my arms from the sun and to load with ice. The pockets for ice are great - they hold a lot. Quality of the sleeves is top notch. I am very pleased with my purchase.
I ordered the medium and I knew as soon as I put them on they were too tight. I immediately order the next size upmand glad I did. I haven't yet worn them but hope to when I have my next race - I'm excited about the pockets to carry my carmex (never run long runs w/o it) and not have to stuff the co tainer down my bra. I can't wait to try ice in other pockets too.
Nice material and sleek design
I ordered the Arm Cooler with ice storage and couldn't wait to try it out...However, the largest size was too tight on my arms...My arms measure a little over 16.5 inches -- and the description said it could fit up to 17 inches. I LOVE the ice pockets -- however, these sleeves trapped much more heat than the sleeves I currently use.
So, overall I am disappointed I dropped over 30 bucks for something I won't be able to use. I did use them for a week to test under different conditions -- but I am still not satisfied.
I gave three stars because I do think it's a great product -- just not just for me. Hopefully they will one day have a size that can go a little bigger.
Thanks for the feedback Eric! I'd suggest trying the ice cubes in the pockets. It makes a huge difference over a typical sleeve and they are a touch thicker for proper UPF protection as well as slowing the evaporative rate of the ice cubes melting. As far as sizing goes, when you're real close to the size we do suggest sizing up as a bicep flexed varies a lot per person which impacts fit.
